Racing games have come a long way from titles like "Cruisin' USA" and "Nigel Mansell's World Championship". Gamers are now used to being able to customize and drive their dream machines on world famous race tracks that look as good as real life.
The Forza Motorsport Series is a the top of the charts when it comes to console racing games and the latest iteration, Forza Horizon 2, hit stores today. The Horizon series focuses on an open world environment where racers can do what they please in essentially a "dream world" with no cops, or consequences. Horizon 2 has a massive car list with everything from VW Micro Buses to the Lamborghini Veneno.
Not only are you racing these vehicles, but making each car your own is a huge part of the experience. Customization in Horizon 2 has been taken to an entirely new level with the addition of over 26 HRE Wheels models including our Series P1, Vintage Series, FlowForm line and more.
"Seeing our latest designs recreated in this virtual world is something we're really proud of," said HRE President Alan Peltier. "This is an awesome way for our younger fans to test out their dream HREs on cars that they love."
Forza Horizon 2 looks like a lot of fun and we can't wait to get our hands on it. Not convinced? Check out this review from our friends at Stanceworks here.
"While they have not added many more wheel companies, they have brought in HRE Wheels’ full lineup, which is a big selection and adds a ton of variety. I just about hopped out of my seat when I saw the Vintage Series is now included in the game - These wheels were made via a collaboration with StanceWorks, and the brilliance is that they look just as natural on a vintage racer, as they do a 2014 Supercar. We can rejoice as we finally have a three piece mesh wheel to put on our cars in Forza. As the full lineup from HRE is included, we have a huge selection of great lookers, and even a set of their beadlocks to put on trucks. While it would have been nice to see even more wheel companies added in, if you were going to add one big one, HRE was, hands down, the way to go." - Jeremy Whittle, Stanceworks.com
