Forza Motorsport 3 Eyes the Finish Line with Full Car and Track Lists plus Free Launch Day Add-ons
LONDON – 7 October 2009 – Racing fans and car lovers the world over are counting down the days until the much anticipated release of “Forza Motorsport 3” on Oct. 23, exclusively for Xbox 360. With the finish line in sight, Turn 10 and Microsoft are looking toward the winner’s circle as they officially release the game’s full list of cars and tracks on Forzamotorsport.net. On launch day, that list will grow even larger with the release of a free Game Add-on car and track pack, available exclusively by way of a one-time-use token card included in every new copy of “Forza Motorsport 3.” To celebrate these announcements, the team has also released the game’s official online trailer, featuring never-before-seen gameplay footage.

Putting the speculation amongst the buzzing Forza community to rest, Turn 10 has lifted the curtain on the more than 400 cars and 100 tracks to be featured in “Forza Motorsport 3.” The garage roster includes 30 Ferraris, 28 iconic Porsches, as well as cars not previously available in any racing game, such as the new Aston Martin DBS, Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR, and the 2009 Acura ARX ALMS race car. “Forza Motorsport 3” players will be the first to fully paint, customize, and tune these incredible cars and more.

Additionally, the Motorsports Legends Car Pack gives players another great reason to be excited about picking up “Forza Motorsport 3” on launch day, delivering 10 classic race cars and roadsters, on top of two extra tracks: the brand new Benchmark High Speed Ring and the returning circuit Sidewinder Proving Grounds. On Oct. 27, this pack will be exclusively available via a one-time-use token card included in every new copy of “Forza Motorsport 3.”

The Benchmark High Speed Ring is best described as an old airfield and hangar converted into a race track and automotive playground, perfect for all manner of creative “Forza Motorsport” hoonage and multiplayer mayhem. The track is characterized by 3.96 miles of rough surfaces and huge open areas, featuring a massive oval, an 8-lane drag strip, and an airplane hangar that players can drive (or drift) through.

The free Motorsports Legends Car Pack includes these 10 cars hand picked by Turn 10:

· ’65 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA

· ’64 Aston Martin DB5 Vantage

· ’81 BMW M1

· ’60 Chevrolet Corvette

· ’69 Dodge Charger

· ’57 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa

· ’80 Fiat 131 Abarth

· ’67 Lamborghini Miura P400

· ’71 Nissan Skyline 2000 GT-R

· ’65 Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe

“Forza Motorsport 3” is rated PEGI 3+ for Everyone and will be available in the UK on Oct. 23, 2009. To access and download the new online launch trailer, visit: http://edelmanadmin.psni.com/public/Forza%20Motorsport%203/Videos/ or Forzamotorsport.net
