In a recent video on the official Xbox blog, Xbox Wire, Microsoft’s Larry Hryb showed fans a glimpse of the red carpet premiere for the latest film in the hit Fast and Furious franchise, Furious 7, and discussed the film’s recent promotional tie-in for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 racing game, Forza Horizon 2 — Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious.
Lending his voice to the game is Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges, who Larry Hryb talks to for a bit in the video (which you can watch at the end of this post). While they briefly discuss his involvement in the game, the main focus of the interview is actually his NPO, The Ludacris Foundation, which focuses on helping American youth and is given a small promotion within Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious which allows players to make an optional donation to the cause after earning a certain achievement.
The Forza Horizon 2 standalone expansion which launched last month is free for all users until April 10th when its price will increase to $9.99. For a film tie-in, the game is exceptionally well made and of the same quality as the main Forza games though naturally significantly smaller in size and content.
