Forza Horizon 3's Hot Wheels Expansion Looks Freakin' Amazing

Forza Horizon 3's Hot Wheels Expansion Looks Freakin' Amazing

On May 9, you'll be able to enjoy your favorite Hot Wheel cars on some amazing new tracks.

As a cool surprise, Microsoft and Playground Games have revealed the next expansion for Forza Horizon 3. The expansion is focused around the classic Hot Wheels brand, adding new cars and some trippy tracks on May 9.

Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels will feature a new location, an all-new campaign, and ten new cars. The vehicles include the 1969 Hot Wheels Twin Mill, 2011 Hot Wheels Bone Shaker, 2012 Hot Wheels Rip Rod, and 2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang. There will also be non-Hot Wheels cars in the roster, like the 2010 Pagani Zonda R and 2016 Jeep Trailcat.

"Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels takes players to six new themed islands located off the coast of Australia; all connected by a network of Hot Wheels tracks – positioned hundreds of feet in the air – featuring classic Hot Wheels configurations like loops, corkscrews, and more," wrote Forza community manager Brian Ekberg.

"This is stunt driving at its most extreme, where you can master tracks by performing brand new Hot Wheels skills that make use of boost pads, high-bank turns, half-pipes, insane jumps, and even giant mechanical dinosaurs. If you're looking to get creative, check out the new Stunt Swap feature to modify stunt track sections and dare your friends to try them."

The Forza Horizon franchise always has amazing expansions that actually expand the base game with new ideas and mechanics. Forza Horizon 2's Storm Island added a weather system and off-road racing, which became standard features in the next entry. Forza Horizon 3's first expansion was the excellent Blizzard Mountain, offering winter off-road and rally racing. Now we have Hot Wheels. Hopefully all of this will find it's way into Forza Horizon 4 in 2018.
