Now that Forza Motorsport 4 developer Turn 10 Studios and Need for Speed developer Electronic Arts finally "found the right terms," you can have Porsche in your Forza. The Porsche Expansion Pack will be available for 1,600 MS points or $19.99, and will reward you with 30 products from the Stuttgart maker including the 2010 911 Sport Classic. Turn 10 says that seven of the 30 will be completely new to the series, which probably means you can expect the return of classics from Forza 3 like the 962.

The pack isn't included in the game's Season Pass, but your Porsche Expansion Pack won't just get cars, either: there will be 20 new events, 10 XBox Live achievements and a Rivals Mode all based on Porsches as well. The pack is scheduled to be available on May 22 and will take FM4's car count (with DLCs) to 625. The licensing deal isn't long-term, so if Porsches are your thing you should mark May 22 on your calendar.

The other two new events on the Forza 4 horizon are that level caps have been raised from 150 to 999, and a new game called Forza Horizon is on the way. It's being developed by an outside studio called Playground Games and no one seems to know anything about it beyond Turn 10's assessment that "it's a fast-paced pick-up-and-play racing game." There's a video trailer for Horizon after the jump that won't tell you anything more than you already know, but sounds pretty cool.

      $20?...can I send the bill to E.A.? :B

      Seeing as how over half of those vehicles were available from day one (for free) in Forza 3, this price tag is ridiculous. This should be $10 at absolute MOST. I can't believe they are asking us to pay for what should have been in the game from day 1. We shouldn't have to pay because EA is a greedy disgusting company.

        Agreed. $10 sounds about right for this, and I'd have absolutely no problem forking that over in MS points for the Porsche pack. But $20? C'mon... There are entire GAMES that can be bought for $20.

      As much as I'd love to have this, I can't pull myself to fork out another $20. I purchased the Limited Edition AND season pass on day one and I can't quite remember the total, but it was north of $80.

        If you got the LCE and the Season Pass, you paid well over $80. The LCE was $80 alone.

      nice to hear about the porsche dlc. But Turn 10 should add a track pack, Im getting tired of the same ol tracks and they should use some of those millions of $ that they make off their DLC packs to develop an affordable official Forza motorsport forcefeedback wheel with pedals and manuel gear for max. 150 dollars and an optional simple rig with seat for max 200 dollars, cause playing with a controller is not engaging enough and the Fanetic wheels and rigs are expensive its an insult. Looking forward to Forza Horizon.

        I don't think you understand the amount of tech, let alone R&D that goes into making a wheel. A $150 FFB wheel would fall apart so quickly it wouldn't even be worth it. Racing seats, however, are completely unnecessary. The Fanatec wheels are amazing, I own the CSR, and I have not once regretted the $420 I spent on it. You gotta pay to play :P

          Hey G viktor marshall, thx for your reply. I have been thinking of getting the csr wheel, but its 360 euro for the combo pack which is the wheel and pedals, i just think its a lot of money. And i think Turn 10 should try and see if they cant make a more affordeble wheel with manuel gear and pedals so that more people could get closer to the action, a big game like Forza motorsport should have an official force feedback wheel.

      I knew it'd just be a matter of time before we finally got our Porsches in FM4. However, I truely did not expect the $20 price tag for said cars. That's 1/3 the cost of the entire game when it was new (or 1/4, with the Collector's Edition), which makes it even harder to swallow now that the cost of the game has dropped. I'm happy, yet disappointed at the same time. Not sure what to think of it.

      awesome...the only game i'd buy a 360 for but i'll rather wait for the CARS project, rFactor 2 and GTR3

      Here's to hoping that Turn 10 keeps it light on the special edition Boxters and gives us some quality cars like the 917K & 935 K3. Oh and a 908/3 if they're not too busy.

      Don't get me wrong, I love me some Porsche and think any racing game that doesn't have them is missing something....but a 3rd of the cost of the original full game for a pack of 7 cars? Stuff like this makes me wish the internet was never invented so game makers would be forced to release full/complete games or face the consequences of a competitor one upping them..

        I probably cost that much since they most likely are paying a hefty fee to EA who owns the rights to use Porsches in their games. Otherwise Forza and Gran Turismo would of had Porsche in their games on release day.

        Also it is 30 cars, not 7

      Hope this means we'll see Porsche is Gran Turismo 5 someday too.

        Joke is a little old don't you think? How about the: 962C 944 914 959 911 GT1 RS Spyder Evo 550 Spyder 82' 911 Turbo 3.3 '73 911 Carrera RS Carrera GT Cayenne Panamera and more that are most likely going to be coming back from Forza 3, all of which look nothing alike....

      Damn! Thats pretty sweet... Sad that i didnt find forza's physics engine to be any good. This should be Polyphony Digital's chance to bring Porche to GT5! C'mon Kaz!

        "Sad that i didnt find forza's physics engine to be any good." So you're telling us you haven't even played the game...

      Hell yeah!!!! I can't wait. The only BS is how much money we are having to put out after the game is already out. For the money, I don't wan't just cars, I wan't other upgrades to be included. For instance, new wheels, better offsets, etc.
