Forza Motorsport 6: Apex fans can now experience Germany’s legendary Nürburgring track as part of the game’s latest paid expansion for Windows 10.

Microsoft revealed that players can get access to all current Apex content by purchasing the newly launched Forza Motorsport 6: Apex Premium Edition, which includes the full version of the game and three expansion packs.

Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is a Windows 10 port of developer Turn 10 Studios’ Xbox One racing game Forza Motorsport 6, and serves as the first free-to-play entry in the long-running series. Compared to its Xbox One predecessor, Apex offers few playable tracks and vehicles at the outset, though players can unlock additional in-game content by purchasing paid expansion packs.

Starting this week, Forza series veterans can take on the toughest race course Germany has to offer with the new Nürburgring downloadable content. Originally bundled for free with previous Forza series releases for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, the Nürburgring is exclusively available as a paid extra within the free-to-play world of Apex.

Nürburgring promises a lengthy challenge for the cost, however, as the full-length course takes place over a grueling stretch of nearly 18 miles. Players who purchase the DLC also have the option of racing shorter routes, which range from a two-mile warmup loop to the track’s infamous 14-mile north loop.

Also available for Forza Motorsport 6: Apex this week are two new car packs, each of which adds a selection of seven specialized vehicles to player garages. The new Power to Weight Car Pack includes the 2016 Ford Mustang GT350R, the 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat, the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, the 2013 SRT Viper GTS, the 2013 Caterham Superlight R500, the 2013 KTM X-Bow R, and the 2014 BAC Mono.

The Hyper Endurance Car Pack, meanwhile, boasts simulated versions of the 2016 No. 66 Ford Racing GT LeMans, the 2013  No. 91 SRT Motorsport GTS-R Viper, the 2016 Nissan No. 1 Nismo Motul Autech GT-R, the 2014 Mazda No. 70 SpeedSource Lola B12/80, the 2015 Koenigsegg One:1, the 2012 Hennessey Venom GT, and the 2013 Lamborghini Veneno.

Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is available as a free download for Windows 10 via the Windows Store. This week’s new content packs can be purchased individually or all at once via the Forza Motorsport 6: Apex Premium Edition Bundle, priced at $17.
