Turn 10 Studios has added a new Forzathon
event to Forza
Motorsport 7. There’s currently one available in-game as of writing, but two
more are currently showing up in the Xbox Live Achievements list for the game,
suggesting that additional events are on the way.
The ‘Forza World Tour Part 2’ event sees players race across
Bathurst, Dubai, and Rio de Janerio in a quest to unlock the classic 1932 Ford
De Luxe Five-Window Coupe.
Meanwhile, in Forza Horizon 3, the current Forzathon is
appropriately named ‘Heritage of Speed,’ and it’s offering the 2017 Ford GT
Looking ahead, the Achievements list for Forza Motorsport 7
shows two more Forzathon events that are most likely coming soon – ‘To the
Slopes!’ and ‘Creative Corner.’ The first of these offers the 1974 Lancia
Stratos HF Stradale, whilst the latter is offering the Motion Capture Driver
You can find the breakdown for each Forzathon event below.
Prize: 1932 Ford De Luxe Five-Window Coupe
Date: January 23rd – February 9th (Extended to February 28th)
This event is extremely straightforward. Simply head to
Bathurst for a few laps in your favourite Aussie car – a V8 Supercar from
Holden being my first choice, and drive for 5 miles. You’ll then need a fast
car for Dubai to hit 180mph – a LaFerrari or Koenigsegg One:1 should do the
trick. Then by achieving a podium finish on Rio de Janeiro, you’ll have all
three challenges in the bag, and the 1932 Ford De Luxe Five-Window Coupe will
As usual, the events may require an additional attempt
before they’re tracked in-game, or you can simply load up another race event to
trigger it. Free Play is always your best bet for Forzathon events, and that doesn’t
change. You can customize the number of Drivatars in each event and the cars
you drive to your liking, so feel free to take whatever you desire for these
events – just make sure it’s fast enough to beat each of the challenges available!
Date: January 26th – February 2nd
With the release of the Xbox
One X Enhanced version of Forza Horizon 3, many have returned to the Australian
Outback once more, so I figured it was worth including the Forza Horizon 3
challenges available over the next week. These are all about experiencing the
birth of a Le Mans legacy, and whilst the Ford MKII GT40 costs 3,300,000 Credits
from the Autoshow, it deserves to be in everyone’s garage.
Overall, the challenges here are straightforward enough,
though the 3 Playground Games in the 2017 Ford GT Horizon Edition will likely
take the longest unless you do 1-minute rounds with your friends in a Private
online session. Similarly, the Championship can be customized using Horizon
Blueprint to three short one-lap events, also knocking out the Race event in a
Ford in the process.
Prize: 1974 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale
Date: January 23rd – February 28th
Like the other Forzathon events in Forza Motorsport 7, this
one should be easily doable in Free Play. Simply set the game mode to ‘Drift’ and
slide your way towards 10,000 points in a single lap on the Bernese Alps
Festival Circuit Reverse, before returning to that same location for 3 laps on
the Bernese Alps Club Circuit. You’ll be staying on the Alps for a racing victory
in a Modern Off-Roader Division Car on the full circuit to win yourself the 1974
Lancia Stratos HF Stradale.
Prize: Motion Capture Driver Gear
This Forzathon event has to be the easiest and shortest one
yet in Forza Motorsport 7! Simply change the colour on any car you desire or
add a decal to complete the first challenge. Then as you load into a race event,
change your Driver Gear suit, and simply finish the race in any car and track
combo that you desire and the Motion Capture Driver Gear suit will be yours.
These are all the Forzathon events available over the next
few weeks in Forza Motorsport 7. Remember, Turn 10 can run multiple Forzathon
events and challenges at once, and can even add new ones and swap out older
Not only does this allow players far more time to complete
the challenges and earn the prizes available, but it also means that multiple
instances of Forzathon can be active at once within the event period, which is
a stark contrast to Forza Horizon 3, where only one Forzathon event with either
three challenges and one deal or four total challenges could be available at
once, usually over the course of a weekend, a full week, or sometimes even
one-day for special occasions.
Given that Turn 10 can add new Forzathon events to Forza
Motorsport 7 whenever they desire, it means players can always look forward to
the addition of new challenges and prizes over the coming weeks and months.
Plus, the fact that players have had more than two weeks to complete each event
so far is a huge bonus. Not to mention the neat little progress bar for each
event and challenge as well.
