When the latest installment to Forza's Horizon series came out a year ago, there were two noticable omissions from the list of manufacturers, Mitsubishi and Toyota-Lexus. Mitsubishi was left entirely out of the game and Toyota only had a couple SUVs on the vehicle roster. The Celica, LFA, and the legendary Toyota Supra were nowhere to be found. A few months ago we were treated to Mitsubishi's return with classics like the 3000GT and the Lancer, but Toyota still had little presence in the game.
That changed today. Forza introduced the Series 17 update which includes a new game mode, bug fixes, and the addition of the Toyota Supra. You get the car by playing a round of the new game mode, which is called Eliminator. Eliminator is a sort of racing battle royale mode that's loads of fun to play so it shouldn't be a chore to hop into a game to get the car.
The addition of the Supra meant glorious blowoff-valve whistles, huge horsepower gains, and a massive amount of aftermarket cosmetics. You can even install the same wing that the Fast and Furious Supra had.
The return of the Toyota Supra was possible because the licensing issues with Toyota have been resolved long term. This means that we'll soon start seeing other Toyota-Lexus models like the Celica, the MR-2, and the glorious Lexus LFA. I'm excited to get behind the drivers seat of Toyota's best.
