Following a leak last week, Microsoft today confirmed Xbox One racing game Forza 6 is getting a NASCAR-themed expansion. Not only has the expansion been announced, but you don't have to wait to play it, as it's out now.

One of the key additions in the new NASCAR expansion is a World Tour career mode, which Microsoft says includes "over 10 hours of racing." It also has an element of fantasy to it, allowing players to compete in races with combinations of stock cars and open wheel cars, among others.

"Whether battling it out against GT and endurance racers from the world’s top motorsports leagues, sharing the track with open wheelers from IndyCar and Formula E, or testing the limits on classic American ovals like Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Daytona International Speedway, this is NASCAR like you've never experienced it before," reads a line from the expansion's description.

As for the new cars, the Forza 6 NASCAR expansion adds 24 models from racing teams like Joe Gibbs Racing, Chip Ganassi Racing, Stewart-Haas Racing, Hendrick Motorsports, and Team Penske.

Among the cars are those driven by NASCAR stars like Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch, and Chase Elliott. Additionally, Johnson, Busch, and Elliott have lent their voices to the game.

The new track included with the expansion is, as rumored, Homestead Miami Speedway. Forza 6 already had NASCAR courses like Daytona International Speedway and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Forza 6's NASCAR expansion is available today for $20. You can check out this post on the Forza website to learn more about the add-on. The full list of cars in the expansion can be seen below.

The last Forza 6 expansion before this one was March's Porsche-themed add-on.

In other news about the Forza brand, the beta for a version of Forza 6 titled "Apex Edition" launched Windows 10 PCs earlier this month. It represents the first Forza game ever released on PC. Looking ahead, Microsoft has confirmed that all future Forza games will be made for console and PC.

Finally, Microsoft announced today that the Forza franchise has now reached more than 11 million unique players on Xbox One. This figure counts players across Forza 5, Forza 6, and Forza Horizon 2. The next Forza game will be detailed next month at E3.

Are all the cars unlocked and you own them when you purchase like other DLC?

I don't want to drop another $20 on this game. I'll wait until it goes on sale in December, maybe.

Does it come with a schematic on assembling your own mobile home out of cardboard to make playing it feel more authentic?

@sladakrobot: I saw that last year and asked all the xbox heads online how they pulled that off and no one would comment. Console gaming would see a whole new audience if it allowed surround gaming.

@bobafetthatesu: Back in the X360 days ,to play Forza on 3 screens you needed overall 3 X360 linked together and 3 copies of the game.

I doubt the triple screen is running on a ordinary X1,i guess this runs on 3 X1 linked together or a monster pc with X1 settings

So,its average around 3,5 millions players per each Forza game.
That doesnt mean it can represent the salesnumbers as some has (me included)i guess 2 active accounts on their X1.
Still,nice to see Forza is popular.
If Turn 10 made AWDs more competitive,i would be the happiest person alive :-)
