Forza Horizon Rally Expansion Detailed

Playground Games’ design director Ralph Fulton has discussed the new content that will be included in Forza Horizon‘s upcoming Rally expansion pack.

The team has been working on the Rally expansion ever since Forza Horizon went gold, the pack will be independent of the game’s world, according to Fulton. “Everybody here now is totally heads down on rally. And they have been for maybe about a month or so, maybe six weeks, because obviously work finishes on Horizon in advance of it coming out,” he said in a recent interview with IGN. “That work really continues right the way up until December when we put the pack the pack together and release it on Xbox Live.”

As for the content itself, it appears to be in line with most other rally games, offering several events complete with individual stages. “We’re trying to put together a really enthralling rally package,” Fulton explained. “I think there’s an opportunity to go much deeper into that pure rally experience. That’s maybe something we didn’t have the chance to do in the broader context of Horizon itself but we identified that pure, one-car-on-a-rally-route, really intense rally experience that you can get if you go deep into rally is something that I think a lot of people are going to respond to and really look forward to.”

“Now I’m not sure of figures, right off the bat, but I know there are, I think, seven individual rallies within the pack. Each event is broken up into multiple stages so you get that stage by stage experience in each rally, and that’s really what we’re trying to do there,” he continued.  “We’re just trying to go a little bit deeper [into that] rally experience that you get from just having one car on a really narrow, intense, undulating route.”

“It’s not going to be part of the open world, because obviously we’re changing quite a lot of the world and that’s going to make synching up between people who have and don’t have the pack difficult. So instead you’re going to choose to enter the Horizon Rally Championship. That’s going to take you off into a separate mode in which you get to experience the new routes and the new terrain that we’ve built,” Fulton concluded.
