In addition to the new Hot Wheels expansion, on May 9 we will be releasing an update for Forza Horizon 3 which includes some significant improvements for Windows 10 players. These changes include improved new support for numerous popular driving wheels, improved CPU performance, additional graphical options, and more. Look for the full list of all the improvements coming with the latest update on the day of release.

Please be actual significant performance increases, like using all cores instead of just one. That would make my day. This bit is potentially more exciting than anything else.

This looks amazing! However much this DLC is, I'm buying it.

God damn, Forza Horizon 3 might just be my favourite game of the generation so far. It's that good.

That's really fucking cool.

I love Playground and I don't even own a Bone any more.

This is making my Scorpio purchase for lounge gaming even more likely.

When they say standalone do they mean it's available outside the season pass or like yandalone as in you don't need the base game?

Cause when I saw that I immediately thought it should be seperate like Fast & Furious was.

Lol, I don't think anyone expected this.

This will be divisive as hell to forza people, but it could also be pretty fun. Some trackmania style multiplayer would be great. See some figure 8 racing too.

Yeah...the City area was fine for me for a long while after launch then a patch hit and I drop frames there badly...seeing as the trailer was set in that area it has me worried.

Can't say I am as enthusiastic as most here for it but hopefully it's fun and not just a bunch of races on orange ramps.

This is the last one of the two.
oh i see so that means its content complete or some smaller dlcs are yet to come like cars and stuff?
... as for the DLC itself it looks the right kind of dumb ... although i would rather see fixed PC version on proper PC platform/store

Track creator?, wonder how deep the modification of track sections system is.

The fact that it says 'swap' sounds to me like it's "Replace this obstacle with an obstacle of your choice", rather than an in-depth creator. I'm interested to find out, though!

Just means you can buy it outside of the expansion pass.

Will they have a "slap your brother with track pieces" mode?

Or a "your mom used part of a track to spank your older brother, and when the welt showed up on his legs she felt so bad she threw 'em away" mode.

I had no idea I wanted a Hot Wheels video game, but holy shit, I want a Hot Wheels video game. My three year old is going to go nuts over this. She's fascinated with my old HW sets.

We have some significant improvements for Windows 10 players coming at the same time as this new expansion (May 9). These changes include improved new support for numerous popular driving wheels, improved CPU performance, additional graphical options, and more.

We'll be revealing more details about these at the time of release.
