Forza Horizon Pre-Order Available Now

Forza fans, the day you have been waiting for is here: Forza Horizon is now available for pre-order! The latest game in the Forza franchise is coming to retail stores starting on October 23 but you don’t have to wait to get in on the Horizon action!

Check out the Forza Horizon Pre-Order video:

Pre-order Forza Horizon today and you’ll receive exclusive content in both Forza Horizon and in Forza Motorsport 4! Here’s how it works:

If you pre-order Forza Horizon at a participating retailer, you’ll receive a special code you can use to download a 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 in Forza Motorsport 4, complete with a custom Forza Horizon livery created by the Forza community team (you will need a copy of Forza Motorsport 4 and an Xbox LIVE account to redeem). The SRT8 Challenger is a stunning example of American muscle and is ready to conquer the tracks of Forza Motorsport 4.

The following U.S. stores are offering early access to the Challenger for Horizon pre-order customers: Amazon and Best Buy. As more participating retail chains are added, we will keep you updated.

Once you’ve received your 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392, look for fun events and contests in Forza Motorsport 4 all summer long, including Rivals Mode events and hoppers, as well as photo and video contests, all starring the Horizon-themed SRT8 Challenger.

Upon the launch of Forza Horizon starting on October 23, those who have pre-ordered will also be able to download an exclusive car in Forza Horizon. The pre-order exclusive cars include:

2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG — While Mercedes doesn’t refer to the new SLS AMG as the “Gullwing”, it is absolutely the return of the famed automotive icon. With more than 560 horsepower, the SLS AMG is a track tamer nearly without equal, and its classic, sophisticated lines will attract car lovers of every stripe.

2010 Ferrari 458 Italia — A new Ferrari is always cause for celebration, and you can still hear the cheers from fans of the 458. Little wonder: the Prancing Pony went above and beyond the call with this gorgeous example of road-devouring art. The 458 produces 562 horsepower and a top speed over 200 mph, giving it the kind of performance you normally only see on the world’s greatest race tracks.

2012 Aston Martin Virage — Plush luxury meets frightening performance in the 2012 Aston Martin Virage. Comfortable enough for a long Sunday drive, yet sporting a blistering 490 horsepower V12, the Virage continues Aston Martin’s legacy of creating cars that are much more than their elegant exteriors bely.

2010 Nissan 370Z — Once again, Nissan has delivered a car that can compete with models ten times its price. The 370Z features grippy handling and drift-worthy rear wheel drive, motivated by a 3.7-liter, V6 with more than enough juice to excite even the most die-hard of sports car enthusiasts. In short, the 370Z can do it all.
