Gaming / PC / Xbox
Forza-Horizon-4-January-17

This Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon event started today at 7:30 a.m. PT and closes at 7:30 a.m. PT on January 24th.

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, Summer is back (even though it’s definitely winter outside!) and here we are with a week that showcases Modern Rally class vehicles! The Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon January 17-24th event gives you a chance to earn an extra 100 (or 200 with the VIP house) #Forzathon Points in a Modern Rally car! This Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon event started today at 7:30 a.m. PT and closes at 7:30 a.m. PT on January 24th. In addition to the four new #Forzathon events, there are also a number of new Summer Season races (including extra Fortune Island Summer Season races), PR stunts, and two new free vehicles for Car Pass owners!

“A New Generation” #Forzathon

Check out the complete Challenge list below:

  • Nimble As a Deer: Own and drive any Modern Rally car
  • It’s the Smell: Tune and tweak your Modern Rally car to reach a top speed of 185 mph (298 km/h)
  • Road Closed: Time to put that speed to the test! Earn a total of 15 stars from Danger Signs with your Modern Rally car
  • 1,000 Corners: Hop in your Modern Rally car and use it to achieve a podium finish in a Dirt Racing Series event at The Gauntlet

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

Nimble As a Deer

Simple start, simply purchase (if you don’t already own one) any Modern Rally car. This includes options like the 2003 Ford Focus RS, a few models of the Subaru Impreza WRX STI, and the MITSUBISHI!!! (yes, Mitsubishis were added back earlier this week after not being in the game initially) Lancer Evolution. I’d recommend souping it up a bit, at least to the top of the whatever class is available which can be done with the Auto Upgrade option. Next, find an S1 or S2 tune in the Tune shop (if need be) as you’ll need it for the next challenge.

It’s the Smell

Now you see why we upgraded the tune on your car? Head to the freeway and race up to a speed of 185 mph (298 km/h) in your Modern Rally car to continue.

Road Closed

This one shouldn’t be too difficult. Just find your favourite Danger Sign zone and jump it until you get 15 stars. Hopefully it’ll only take you 5 perfect jumps.

1,000 Corners

Finally, locate The Gauntlet on your map (it’s located on the east coast by the Bamburgh Castle) and enter the race. Finish in the top three and you’ll complete this week’s challenge set and earn your extra FP.

#Forzathon Shop

The Summer #Forzathon Shop has also been updated. This week, you can snag the 2016 Aston Martin Vulcan Forza Edition for 400 FP and the rare 2013 Cadillac XTS Limousine for 500 FP(?!?!?!). Also up for grabs is the epic Ice Cream Van Car Horn for 75 FP and the legendary Shark Wellies boots for 100 FP. As usual, you can pick up Wheelspins for 40 FP or Super Wheelspins for 150 FP each.
