The Only Two Forza 6 E3 Videos You Need To Watch…

Sometimes, other people are able to say more about a topic than we can. Both MotorWorldHype and Gamespot have put out two fantastic videos previewing Forza Motorsport 6. While it wont feature bikes as we predicted, the game’s car roster of 450+, new tracks such as Daytona and Brands Hatch, plus the introduction of the Logitech G920 Racing Wheel, mean the boys at Turn 10 will be putting out something revolutionary for the Xbox 720 three months from now.

Porsche Expansion coming to Forza Horizon 2 revealed yesterday that like Forza Motorsport 4 on previous generation consoles, Forza Horizon 2 will have it’s own dedicated Porsche expansion. The announcement came by accident, as Turn 10 simply uploaded the wrong video at the wrong time – the DLC was expected to be announced during E3 2015 in a few weeks time.

porscheForza fans have every right to be happy, as Forza Horizon 2 was very well-received and generally regarded to be the best racing game currently available for the Xbox One.

Could we see Motorcycles in Forza Motorsport 6?


What you’re looking at in the above picture are extracted files from the Forza Horizon 2 Xbox One disc. From the user, who most likely wishes to remain anonymous, “I cracked open the ISO for Forza Horizon 2. Noticed there are files for a Ducati 998 and a ZX14. Could be other stuff but that was a quick glance. I’ve only spent 5 minutes digging around.” Another comment the user made was “[there are] a lot of bike engines for swaps. I think the Radical was the only one to use a bike sound.”

Adding motorcycles to an Xbox-exclusive racing sim is nothing new. Project Gotham Racing 4 back in 2007 added motorcycles to the lineup with mixed results – riders were often bullied online by their four wheeled companions and the addition resulted in a significantly reduced car lineup, but on their own the bikes drove very well.

Really interesting discovery regardless of why the files are there. Could it be a precursor to Forza 6? Or were bikes originally going to be added to Horizon 2 but scrapped due to time constraints? Motorcycles also made an appearance in another open world driving game, Test Drive Unlimited, but were strangely absent for the sequel.


The “Fast and Furious” Expansion Pack for Forza Horizon 2 has only 30 minutes of racing

Xbox One user “The Shrekkening” recently posted a photo of his completed results screen for the new “Fast and Furious” Expansion for Forza Horizon 2. The game’s free expansion pack, released today, featured “less than 30 minutes of racing”, and collecting all of the expansion’s achievements took less than two hours of playtime.1427441312329

While not exactly a big deal for a free expansion pack, this has been pretty hyped for the last month or so, as the Fast & Furious franchise has always lacked a relevant video game tie-in. Previously, F&F games were usually considered shovelware, so the franchise partnering with Forza was seen as a huge move in the right direction and users rightfully expected something a little more than this.

This is also not the first time an expansion pack for the Forza Horizon series has been woefully underwhelming. 2012’s Horizon promised a huge map expansion somewhere during the game’s run of post-release DLC, although by the time this expansion came out, it had been priced at $19.99, was little more than tarmac sections of the existing map covered in dirt, and could be completed in about an hour. What eventually became known as the Horizon Rally Expansion also introduced game-breaking upgrades such as the off-road tires that made every car overpowered as fuck on dirt.
