Playground Games unveiled their plastic brick racing crossover expansion at E3 this year, and it looks wonderful. Forza Horizon 4 and LEGO combine into Forza Horizon 4: LEGO Speed Champions and it has surprised and exceeded the expectation of fans. The game keeps its comedic tone and combines it with the competitive racing feel of Forza giving players an experience they are not likely to forget.

The car models were impressively detailed using the same number of polygons needed to recreate the cars of Forza. The detail compliments the lighting effects that capture the slightly translucent nature of the plastic bricks and the car models themselves. The detail stretched down to the little plastic studs which reveal the famous embossed LEGO trademark. Even stickers are placed on the models to represent door handles, and license plates are replicates of the pressed-on-sticker used in actual LEGO models.

The cars are only a small part of the expansion as a whole new LEGO-themed world is ready to be discovered featuring nine zones to explore. Each has a tremendous amount of variety to them from Pirate’s Cove, A desert with dinosaur skeletons, a full racetrack, and a theme park called Super Mega Awesome Adventure Stunt Park. This whole new world contains about 10 to 15 hours of additional gameplay with seasonal changes affecting the world through winter, autumn, summer. And spring.

As players drive to explore this new world, the LEGO Brick Challenge Campaign rewards you with bricks needed to build your Master Builder’s House. As you complete the house, you can collect the remaining LEGO cars and have even more options for your selection in Forza. You can earn these bricks through PR Stunts, Races and other similar challenges scattered around the map. As your house and brick collection grows, so does your garage and capacity to collect even more cars.

You are not limited to only driving LEGO vehicles in the LEGO-themed world. If you would instead use a different car, you can easily do so as well as bringing LEGO vehicles into the maps of Forza Horizon 4. The expansion was released on June 13th so you can experience this adventure now on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs as an Xbox Play Anywhere title. Forza Horizon 4 LEGO Speed Champions will cost $19.99 but will be no additional cost for plays who own the Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate Edition, the Forza Horizon 4 Expansion Bundle or the Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate Add-Ons Bundle.

Xbox Game Pass members have access to the standard edition of Forza Horizon 4 and are eligible for 10% off of the games full purchase.
