Microsoft’s Forza Horizon 2 game on Xbox One will have a “Fast & Furious” expansion inspired by Universal Pictures’ “Fast & Furious” film series. This expansion will be available on March 27 for Xbox One and Xbox 360. It will be free until April 10 to promote the April 3 release of “Furious 7” movie and after that this expansion will cost $10. The game will include cars such as 1998 Toyota Supra, 1970 Plymouth Road Runner, 2012 Nissan GT-R, 1970 Plymouth Cuda, 2013 Jeep Wrangler, 2014 Maserati Ghibli S and 2015 Dodge Charger.
Set before the movie, the game casts players as a driver in France tasked with sourcing vehicles for mechanic Tej Parker (portrayed by Chris “Ludacris” Bridges in the films and game). The automobiles are virtual renditions of those in the “Fast & Furious” movies, such as the iconic 1970 Dodge Charger R/T driven by Vin Diesel’s character Dominic Toretto.
“We’ve been talking with the folks at Turn 10 for a number of years and have always wanted to work together,” said Bill Kispert, executive vice president of digital licensing at “Fast & Furious” studio Universal. “It was a matter of schedules, capacity and a film coming together at the right time. It finally has, and we’re excited to collaborate with Turn 10.”
