New Forza Horizon Trailer Introduces a New DLC Car Pack, but This Time It’s Free

It’s no mystery that I always had an issue with Turn 10’s aggressive DLC policies, but today they released something rather special for Forza Horizon. A new DLC Pack. But wait, before you start throwing rotten eggs, there’s another detail to consider: It’s free.

The package, named Honda Challenge Car Pack, includes three brand new rides: the new 2013 Honda Civic Si Coupe, the 2012 Honda HPD Rally Fit, and the classic 1986 Honda Civic Si Coupe (that you can see in the screenshots and trailer below).

But that’s not all, as the pack brings forth a challenge as well, that can be accessed in the following way:

  • Log in to Forza Horizon with a valid Xbox LIVE account
  • Drive or fast travel to the Horizon Festival and enter the “Race Central” section.
  • Choose “Rivals” from the menu
  • Click on the “Monthly Rivals” channel
  • Find the “Honda Civic Challenge” event and click on it

Honda race driver (and Indy 500 champion) Scott Dixon is going to be setting a time in the event as well, so players will basically compete against him, in addition to each other.

The player that will end on top will win a chance to meet Dixon himself and a custom Honda-branded 250GB Xbox 360 console. Those that will finish between position two and four will still get the console, but won’t meet Dixon.

Of course rules apply and you can find them here. Guess what? If you’re not in the US you can’t participate. Did you expect anything different? Well, at least we get free cars. That’s something.
