Forza Horizon 3 Blizzard Mountain Expansion Out Now
Things are about to get a bit chilly, so wear your warmest racing gloves. Forza Horizon 3's Blizzard Mountain Expansion is finally available on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.
Last night, a teaser trailer for Blizzard Mountain was released showcasing exotic supercars skidding across a frozen lake. The new expansion puts racers in a new area of Austrailia filled with snow, ice, and perilous turns as you try to become the King of the Mountain.
Chances are you'll have to do some serious off-roading through the snow. Thankfully the expansion adds the following cars and trucks that should do the job:
- 2016 Ford GYMKHANA 9 Focus RS RX
- 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Group B
- 2016 Nissan Titan Warrior Concept
- 975 Lancia Stratos HF Group 4
- 1966 Ford F-100 Flareside Abatti Racing Trophy Truck
- 2016 RJ Anderson #37 RZR-Rockstar Energy Pro 2 Truck.
- 2016 Subaru #199 WRX STI VT15r Rally Car
You should also note that you will be able to put on snow tires to any of the cars already in your garage and make it blizzard ready to take part in Blizzard Mountain's three new race types and fifty new events. There's even a new barn car that's hidden away somewhere around the snow-capped mountain.
Anyone using a Xbox One S with an HDR-ready TV will be able to take advantage of the Forza 3's expanded contrast range for some really breathtaking visuals. This isn't available yet on PC, sadly; we can only hope that monitor hardware manufacturers will showcase some HDR displays at CES 2017 in a few weeks to expand HDR availability on PC.
Blizzard Mountain is available separately now for $19.99 or as part of the Forza Horizon 3 Expansion Pass, which gives players discounted access to two expansions for $34.99. There's a $10 discount for all Ultimate Edition owners who purchase the Forza Horizon 3 Expansion Pass before the end of the year.
