Forza Horizon 3 has gone gold today, and to coincide with the good news, Microsoft has announced a special bonus for all owners of Halo 5: Guardians and Halo: The Master Chief collection. Those who have a copy of either title and purchase this year’s racer will get free access to the iconic Warthog vehicle from the Xbox One’s flagship franchise.
The so-called M12S Warthog will be available to drive around Forza’s tracks from day one, with codes being sent out through Xbox Live beginning this week. For those that don’t own either game and have no intention of doing so, Microsoft says you’ll have the chance to earn the bonus vehicle during a so-called Forzathon event in October.
Over 350 assorted cars will be available to burn rubber with in Forza Horizon 3 from release day on September 27, and for glimpse at the Warthog in action, give the trailer above a quick look-see.
In his hands-on preview of the racing sim at this year’s E3, our own Chad Goodmurphy said it was “gorgeous, immersive and just downright fun. As a result, it’s easily one of my most anticipated upcoming releases and one of the most enjoyable things I’ve played thus far at E3.”
We’ll see if the full game manages to live up to those impressions in just a few weeks.
