Every racing game wants a piece of crazy stunt racing it seems. It’s a good opportunity for Mattel’s Hot Wheels brand of toy cars and tracks to cross-over into games. Forza Horizon 3, the open-world and more arcadey cousin to the Forza Motorsport series is getting an expansion all based around Hot Wheels.

The Hot Wheels expansion comes with a new campaign and includes at least 9 new cars, including a few iconic Hot Wheels original designs like the Twin Mill in the header [...]
