    This game is disappearing tomorrow for good! Last chance to purchase it

  • Whats the chance of this going to gamepass or games with gold. Im looking for a fortune teller :(

  • The Expansion Pass is also on sale for AU$15.73 (includes Hot Wheels & Blizzard Mountain add-ons). The Expansion Pass is not included in the Ultimate edition.
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/p/forza-horizon-3-expansion-...

    • What?!?! So the game is Ultimate in name but not ultimate in nature (ie doesn't include every DLC!)

      • It included everything as of when it was released, mainly smaller DLC (cars, credits etc). Hot Wheels and Blizzard Mountain were full fledged expansions with new areas, cars, missions etc.

        • The Expansion Pass is also on sale for AU$15.73 (includes Hot Wheels & Blizzard Mountain add-ons)

          Also bought the expansion pass but I found that you have to go to look for Hot Wheels & Blizzard Mountain from Store to install it not from the expansion pass screen you bought.

  • https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/557556

    Just bought it today but found that didn't work with 360 controller, so may be also won't work with 360 wheel. 😖

    • I've been playing on my good ol' wireless 360 controller. What's the issue on your end?

      • I've been playing on my good ol' wireless 360 controller

        This game? I have no problem with 360 controller on other games but not this one, the game won't detect this

        • The 360/XB1 drivers in W10 can be finnicky at times, but the various guides online around uninstalling/reinstalling may help. For me, I can't seem to get my Real Arcade Pro X360 to work at all (crashes my PC) but 99% of the time I'm using my Xbox One Elite controller so I'd rather keep it working.

          ps. Tried deleting the DLL/etc as per one guide, and it did not help at all. Just led to it not being recognised at all.

          • @jace88:

            The 360/XB1 drivers in W10 can be finnicky at times

            No problem with other games, only FH3 didn't recognize it.

          • @jace88: Finally found a way to get the 360 controller to work, the problem was caused by winver 2004 won't allow to manually install the receiver drivers (no problem with 1909)

            I have to use the win7 one and modified the inf file to install it but FH3 still won't recognize it and have to manually change the drivers back to the win10 default drivers (xusb22.sys) the win7 one is (xusb21.sys)

  • How do you still download/access after it’s removed from the store if you purchased it prior?

  • How do I know if I own any of the add ons/etc or if it is from Game Pass? It says I "Own" it when I look at the expansion pass/etc… but I only remember buying the OG.

  • Can someone explain what the expansions in ultimate actually are? I have no idea what VIP membership etc is, trying to work out if it's worth the 20 buck premium

  • Standard plus the expansion pass is going to get you the best bang for buck if you want to have the entire game while spending the least amount of money.
    This is ozbargin after all!
    that said ultimate is ok if you want some extra car packs and XP but it is in no way essential!

  • Thanks for heads up! Quite enjoying being lost in to F4H at the moment so seeing this is set in Oz and with these savings and it disappearing from sale- couldn’t not grab it. Cheers 👌🏻

    • Honestly I enjoyed FH3 a lot more than FH4… maybe because it was Australia, but it just felt less cluttered to play.

      • Awesome! Am even more excited to jump into then 😊 If only I had known how good these FH games were sooner - I could’ve grabbed My own XB1 X console, instead of hijacking my nephews XB1 🤣 And that sweet looking cyberpunk console at OG price Would’ve been ideal!

  • The ultimate is showing 71.70 CNY on CN MS store for me.

  • I don't have any car games (or a wheel etc) would this be the one to get? Have got PS4 controllers that seem to work with the PC.

    Cheers

    Edit: The Standard plus the expansion pass seems like the go, $13 for the standard is a no brainer can the EP be purchased later?
    microsoft store terribly slow on windows unless i'm doing it wrong

  • Thanks OP! didn't realise this is going to be pulled. So if we buy this now, will we be able to download it off the windows store indefinitely? Will the free cars also be pulled from the store? Just wondering if i should go through a mad rush of downloading everything if they are going to be pulled. thanks.

    • Once you purchase the game or any DLC - you can download it any anytime.

      You just can't purchase (or access) it once it's gone from the store.

  • I bought this ages ago using an Argentinian VPN. Anyone wanna see how much this is via VPN?

  • bought the standard + Expansion Pass( Blizzard mountain and hotwheels) for $18.91, thanks to Microsoft Rewards ($10)

  • Hey buds, I purchased the Ultimate Edition and received the Expansion Pass as well on PC, maybe because it is EOL.

    I was under the impression I had to buy Expansion pass separate but that's not the case for me :)

    Just confirmed again before posting…

  • If it reaches EOL, they should refund it, so dodgy.

    • It just means you can't buy anymore. You can still download and play for the foreseeable future from your Library…

      I heard that even online servers will be active for a while :)

  • I own the base game and Hot Wheels addon pack, I guess if I want the rest, I will have to pay again, no discount for me right ?

    • They probably sell some separately but who knowsfor how much? It should be finished now anyway (st least that's what people said yesterday I think?)

    • If you want the Blizzard Mountain DLC, it’s cheaper to buy the bundle (with Hot Wheels) than it is to buy it separately.

      Correct, there is no discount for already-own DLC (like Steam).

  • How are the loading times for this game? I found horizon 4s loading times turned me off the game, getting a series X so maybe it might be better on that?

  • If anyone missed out, I picked up the Standard edition for $12.60 @ Eneba - https://www.eneba.com/xbox-forza-horizon-3-pc-xbox-one-xbox-...
    Got the code instantly.

  • Still think it's a little odd that this is delisted a few days before they announce next months Games With Gold lineup. Small possibility it might end up being given away for free.

    • Small possibility it might end up being given away for free.

      If license related I don't think they have the rights to give it away for free.

      • As far as I know, an expired license means they cease the right to continue selling it. Also, the previous game was given away for free before it was completely pulled from the store:

        https://www.slashgear.com/forza-horizon-2-being-pulled-from-...

        Sure, this game hasn't followed the same path but it might be just a strategy to get a few more sales before it's available one last time for nothing. Feel free to call me crazy but in my opinion (and that's all it is), if it's not a Games With Gold this month, then next month might still hold a very small possibility. I'll be convinced it's gone forever after that.
