    So yeah, apparently this is it. I'm not sure how I feel about it but it looks like fun.

    It feels like the wild run add on on the crew. They seem to follow the money now.

    Is it a GTA mod?

    Goodbye FH3. It was fun. Thank you.

    That looks AWESOME! As an avid hotwheels collector and fan of the old PC Hotwheels games, this looks absolutely stunning.

    You're right, it has a great potential. Simply not what I expect from FH to enjoy the slower cars.

    So apart from the Hot Wheels cars, we have:

    Pagani Zonda R
    Zenvo ST1
    Toyota Arctic Trucks Hilux
    Jeep Trailcat
    Chrysler Valiant Charger

    Seems like we keep getting those leaked cars, they're almost gonna be done now.

    This might just bring me back to FH3. I am honest-to-God hyped for this expansion, out-of-the-wall stuff like this is definitely up Horizon's alley. I knew buying the Expansion Pass when it was 25 bucks was a wise move...

    Oh my god, I have laughed myself to tears. I was expecting a drag or hot rod pack, not... This.

    Well, should've seen that coming - May is Hot Wheels month now, boys and girls. Honestly, I think it's the best possible DLC they could've come up with - and I am eager to see how well Hot Wheels loops go with Forza's physics-based approach. Plus, WE ARE GETTING TWIN MILL! And the Zonda R. Wunderbar.

    I don't like it. :( (was expecting something else)

    Even if I'm a Hot Wheels collector and well, these kind of races in The Crew Wild Run and GTAO were pretty fun but looks out of place in Horizon.

    Where's my mountain pass? Ok, I may give it a chance as I've got the pass.

    *Edit: I've seen it again and that thing in the end. Thats cool.

    I had a good feeling the expansion would be something crazy when Porsche turned out to be a regular car pack. The thing is, we already had a mountain expansion albeit a snowy one. I've always wanted to try the stunt tools in GTA Online but I've never gotten around to it. This looks like a perfect alternative that can be enjoyed in singleplayer too.

    Just like in FM6, I don't care much for the Hot Wheels cars but those twisting stunt lanes look incredibly fun with all the altitude and jumps. Great bonus if the expansion also brings cars like the Zenvo. First ever Danish car in a video game if I'm not mistaken. I cannot ignore that. :D

    I've moved all the relevant posts to their own thread. :tup:

    I'm... really not sure how to respond to this. It looks like a bunch of fun, but any talk from T10 and PG about FH3 being a semi-sim can be thrown out the window now, especially to casual onlookers.

    On the other hand, this really does play to the talk of wanting to tie together all automotive enthusiasts. Who doesn't love Hot Wheels?!

    I really hope that the continued embracing of the more out-there arcade stuff in Horizon means FM7 will move further into sim territory.

    It's definitely unique, this might seem like the fun. Like the stupid kind of fun, but fun

    I think any talk about FH3 being a "semi-sim" fell of the cliff overlooking the Twelve Apostles together with the car I jumped from there... And I believe that with Horizon becoming the main draw for casual players and Motorsport having to face a much stiffer competition in the future, we may see the latter become more of a simulator.

    For me, FH was like Test Drive and FH2 with the French Riviera gives a nice Test Drive impression. This expansion is probably very fun but it's like the breaking point for the semi realism.

    I really don't give a crap about the hot wheels stuff. I do like the jacked up Hilux, though.

    I dont like this. April fools again?

    To be fair, some people might see the fun in this, and at the very least, its something different. However, im sure this will turn shallow soon. Looks more like TrackMania or MicroMachines then Forza. That being said, i dont like the direction this franchise is taking. I will skip this.
