Forza Motorsport 4 will bring together genre-defining, controller-based racing, the power and freedom of Kinect, and content from leading brands like “Top Gear” to create an automotive experience unlike anything before it.

Forza Motorsport 4 will be the most expansive and vividly realistic automotive experience across any console, bringing you closer to the edge than you’ve ever been before. Through the power of Kinect, players will be able to step through the TV screen and jump into the driver’s seat while the engaging controller-based experience will let you take on the bone-jarring physics, unparalleled levels of customization, and rosters of dream cars and tracks.

Turn 10 just released a free Hyundai Veloster Bonus Pack, ready for download on Xbox Live! This game add-on for “Forza Motorsport 4” is brought to you by Hyundai and includes two drivable cars and an all-new Autovista experience:

  • 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo – Officially unveiled today at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, this race-inspired, turbo-charged, 201-horsepower car can be explored in Autovista™ and is as quick on the track as it is impressive to look at. The Veloster Turbo’s asymmetrical 3-door design is one of its striking physical features and the 1.6 liter inline four provides plenty of power without losing fuel efficiency.
  • 2011 Rhys Millen Racing Hyundai Veloster – One of the latest in Hyundai’s burgeoning motorsports program, the 2011 Rhys Millen Veloster packs 500 horsepower and plenty of torque in a package that weighs just over 2,800 pounds. The result is a blistering fast all-wheel drive vehicle that’s bent for domination, whether racing, rallying, or drifting.

Fans Compete to Win a 2012 Hyundai Veloster: Following the new pack, on Tuesday, January 10, Turn 10 will launch the Hyundai Veloster: “Forza Motorsport 4” Time Trials event for registered players (registration closed last week).  This contest will span two Rivals Mode competitions over the next two months, with the grand prize winner taking home a 2012 Hyundai Veloster!
