Welcome back to another Ori and the Blind Forest fan art blog. This week’s beautiful image was found on Twitter and comes from user Guille (Twitter handle @khnoumecthelion), who found some real-life resemblance in the game’s characters.
Hey, Ori fans! Today, we have some cool stuff to share with you. If you have been following our blog, you know that we hosted an Ori employee event on the Microsoft campus last week. As part of this event, we had a live stream, demo stations, and some freebies. One of those free items can be yours now.
This week, we’ve got a look at the Mazda MX-5 Car Pack, which dropped last Tuesday, an update on the Forza Invitational, which debuts this Wednesday, and the upcoming launch of Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious, coming this Friday. And that’s not all! Buckle in people, and let’s hit this harder than Dominic Toretto hits the quarter mile!
Mazda MX-5 Car Pack
Free cars, am I right? Last week, we launched the free Mazda MX-5 Car Pack for Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox One, a four-pack of automotive awesomeness covering more than 20 years of Mazda sports car heritage. From the concept-only Mazda Super20 to the brand new 2016 Mazda MX-5, this pack is a treat for anyone who like small, zippy rides or, for older folks who remember being insanely jealous when their friends’ rich parents were snapping up 1990 Miata models for their spoiled kids! No, I’m not at all bitter. After all, like everyone else playing Forza Horizon 2, now I can hop in the new Miata of my choice and take a blast around southern Europe any time I want. Long live the roadster, indeed!
After last week’s Inside Microsoft Studios blog, we’ve been wanting to learn more about individuals in the teams that bring fun gaming experiences to you. We run into artist Jon Williams quite often in the office, so we chose him to be our next victim, ahem, I mean highlight. We chatted with him about his experience in the gaming industry, what his daily work day is like, and lessons learned at the studios.
