Forza’s best expansion yet, Hot Wheels lets your race loops, corkscrews above Australia

    Forza Horizon 3 is getting another (and easily the best) expansion pack. The Hot Wheels DLC arrives on May 9th on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, and for those of us with the Forza Horizon 3 Expansion Pass, you’ve already paid for it. In this expansion, you’ll get to race brand-new locations above Australia, with insane high-speed stunts on miles of looping, banking, giant iconic orange Hot Wheels tracks.

    As someone who loved Hot Wheels cars as a kid, being able to virtually race on those orange tracks is a pretty appetising concept. Starring famous Hot Wheels vehicles like the Twin Mill, the Rip Rod, and the Boneshaker, Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels promises an automotive adventure unlike anything in Forza history.

    Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels takes players to six new themed islands located off the coast of Australia. These are all connected by a network of Hot Wheels tracks positioned hundreds of feet in the air. You can look forward to some classic Hot Wheels configurations like loops, corkscrews, and more. 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.

    There’s also a good mix of new cars in the DLC as well.
