Forza Horizon 4 is easily one of the biggest racing games of the last decade. Its open world featuring changing seasons, incredibly long list of cars, music, online community, and its multitude of customization possibilities made Horizon 4 appeal to a wide swath of people, not just gearheads.
Forza Horizon 4 is coming to Steam
Another contributor to Forza Horzion 4‘s large player base is the fact that it is available on multiple platforms. Players can jump into Horizon 4 on any Xbox One console, the new Xbox Series S and X consoles, and they can even play it on their smartphones with the Xbox Live Game Pass Ultimate membership service.
Forza Horizon 4 is playable on Windows PC as well but up until this point the PC version of Horizon 4 was only sold through the Microsoft Store online marketplace.
While that is a large marketplace that most people with PCs have access to, there is no doubt that the largest PC game marketplace online is Steam.
Because Steam has been around so long and and many PC gamers are used to it, many of them will avoid a game all together if it is not available on Steam rather than make an account on another platform.
To make things more convenient, it was announced today that Forza Horizon 4 will be available on Steam starting March 9th 2021. Considering that as of 2020 Steam had 120 million active users, this move has the potential to boost Forza Horizon 4’s community significantly.
While March 9th is still a month away, Steam users can add Forza Horizon 4 to their wish list right now so that they can be notified as soon as the game goes live on the store.
Hot Wheels Legends Tour Car Pack DLC
In addition to announcing availability on Steam, a brand new Hot Wheels Legends Car Pack was revealed. The DLC consists of six cars, including two cars that were real-life winners of the Hot Wheels Legends Tour car show.
That includes the 2018 winning “2JetZ” built by Luis Rodriguez and the “Nash Metropolitan” 2019 tour winner built by Greg Salzillo and Dave Ford.
Fun fact, I was actually at Mattel when the “2JetZ” Hot Wheels car was revealed. I got to tour their creative facility and interview Luis Rodriguez about his build. You can check it out in the video below.
The Hot Wheels Legends Car Pack DLC currently doesn’t have hard date, only that it is “upcoming”. Hopefully the wait won’t be too long as driving the 2JetZ around the virtual UK landscape is admittedly pretty tempting for us.
