A group of stunt drivers are helping promote the new Forza Horizon 3 motorsports game on the Xbox One by driving across Canada and pulling off one of two stunts selected by Xbox enthusiasts.
The video game’s #AcrossTheHorizon campaign, which will cross the country from Vancouver to Montreal, will stop in five major cities and let visitors to its website vote which of the two stunts it’ll do in each one.
Your pick: will they “tackle ravine runs, mud pits and rocky roads in a Polaris Side X Side in Wawa or conquer 30-degree climbs and catch some air in a Ford F-150, at an abandoned mine in Quarry Park”? “Speed challenges in a McLaren 570S at Shannonville Motorsport Park or drift like a pro in custom cars at Topp Drift”?
The campaign has already made its way to Saskatchewan, but you can still get your votes in for the remaining stunts. It all ends in Montreal with a massive car show and game demo September 23 thru 25. Forza Horizon 3 hits store shelves September 27.
