'Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious' Announced For Xbox One And 360, Releases Next Month With All The Familia [TRAILER]
The first thing you should think when you hear that the developers of Forza Horizon 2 are creating a Fast & Furious DLC is 'why did this take so long?'
The second thing, of course, is 'Yes!'. Dom, Bryan, Tej, Roman and all of the 'familia' will be coming to the hit racing game. Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious will hit Xbox One and Xbox 360 on March 27 and will not require Forza Horizon 2 to play.
"Forza is synonymous with racing and fun, so it's only natural for us to work with one of the most celebrated automotive entertainment franchises in the world," said Phil Spencer, head of Xbox. "This is a great way to bring Forza players into the world of Fast & Furious, and in Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious, every fan will get a chance to go wheels-first into the exciting action of the Fast & Furious franchise."
In anticipation of the upcoming - ridiculously over the top looking and amazing - Fast & Furious 7, the game will be free to download from March 27 to April 10. Afterwards, the game will cost $10.
Tej - voiced by Ludacris - recruits you into missions in the south of France, missions and races inspired by both F&F films and Forza's legendary racing style.
While we love absolutely any and all things associated with Fast & Furious, we wonder if the slightly more realistic Forza game is the right fit. The films themselves may have started out being at least somewhat grounded, but they have grown increasingly more realistic - and better - in recent outings. I'm not sure if a game that so prides itself on physics is the proper venue. So, I ask you Forza, will we able to race down a 28 mile runway while trying to destroy a plane? Or battle a tank? Can we drag a safe through the streets of Rio in what is an affront to every physical law of mass and momentum currently known?
I suppose we'll find out next month.
