December is here and with its arrival some see Christmas just around the corner. However, for some this month will be the arrival of the latest expansion of their favorite game "Forza Horizon 3." The update was recently announced by Microsoft itself. From what is revealed the update will bring the winter season into the racing video game.

The upcoming update called Blizzard Mountain will be arriving by Dec. 13 with the Forza Horizon owners being able to get it with the "Forza Horizon 3" expansion pass, MSPoweruser noted. The pass originally costs $34.99. Those who own the ultimate edition of the game can get the extension pass for $24.99. The new expansion will add new features, events, challenges and of course new cars.

According to what is out already, this expansion which is the first time that players will have to deal with blizzards, ice, and snow will be facing a new phase of difficulty from those conditions alone. It was also revealed that up to a total of 50 new events and challenges has been added to "Forza Horizon 3." There are also three new events to compete in which is the Blizzard, Descent, and Hill Climb that are set in challenging conditions.

PC Gamer added that there are also new areas to drift through like an extreme sports snow park and a frozen lake. There are also small but nice details like bonus boards to smash, beauty spots and a brand new hidden Barn Find vehicle which community Brian Ekberg wrote about. Finally, this update will be useless if there are no new cars and fortunately, there is!

The new Blizzard Mountain expansion is bringing in seven sweet rides to choose from. There are new car editions like 2016 Ford GYMKHANA 9 Focus RS-RX, 2016 Nissan Titan Warrior Concept, 2016 Rj Anderson #37 Polaris RZR-Rockstar Energy Pro 2 Truck and a 2016 Subaru #199 WRX STI VT15r Rally Car. As well as the old classic ride like a 1965 Ford F-100 Flareside Abatti Racing Trophy Truck, 1975 Lancia Stratos HF Group 4, and a 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Group B.

"Forza Horizon 3" is an open-world racing game that was developed by Playground Games with the help of Turn 10 Studios. It was published by Microsoft Studios for Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. The racing game's ultimate edition was released last Sept. 23 and Sept. 27 for the deluxe edition.
