All Articles: Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious
Two games race their way onto the Xbox Games Store today…
Available for both the Xbox One and Xbox 360, Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious is a standalone expansion to Forza Horizon 2 that includes racing action based on the Fast and the Furious franchise. Best of all, the game will be free from now until April 10 thanks to Universal Studios, which is using the game to promote Furious 7. After April 10, the game’s price will be $9.99.
Also available this week is Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee – New ‘N’ Tasty for the Xbox One. The New ‘N’ Tasty edition takes the original Oddworld game and adds in “improved, deeper gameplay” to a package that also includes enhanced graphics and audio.
More information about both games can be found after the break. (more…)
I will never understand why the Fast and the Furious film franchise hasn’t been the subject of more video game adaptations. You’d think it’s ridiculous action setpieces and even more ridiculous car stunts would it perfect fodder for the adaptation machine. But aside from 2004’s Tokyo Drift game, 2013’s Fast & Furious: Showdown, and a handful of arcade cabinets, the series has been largely absent from the video game space.
That number will expand by one next month when Universal Studios, Microsoft, and the team behind Forza Horizon 2 team up to release Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious.
Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious will serve as a “standalone” expansion to Forza Horizon 2, so even if you don’t own the original game, you’ll be able to experience all the Fast & Furious content on the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Best of all, from March 27 through April 10, the game will be available as a free download to help promote the April 3rd theatrical debut of Furious 7.
So what can Fast and the Furious fans expect? According to a post on the Xbox Wire, players will have to reach ludicrous speeds:
In Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious, you’ll be recruited by Fast & Furious expert mechanic Tej Parker, voiced by Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, to source cars for the Fast & Furious crew’s next big mission. You’ll take part in a series of thrilling car challenges set in the idyllic south of France, and inspired by both the “Fast & Furious” movies and Forza’s awesome, pulse-pounding gameplay. As you complete game challenges, you’ll unlock new cars that you can drive throughout the open world in free roam play.
Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious will be priced at $10 after the promotional period ends.
