A new Australian automotive adventure has begun with the worldwide release of Forza Horizon 3. Playable on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, the game is now available in all Xbox regions across the globe (except Japan, where it will be available on Sept. 29). Since the launch of the Ultimate Edition of the game last week, it’s been amazing to see the excitement and acclaim the game has created with early adopters, and I can’t wait to see how crazy things get now that fans everywhere will be joining in on the fun.
Looking to get in on the Forza action? Here’s a snapshot of all things Forza Horizon 3 during launch week.
Your Game, Your Festival
Forza Horizon 3 brings the Horizon Festival to Australia – the most beautiful and diverse setting yet in the series. As boss of the Horizon Festival, you’ll have the power to decide when and where the festival expands, as you drive, jump, drift and race to earn millions of fans along the way. With gorgeous graphics and brand new ways to play, like four-player campaign co-op and Xbox Play Anywhere, Forza Horizon 3 is the ultimate open-world racing game.
Forza Horizon 3 is available in three different versions to fit every racer. The Standard Edition features the full version of the game with more than 350 different vehicles to choose from and countless hours of gameplay to enjoy.
With the Deluxe Edition, players receive VIP membership (which includes double earnings on level up wheel-spins, free gifts from the Forza Community Team, and more) and the Forza Horizon 3 Motorsport All-Stars Car Pack, featuring 10 amazing race cars – the first time purpose-built race cars have appeared in the Forza Horizon series.
For the Forza fan looking to go even further with their Forza Horizon 3 experience, we have the Ultimate Edition. In addition to receiving all the content from the Deluxe Edition of the game, Ultimate Edition owners will also receive the Forza Horizon 3 Car Pass, which includes access to six months of monthly DLC cars starting in October.

To celebrate the launch of Forza Horizon 3, we’ve got a number of livestream shows planned this week.
