As you probably know by now, #Forzathon has changed pretty dramatically in the latest iteration of the game. Check out our Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon primer to make sense of the new #Forzathon format if you’re not already familiar with it.
Not only does today mark the arrival of a new Spring #Forzathon but it also marks the arrival of the first DLC Expansion: “Fortune Island.” The new expansion is available for players who own Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate Edition, the Ultimate Add-Ons Bundle, or the Expansion Bundle.
Travel to Fortune Island and experience the most treacherous expansion ever seen in the Forza Horizon series. Fortune Island is full of extreme terrain just begging to be explored in the vehicle of your choice. Navigate the sheer cliffside roads of Laufey’s Throne at speeds that are only limited by your courage. Get slideways through a massive drift zone on the Needle Climb – the largest paved mountain switchback road in Forza Horizon history. From the forests of Oldlarch Forest to the mysterious sunken village of Fenholm, Fortune Island rewards the curious and the brave alike.Forzamotorsport.net
So if you own the DLC, you can access it on the southeast corner edge of the map along the coast.
At any rate, Spring is back and here we are with a week that showcases RJ Anderson’s 2016 37 Polaris RZR-Rockstar Energy Pro 2 Truck! The Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon December 13-20th event gives you a chance to earn an extra 100 (or 200 with the VIP house) #Forzathon Points. This Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon event started today at 7:30 a.m. PT and closes at 7:30 a.m. PT on December 20th. In addition to the four new #Forzathon events, there are also a number of new Spring Season races, PR stunts, and two new free vehicles for Car Pass owners!
