Who doesn't love a free ride? Especially when it's in one of the cars from the explosive, high-octane Fast & Furious movies. For most people, getting the keys to these cars IRL is a no-go, but there's an alternative: the worlds of Forza Horizon 2 and Fast & Furious collide this week in a free (for now!) expansion that lets you burn rubber in the series' most iconic vehicles.
Launching just in time for Furious 7 to hit theaters, Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious, a high-speed expansion for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, will be free to download from March 7 to April 10 — and you don't already have to own Forza Horizon 2 to grab it.
This time the open-world racing action unfolds in the south of France, where the Fast & Furious team's expert mechanic Tej Parker — voiced by Ludacris — recruits you to lock down rides for the latest mission. From there, you'll head off on a series of open-world racing challenges across the beautiful French countryside, getting access to increasingly killer new wheels as you prove your racing mettle against tough-as-brass opponents.
With this expansion pack, you'll have plenty of opportunities to sightsee, free roam, and snap pics of your favorite cars as you speed through the game's gorgeous settings. You can share any great photo mementos you capture with fellow fans on both the Forza Hub App on Xbox One and the Forza website.
You'll also unlock Fast & Furious editions of the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, 2012 Nissan GT-R, 1988 Toyota Supra, 2014 Maserati Ghibli S, 1970 Plymouth Road Runner, 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, 1970 Plymouth Cuda, and more. Each ride is brimming with authentic visual detail and precise handling to give true auto lovers the high level of realism they crave.
Fast cars, frenzied racing fun — and all for free? Yes, please!
Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious will be absolutely free on Xbox 360 and Xbox One for two weeks starting March 27, so grab it while you can. After April 10 it'll cost $10 to download. So what are you waiting for? Gun it!
