Forza Horizon 3 fans, start your engines: the game's Hot Wheels expansion pack (opens in new tab) is now available. Along with the wacky, looping tracks that Hot Wheels is known for, the expansion also packs plenty of new cars to check out.

Here's a quick look at the nine new rides included in this expansion:

  • 1969 Hot Wheels Twin Mill
  • 2011 Hot Wheels Bone Shaker
  • 2012 Hot Wheels Rip Rod
  • 2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang
  • 2016 Jeep Trailcat
  • 2016 Zenvo ST1
  • 2007 Toyota Hilux Arctic Trucks AT38
  • 2010 Pagani Zonda R
  • 1972 Chrysler VH Valiant Charger R/T E49

A new campaign is also included in the expansion, tasking you with passing the "ultimate stunt-driving test" on the twists, turns, and corkscrews you'd expect in Hot Wheels tracks spread across six themed islands.

The Hot Wheels expansion pack is up for grabs on both Xbox One and Windows 10 now for $20. If you already have the Forza Horizon 3 Expansion Pass, you'll grab all of the Hot Wheels goodness for free.

  • Add two player mode in split screen and it would get even better... I think this is the only feature missing from this awesome game.
  • Can't wait to play this after work today!! Great game!
  • Can't load the link and can't find it in the store.... Here we go again Playground Games :-\
  • It'll be available in just under 1 hour from now. (6PM UTC)
  • Nice how the article says available now
  • How is it so far thinking about buying it today
  • "Available now" as the article states means it's not actually out yet...apparently.
  • It's "available," but according to an entry I just saw on the Store site, it won't be playable until 10 PDT (UTC-7, = 1PM EDT). Almost there now. :)
  • Oh my goodness, this looks so cool!! Can hardly wait.
  • tempting...looks like a blast...
  • Looking at this brings back memories of Hot Wheels Turbo Racing for PS1. I know it's less arcade-like, but I hope its just as fun!
  • A quick tip for those with the expansion pass. You'll get a very large patch when you first fire up the game today, but that actually isn't the entire expansion. You'll also need to go to the Xbox store, find the Hot Wheels expansion, and trigger the install separately. The system will recognize you own it but it won't automatically install it.
  • Very cool indeed! I hope it's got the Hot Wheels Car Wash where you can squeeze your vehicle in between the two rotating foam pads and shoot the car out faster and further!
