Forza Horizon 3 – Blizzard Mountain Expansion Release Date Confirmed!

Microsoft have confirmed a release date for their first Forza Horizon 3 expansion pack, Blizzard Mountain! Any fan of the HBO show, Game of Thrones, knows the often coined phrase, ”Winter is coming!” This time it is coming to Forza Horizon 3! The new expansion pack is due to arrive on December the 13th and will bring Alpine conditions to the Forza franchise for the first time. Snow, ice, blizzards and extreme elevations are some of the most testing driving conditions imaginable. Players’ skills will definitely be tested to the limit. The new expansion pack is loosely based on the Snowy Mountains area, which is located near the New South Wales and Victorian borders. Included in the new Blizzard Mountain pack will be eight new purpose-built cars for Alpine racing and hillclimb events.

Some of these cars include the mythical 1975 Lancia Stratos HF Group 4, Focus RS RX and the 2016 Subaru #199 WRX STI VT15r Rally Car. Players will be able to upgrade any Forza Horizon 3 vehicle with condition appropriate snow tyres. So, if you fancy taking the Lambo or any of your favourite FH3 cars up into the mountains for some alpine fun, you can!
