Forza Horizon 3 is now Xbox One X Enhanced

We love Forza Horizon 3 here at TiX, and the great news is that it has now been updated to be Xbox One X Enhanced! Yes, now we can all race around Australia in stunning native 4k!

Forza Horizon 3 on Xbox One X is powered by the same state-of-the art ForzaTech engine at the heart of the Forza franchise, also used to develop Forza Motorsport 7 for Xbox One X which brought native 4K resolution racing to the new platform. Forza Horizon 3 enhancements let players experience the game in native 4K along with a host of additional visual updates, including improved car reflections and shadow resolutions, improved texture detail for road and terrain surfaces, and more. In addition, 4K resolution enhancements will be fully compatible with both Blizzard Mountain and Hot Wheels expansions for Forza Horizon 3. Whether you’re careening across the dunes of the Outback in your favourite off-roader or building up a legion of fans with death-defying stunt driving in the rainforest, the 4K-enhanced version of Forza Horizon 3 is a thrilling blend of fantastic gameplay and cutting-edge visuals.


FF15’s Regalia comes to Forza Horizon 3

Playground Games continues to add new and free content to Forza Horizon 3. Hot on the wheels (pun intended) of the Hot Wheels expansion sees the addition of Prince Noctis’ Regalia from Final Fantasy XV, which will arrive to the game on August 1st.

You will have needed to play FF15 on the xbox to be eligible for this free content, with Forza Horizon 3 players able to redeem the Regalia via the in-game messaging system, and Final Fantasy XV players will get a code to redeem the car in an Xbox Live message.

Two new Xbox One S bundles incoming

Microsoft have announced that two new Xbox One S bundles are about to be released.

The bundles are the Xbox One S Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition Bundle (1TB) and Xbox One S Forza Horizon 3 Bundle (1TB and 500GB).

The Halo Wars 2 bundle comes with a copy of the Ultimate Edition, which includes the Season Pass and early access to the game, while the Forza Horizon edition come with a standard copy of the game.

Both consoles are available on the Microsoft Store for £299 and £249 respectively now.

Blizzard Mountain coming to Forza Horizon 3 on Dec 13

It’s getting cold outside and now things are getting chilly in the world of Forza Horizon 3. Playground Games have announced that the first expansion to the game, Blizzard Mountain releases on December 13.

For the first time in a Forza title there will be snow, ice, extreme elevations and blizzards to challenge players in their quest to become the King of the Mountain. Players will get to explore a new snowy mountain playground and drive 8 new vehicles including the 2016 Ford GYMKHANA 9 Focus RS RX – there will also be brand new events to take part in.

What’s that coming over the hill? Is it a Warthog?

Yes, Yes it is…

The M12S Warthog CST will be available at launch for Forza Horizon 3, and will be sent as a free download to everyone who has played either Halo 5: Guardians or Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Xbox One. Eligible players will receive codes to download the Warthog via an Xbox Live Message, and codes will begin to be sent out during the week of Sept. 5.
