    Turn 10 Studios have revealed performance specifications for the free Halo Warthog DLC coming to Forza Horizon 3. The Warthog is a fictional vehicle from the popular Halo game franchise, and is due to be added to Horizon 3 as a reward for Xbox One and Windows 10 gamers who own either Halo 5: Guardians or Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

    The 2554 AMG Transport Dynamics M12S Warthog CST is a "transport alternative to its militaristic cousin, the M12 Force Application Vehicle" packing an impressive 720 bhp twin turbo V8, 70 cm of suspension travel and advanced dampening. Top speeds of 119mph coupled with its superior off road capabilities make the Warthog a formidable off road proposition in Horizon 3.

    Halo Warthog Utility Vehicle Stats:
    • Vehicle Layout: Front-engine, AWD, 2 Seater
    • Type: Twin Turbo 8L V8 Power: 720bhp at 6500rpm Torque: 855ft/lbs at 3200rpm
    • Top Speed: 119mph (limited by gearing)
    • 0-60mph: 3.7sec
    • 0-100mph: 9.81sec
    • 1/4 mile: 12.4sec @ 109.4mph

Fanatec H-pattern support will hopefully be included in the future, however no comment has been forthcoming on this subject by Turn 10.

    If Turn 10 cared as much about physics as they do about looks, we'd be getting somewhere.
    • Agree Agree x 7

    Not much interest in this title but is the Halo Warthog really the best vehicle they could come up with to promote it? Surely there is something more exciting than this included?
    • Agree Agree x 4
  6. Yeah, and you only get it if you own Halo game(s) i think. So i think most of us simmers wont even get it lol. :D

    Well I like my Sim racers so not too keen on this. Forza Horizon was just released on Xbox 360 games with gold so I'll give it a go on my Xbox One but I'm not expecting anything great from it.
    But yeah. A fictional car from Halo isn't the best way to promote this sort of title if I'm honest...

    Forza Horizon in my opinion does exactly what it sets out to do. To be an open world racer with semi believable physics. The Halo vehicle makes complete sense to me. There are tons of Halo fans and if including this vehicle gets a few of them to buy the game then it did its job. I have said it before but I'm excited about it as sometimes you just want to thrash through the jungle and not have a care in the world.

    Oh don't get me wrong. I'm a massive Halo fan too. (No other reason for owning an Xbox One tbh)
    Just think it's a bit Nintendo-esque having crossovers between not only different titles but different genres completely.
    I can't help thinking about the fighting game the kids loved on the Wii or whatever and it had all different Nintendo characters from over the years.

    I know people will relish this opportunity but for everyone that loves there also will be some that don't care for it.

  10. I think it looks more like a puma.
    • Haha Haha x 1
  11. That reference ;D I feel so old now.
    • Agree Agree x 1
  12. Tell me about it. Haha, that quote always stuck with me and after posting I went and watched some of the episodes. I couldn't believe that was 2003! Didn't realize it was that long ago.
