‘Forza Horizon’s New “1000 Club” Is Must-Have DLC That’s Free And… Controversial?

The Lamborghini Aventador has been my faithful steed in Colorado high country. Not in real life, though. These roads would eat that machine alive.

People like to name their cars, can you blame them? This is Fluffy.

I’ve said it before, but I love Forza Horizon. If I weren’t obligated to work, live, eat, use the restroom, and other games, I might never stop playing it. Today made the fight even worse as Turn 10 and Playground Games just dropped some epic free DLC that introduces the “1000 Club”, which is literally a thousand new challenges. Of course, you can’t give away DLC like that without someone complaining.

See, many of the new challenges in this free DLC are based around owning specific cars, but while many of those can be acquired by winning races and getting cash, others are only accessible if you bought other sets of DLC with real dollars. So, if you never invested an additional dollar to Forza Horizon beyond acquiring the base game, there’s no way to acquire all of the medals in these new challenges.

This seems a little short-sighted. If you’ve put as much time into this game as I have (or presumably you, if collecting all thousand medals is a priority) and then add in the time to beat all of “1000 Club”‘s content, then why haven’t you put in some extra money already? You aren’t entitled to all this content at all and from what I can see, a good 90%+ is based on content that’s already available in the game.

At any rate, as soon as you pop on your copy of Forza Horizon, you’ll be prompted to download the DLC right away.
