Forza Horizon given Xbox backwards compatibility ahead of Games with Gold release

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse added too.

Forza Horizon and Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse have both been added to the Xbox One's backwards compatibility library.

This is especially notable for Forza Horizon as it's coming to Games With Gold as a free offering from 1-15th September.

Turn 10's 2012 racing game was highly praised by Eurogamer editor and motorsport aficionado Oli Welsh who called it "a big, exciting game that finally brings car enthusiasts together with the realistic open roads they crave."

"Forza Horizon is built on the best parts of the Motorsport games but delivers a strikingly different experience to them, and in many ways a better one," he stated in his glowing Forza Horizon review.
