The guys at Turn 10 Studios have more DLC served up for Forza Horizon. On January 15, 2013, we'll get the Honda Challenge Car Pack that puts the 2013 Honda Civic Coupe, an HPD Rally Fit and a 1986 Honda Civic Si Coupe in our garage. Part of Honda's effort to return the Civic to its former place in everyone's hearts, we presume.

The Challenge part of the equation will be the online race against Scott Dixon, wherein you try to beat the IndyCar driver's time around a track in a 2013 Civic Si for the chance to meet the racer in person. What's more, Horizon players will get to choose the track – look for the Honda section in Xbox Live and place your vote by January 8 for the showdown venue. There's also a photo contest that starts on January 15, the same day that the absolutely free challenge pack will be available. The winner of that contest will get custom-wrapped Civic Si Xbox 360 console.

While you wait for that, available as of yesterday is the rally expansion pack. It adds five rally cars, new multiplayer events, co-drivers making announcements and a seven-race series in Colorado with 20 stages that culminates in someone being declared rally champion. If you want in, it's free if you bought the $50 Season Pass – and you'll also get a 2003 Ford Focus SVT as a special bonus – or it'll be 1,600 MS Points if you aren't a member of the Season Pass club. We're working on a review of the significant expansion, too, so stay tuned.

The video below takes you on a romp through the rally pack, with ample demonstration of all the crashes you can't wait to have.

        Gosh I hope so. Dirt 3 is a waste of good money. You can't "beat" the game without buying more tracks. Sorry, you can't win this championship because you didn't purchase a whole game - you just bought disc 1. Disc 2 is the entire internet. WTF

      Does anyone know if they fixed/improved the dirt physics? The dirt physics in the released game is pretty awful -- getting the car to go around a corner in the game would cause you to plow in a straight line in the real world... (the physics are pretty much the exact opposite of what would happen in the real world).

      they screwed over their massive Forza fanbase by literally abandoning Forza4 as soon as this game came out. There are thousands of us who play online every day, and no further help from the Forza team in tracks, cars, or bug fixes. They need to abandon this stupid game and put their development back into what made them what they are today. If not, they will be very sorry they didnt come next console time.

      The amount of air the cars were catching, and the amount of speed they appeared to be catching is a little out of this world, but maybe that's the point of this game. Either way, it looks like a lot of fun. Wish I had enough free time to go buy video games, let alone play them. :/

      Not sure if I didn't give this game it's fair shake, but I can't seem to get into it. I bought it in late October and I've played it for a grand total of a few hours, mostly the first day or two. It just feels like a watering-down of the Forza name.

        Don't look at it as a Forza game (it's mainly developed by Playground Games, not Turn10), look at it as PGR5 + open world + Forza elements.

        I downloaded the demo and played it a few times but like you I just couldn't get into it. Felt too arcadey so I didn't purchase the game.
