The 2013 SRT Viper GTS in Forza 4

The 2013 SRT Viper comes to Forza Motorsport 4 this Friday - for FREE

Less than an hour ago, the Drive SRT Facebook page announced that the 2013 SRT Viper would be arriving in the virtual dealerships of Forza Motorsport 4 this Friday (June 22nd) as downloadable content and – much to our surprise – it will be available from the Xbox Marketplace for free.

No information has been offered as to whether this “free” 2013 SRT Viper coming to the Xbox Marketplace this Friday will be a single vehicle or if it will be the “Viper Pack” that was discussed when the introduction of the new Viper to FM4 was announced in April. Footage taken from Forza gameplay around the public debut of the new American supercar showed just the 2013 SRT Viper GTS but with the Forza 4 name plastered all over the race-ready 2013 Viper GTS-R headed for the American LeMans Series, we would be shocked to see just one example of the newest Viper on FM4. You would think that since the 2013 Viper is available in base, GTS and GTS-R trim and that the original announcement pertaining to Forza 4 suggested that there would be a whole package for the Viper, there would be more than one 2013 Viper arriving but right now it is unclear whether this free car will be part of a free pack – or if it will just be a single free car to wet our whistle.

Giving the masses one 2013 Viper for free could influence some gamers who are “on the fence” to purchase a Viper Pack that isn’t free but in either case…we expect the new Viper to be awesome in Forza 4. Free car packs for Forza Motorsport 4 are always a good thing so this writer doesn’t care whether it is one car or a variety. However, if there is a more elaborate Viper Pack with more than one car, we can expect that there will also be some new races (likely in Monthly Rivals).
