Playground Games, via Turn 10 and Microsoft, have announced that their upcoming “Australia”-based open-world racing game Forza Horizon 3 has finally, officially, gone gold. This means it’s ready to head off to the printers for mass production ahead of the worldwide release on September 27.
Or, if you’ve ponied up for the Ultimate Edition, the 23rd of September. Because aside from including monthly car packs and other bonuses, you get a four day head start with the Ultimate Edition. Think how much of the game’s very special version of Australia you could see in four whole days!
Along with the “gone gold” announcement the developers have revealed all of the game’s starting cars via this neat pseudo-poster.
If squinting and guessing is not really your thing the full list of confirmed cars, including some of the ones coming in DLC, has been compiled by Dribbly Midget on the official Forza forums. They’re categorised by manufacturer, with pictures of some below the list.
Also revealed today, the full list of Xbox Live achievements!
