Forza Horizon 3’s Hot Wheels expansion now has an equally silly successor. Horizon 4’s second expansion is all about Lego, and like Hot Wheels, it doesn’t take itself all that seriously.
It introduces a Lego-themed world chock full of Lego brick buildings, a race track called Falcon Speedway, and the ‘Super Mega Awesome Adventure Stunt Park’. See what we mean about it not taking itself seriously?
There’s also an airport, a pirate cove and, erm, a UFO crash site. You’ll be able to explore this new world in a variety of Lego Speed Champions cars, including a McLaren Senna, Ferrari F40 Competizione, and a 1967 Mini Cooper S rally car.
To make sure you aren’t switching back to FH4’s standard UK-based setting - or heading to its first ‘Fortune Island’ expansion - after half an hour, there’ll be various ‘Lego Brick Challenges’ to keep you interested. Exploration of the Lego world brings forth rewards, eventually allowing you to build a ‘Master Builder’s House’. There’ll be ‘Lego Speed Ramps’ and ‘Destruction challenges’ to tackle too.
Judging by the gameplay footage doing the rounds, there’ll be plenty of things to smash up. What not clear, however, is what happens when you crash a Speed Champions car. A childhood firing Lego models at skirting boards should tell you the correct result would be the vehicles exploding into pieces, but if that’s what happens here, it’d surely be showcased in the trailer.
We won’t have long to wait before finding out, however - the expansion is out on 13 June. If you own Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate Edition, the Expansions Bundle or Ultimate Add-Ons Bundle it won’t cost you anything, otherwise, it’s $19.99.
If you want a preview of the game before then, it’ll be showcased via the Forza Monthly livestream at 01:00 BST on 11 June (17:00 PST 10 June).
