Forza 4 Season Pass Puts You in the Driving Seat
Posted by James Newton
Following the lead of Gears of War 3's DLC-granting Season Pass, Microsoft has announced a similar scheme for anticipated racer Forza Motorsport 4.
The pass costs 2,400 Microsoft Points and entitles holders to six pieces of add-on content to be released between November and April 2012. Promising 60 cars in total, the Season Pass knocks 30% off the cost of buying all the DLC separately, which isn't too bad at all.
There'll be a Forza 4 demo on Xbox Live for Gold members from 3rd October, with the demo opened up to everyone else on 7th October, just a few days before the game's available to buy.
Will you be grabbing the Season Pass to save money on DLC?
