This Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon event started today at 7:30 a.m. PT and closes at 7:30 a.m. PT on January 10th.

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.

At any rate, Winter is back and here we are with a week that showcases Extreme Offroad class vehicles! The Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon January 3-10th 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 January 10th. In addition to the four new #Forzathon events, there are also a number of new Winter Season races (including extra Fortune Island Winter Season races), PR stunts, and two new free vehicles for Car Pass owners!

“Long Tons of Fun” #Forzathon

Check out the complete Challenge list below:

  • Roll Up, Roll Up!: Own and drive any Extreme Offroad class vehicle
  • It’s Super Effective: Bring out the big guns and win 3 Cross Country Events in an Extreme Offroad vehicle
  • Stampede: Throw your weight around and earn 20 Wreckage Skills in an Extreme Offroad vehicle
  • Maverick: Take a running jump and earn a total of 9 Stars from Danger Signs with an Extreme Offroad vehicle

NOTE: These challenges must be done in the order they appear in the list above. 

Roll Up, Roll Up!

Simple start, simply purchase (if you don’t already own one) an Extreme Offroad. This includes icons like the M12S Warthog, the 2016 Jeep Trailcat, and the 2014 Local Motors Rally Fighter. Once purchased, hop into it, and you’ll complete this challenge. Most of these are equipped with snow tires which will definitely help with the rest of the challenges.

It’s Super Effective

Next, pull up the map and filter it so only the Cross Country events show. Win three of these and you’ll be on to your next challenge. Note, you do have to win so set your difficulty accordingly.

Stampede

There are plenty of places to rack up some Wreckage skills so head to your favourite spot and start smashing through trees, fences, railings, and anything else you can find to collect twenty of these.

Maverick

Last, head to your favourite Danger Sign with your (hopefully souped up) Extreme Offroad vehicle and continue to jump it until you have nine stars in total. With any luck and/or skill, this will only take you three jumps.

#Forzathon Shop

The Winter #Forzathon Shop has also been updated. This week, you can snag the 2013 Caterham Superlight R500 Forza Edition for 275 FP and the epic 2010 Morgan Aero Supersports for 150 FP. Also up for grabs is the legendary Halo Warthog Horn for 100 FP and the legendary Snow Boots for 100 FP. As usual, you can pick up Wheelspins for 40 FP or Super Wheelspins for 150 FP each.
