Take your pick which version of the Evo you want to drive in the game

If you’re like most fans of Forza Horizon 4 who have been wishing to get your hands on a Mitsubishi Evolution in the game, all your prayers have been answered. Turn 10 Studios is ringing in 2019 with a bang with the launch of the Mitsubishi Car Pack. If the thought of driving a Mitsubishi Evolution isn’t enough to get your video game juices flowing, the car pack actually includes not one, not two, not three, but four versions of the Evo. That’s on top of a handful of other must-drive Mitsubishis, including the Eclipse. Best of all, the pack is free of charge. It’s available as part of the game’s Series 5 update, which dropped on January 15.

Consider this a late Christmas present from Turn 10 Studios. It probably caught wind of the incessant clamoring to bring the Mitsubishi Evolution to Forza Horizon. Now that the studio has secured to license from Mitsubishi, well, it’s time to bring those Xbox One units to life. Now we get to see how the Mitsubishi Evolution can line up against some of today’s best performance cars. But before that, let’s look at all the cars the Mitsubishi Car Pack comes with.

As I mentioned, there are four versions of the Evolution that are available. That lineup includes the 1999 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI GSR, the 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO VIII MR, the 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO IX MR, and the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X GSR. That’s a potent dose of Evolution, folks, but it doesn’t end there, too.

The pack also includes the 1992 Mitsubishi Galant VR4, the 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX, and the 1997 Mitsubishi GTO.

The GTO, in particular, is a treat in it of itself. We’re more familiar with it by its name here in the U.S. — the 3000GT — but the GTO was a barn-burner in its own right. If it weren’t for the Evolution overload this car pack came with, I’d still be giddy knowing that the GTO is included in it.

Outside of the seven Mitsubishis that are making their long overdue Forza 4 debuts, the game’s Series 5 updates also include a handful of important tweaks and updates to the overall gaming experience. Those who play the game with connected steering wheels, for example, should receive better feedback response form the game because of the update.

A few existing bugs have also been fixed, including the ability to save controller mappings for multiple devices.

The Mitsubishi Car Pack’s arrival comes at a good time for the game, too. Just last month, Turn 10 Studios released the Fortune Island Expansion Pack for the game. That pack included a new island to serve as another playground for the game’s existing lineup of cars. Now that the Mitsubishi Car Pack is available, you better believe that a lot of gamers, myself included, would throw our new (virtual) Evolutions straight into that island to see how they can handle it.

Well, that’s enough talking from me. Please excuse me as I download Forza Horizon 4’s Series 5 update. The weekend is coming up fast, and I can’t think of a better way to spend it that in my couch, controller in hand, terrorizing the game with my brand-spankin’ new Evos.
