Listed on Amazon.com earlier today, a digital code for the upcoming Forza Motorsport 6 Porsche Expansion Pack appears to have surfaced; a hefty premium DLC package that will retail for $20 and also include Virginia International Raceway. The track first gained notoriety among hardcore sim racers for it’s inclusion in the iRacing.com Motorsports Simulation software, being used as a mock Nurburgring Nordschleife for organized endurance races.
The Forza Motorsport 6 Porsche Expansion pack marks the third time Turn 10 Studios will release a massive DLC bundle featuring cars from the iconic German automobile manufacturer, as an exclusivity deal with Electronic Arts forces developers who aren’t under the watchful eye of EA to negotiate with the developer in an effort to acquire what appear to be temporary rights. Both Forza Motorsport 4 on the Xbox 360, as well as Forza Horizon 2 on the Xbox One have received similar Porsche-themed expansion packs well after the game’s release, so this bundle comes as no surprise to longtime Forza Motorsport fans.
To circumvent the expensive licensing agreement between Porsche and Electronic Arts, many developers opt to forego the lengthy process altogether and instead use aftermarket tuning company RUF in their place. As RUF changes enough with the stock Porsche products to be considered a brand new car, the cheeky loophole has allowed the German brand to still consistently appear in a plethora of different racing games.
