Forza Horizon 3 Publishes Multiple Forzathon Events Available Through May 11th

Forza Horizon 3 has activated several new Forzathon events in-game for players to complete. In fact, due to a configuration error when issuing this week’s batch of events, the team at Turn 10 Studios unintentionally published a number of Forzathon events in Forza Horizon 3 that were originally scheduled to be enabled over the next several months.

In total, there were 50 challenges enabled – spread across 13 different Forzathon events, and these can be found in the Xbox Live Achievements list for Forza Horizon 3. As well as the usual slate of XP, Credits and Wheelspins available, there’s also a total of 13 cars that can be unlocked, including the Bentley Continental Supersports, the Nissan GT-R Horizon Edition, the Nissan Silvia K's S14, and the #7 M-Sport Bentley GT3 race car.

Per the latest Forza Motorsport Week in Review, these events will conclude on Friday, May 11th. On this date, a new batch of Forzathon events will be published “similar in scope” to those currently activated in terms of naming and rewards. These events will roll out along the originally intended schedule. However, should you have unlocked any of the Forzathon events currently activated, you won’t lose your rewards or Achievements, and you’ll still have access to the new events, rewards, and achievements as they roll out.

So, if you’ve noticed yourself unlocking a lot of Forzathon Achievements in Forza Horizon 3 over the past couple of days, well first you’re not alone, and secondly, you now know why this has been happening. Obviously, it’s no issue to the player or user, as if anything, it’s just an opportunity to rake in credits, wheelspins, and XP rewards – as well as a chance to earn some exclusive cars you may have missed out on before.

I logged into Forza Horizon 3 this morning and unlocked over 20 Forzathon achievements within an hour of game time with little to no effort required on my side, so if you fancy earning some bonus rewards and seeing plenty of Achievements pop up, it’s well worth your time logging into the game and playing for a few hours before all these events expire on May 11th.
