There are few better games on any modern video game console than “Forza Horizon 3.”
It’s a killer racing game — the best ever made — but it’s also just a fantastic game. One of its strongest features is its variety: There are dozens of cars, SUVs, trucks, and other vehicle types to drive in “Horizon 3,” to say nothing of environmental variation. You’re just as likely to fly down a twisting coastal highway in this Lamborghini as you are to fly over sand dunes in an off-road buggy.
There’s just one thing missing from the massive open-world of “Horizon 3”: Fantastical, gravity-defying madness.
That’s where the new Hot Wheels expansion comes in!
Check it out below:
As you see in these ridiculous images, the expansion is a completely different take on the typical racing in the 'Horizon' racing series.
That means not just Hot Wheels-based cars, but also 'miles of looping, banking, giant, iconic, orange Hot Wheels tracks.'
But just because they're Hot Wheels cars doesn't mean they're not insanely detailed, as the 'Forza' games are known for meticulous craftsmanship.
The expansion contains an entirely new campaign mode that's set on 'six new themed islands located off the coast of Australia.' The islands are connected by Hot Wheels track, loops and all.
Though, if we're being honest, the most appealing thing here is the entirely new type of racing being introduced.
Flying around turns -- high in the air, on a track with no guard rails -- is going to be nuts. No doubt we'll be putting the game's rewind function to regular use.
One of the new cars included is this 2016 Jeep Trailcat, an ultra-rare SUV that can't actually be purchased in reality. It was specifically built with the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah in mind.
