Forza Horizon 2 gets Fast and Furious this week

1 min read


You almost had me? You never had me – you never had your DLC… granny shiftin’ not double clutchin’ like you should. You’re lucky that hundred megabyte shot of updates didn’t blow the welds on the download! You almost had me? Now, me and the mad scientist got to rip apart the controller… and replace the analogue sticks that you fried. Ask any gamer. Any real gamer. It don’t matter if you win by an inch of lag or a dropped connection. Winning’s winning.

Yep, I’m in a Fast and Furious mood this morning, and I’m not saying that just because I’m typing this post while sitting on the toilet after I evacuate some KFC Zinger wings from my trunk. Furious 7 is cleaning up at the box office right now, and thanks to some savvy marketing, the car porn of that film will be featured in Forza Horizon 2. The caveat here being that the DLC will cost you a few beans, for the following cars:

  • 1970 Dodge Charger R/T “Fast & Furious” Edition
  • 1970 Plymouth Cuda “Fast & Furious” Edition
  • 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited “Fast & Furious” Edition
  • 2014 Maserati Ghibli S “Fast & Furious” Edition
  • 1970 Plymouth Road Runner “Fast & Furious” Edition
  • 2015 Dodge Charger R/T “Fast & Furious” Edition
  • 2015 Dodge Challenger “Fast & Furious” Edition

And a freebie:

  • 1998 Toyota Supra “Fast & Furious” Edition

All of those cars are also in the standalone game Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious, which is still free until April 10. From then on, you’ll need to shell out $10 to live your life a quarter of a mile at a time. I’m just happy for any reason to play more Forza Horizon 2. It’s one of the finest racing games on the Xbox One right now, a game where the joy of driving trumps being technical and methodical with your vehicle.

Sure, it may not be anywhere near as realistic as Forza Motorsport or Gran Turismo, but the game is about fun. And looking damn good while you drift through a corner with a ton of American death trap muscle around you.

    Actually, the free Fast & Furious Forza Horizon 2 standalone has got me hooked on Horizon once again! Finished all there was to do in F&F and am now playing Horizon 2 once more – completed the Storm Island dlc last night (well, won the Storm Island trophy… Still more championships to keep me busy). Seriously love this game – such a lot of fun! Even my girlfriend has tried it out (she’s not a gamer, so that was a victory in itself), started loving it and eventually wouldn’t give me back my controller…

        I do. I’m glad you recognise that! For my work in converting the unconverted to the ways of the gamer! 😉 :p
