I haven’t really been a racing game kinda girl in years. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I will happily vroom vroom with the best of them if I’m at someone’s house or an event or something, but I don’t go out of my way to play driving games. I see the appeal, though, especially if you get the chance to virtually drive vehicles you’d never get to drive in real life. Forza has always been about the joy of that fantasy for me, and now there’s an even cooler fantasy that you can experience in the new Forza Horizon 3.
The game has gone gold, by the way, which means it’s off to the disc printing factory. But while that’s busy happening, the team has also revealed a new vehicle that fans will be able to drive through the desert.
The Warhog will be given via code to all the Halo Xbox One fans. How do they know you’re a fan? Well, if you’ve played Halo 5: Guardians or Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Xbox One. Easy enough. If you are a Halo fan but simply haven’t played either title yet, you can still win the Warthog through a special “#Forzathon event” in October.
Obviously, the game also comes with a ton of achievements for you to earn and boost your precious gamerscore. Here they all are.
