New video documentary welcomes racing fans to the open roads of Colorado
Microsoft, Playground Games, and Turn 10 Studios have released a new edition of the "Forza Horizon –Behind the Scenes" video documentary series. In this latest edition of the video series fans have a chance to explore the open world playground of Colorado, which is the backdrop for all of the automotive action in Forza Horizon.
Forza Horizon's creators spent months creating the incredible version of Colorado that fans will be able to race, drive, and explore in Forza Horizon. In this video, fans will be able to get an inside look at how the team took the hundreds of hours of video footage and the tens of thousands of photographs gathered during multiple reference trips to Colorado, and translate them into the massive, fun-filled world that makes up Forza Horizon. From the treacherous sun-baked cliffs of Red Rock to the pulsing non-stop party that is the Horizon Festival itself, Forza Horizon's Colorado is an automotive playground brimming with intense action and surprises around every turn.
The multi-part "Forza Horizon: Behind the Scenes" video documentary series opens the door to the creation of this year's biggest racing game, Forza Horizon.
Forza Horizon Season Pass Details Released: The "Forza Horizon" Season Pass is your action-packed ticket to automatic access to the "Forza Horizon" Expansion Pack (available Dec. 18, 2012), along with six game car packs, as they're released through the next year. Each car pack will include six new vehicles and those who purchase the Season Pass will also get access to five exclusive season pass vehicles and the launch day pack.
The "Forza Horizon" Season Pass will be available for purchase starting Oct. 23, on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for only 4,000 Microsoft points ($49.99 USD), representing a 17 percent overall savings as compared to purchasing the content separately.
