On Tuesday, April 16 (that’s tomorrow!) we are turning up the volume of the loudest car party in the world yet again with the release of the 1000 Club Expansion for Forza Horizon! This expansion brings more action, more fun, more achievements, and, yes, even more cars to Horizon Festival… and it can be yours for the low, low price of NOTHING. NADA. ZILCH.

 

Watch the trailer for the 1000 Club Expansion for Forza Horizon!

 

Since the release of Forza Horizon in October, and the subsequent monthly DLC car packs that have followed, we’ve heard a familiar theme from the Forza community: Give us more to do! The 1000 Club Expansion does exactly that; offering you five brand new challenges for every car in the game. That’s more than 1,000 challenges across the hundreds of cars in the game.

 

With the 1000 Club Expansion, each car in Forza Horizon will have a number of new challenges associated with it. Once you select a car, you’ll see each of the challenges you can complete while driving it. These challenges come from practically all facets of Forza Horizon’s gameplay – from skills challenges like drifting or jumping, to plain and simple speed zone challenges and all points in between. There are location-based challenges, like drifting around the winding roads of Red Rocks, or new twists on familiar Horizon Festival events.

 

Once you’ve chosen a car, you’ll get tips on how to accomplish these tasks (for example, in a challenge where the goal is to smash a number of objects, the game will suggest a nearby location that includes lots of smashables). After that, you’re let loose on the open roads, free to compete any of that car’s challenges in any order you see fit. In fact, finding the quickest route towards completing each car’s challenges is part of the strategy and fun behind the 1000 Club Expansion.

 

Variety is at the heart of the Forza Horizon 1000 Club Expansion Pack. All of the challenges have been custom designed to fit the unique personality and strengths of each car in the game and, as you play through the challenges, the game will recommend new challenges for you to try.

 

In addition the expansion pack will also include 10 new Xbox Live achievements to collect, worth 250 gamerscore points, as well as two new cars to enjoy:

 

 

1995 RUF CTR2

In the late 1980s, Ruf made its auspicious debut in the world of high-performance cars with the original RUF CTR. Nearly a decade later, founder Alois Ruf succeeded in one-upping himself with the CTR2. Like a good Hollywood action sequel, the CTR2 featured more of what fans loved about the original – namely incredible performance, thanks to a 3.6 liter, twin turbocharged flat-six capable of 520 horsepower and a top speed north of 215 mph. As intended, this kind of performance immediately catapulted the CTR2 into the rarefied air of the world’s most elite vehicles, in demand by collectors and speed junkies alike.

 

 

1956 Ford F100

Ford’s F100 truck series was a hit in 1953 but didn’t really hit its stride until the 1956 model – the best-looking and most powerful version of Ford’s classic workhorse. Maybe it was the new grille. Or that wraparound windscreen. Fans of the blue oval had the optional V8, too, which boosted the F100 to a respectable 167 horsepower, plenty of power for a hard-working vehicle. The F100 went through additional revisions but, for Ford truck connoisseurs, the 1956 model remains a high point.
