Forza Horizon 4 launched a few months ago, and gamers are loving the open-world racing experience. The game features upgraded visuals and a shared world for an even more community-focused experience. The user feedback seems to be great, and the title has also garnered a lot of critical acclaim from numerous outlets. The game currently sits at a 92 on Metacritic from over eighty reviews.
During the X018 event, Forza Horizon's Chief Designer Ben Thaker-Fell announced the first expansion for the game called "Fortune Island." Fortune Island launches today and takes players to the remote northern reaches of the British Isles. If you're familiar with the region, you know to expect extreme conditions like fierce lightning storms, dangerous cliffs, dirt roads, and the aurora borealis.
Fortune Island is available as part of the Expansion Bundle which gives players two game expansions for $34.99. However, if you already own the Ultimate Edition or the Ultimate Add-ons Bundle, you'll receive Fortune Island at no cost. If you haven't played the game in a while, now's a great time to jump back in.
A report that came out a few weeks suggested that Forza Horizon 4 has doubled its launch player count over Forza Horizon 3. This might be a result of Xbox Game Pass because the game is available at no additional cost to anyone who subscribes to the service for $9.99 a month.
