Forza Horizon 3 gets wintery Blizzard Mountain expansion

Latest expansion pack provides miles of snow and ice to race across

Very few automotive experiences can be more fun than driving in the snow, and happily that experience translates quite nicely into racing videogames.

On this basis, the new Blizzard Mountain expansion pack for open-world racer Forza Horizon 3 should be a riot - and it's just become available for the XBox One and PC versions of the game.

Just like the Storm Island downloadable content for Forza Horizon 3, Blizzard Mountain is entirely about driving off the beaten track, but with a distinct wintery theme.

As well as the mountainous new terrain (slightly different from the Australian outback focus of the standard game) and snowy conditions (ditto), a series of new vehicles has been released to make best use of the low grip routes.

These include two Lancia rally icons, the 1975 Lancia Stratos HF Group 4 and 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Group B, as well as a 2016 Subaru WRX STI rally car. On the truck side, there's also a 1965 Ford F-100 Flareside Abatti Racing Trophy Truck, Nissan's 2016 Titan Warrior concept, and RJ Anderson's #37 Polaris RZR-Rockstar Energy Pro 2 Truck. One of Ken Block's many spectacular vehicles will also make an appearance, in the form of his 2016 Ford Focus RS rallycross car.

And these are just in addition to the dozens of suitable vehicles already in Forza Horizon 3, which should feel as at-home in the frozen conditions as they do bombing across red, sandy terrain. Those with a will for exploring can also find another suitable car as a "barn find" within the game.

Blizzard Mountain is available now on the XBox store, for $19.99.
