Here ye, here ye, Porsche is BACK for Forza racing franchise! For the past few years, Electronic Arts held the exclusive rights to feature Porsche cars in their racing games, this obviously meant that other racing franchises had to do without Porsche branded cars in their games, or they had to use models from RUF, the famous Porsche tuner from Germany.
Now, however, there is some good news for Forza enthusiasts and Xbox One owners because the Porsche Expansion will be launching for Forza Horizon 2 tomorrow and the manufacturer will also be featured in the upcoming Forza Motorsport 6.
The Porsche expansion for Forza Horizon 2 launches tomorrow exclusively for Xbox One (sorry, Forza Horizon 2 players on Xbox 360) and can be downloaded from the Xbox store for $9.99.
The latest expansion pack is the result of a new agreement between Microsoft, Electronic Arts, and Porsche. This new deal between the three entities also includes adding Porsche models to the upcoming Forza Motorsport 6.
When downloaded, the expansion pack for Forza Horizon 2 includes 10 Porsche rivals events, 15 new achievements worth 500 Gamescore, and 10 Bucket List – Porsche themed events for players to enjoy.
The pack also adds 10 iconic models from the automaker’s prestigious history to the gamer’s digital garage and they consist of the following:
. 1970 914/6
. 1982 911 Turbo 3.3
. 1987 959
. 1989 944 Turbo
. 2003 Carrera GT
. 2012 911 GT 3 RS 4.0 (997)
. 2014 911 Turbo S
. 2014 918 Spyder
. 2015 Cayman GTS
. 2015 Macan Turbo
For some die-hard Porsche and Forza enthusiasts out there, the amount of cars included in the expansion might not be that satisfying, but hey, at least we finally get to play with ACTUAL Porsche models instead of the tuned or some generic car which vaguely resembles the 911’s iconic silhouette
If this news has not gotten you excited already, the company has also released this brief video to showcase all the cars available in the game and as well as to get your blood pumping. So check it out below and make sure to download the expansion pack when it comes out at midnight.
