Fantastic news! Forza Horizon 3 has gone gold, and over the past few weeks, Turn 10 Studios and Playground Games have been revealing the available 350 cars piece by piece. However, they kept one secret until today, and that is the Halo UNSC Warthog.
“Today we’re unveiling a unique addition to the Forza Horizon 3 lineup, a vehicle that has long been requested by both the Forza and Halo communities. For the first time in any Forza game, you can now drive the most famous ground vehicle in the Halo universe – the Warthog!”
“The 2554 AMG Transport Dynamics M12S Warthog CST is a civilian transport alternative to its militaristic cousin, the M12 Force Application Vehicle. What it may lack in brute force – you won’t find a turret on this version – it more than makes up for with its 720 bhp twin turbo V8, making it significantly faster than its FAV counterpart. The Warthog CST in Forza Horizon 3 is also ideally suited for the rough and tumble landscape of Australia. With the most advanced suspension in Forza Horizon 3 (with more than 70 cm of suspension travel), plus advanced dampening, you won’t find the combination of power and stability like this anywhere else in the Horizon Festival.”
There’s a catch though! You need to have played either Halo 5: Guardians or Halo: The Master Chief Collection. 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 September 5th. If you haven’t played one of these Halo titles on Xbox One, there will be special Forza Horizon 3 events taking place once the game launches, allowing you the opportunity to unlock one for your garage.
The full Achievement list has also been detailed for Forza Horizon 3, which you can find here. We won’t share the details though, for those who want to be surprised and kept in the dark until September 27th when the game launches.
