Welcome to the Blizzard Mountain DLC review.

This is the first major expansion for the award winning Forza Horizon 3 and it is quite simply tremendous. Following the marker at the airstrip in the main game for the expansion, you get to travel there attached to a beastly chinook and flown in style to the Mountain. Air dropped in at the peak you immediately see how stunning this snow world is as you race to the festival hub. Massive jumps of cliffs, drifting in snow, sliding on ice - this expansion is a whole lot of fun.

The sizeable campaign has introduced challenges for each exhibition race to earn stars to achieve the King of the Mountain status. These star challenges are refreshing to the Horizon gameplay as you are encouraged to perform skills while winning the race to earn 3 stars. These challenges are mostly easy for a Horizon veteran with some offering a good level of difficulty which makes each race even more enjoyable. The challenges are a certainly welcome dynamic and should be included in future instalments of the Horizon games. The course layouts are superbly designed with hill climbs and descent events included with the usual circuits and point to point events. Additionally the introduction of black ice makes for very interesting races where there is zero grip and you helplessly careen into other vehicles or off piste down the mountain. The ice patches are cleverly placed on apexes and other parts of the course to challenge you as a driver but not overused and are a superb addition to the course design. Included are some additional PR stunts – danger zones (jumps), speed traps and speed zones and a few bucket lists. You earn stars on these to progress to becoming King of the Mountain. It’s here where you get the best car in the expansion -

Trust me, you want to get your hands on this.

I must talk about the dynamic weather which is outstanding. Forza and snow – we have been waiting a long time for this and it does not disappoint. The higher the altitude the more frequent the blizzards are and is just like driving through a blizzard in real life. You can hardly see anything in the white out and the day / night cycle makes it even better. No doubt you will be crashing of cliffs and skidding on ice and you will love it. Night time blizzard conditions make racing exhilarating as you rally down the slopes heavily relying on your map in the corner. There are even snowmen dotted about to smash into, although some poor kid will be sobbing seeing an extreme off-road truck sledgehammer into their prized icy creation.

A few vehicles are included in the expansion along with a barn find, however you can use all your cars from the main game. I recommend using vehicles with off-road tyres (which are automatically switched to snow tyres) as you’ll find it very hard without them. You can drive your Koenigsegg if you wish, but you’ll probably want to stick with the snow vehicles. There are even rally classics from days of yore such as the Lancia Delta S4 Group B and the Lancia Stratos HF Group 4 – cars sadly too dangerously awesome.

The only thing to bemoan is the lack of additional in game music as after many hours of the main game some new songs / stations would’ve been refreshing. However the SFX from the cars and the snow are the usual excellence we come to expect from a Forza game. Blizzard Mountain will keep you playing for hours with a snow load of content and an epic mountain to explore and race on. Completion time is around 15-20 hours although you’ll find yourself spending a whole lot more.

The expansion costs £16.74 or you can purchase the expansion pass for £29.24 (which includes the next major unannounced expansion). Ultimate Edition owners get a £10 discount on the expansion pass if purchased by the end of 2016.

This is by far the best Forza expansion to date with its breathtaking visuals and snow driving. This mountain of an expansion proudly stands high and well worth the money. Let’s hope the upcoming second expansion is good enough to bring us down from Blizzard Mountain.
