'Tis the season to be jolly in the world of Forza. With Christmas now only a few short days away, developer Turn 10 Studios has decided to help players celebrate the festive season by gifting players with Santa suits in both Forza Motorsport 7 and Forza Horizon 4.
In Forza Motorsport 7, the Saint Nick Driver Gear outfit can be downloaded for free via your in-game Message Center. There’s also a Gingerbread Man Driver Gear suit available to unlock from the latest batch of Forzathon events until the first week of January 2019.
Meanwhile, the Santa Suit in Forza Horizon 4 has been unlocked for all players under the Customize Character menu. This was originally meant to be exclusive to this week’s seasonal Trial event, but developers Turn 10 Studios and Playground Games has decided to reward the outfit to everyone. You can also pair it with the all-new Santa Hat and Santa’s Tash, both of which can be acquired from the Forzathon Shop until Thursday, December 27th.
However, the festive fun doesn’t end there. The Specialty Dealer is currently offering a selection of free rides from the 1990s and 2000s in Forza Motorsport 7. These include the rare 1995 BMW 850CSi Forza Edition, as well as the 2005 TVR Sagaris, the 2008 Aston Martin DBS and the 1991 Mazda #55 787B. Get them at no cost from the Specialty Dealer until the end of the month to not only add some sweet rides to your Forza Motorsport 7 garage, but to also boost your Car Collection score.
Remember, you can also compete in the December Bounty Hunter
Rivals event on Forza Motorsport 7. This one celebrates the festive season as you get behind-the-wheel of the 2017 Acura NSX on Catalunya GP. Rather than beating specific targets however, this one is all about your overall leaderboard percentile. The faster your time, the higher your leaderboard position will be, and the more rewards you’ll receive in Forza Motorsport 7 following the event’s closure in January.
And with that, we draw an incredible year of Forza to a close. 2018 has undeniably been the biggest years in the history of the Forza franchise. From the unforgettable launch of Forza Horizon 4 at the Goodwood Estate to continuous post-release support for Forza Motorsport 7 and the biggest season yet in the Forza Racing Championship esports series, the past 12 months have been truly incredible – and you can relive it all today in the 2018 Forza Year in Review on the official Forza Motorsport website. Go check it out and reminisce the year gone by!
In addition, be sure to join Turn 10’s Community Manager Brian Ekberg for the annual New Year’s Eve livestream on Monday, December 31st over on the official Forza Mixer and Twitch channels. It will begin at 9pm Pacific and continue straight into 2019 as Forza counts down the New Year in high-speed fashion on both Forza Motorsport 7 and Forza Horizon 4.
This will most likely be our last Forza story of the year, but we’ll be back with even more in 2019! From the introduction of Forza Race Regulations in Forza Motorsport 7 to the second eagerly-awaited expansion for Forza Horizon 4 and an all-new season of Forza Racing Championship action to follow, there will be much to discuss and write about – so be sure to join us for the ride! Until then, we’ll see you either out on the track or driving around beautiful, historic Britain. Thanks to all our readers for the support over the last 12 months – it has been truly incredible, and we can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
