Forza Motorsport 3 Starts Co-Op Engines on October 27th

If you're the type of gamer that has to max out your in-game ranks and unlockables, then games like Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsport are probably your Mount Everest peak, arriving out of the box with hundreds of hours' worth of racing just to get every car.

Forza Motorsport 3 zooms onto North American Xbox 360s on October 27th, and every Limited Collector's Edition customer gets access to ten exclusive cars, five of which have been tuned and painted within the game by the development team at Turn 10. Furthermore, a custom-painted Audi R8 V10 as designed by community contest-winner Justin Van Dusen will be available exclusively to those who pre-order any version of the game.

The Limited Collector's Edition is only available at GameStop. Completionists, we just cost you $80.

In addition to the ten aforementioned cars, the edition with fancy packaging will contain a 2GB flash drive, a keychain, and VIP status in the Forza 3 community...whatever that does. Below is the list of cars included:


Available to VIP member 2009 Aston Martin DBS 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 2007 Ferrari 430 Scuderia 2007 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS (997) Collector's Car Pack tuned and painted by Turn 10
Audi R8 5.2 FSI Quattro Acura NSX (Forza Motorsport Cover Car) Nissan Fairlady (Forza Motorsport 2 Cover Car) Aston Martin DB9 (Forza Motorsport 2 European Cover Car) 2008 Dodge Charger Stock Car (with Xbox 360 livery)


It's a little-known tidbit that Forza Motorsport 2 allowed a second player to join your Career mode, either offline via splitscreen, or online. By all accounts, it looks like Forza 3 will up the ante, listed on as having 2-player offline co-op and 8-player online co-op.

We're not all guns and zombies at Co-Optimus, so expect us to follow up on this game as details progress and the release date nears.
