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.
Those of you who’d like to see the full batch of Forzathon
events and challenges currently active in Forza Horizon 3, as well as their
respective prizes, can find all the details about them below.

As for Forza Horizon 3, it’s well worth your time paying a
visit back to the land down under, especially if you have an Xbox One X
console where you can enjoy
Australia in Native 4K resolution with a host of graphical upgrades over
the base Xbox One version, including an extended draw distance, improved levels
of detail, better shadow and reflection quality, and more. For additional
details and our hands-on impressions, don’t miss our
review of the Xbox One X Enhanced version of Forza Horizon 3.
Fancy a trip back to Colorado instead? The Xbox 360 classic Forza
Horizon is also enhanced for Xbox One X, and despite being almost six years
old, it holds up remarkably well in 4K resolution on Microsoft’s latest machine.
In fact, we enjoyed it so much, we also reviewed that one as well with an in-depth analysis
of how it looks on the Xbox One X.
