Whether you’ve fully completed Forza Horizon 2 or not, you’ll be glad to know that the Storm Island DLC is now available to buy.
Storm Island brings a whole new area to Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox One. Costing £15.99, Horizon 2 VIP owners will receive a 50% discount on the price. Included in the pack are new locations with some of the most severe, fog ridden, wind swept weather conditions ever seen, with 90 new events spread over the following five event types..
Rampage: Rampage events are point-to-point off-road sprints, where the driver will contend with obstacles and smashables (including the brand new smashable chicanes) before crossing the finish line.
Brawl: Grab your favourite four-wheeled weapon and strap in for these off-road circuit races featuring extreme terrain, lots of obstacles to take advantage of, and new smashables to wreck.
Extreme Cross Country: Fans have played Cross Country events in Forza Horizon 2 but have never played them quite like this. With more extreme elevation changes, a variety of different terrain types, and strong storms to contend with, Storm Island’s Extreme Cross Country races are not for the faint of heart.
Cross Country Circuit: One sprint in a Cross Country race will get players’ heart rates up. But how about multiple laps? In Cross Country Circuit events, players will be taking on those same challenges in multi-lap races that will test both their stamina and skill.
Gauntlet: These point-to-point races are held only at night, and are long and dangerous – with minimal signage to guide players during the race. Just completing a Gauntlet event is challenging enough. Victory will take a special combination of skill, bravery, and luck.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Forza if there weren’t also some new Car Meets, Bucket Lists, speed traps and Rivals events.
Additionally, Storm Island comes complete with the following five cars and some new off-road suspension, tirre and transmission upgrades that can be applied to any car in the Forza garage:
- 2013 Robby Gordon #7 Speed Energy Drink Stadium Super Truck
- 2013 MINI X-Raid All4 Racing Countryman
- 2014 Ford Ranger T6 Rally Raid
- 1981 Ford Fiesta XR2
- 1992 Mitsubishi Galant VR-4
…and there are even 23 new achievements that bring an extra 500 gamerscore for you to get to grips with.
Either download the new content via the game or through the Xbox One Games Store. It’s sure to keep you busy on those cold winter nights.
