The pack features some 50 new events and challenges like hill climbs and descents in addition to fresh areas including an "extreme sports snow park." That's in addition to a handful of new rides geared toward the snowy conditions on offer, according to Xbox Wire. Standalone pricing hasn't been announced, but if you pony up for the game's $35 season pass it's included that way. The salt in the wound here is that Microsoft found a way to charge for even more DLC in addition to the $100 "Ultimate Edition" of the game. However, if it's any consolation, there's a $10 discount for anyone who purchases the Ultimate Edition and this first expansion before year's end.
If the promise of virtually whipping donuts with a '65 Ford F-100 Flareside on a frozen lake sounds like your type of party, though, I can't say I blame you for wanting to check it out. After all, there are only so many times you can play through Grand Theft Auto V's snowy intro before it gets old.
