Microsoft announced today that Forza Horizon 3 has officially gone gold, meaning the game is ready for physical copies to be manufactured and the digital release to be set up.

This announcement comes with a few updates, including Windows 10 PC specs, the full list of Xbox Live achievements, language localization, and a new vehicle.

The Warthog from the Halo universe will be available in Forza Horizon 3. The military transport is officially called the 2553 AMG Transport Dynamics M12S Warthog CTS. Unlike the military vehicle from Halo, this Warthog doesn’t have a turret. However, it does have a 720 bhp turbo V8 engine, making it much faster than its military counterpart. The Warthog also has the best suspension of any car in Forza Horizon 3.

The Warthog will be available at launch and will be sent as a free download to anyone who has played either Halo 5: Guardian or Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Xbox One. Players who are eligible will receive download codes via an Xbox Live message, and codes will be sent out during the week of September 5. Those who haven’t played an Xbox One Halo game can earn the Warthog through a special #Forzathon event coming in October.

Here are the recommended PC specs for Windows 10:

  • CPU: i7 3820 @ 3.6GHz
  • GPU: NVIDIA GTX 970 or NVIDIA GTX 1060, AMD R9 290X or AMD RX 480
  • VRAM: 4GB
  • RAM: 12GB
  • Hard Drive Type: 55 GB
  • Resolution: 1920 x 1080
  • Windows Version: Windows Anniversary Edition 64-bit 14393.101
