On Sunday, the team behind the Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon franchise revealed a teaser for their highly anticipated expansion Blizzard Mountain, now available to buy on its own as well as part of the Forza Horizon 3 Expansion Pass. The Expansion Pass includes both Blizzard Mountain as well as a second to-be-announced expansion due out in 2017. Blizzard Mountain, however, is out and playable as of 10 a.m. PST (1800 GMT, adjust for your region as necessary) on December 13 and it’s jam-packed with the first snow of the Forza franchise as well as 8 new cars and a host of new races featuring the troublesome weather condition.
While you may have already pre-ordered the Expansion Pass or are planning on just buying Blizzard Mountain, you might have waited to see what the expansion is actually like. No “try before you buy” exists for DLC like Blizzard Mountain, but if you want to check out the icy roads and snowy slopes, the Forza team will be showcasing the area on their Beam channel starting at 10 a.m.
If you don’t know, have forgotten, or just want to see the details again, here’s what Blizzard Mountain comes packing. Not only will you get a ton of new roads to drive, drift, and spin around on, you’ll get 8 new cars including Ken Block’s GYMKHANA 9 2016 Ford Focus RS RX, The 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Group B and 1975 Lancia Stratos HF Group 4, the 2016 Nissan Titan Warrior Concept, the 1966 Ford F-100 Flareside Abatti Racing Trophy Truck, the 2016 RJ Anderson #37 RZR-Rockstar Energy Pro 2 Truck, as well as the 2016 Subaru #199 STI VT15r. There is also a new Barn Find vehicle, so sleuths will have an even greater challenge finding this treasure thanks to the snow.
What good are cars and snow without races to drive in? To remedy that would-be problem, Blizzard Mountain will feature 28 new achievements scoring you 500 Gamerscore, 50 new races, and brand new Hill Climb, Descent, and Blizzard race types. And don’t worry, you’ll be able to buy snow tires for the mountain, or bare-wheel it for a real challenge.
If you’re unsure of Blizzard Mountain’s worthiness to join your map in Forza Horizon 3, definitely check out the stream at 10 over at to get a first look.
