Parpy Christmas: Forza Horizon 3's icy expansion out

The true meaning of driving

Discover the true meaning of Christmas in the heartwarming first Forza Horizon 3 [official site] expansion. Blizzard Mountain, released yesterday, tells the tale of a group of cars jostling for love and attention from Santy Claus, racing across ice and snow to prove they're better than any reindeer. Racing through new icy lands, a lineup of new trucks and cars will come to realise that Santa loves them all and that they should stop competing. The final race ends with the cars round a fire glugging marshmallow-laden cocoa into their radiators. Perfect. I'm welling up just thinking about it.

Microsoft's official marketing downplays the festive side, mind, instead reeling off practical feature lists like:

"Conquer snow, ice, extreme elevations, and blizzards in your new campaign to become King of the Mountain. The Blizzard Mountain expansion adds eight new cars and trucks to the game including the 2016 Ford Focus RS RX GYMKHANA 9 Edition and a brand-new barn find car, as well as snow tire upgrades and thrilling new race modes like Hill Climb, Descent, and Blizzard Races, additional Bucket List Blueprints, Rivals events, Xbox Live Achievements, and much more!"

Blizzard Mountain costs £16.74 on its lonesome or comes in the Expansion Pass for £29.24 with a second, yet-unrevealed expansion. Yep, it's still only on Windows 10 through the Windows Store.

Oh, in case you missed the news, Forza Horizon 3 does now have a Windows demo.

Anyway, merry Christmas, everycar:
