Forza Horizon 3’s getting a cool Hot Wheels expansion

New, 12 comments

Coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 in May

Hot Wheels are getting around. In addition to a recent cameo in Rocket League, Mattel’s venerable collectible toy cars are also coming to Forza Horizon 3, Microsoft announced today.

Forza Horizon 3’s Hot Wheels expansion — which drops May 9 on Xbox One and Windows 10 — goes beyond just a handful of playable cars. In addition to driving Hot Wheels originals like Bone Shaker, Twin Mill and Rip Rod, players will be able to race on courses based on the toy line’s iconic orange racetracks. That means twisting, looping stunt tracks that players can modify and share in the game’s new Stunt Swap feature.

Here’s Microsoft’s official description of what Hot Wheels will bring to Forza Horizon 3:

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. 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.

The Hot Wheels expansion is part of Forza Horizon 3’s expansion pass, but can be purchased separately for $19.99. The add-on includes the following vehicles, some of which can be seen in the gallery below:

  • 1969 Hot Wheels Twin Mill
