It hasn’t even released yet, but we now know more details on the first DLC for Forza Horizon 4. Dubbed the Formula Drift Car Pack, it’ll arrive alongside the game on October 2.
This isn’t completely out of the blue. Turn 10 hinted at a Formula Drift pack soon after the initial announcement of the game. Soon after, the team teased two of the cars in the July episode of Forza Monthly (a Ford Mustang and HSV Maloo). In the August episode, Brian Ekberg & Co showed all seven models off (drivers in brackets):
- 1989 Formula Drift BMW 325i (Andy Hateley)
- 1995 Formula Drift #118 Nissan 240SX (Alec Hohnadell)
- 1996 Formula Drift #232 Nissan 240SX (Corey Hosford)
- 1997 Formula Drift #777 Nissan 240SX (Matt Field)
- 2006 Formula Drift Dodge Viper SRT10 (Dean Kearney)
- 2015 Formula Drift #13 Ford Mustang (Justin Pawlak)
- 2016 Formula Drift #530 HSV Maloo Gen-F (Josh Robinson)
No, your eyes do not deceive you — there are three separate S-chassis Nissans in the pack. One of them is Corey Hosford’s personal ride. Long-time readers will remember he originally leaked the idea of a drift-themed pack way back in the early Horizon 3 days. As it turns out, Hosford’s “BOSS14” was destined for this pack instead.
What’s more, the pack won’t only be showing up in FH4. Those looking to tame these 1000hp beasts on a track will have the option to do it in Forza Motorsport 7 later this fall, too. Any gamer that pre-orders FH4 digitally will get the pack in both games; first in Horizon, then in Motorsport.
The Formula Drift pack complements the most recent FM7 title update. One of the main features there was a new drift suspension option, enabling players to crank up the steering angle on their own project cars.
Forza Horizon 4 launches the same day as the FD car pack, on October 2. It will also be included in the Xbox Game Pass, starting from the same day.
