Forza Horizon 3's First Expansion Set in the Snow, Adds More Cars and Achievements

"Blizzard Mountain" comes out on December 13.


After teasing it earlier this month, Microsoft today officially announced Forza Horizon 3's first expansion. Called Blizzard Mountain, the add-on introduces new challenges for players, as they'll be racing through snow and ice, and during blizzards. The expansion adds new areas in "extreme alpine settings," as well as more race events designed with mountains in mind, and of course new cars.

In an Xbox Wire post, Microsoft explained that there will be more than 50 new events and challenges, as well as more race types like Hill Climb, Descent, and Blizzard. There are 28 new achievements (worth 500 Gamerscore) to collect--you can see a full rundown of the achievements here at the Forza site.

As for the new racing areas, these include places like a "massive frozen lake" and a snow park. There are seven cars unlocked right away and one Barn Find vehicle to discover, as well as snow tire upgrades if you want to race around the snowy settings with cars from the base game.

Blizzard Mountain comes out on December 13 for Xbox One and PC. It's included with the $35 expansion pass or can be purchased on its own, though standalone pricing was not announced.
