Is your Xbox living a quarter-mile at a time? It’s almost enough. Thanks to a new partnership between Universal Studios and Microsoft, one of Hollywood’s biggest car franchises is teaming up with one of the best racing franchises to come. Forza Horizon 2 Reveals Fast & Furiousa standalone expansion is enough Forza Horizon 2. What’s more, the game will be free for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles if you download it between March 27 and April 10 (after that, it will cost you $10).
The game will take advantage of the pre-built game environment Forza Horizon 2, with races and challenges organized on and around the roads of Southern France. But a number of Fast and Furious-specific cars will also be available, including the iconic 1970 Dodge Charger R/T that appears in many movies. Players will be guided through the game by Tej Parker, played by Ludacris, who will be tasked with finding vehicles for the crew’s next big mission.
This is not the first Fast and Furious video game, but it stands a better chance of being the best. We already know that Tan 10’s Go ahead the physics engine is amazing, and the open world that Sports Games has built looks amazing (and very much like the real thing, as I saw on a recent trip to that part of the world). The fact that the game will be free for a season is also a welcome change from the industry’s much-hated practice of charging for DLC (even if there are ulterior motives behind the practice in many pilot games).
