Have you ever dreamed of getting a Ferrari for Christmas? Well stop it, because it's not going to happen. Seriously, you're not getting a Ferrari.
However, your friends at STACK and Microsoft can give Xbox One gamers a taste of what it's like to burn pavement in your very own supercar. Want to feel the rush of blasting down the road in your fire-red Ferrari or maybe a custom-painted Lamborghini? Let us help.
Microsoft has sent us a stack (pun intended) of Christmas goodies and told us to spread the holiday cheer to readers of STACK. So check out what we have and what you need to do to win some awesome prizes that will add horsepower to your holiday.
Forza Motorsport 5 represents the pinnacle of console racing simulations. Get behind the wheel of hundreds of dream cars, from modern super racers to classic European roadsters and rubber-burning American muscle cars. You'll never race alone, since each of your competitor's cars is handled by individual "Drivatars," which simulate habits, tendencies and styles of real-life Forza racers. When you first get going in Forza Motorsport 5, you'll immediately begin laying the groundwork for how your personal Drivatar will respond in virtual races. Even when you're not playing, your Drivatar is out there competing against other drivers, earning you points to unlock more awesome driving machines.
Forza Horizon 2 is the latest racer to grace the Xbox One. No longer are you forced to race only on sanctioned racetracks. Tear through the European countryside in a massive open-world experience. Start impromptu street races along the coast or sign up for multi-race events to earn in-game cash and experience to unlock more drivable goodies.
The games are good. I mean, really good. You'll spend hours trying to win "just one more race" and add another dream car to your garage. The replay ability is high, and the fun factor is through the roof.
But it can get even better. Add a force-feedback steering wheel and set of pedals to the mix and raise the realism of this incredible racing sim to another gear. And what about sound? What's racing without the scream of a turbo engine or the throaty growl of a classic V-8? Thankfully, we've got you covered.
STACK is giving away three Forza prize packages to three lucky readers. Included are a Thrustmaster racing wheel (based on a real Ferrari steering wheel) and a fantastic wheel from Mad Catz to help you take the twistiest corners like a pro. Both wheels come with pedals to give you that real-car feel. Toss that game pad. Race for real.
To give your ears the best racing experience available, we are also giving away one Polk Audio soundbar, specifically tuned for the Forza franchise.
