News Bites – 27th of April 2017
– Today’s insane-yet-amazing news is that Hot Wheels and Forza are combining in what must be the craziest idea to ever grace the Xbox. Forza Horizon 3 will be getting the Hot Wheels DLC on May 9 which will include classic Hot Wheels cars, crazy tracks and even mechanical dinosaurs. Honestly, how good does this sound? The DLC is included in the Horizon 3 Season Pass or available as a standalone purchase. This could be the STUNTS substitute we have been looking for.

CoD: WWII is the title and as previously announced, it takes the franchise back to the era of World War 2, the era that made the series famous.

– Sonic fans should feel a little more hopeful of a return to form after Sega released new gameplay footage from Sonic Forces. This footage showcases the ever enjoyable “Green Hill Zone” in what appears to be traditional 2D Sonic fashion. With Sonic Forces and Sonic Mania both hitting this year, could it finally be time for the blue speedster to return to the top of the gaming pile? We can only hope people, we can only hope.
