Dom! Forza Horizon 2 got a (wolf) pack of cars!

Eight cars, five dollars

Some of us live a quarter mile at a time. Some of us are always fast and furious, not just when we're Fast and Furious. Some of us have nitrous oxide for blood, and a gas tank for a brain. If speed's your everything, your re...

Feb 25

Time to get your Stig on

Forza gets Top Gear love
Feb 03
If you're a car junkie, then you should be very familiar with Top Gear. Microsoft is hoping that familiarity will lead to DLC sales as the Forza Horizon 2 Top Gear Car Pack has just been made available to Xbox One racers for $5. Have a look at the list of cars available (including a freebie):

Forza Horizon 2's first DLC takes places at the ominous Storm Island

Gee, I wonder what happens there
Dec 16
Forza Horizon 2 shipped this fall with plenty of inclement weather, unlike some other game. Nevertheless, its first add-on centers around even more torrential downpours on the paradisiacal sounding Storm Island. Storm I...

Link: Open letter to Microsoft, Turn 10, Playground Games on DLC

Nice work, Cheapy D
Oct 07
Forza Horizon 2? Pretty damned good, right? Having to buy a car pack to get the most desired DLC car? Not so good. I have strong feelings of my own on that and other DLC topics surrounding the Forza franchise, but I can save ...

Review: Forza Horizon 2

Good racing, mate
Sep 25
The original Forza Horizon impressed us back in 2012 with its ability to incorporate what we already loved about Forza Motorsport into an absolutely massive open-world sandbox racing game, while not completely ditching its si...

Forza Horizon 2 demo coming to Xbox One on September 16

Achievements announced
Aug 27
A demo for Playground Games' Forza Horizon 2 is coming to Xbox One on September 16, just ahead of the September 30 release date. They promise a "brief taste" of what to expect in the full version.  You'll find an Achievements list for Forza Horizon 2 below. Some of the names are super silly.

This Forza Horizon 2 trailer uses the word 'social' too much

Social, connected, social, connected
Aug 12
Okay, maybe the snarky headline was a bit mean but the devs behind Forza Horizon 2 are really making sure that you know that the game is social and connected. Aside from those buzzwords, what does that actually mean in terms...

The new Forza Horizon 2 cars are mostly vehicles you'll never drive in real life

I bet you could swing a 1977 Ford Escort, though
Aug 05
The new batch of cars revealed for Forza Horizon 2 brings about a bit of a staunch reminder that open-world racing games aren't all that realistic. Let's face it -- there's a slim chance you'll ever be behind the wheel o...

There's a Hummer H1 in Forza Horizon 2, and these 99 other cars

Over 200 in total, here's the first half
Jul 22
I hate Hummers so much. Only in America would a car that stupid get that popular. Of course, Forza Horizon 2 has the H1, the actual Humvee-looking one that isn't any less stupid for civilian driving, but at least it doesn't look like a gangly, overgrown Power Wheels like the popular H2 you still see out and about sometimes. The first 100 cars are listed here.

Forza Horizon 2 will have a digital personal assistant named ANNA

Jul 03
Forza Horizon 2 is coming to the Xbox One and Xbox 360 later this year, and more details are starting to arise with every passing week. The latest development is "ANNA," the "digital personal assistant" of Forza Horizon 2, w...

Forza Forza!
Jun 17
Forza Horizon 2 creative director Ralph Fulton told Digital Spy that it would eschew the series' microtransaction currency, tokens. "The approach we've taken is that we've designed our game at Playground Games from ...

Video: Bust up some guy's vineyard in Forza Horizon 2

E3 2014 impressions from Mike Cosimano
Jun 13
In Forza Horizon 2, you're headed to Southern Europe. We sent one of our video guys, the energetic Mike Cosimano, to check it out at E3. He really, really dug the last Horizon and it sounds like the sequel is more of the same on a grander scale, for better or worse. That includes Drivatars. They're back, with a vengeance.

Driveclub vs. Forza Horizon 2 at E3 2014

Next-gen street racers compared
Jun 12
The Xbox and PlayStation booths are directly next to each other in the West Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center for E3 2014 this year, which made it really convenient to compare two upcoming racing games. I put the dela...

Why the heck is Forza Horizon 2 trying to get me killed?

Cutting through cornfields, racing against oncoming traffic, and more
Jun 10
Driving is dangerous. We take it for granted, but you're more likely to die driving to the airport than zipping through the air a mile high in a heavy, metal tube. I am pretty okay at driving, but I am notably not great at dr...

Forza Horizon 2 hits Xbox One on September 30

Playground returns for another open-world racer
Jun 09
Playground Games announced a September 30, 2014 release date for Forza Horizon 2 during Microsoft's E3 2014 media briefing this morning. The Xbox One version was mentioned specifically during the event, but the game is also ...

Forza Horizon 2 will display at 1080p, running at 30 frames per second

The difference between a game with set tracks, and an open world
Jun 06
So it seems Forza Horizon 2, unlike Forza 5, will not be running at 60 frames per second. While it will still display in 1080p, the open-world nature of Horizon doesn't seems to play nice with the idea of a locked 60fps rate,...

Forza Horizon 2 coming this fall for Xbox One and Xbox 360

Drivatar comes over
Jun 02
The follow-up to 2012's Forza Horizon is coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360 this fall. IGN has the scoop on Microsoft's announcement of open-world racer Forza Horizon 2. They say it's being handled primarily by the group that di...
