Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA) and Microsoft Studios’ Turn 10 Studios today announced the availability of the Porsche Expansion Pack for Forza Motorsport 4, giving players the chance to get behind the wheel of 30 Porsche vehicles.
Forza Motorsport 4 is the highest-rated racing game of this generation, available exclusively for Xbox 360. The Porsche Expansion Pack will be offered for download through Xbox LIVE for those who own the Forza Motorsport 4 game for 1600 Microsoft Points.
“This is an excellent opportunity for Porsche to offer a virtual experience with our sports cars in a very fitting environment – on race tracks around the world,” said Andre Oosthuizen, vice president of marketing for Porsche Cars North America. “In many ways, best-selling gaming titles like Forza Motorsport 4 generate enthusiasm for products that often translate into a lifelong connection to the brand.”
“Turn 10 has been pleased and privileged to work with the fans of Forza within the Porsche organisation,” said Mike Humphreys, director of business development at Turn 10 Studios. “We’re gratified about their enthusiasm for partnering with us to deliver their storied marque to the many fans of racing games.”
“The emotion and realism of Forza 4 creates so much of that same challenge and buzz I get out of putting a sportscar on the edge during my day job,” said Patrick Long, Porsche Motorsport factory driver. “It’s also an excellent way to learn the same tracks that we race in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) and around the world. In addition, it is really cool to share the experience with our fans while at the same time driving one of my dream combinations of my favourite Porsche models on my favourite racetracks around the world.”
In addition to Porsche street cars, several notable Porsche Motorsport customer racecars are also offered as part of the Porsche Expansion Pack, as well as cars which compete in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) GT and GTC classes.
