Microsoft has officially announced the details and release date for the second "Forza Horizon 3" expansion, Hot Wheels.

According to the press release that Forza community manager, Brian Ekberg, posted on Wednesday, fans can expect the "Forza Horizon 3 - Hot Wheels" expansion to become available on May 9 for the Xbox One and Windows PC platforms. A special world debut live stream for the downloadable content is also set to happen a day before its release date.

"This expansion lets players travel to a brand-new location in Australia, a place where lazy Sunday drives are replaced by insane high-speed stunts on miles of looping, banking, giant iconic orange Hot Wheels tracks," the press release wrote. "Starring famous Hot Wheels vehicles like the Twin Mill, the Rip Rod, and the Bone Shaker, Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels promises an automotive adventure unlike anything in Forza history."

The upcoming DLC will come with several new playable vehicles - nine to be more precise. The cars that comes with "Forza Horizon 3 - Hot Wheels" expansion will include: 1969 Hot Wheels Twin Mill, 2011 Hot Wheels Bone Shaker, 2012 Hot Wheels Rip Rod, 2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang, 2016 Jeep Trailcat, 2016 Zenvo ST1, 2007 Toyota Hilux Arctic Trucks AT38, 2010 Pagani Zonda R and the 1972 Chrysler VH Valiant Charger R/T E49.

"Forza Horizon 3 - Hot Wheels" DLC will come out free for those who already purchased the expansion pass. However, fans who don't have it can still purchase the expansion separately for $19.99. Watch the official release trailer below, as posted by Microsoft on its Xbox YouTube channel.

Meanwhile, a new patch is scheduled to come out for "Forza Horizon 3" alongside the upcoming expansion.

More details about the matter will be posted on May 9.
