Forza Horizon 2 launching with free DLC vehicle pack

Microsoft has a small lineup of Xbox One exclusives coming this holiday season, the first of which is Forza Horizon 2. The racing title will be available for purchase starting on September 30 and will offer several additional downloadable vehicles at its launch.

A total of 200 vehicles will be available in Forza Horizon 2, although that hasn’t stopped developer Playground Games from creating fresh content for the title’s launch. On September 30, the Forza Horizon 2 Launch Bonus Car Pack will be available to download for free. The pack will include a total of eight new vehicles that show off the variety players can expect in Forza Horizon 2.

Here’s the full list of vehicles included in this bonus car pack:

  • 2003 Ford Focus RS
  • 1997 Land Rover Defender 90
  • 1993 Clio Williams
  • 2015 Ford Mustang GT
  • 1987 Buick Regal GNX
  • 2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV
  • 1968 Abarth 595 esseesse
  • 1956 Ford F-100

In addition to the Launch Bonus Car Pack, Microsoft is announcing details for the Forza Horizon 2 VIP membership and Car Pass. Forza Horizon VIP memberships will cost $19.99 for first time buyers and $9.99 for Forza Motorsport 5 VIP members. VIP members will receive a VIP Car Pack featuring five additional vehicles, 2x player in-game reward acceleration, access to exclusive multiplayer events, in-game gifts and recognition within the game.

The Forza Horizon 2 Car Pass retails for $24.99 and gives players access to six monthly pack add-ons starting as early as October, each pack including a total of five new vehicles.

And lastly, the Forza Horizon 2 demo is now available to download on Xbox One.

That sure is a lot of information to take in, but considering the game is so close to launch, Microsoft has been holding much of this info to make their announcements prior to launch.
