Forza Horizon 4's first expansion goes off-shore

Fortune Island is out in December.

Playground Games has announced that the first of Forza Horizon 4's two expansions is called Fortune Island and will be released on 13th December.

As you might gather from the title, Fortune Island will add a new off-shore area to Forza Horizon 4's map. The fictional island resides in "the remote northern reaches of the British Isles" - Shetland, then - and, like other Forza Horizon expansions before it, will focus on extreme weather conditions and demanding driving: "fierce lightning storms, perilous cliffside dirt roads, and sweeping paved mountain switchbacks under the mystical glow of the aurora borealis", it says here. Maybe not Shetland.

The press release also mentions a search for "hidden treasure": new Barn Find cars, perhaps?

Fortune Island is available as part of a two-expansion bundle for around Ł30, or is free to owners of the Ultimate Edition or the Ultimate Add-ons Bundle.

During its X018 livestream, Microsoft also mentioned that all five custom Hoonigan Fords from the 10th instalment of Ken Block's Gymkhana video series will be released in the game: two have already dropped for Car Pass owners, and three more will be added for all players through November and December.
