Forza Horizon 2 is getting a DLC pack that will include some of the cars featured in the new “Furious 7” movie. The pack is available today Apr. 7, and will include the following eight vehicles: 1970 Dodge Charger R/T “Fast & Furious” Edition, 1970 Plymouth Cuda “Fast & Furious” Edition, 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited “Fast & Furious” Edition, 2014 Maserati Ghibli S “Fast & Furious” Edition, 1970 Plymouth Road Runner “Fast & Furious” Edition, 2015 Dodge Charger R/T “Fast & Furious” Edition, 2015 Dodge Challenger “Fast & Furious” Edition, 1998 Toyota Supra “Fast & Furious” Edition.
Obvious marketing is obvious, but at least this one makes some sense, and is actually kind of cool. I’m surprised it has taken this long for Fast and Furious to appear in one of the major car simulations. Fast and Furious movies have always been popular, but the latest entry in the long running car racing/heist series of films is off the charts successful (at least commercially and believe it or not, kind of critically too). There’s no ignoring it now.

Make way for the “Furious 7” Car Pack on Forza Horizon 2 for Xbox One! Featuring a lineup of awesome cars appearing in Universal Pictures’ latest action film, “Furious 7,” the “Furious 7” Car Pack is worthy of its own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The “Furious 7” Car Pack will be available on April 7 for $5, and will feature eight amazing cars to collect, drive, and race in Forza Horizon 2 – that’s two additional cars over the standard monthly Forza Horizon 2 car pack.
Living life a quarter mile at a time starts with the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, but the rest of the cars in the “Furious 7” Car Pack more than hold their own. From the menacing luxury of the 2014 Maserati Ghibli S to the armored beast that is the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, these cars have to be seen, heard, and driven to be believed. All of the cars in the pack have been authentically recreated, including details never before seen in a Forza game – like the awesome functioning blower in the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T. And let’s not forget this month’s free car – the 1998 Toyota Supra, which is available to all Forza Horizon 2 players at no additional cost. Watch them grind in theaters beginning on April 3 and then drive them yourself in Forza Horizon 2.
