Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious is an upcoming standalone expansion — basically a game of its own — that ties the rubber-burning, open world driving action of Forza Horizon 2 in with the popular Fast & Furious movie franchise. In celebration of the April 3 theatrical release of Furious 7, Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious (say that mouthful five times, fast and furiously) will be available as a free download on Xbox 360 and Xbox One from March 27 through April 10. After that, it will cost $10 for anyone that did not download it during the initial release window.

“Forza is synonymous with racing and fun, so it’s only natural for us to work with one of the most celebrated action franchises in the world,” said Xbox Impresario Phil Spencer. “This is a great way to bring Forza players into the world of ‘Fast & Furious,’ and in Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious, every fan will get a chance to go wheels-first into the exciting action of the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise.”

The game features over 11 iconic cars from the film series, including a few from the upcoming Furious 7. Mechanic Tej Parker (played by rapper Ludacris) hires the player to source cars for the Fast & Furious crew’s next big mission. By completing challenges based on the films you unlock more cars which can then be driven freely around the game’s southern France open world playground.

Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious comes out for free on March 27, which gives you a week of driving to get pumped up for the April 3 release of Furious 7. Head over to the Xbox Wire for more details and images from the upcoming game, and check out the trailer for Furious 7 here.
