Playground Games is keeping the Forzathon events coming for its open-world Forza spin-off. Players will have regularly-scheduled challenges all the way into February 2018, according to a new set of Xbox achievements.
While Forza Motorsport 7 may be the shiny new model in the spotlight, the 2016 title remains a big draw for racing fans. Its more casual approach gives it a wider appeal — especially with additions like the Hot Wheels expansion.
First up, we should probably cover this week’s challenges.
Forzathon “Grand Touring”
- Hittin’ Heavy – Win a Playground game in a Sports Utility Hero to earn 35,000 XP and the Porsche Macan Turbo
- Living Sideways – Perform 20 Drift Skills to win 3 Wheelspins
- Packaged Performance – Complete a Championship in a GT or Super GT car to win the Subaru BRZ HE
- Moonlit Drive – Complete a Street Race to win 55,000 CR
“Hittin’ Heavy” will be the tough one; winning a Playground game can prove challenging enough on its own, nevermind in an SUV. The Macan’s been up for grabs before, though. Plus, instead of the previous weekend-long events, FH3’s Forzathon events are now seven-day affairs.
The Next Three Months
After that, Playground Games has lined up events on a weekly basis right up to Groundhog Day. If you’re combing through the list for new additions, don’t: all the prize cars have shown up before, one way or another. If you missed them the first go-round, and don’t want to deal with the Auction House, these will be your best shot.
Of note are the weeks that only have three challenges listed instead of the default four. While it doesn’t happen often, Forzathon has occasionally included sales on certain makes and models. If we had to guess, that’s what’s happening on these weeks.
You can find the full list below. As always, pop your head into GTPlanet’s dedicated Forza Horizon 3 section for in-depth discussion on the game, or to find people to achieve multiplayer challenges with.
