As revealed earlier today, Forza Horizon 4 is getting LEGO content in the game’s new update – LEGO Speed Champions. Design Manager Specialist Christopher Stamp joined Playground Games Principal Game Designer Mike Brown at E3 in Los Angeles, California, to talk about bringing LEGO Speed Champions into Forza Horizon 4.
“We work with a lot of different partners with the product line we produce, and because you guys do as well, we kind of run in the same circles,” Christopher explained. After meeting at different automotive trade shows, the LEGO Group and Playground started discussing a collaboration.
The new LEGO update for Forza Horizon 4 will bring more than just Speed Champions cars into the popular video game – creativity will be on display, with a dinosaur graveyard, crashed UFO site and pirate’s cove to make it feel like a fully realised LEGO environment. In a natural valley, this entire LEGO world has been constructed for a full on brick festival.
This Forza Horizon 4 expansion will launch on Thursday, June 13, when players will be able to do some open world LEGO racing.
Will there be a tie-in LEGO set? “Who knows what the future holds,” says the Design Specialist.
