Big savings have again arrived for the Forza series for Xbox Live Gold members. In this week’s Deals With Gold, Microsoft has combined Forza Motorsport 6 and Forza Horizon 2 (the Xbox One version) into one bundle, along with other content such as Car Passes and a VIP membership for sale separately.
After last week’s Forza Horizon 3 Xbox One S bundle, players looking for a small dose of two-year-old nostalgia are in luck this week, as Forza Horizon 2 hits the Microsoft Store with savings up to the 75% mark for Xbox Live Gold subscribers.
Things have certainly kicked into a higher gear leading up to the release of Forza Horizon 3 in less than one month’s time. Not only has the game officially gone gold, revealing a unique playable vehicle alongside PC specs and the full list of achievements, there’s even more to this increasingly apparent Horizon celebration.
Back in the early spring of 2015, Forza Horizon 2 had a tie-in car pack (and spin-off, standalone mini-game) with a little movie titled Furious 7. You may have heard of it: not only did it break the record for shortest time for a film to break the $1 billion dollar worldwide gross mark (17 days), it’s gone on to be the second highest-grossing movie of the year. A serious force, then.
Additional content continues to make way to the 2014 open world racer and this month is no exception as tomorrow Forza Horizon 2 is set to receive an additional 6 cars; 5 of which are included in the IGN Car Pack, with the final being available to all players for free. Available tomorrow through Xbox Marketplace and the Forza Hub app, the car pack will cost $5.
Porsche fans don’t usually have much to get excited about when it comes to sim racing – Electronic Arts has a somewhat notorious exclusivity agreement with the fabled German automaker, and rarely allows other games to license their cars.
