Forza Horizon 4 expansions launch in December 2018 and early 2019

Microsoft started off E3 2018 with a bang, taking the wraps off of the latest entry in its Forza Horizon series called Forza Horizon 4. The game takes place in Britain and features numerous enhancements over its predecessor. However, what was most surprising was the announcement that the game would run at 60 FPS on Xbox One X.

As expected, Forza Horizon 4 comes in numerous versions and this time around the Ultimate Edition gives you access to two expansions. Beforehand, players would have to buy them separately which seemed like a questionable business decision. Better yet, the Microsoft Store states that the expansions will launch in December 2018 and early 2019 so you'll always have a steady stream of content.

Expansion 1 (opens in new tab)

This add-on will introduce a new world location, vehicles, and gameplay. The first game expansion is scheduled for release in December 2018.

Expansion 2 (opens in new tab)

This add-on will introduce a new world location, vehicles, and gameplay. The second game expansion is scheduled for release in the first half of 2019.

Following up on the Australian journey packed into Forza Horizon 3, Forza Horizon 4 will take fans to a new location. One of the key features that Microsoft and developer Playground Games are hyping up is the game's dynamic seasons system, which will switch from snow to falling leaves, and plenty of rain, as time goes on.

Forza Horizon 4 is set to launch on October 2, 2018 for $59.99. If you pick up the Ultimate Edition, you can get early access starting on September 28. Forza Horizon 4 will also be available as part of Xbox Game Pass on Xbox One and PC through Xbox Play Anywhere.

  • So they had a small Fast and Furious DLC for FH2 and Hot Wheels for FH3, what other car franchise can they take from? I hope they make a Mad max DLC or a power-up racing DLC (like Blur) or something.
  • Preordered the top end version, so I’m stoked to dig into this stuff as it arrives.
  • I have FH3 and to me it's a lot more fun than Forza 7. And much better than the half finished Gt Sport.
  • I always prefer the open world, go where I feel style of Horizon to the base Forza series, but 7 was and remains incredible. I didn’t play GT Sport, but judging from the earlier GT games I played, it isn’t for me.
