It looks like Forza Horizon 3's first big expansion is heading to New Zealand

They're taking the Honda to Isengard!

Forza Horizon 3 - which, in case you didn't know already, is a damn fine game - just had its first big expansion teased, and it looks like it'll be taking the game away from the Australian mainland.

At least that's what the image of a snow-frosted Lamborghini suggests. I've never been to Australia, but I had a penpal from over there when I was 10 years old who'd ask me what snow looked like as he'd never seen it before. In return I asked him if he knew Alan Jones. We didn't stay in touch for long.

So, where could it be headed? New Zealand's an obvious bet, and having seen all of The Lord of The Rings films I'm fairly certain there is both snow and dragons and hobbits in the land of the Kiwi, all of which would be perfect fits for Playground Studios' open-world driving game. Forza: Middle Earth - who wouldn't want to play that?

Of course there's a perfectly good chance it'll be set somewhere else where it snows in which case we'll all look quite stupid here, but this whole thing at least enabled that strap so you can't blame us.
