"The Fast and the Furious" themed Forza Horizon standalone available now, FREE for a limit

The Fast and the Furious is an interesting series of films, far more successful than they should be on paper. It's a tale of bromance, chromeance, good guys and bad guys.

To coincide with the cinema release of the seventh movie in the series, Furious 7, Microsoft have released a standalone Forza Horizon 2 expansion - it doesn't require the original game to run. What's more, for the initial two weeks of release it will be free: Free to buy; Free to own and Free to Keep as long as you buy it during the promotion period.

After 10. April, it will cost €9.99.

In the succinctly titled Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious, you are recruited by Fast & Furious expert mechanic Tej Parker, voiced by Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, to source cars for the Fast & Furious crew’s next big mission. You’ll take part in a series of thrilling car challenges set in the idyllic south of France, and inspired by both the “Fast & Furious” movies and Forza’s awesome, pulse-pounding gameplay. As you complete game challenges, you’ll unlock new cars that you can drive throughout the open world in free roam play.

“Forza is synonymous with racing and fun, so it’s only natural for us to work with one of the most celebrated action franchises in the world,” said Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox. “This is a great way to bring Forza players into the world of ‘Fast & Furious,’ and in Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious, every fan will get a chance to go wheels-first into the exciting action of the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise.”

The standalone game is available for both Xbox One and the venerable Xbox 360. Go on, take it for a spin and kick the tyres - for free, you've nothing to lose.
