    Firstly buy it here:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Forza-Horizon-Rally-Expansion-Download/dp/B01LDPT5QA

    Then activate the code.

    Find the main Forza Horizon icon on your Xbox One dash, right click, manage game, ready to install and away you go.

    As the pack has been de-listed, buying a code is the only way to get it. I assume when the codes are done, they are done.

    Playing it now in lovely 4k BC and it's very nice :)

    No one interested in grabbing this before the keys are all gone?

    The rallying has a brilliant feel and the tracks are really well designed. No dynamic weather or time of day however. Once the keys are gone you may never have a chance to play this again so just giving fair warning (also it's in 4k on the one X)!

    It's a bit pricey, and I'm still waiting on the fix they promised. I bought it months before it was de-listed and it didn't work, so they promised a fix. It hasn't happened so far, and at this point it's fairly safe to say they never will fix it now, so there's no way I'm giving them more money for the same thing a second time.

    Edit: Looking at the official forums, it might actually be fixed now, and has been for a while. My apologies to the developer and publisher for not having kept up-to-date.

    Season Pass owners downloading the Rally Expansion didn't work. It'd try and contact the servers, which were supposed to authenticate that you had the Season Pass and add the expansion to your downloads, but the server responsible for that didn't work for a good few weeks before it was officially de-listed. This meant people that wanted to downloaded before it was de-listed couldn't do so.

    The Season Pass also didn't directly give access to any of the other vehicle content due to the same issue, but there was a workaround for that part using the Xbox Live Marketplace website. This workaround didn't work for the expansion, though. It had to contact that content server to verify the Season Pass. If you tried to just download the Rally Expansion, it'd try and charge you separately.

    From the forum, I assume they just fixed that server, but I'll have to wait until I get home to confirm.

    It works! Was a bit of a faff, as selecting Horizon Rally displayed a different message about it being available on December 18th, but when I clicked download inside the in-game Marketplace on the car you get with the expansion, it triggered the expansion download.

    I wouldn't even have thought to check after all this time, so thanks for the reminder Captain Toad :)

    Did they ever turn Rivals mode back on in FH1?
