Forza Horizon Season Pass Detailed

By Michelle Balsan, 4 years ago
Season Passes are all the rage these days, so it's really no surprise to learn that Playground Games' Forza Horizon will have such a thing available. Like all Season Passes, the “Forza Horizon Season Pass" will give you access to a collection of downloadable, post-release content for the game for a savings over what you would pay if you bought each item individually. The "Forza Horizon Season Pass" is set to give you "automatic access to the Forza Horizon Expansion Pack (available Dec. 18, 2012), along with six game car packs". Each car pack will include six new vehicles. In addition to all that, Season Pass holders will get access to "five exclusive season pass vehicles and the launch day pack".

The Season Pass will be available on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace on October 26th for 4000 MSP. Playground reports that this will represent a "17 percent overall savings" against purchasing the content separately.

In other news, the developer has been busy churning out developer diaries to support the upcoming open-world racer. The first developer diary covered several gameplay features, while the second detailed how the dev team brought Colorado to life in the title. This latest installment features a chat with BBC Radio One DJ, Rob da Bank, who was behind the selection of the tunes featured in Forza Horizon.

The game will include three radio stations from which you can choose to set your tuner. Each has a distinct collection of tracks based on the type of music they're set to play. Here are some details on the available stations:

·Station 1 / “Horizon Bass Arena” – “A bleeding-edge mix of the latest electronic and dance music, from dubstep to electro to drum & bass. If it’s got bass, you’ll find it here.”
·Station 2 / “Horizon Pulse” – “An eclectic selection of indie festival favourites, remixed to keep you driving”
·Station 3 / “Horizon Rocks” – “If it’s got guitars in it, it’s here. Whether these bands are hitting the festival scene for the first time in 2012 or are legends reforming for one last gig, you’ll find a diverse selection of music on this station, all turned up to eleven.
