Halo Is Crossing Over Into Forza Horizon 3

The famous Warthog from the Halo franchise will be making an appearance in Forza Horizon 3. The vehicle will be playable on launch next month.

“The 2554 AMG Transport Dynamics M12S Warthog CST is a civilian transport alternative to its militaristic cousin, the M12 Force Application Vehicle,” the developer explains. “What it may lack in brute force – you won’t find a turret on this version – it more than makes up for with its 720 bhp twin turbo V8, making it significantly faster than its FAV counterpart. The Warthog CST in Forza Horizon 3 is also ideally suited for the rough and tumble landscape of Australia.

“With the most advanced suspension in Forza Horizon 3 (with more than 70 cm of suspension travel), plus advanced dampening, you won’t find the combination of power and stability like this anywhere else in the Horizon Festival.”

Players who have played Halo 5: Guardians or Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be sent a code during the week of September 5th that will give them free access to the vehicle. Thankfully, for those that haven’t played either game, there is still hope at getting the vehicle. Players will be able to earn the Warthog via a special in-game even known as #Forzathon.

Forza Horizon 3 is set to launch September 27th for the Xbox One and PC.
