To celebrate the release of Furious 7, Microsoft launched a special Fast and Furious DLC pack for Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox One (as well as the Xbox 360). Up until the 10th of April, you will be able to download the standalone expansion for free. Afterwards, it will be priced at $10. While you can use the Xbox One Wireless Controller to drive these famous cars, the experience is exponentially better if you have a racing wheel. Below is our list of the best Xbox One racing wheels and add-ons that you may want to purchase to get the most out of Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast and Furious.
About Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast and Furious
First let’s talk briefly about the latest expansion. Unlike the Storm Island pack, which added a new location, the Fast and Furious DLC uses a portion of the same area from the main Forza Horizon 2 game. The main selling point, of course, is the attachment to the film series.
You get to participate in multiple events with narration provided by rapper Ludacris, who plays Tej Parker in the movies. Successfully completing the objects will unlock cars like the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, 1970 Plymouth Cuda, 1970 Plymouth Road Runner, 1998 Toyota Supra, 2012 Nissan GT-R, 2013 Jeep Wrangler, 2014 Maserati Ghibli S and 2015 Dodge Charger for use in the free roam mode.
Needless to say, Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast and Furious is worth trying for free out even if you are not a big fan of racing games.
