Today’s the day Forza Horizon 3 players start seeing a lot more orange, as the Hot Wheels Expansion is now available for the open-world racer.
Weighing in at around 3GB, the expansion adds the beloved model toy brand to Australia. The lineup of new cars was detailed last month when the expansion was announced, but here’s a quick refresher:
- 1969 Hot Wheels Twin Mill
- 2011 Hot Wheels Bone Shaker
- 2012 Hot Wheels Rip Rod
- 2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang
- 2016 Jeep Trailcat
- 2016 Zenvo ST1
- 2007 Toyota Hilux Arctic Trucks AT38
- 2010 Pagani Zonda R
- 1972 Chrysler VH Valiant Charger R/T E49
In addition to the new vehicles, the expansion adds over 70 miles of new roads to explore. The famous orange plastic track makes up a large portion of this, including booster pads and loops. According to a preview stream yesterday from Hot Wheels HQ, not all cars will be able to handle the latter: anything less than 50 mph will make for a bad time.
The preview stream also confirmed the addition of a tenth car, hidden as a Barn Find. In a series first, the mystery car will be able to have its roof chopped. Expect to see a lot of hot rods, then. Achievement hunters will find 500 additional points up for grabs via the expansion too.
The Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels Expansion is now available on the Xbox Store for both PC (Windows 10) and Xbox One. It retails for $20 USD on its own, or as part of the $35 Expansion Pass (which includes Blizzard Mountain).
Players won’t be able to access the new content in-game until the FH3 title update arrives in a few hours, however. Stay tuned for a comprehensive run-down of the update once it’s live.
