Forza Horizon 4‘s second expansion takes an unexpected turn into LEGO Valley. LEGO Speed Champions features a sizable map, a small selection of cars that have been LEGOized, and a whole host of challenges and features that breaks the mold of prior DLCs and main game offerings. It perhaps is a bit underwhelming for those who were expecting something else out of this, but there’s lots to do and see that’ll make you sing “Everything Is AWESOME!!!”
Fortune Island is the first expansion for Forza Horizon 4, and it mixes the feeling of deja vu with something new. And in the end, it feels like a shallow offering. The new island is an unusual spot for the festival, as it’s a treacherous, and treasure-laden island that resides north of where the main game takes place, and is one not to be trifled with. Fortune Island is a DLC that offers a lot to do, but asks you to make a lot of your own fun as well.

♫ I’m the man on the Blizzard Mountain ♫ The first expansion for the excellent Forza Horizon 3 is Blizzard Mountain, an expansion that wants you to get out of the heat and into the cold. It is a playground and winter wonderland in the mountains of Australia. It feels distinct from the base game to not feel samey, and is one of the best expansions in Forza history.

Microsoft has a lot to prove to their audience for new PC releases. A lot of gaming bridges were burned with “Games for Windows”, and now Microsoft is pushing their “Play Anywhere” initiative. This one is hoping to re-invigorate the initiative where if you buy on Xbox One or PC, you own the game on both platforms. Now comes the time for one of the year’s most anticipated releases for either platform, Forza Horizon 3 to be put under the spotlight of examination on PC.
Forza Horizon 3 busts out of the gate in providing unparalleled freedom to explore, race, and customize.

The party that is the Horizon Festival is one that rivals the hardcore that attend EDC in Las Vegas every year. The unmitigated fun found in Forza Horizon 3 is bereft of police, negativity, and an inability to slow down. You can lose yourself in Forza Horizon 3 for hours constantly saying “okay, one more race.”
The Forza Horizon series always gives players the chance to drive to the music they love, and today we’re excited to unveil that Forza Horizon 3 is taking it to an all-new level! The Forza Horizon 3 original soundtrack features a broader musical selection than any Horizon game before with nearly 150 songs across eight, in-game radio stations. On top of returning favorites like Horizon Pulse and Horizon Bass Arena, several new stations add new and classic hits from genres across hip hop, indie rock, punk/metal, and of course, classical music.
Forza Horizon 2 took the Horizon festival to Europe and allowed you to drive all over the countryside and coastlines in great fashion with mostly sunny skies. Storm Island takes you to a Greek isle in design and location, but is non-descript otherwise. This expansion continues the festival among some terrific looking and behaving weather that does impact your driving and visibility, making me wish there was more to see and do on Storm Island.
