As has happened in the past with Forza games, Forza Motorsport 6 is nearing EOL (end of life) and will no longer be available for purchase after September 15th.
Related to the above, Forza Motorsport 6 will enter “End of Life” status on September 15. This means that the game and its associated add-on content (including car packs and expansions) will no longer be available for purchase. Players who own Forza 6 before that date will still be able to download and play the game and its associated add-on content as normal but the game and add-on content will no longer be available for purchase on the Xbox Live Marketplace.Forzamotorsport.net
The good news? It’s currently available for free with the August Games with Gold AND the Complete Add-Ons Collection is currently 95% off! That’s right, not only can you score the game for free (if you are an Xbox Live Gold Member) but you can also get every add-on for the game ever released for only US$5.
To give you an idea of just what you get for $5, here’s a partial list of what’s included in the Complete Add-Ons Collection:
- Forza Motorsport 6 VIP
- Porsche Expansion
- NASCAR Expansion
- Top Gear Car Pack
- Fast & Furious Car Pack
- Turn 10 Summer Car Pack
- Turn 10 Select Car Pack
- eBay Motors Car Pack
- Meguiar’s Car Pack
- Mobil 1 Car Pack
- Hot Wheels Car Pack
- Alpinestars Car Pack
- 2069 Chryslus Rocket 69
- Numerous additional cars
Even though the Forza Motorsport 6 is a few years old, that’s an insanely decent price for the amount of content you get. If you’ve been on the fence about the game, or have been waiting to pick it up, now’s your best (and last) chance to do so.
While there hasn’t been a new Forza Motorsport game announced as of yet, it’s only a matter of time as Turn 10 has also stopped working on further development of Forza Motorsport 7. There’s almost no doubt that Forza Motorsport 8 will be a Project Scarlet release title, likely with Xbox One compatibility.
