With the June Content
Update for Forza Motorsport 7, developer Turn 10 Studios introduced a new,
experience that’s built directly into the game. This new system is configured
by the developer itself and is no longer constrained to Xbox Live services.
Whilst this means you’ll no longer receive Achievements for beating these limited-time
in-game events, players will benefit by more varied challenges with better
prizes on a more frequent schedule.
Initially, Turn 10 will host three Forzathon events in Forza
Motorsport 7 on a weekly basis. Each individual week will feature one 1-step,
one 2-step, and one 3-step Forzathon event to beat. You can monitor your
progress from within the game as you finish challenges and make your way
through each of the different events available.
The first batch of these new-styled, revamped Forzathon events
are now live in Forza Motorsport 7 and offer three unique rewards for players
to unlock – the 2008 Ferrari California, the 1971 Chevrolet Vega GT, and the ‘Skullfulage’
Driver Gear outfit. Below, you can find a breakdown of the challenges with each
event and their associated rewards.
The event is the easiest of the trio. Simply head into Free
Play and select the Ford vehicle of your liking. Complete any race event on any
track you desire to beat this challenge and unlock the ‘Skullfulage’ Driver
Gear suit. If you want to get this one done quickly, you can even set the race
to be simply one-lap!
The best way to beat this event is to head to Mazda Raceway
Laguna Seca in any Forza GT division race car of your choosing for a quick,
one-lap event. Ensure you win the race if Drivatar opponents are enabled. Then
restart that same event and set it to three laps. After you’ve completed the
second run, you’ll have beaten both challenges in subsequent order to unlock
the classic 1971 Chevrolet Vega GT.
This Forzathon event is the last of the bunch this week and
will obviously require the most time of the three – but that’s still not too
much of a time commitment either! Simply head to the Bernese Alps Club Circuit
in a 2015 McLaren P1 GTR hypercar and win a quick one-lap race before completing
another race at Road Atlanta’s Club Circuit in a 2014 Lamborghini Huracan LP
Lastly, you’ll need to complete four laps of the Mugello Club Circuit in
a Forza Touring Division Car. Once you’ve completed all three challenges in
sequence order, the 2008 Ferrari California will be yours.
Once you start to progress through each of the individual
Forzathon events available this week, you’ll most likely notice the new in-game
notification that highlights whether you’ve progressed in an event or completed
it. It’s a neat addition and updates immediately, showcasing whether you’ve
made any contributions to an active Forzathon event after you finish a race event.
Because these revamped Forzathon events update immediately,
there’s no need to worry about challenge progression going untracked or having
to restart events or reload track locations to force the game to count your progress.
It’s all instantly tracked and updated, and it means you can complete each of
the different events at ease. Claiming your rewards from Forzathon after you’ve
beaten a challenge is as easy as navigating to the Forzathon submenu within
Forza Motorsport 7.
So, there you have it – the first batch of all-new, weekly
Forzathon events in Forza Motorsport 7. A fresh start for these community engagement
challenges. As usual, there’s plenty more in-game events that are currently
live and well-worth checking out, including the ForzaRC John
Hindhaugh Le Mans Challenge, as well as the current
Leagues series and June
Rivals events. Next week, fans can look forward to three new Forzathon
events featuring the 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT S, the 1957 Porsche 356A Speedster
and the ‘Finish First’ Driver Gear outfit as rewards.
