We picked up on a report yesterday which pointed towards the possibility that a DLC inspired by the popular Fast & Furious movie franchise might be released soon for Forza Horizon 2. Sure enough Microsoft has now confirmed that this is going to happen. Xbox and Universal Partnerships & Licensing have come together to bring this experience exclusively to Microsoft’s console owners.
An important clarification has been issued by Microsoft. You don’t need to own Forza Horizon 2 to take advantage of this experience. Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious is actually a standalone, open-world expansion, which will put you behind the wheel of 11 cars seen in the Fast & Furious films, including some that you will see in the upcoming Furious 7 movie.
Players will be recruited by Tej Parker, a character in the movie franchise played by Chris “Ludacris” Bridges who also voices the character in this expansion, to source cars for the Fast & Furious crew’s next mission.
As a result you will be put through multiple car challenges in the south of France, a setting that’s inspired by the movies and Forza’s gameplay. As game challenges are completed more cars will be unlocked which you can then drive in the open world.
The expansion will be available for download on Xbox One and Xbox 360 from March 27th. It will be free until April 10th after which players will have to pay $10 to download it. Those who download during the two week window will keep it for free.
