A New Way to Play: LEGO Comes to Forza Horizon 4
In case you don’t follow news from the world of video games, the annual E3 Show is currently underway in Los Angeles, and while this year’s event hasn’t been nearly as heavy on racing game news as past years, there was an interesting reveal from the Forza team over the weekend. No, it wasn’t the announcement of the next entry in the franchise—in fact, Turn 10 Studios confirmed there won't be a new Forza title coming out this year. However, we did get a look at the next expansion for Forza Horizon 4, and it looks interesting to say the least.
While the last edition of Forza Horizon featured a Hot Wheels-themed expansion that was surprisingly fun, this time Forza has teamed up with another iconic toy maker for the LEGO Speed Champions expansion, which will launch on June 13.
Building on the ever-expanding Speed Champions line of LEGO kits, the expansion promises an entire LEGO-themed world to explore and a wide variety of LEGO vehicles to drive. You can expect it to be heavy on stunts and the light-hearted fun that LEGO games and movies are known for.
Among the LEGO machines featured in the expansion are the Ferrari F40 Competizione, the ‘64 Mini Cooper S and of course the original Horizon 4 cover car, the McLaren Senna. On its own the expansion will cost $19.99, but it’s already included if you bought the Ultimate Edition of the game or the Expansions Bundle.
While the LEGO Speed Champions expansion might not appeal to those who want their Forza experience to be as lifelike as possible, it could potentially open the game to a whole new audience and be a new favorite if you happen to have young ones in the house. We’ll certainly be interested to try it out for ourselves when it drops later this week.
