Forza Horizon 4 Expansion, Fortune Island, Adds a Dangerous New Area to Race In

Lightning strikes twice.

Playground Games announced the first Forza Horizon 4 expansion, Fortune Island. Playground says this is the largest expansion its ever made. Fortune Island adds lightning storms in what they call the most dangerous and exciting expansion.

Fortune Island is a rocky island full of dangerous turns, jagged terrain, and more. Playground didn't announce any release date, but it's cool to see a major content expansion announced so soon after the launch of the game.

Forza Horizon 4 added seasons into the game to mix up how players experience the many tracks in Forza Horizon 4, but with the added lightning storms it's safe to say that Forza Horizon 4 is no longer driving safe.
