Fallout 4 and Forza Motorsport 6 are teaming up to bring players two cars inspired by the upcoming, post-apocalyptic video game. They're starting with a rusted 1956 Ford F100, but the next one is much more fanciful.
The latest entry in the Need for Speed franchise is just says away from release, and the official trailer shows some of the exciting, driving action. Not only is the game packed with the usual assortment of high-performance cars, but Ken Block is one of real-life stars with his Mustang Hoonicorn.
The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata will be offered as part of a free, four-vehicle car pack on March 17. Gamers will also have a chance to win an MX-5 in a new Rivals contest. What's more, we learn that the production MX-5 will supposedly weigh just 2,332 pounds in US-spec form.
The G-Shock car pack is ready for Forza Horizon 2, bringing with it a collection of six very eclectic models that run the gamut from concepts like the 2015 Nissan IDX Nismo to classics like the 1953 Ferrari 500 Mondial. The car pack even gets very quirky with the 1980 Subaru Brat GL. There's at least one car here to grab the interest of any fan of the game.
Beautiful, Vast And With Loads Of Unfulfilled Potential
Lofty promises and lovely trailers have become Ubisoft's modus operandi of late. Gaming enthusiasts as a whole have seen it in the company's other, non-auto-related franchises, while we've observed this tendency in the lead up to Ubi's latest title, The Crew.
We've spilled a lot of virtual ink in our coverage of Grand Theft Auto V. Rockstar Games' 2013 blockbuster was arguably one of that year's very best titles, delivering a unique version of automotive mayhem, along with all the other things – guns, sex, drugs, murder, thievery and biting satire – that the series has been praised and criticized for.
One of my early triumphs while playing the sparkling new Forza Horizon 2 for Xbox One came after what I could conservatively call a "non-traditional" motorsports experience. In a point-to-point street race across a lovingly rendered, sun-dappled corner of Europe, I transitioned from a winding two-lane road to a narrow dirt , with one extended foray – at well over 120 miles per hour – through a vineyard. I did all of this in a Ferrari 360 Modena Challenge Stradale.
