In Sydney this weekend and want to get somewhere fast? Like, really fast? Well then, here’s good news for you! Xbox Australia have partnered with the on-demand car booking app Uber to add some serious horsepower to their fleet of cars. Not content with hitching a ride in a Statesman or Prius? How about a Nissan GT-R? Or a Ferrari 458 Italia? Or a frickin’ Lamborghini Aventador?!
This is all to celebrate the release of Forza Horizon 2 (which is now available on Xbox 360 nd Xbox One) with Jeremy Hinton, Business Group Lead for Interactive Entertainment at Microsoft Australia, saying:
“Taking a trip in a Lamborghini or Ferrari is something that most of us would consider a dream experience. We wanted to mark the launch of Forza Horizon 2 in Australia by helping our fans turn this dream into a reality. To celebrate this occasion we will bring the supercars featured in game, which are considered by many to be amongst the most desirable cars in the world, to our fans.”
So, if you’re in Sydney this weekend for, I don’t know, the EB EXPO or NRL grand finals, here’s a quick and easy guide for getting your buns in one of these marvels of modern engineering!
1. Download the Uber app on an Apple, Android or Windows device, and create an account.
2. Enter the promo code “UBERFORZA” when signing up, or in the PROMOTIONS section of the app if you’re already an Uber user.
3. Select the “Forza” option.
4. Check the ETA, hit “REQUEST FORZA” when you’re ready to go, and enjoy the ride!
The supercars will be available: Friday 3rd October, 10am – 6pm, Saturday 4th October, 9am – 6pm, Sunday 5th October, 8am – 4pm.
Demand will be high and availability limited. If you can’t get a supercar right away try again.
