Xbox E3 2019: Lego Speed Champions Announced For Forza Horizon 4
Hello, yellow brick road.
We've known for a long time that there would be two big pieces of expansion content coming for Forza Horizon 4, Playground Games' excellent open-world racing game set in Britain. The first, Fortune Island, released late last year, and now the next chapter has been announced at the Xbox E3 2019 press conference. And if you thought the Forza Horizon 3: Hot Wheels expansion was wild--buckle up.
Titled Lego Speed Champions, the expansion will turn Forza's vehicles, maps, and landscapes into, well, Lego. The debut trailer showed Lego cars and Lego racers smashing through buildings and each other in explosions of bricks and color, and tracks adorned with Lego metropolises, pirate ships, Lego forests, and cute little Lego houses. It's all set to the tune of "Everything Is Awesome", the infectious song featured in The Lego Movie. Take a look:
