This Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon event started today, May 9th, at 7:30 a.m. PT and closes at 7:30 a.m. PT on May 16th.

Here we are with the Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon May 9-16th event (on time this week!). As usual, you can earn an extra 100 (or 200 with the VIP house) #Forzathon Points, this time in the funky 2014 Morgan 3 Wheeler! This Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon event started today, May 9th, at 7:30 a.m. PT and closes at 7:30 a.m. PT on May 16th. In addition to the new #Forzathon events, there are also a number of new seasonal races (including extra Fortune Island Seasonal races) and PR stunts.

Forza Horizon 4 has been out for some time now with its updated #Forzathon format. Playground Games and Turn 10 Studios have also made it easier to track the weekly events with the new Festival Playlist. Also, don’t forget about the new Achievements, many of which are #Forzathon related. This week also saw the Series 9 Update which brought more anti-griefing measures, a new Horizon Business located in Bamburgh village, Custom Adventure online mode, another Showcase Remix, and a bunch of cross-platform fixes.

If you haven’t purchased the game yet, you can do so from the button below or play it through the Xbox Game Pass.

Festival Playlist/Summer Season

It’s summer again — at least in the game — and there are new rewards for completing both the Festival Playlist and the Horizon Spring Season. For the Playlist, once you complete 50% over the next four seasons, you’ll snag the Quartz Regalia. Complete 80% of the seasonal objectives, you’ll snag the Bone Shaker. As for the Horizon Summer Season, 50% completion will snag you the  Morris Traveller while 80% (reduced from 100% in a recent patch) completion — tasks, races, PR Stunts, Season Events, and Trials on Great Britain (not Fortune Island) — will net you the VW Type 2 Forze Edition van.

“Old School Cool” #Forzathon

Check out the complete Challenge list in the order it appears below:

  • Worcestershire’s Finest: Own and drive the 2014 Morgan 3 Wheeler.
  • Love Triangle: First question, can it drift? Find out by earning a total of 6 stars from Drift Zones with your Morgan 3 Wheeler.
  • Attention Seeker: Pass your opponents while drifting in your Morgan 3 Wheeler to earn a Showoff Skill.
  • Is It A Bike? Is It A Car?: Filter through traffic and earn 5 Threading the Needle Skills in your Morgan 3 Wheeler.

Daily #Forzathon challenges for this week include:

  • HMB: Earn 2 stars in total from Danger Signs
  • Running the Gauntlet: Filter through traffic to earn 2 Threading the Needle Skills
  • Toodle-Pip: Closely overtake while racing to earn 3 Ultimate Pass Skills

Worcestershire’s Finest

To start, simply purchase the 2014 Morgan 3 Wheeler for 50,000 Credits if you don’t already own one. Once you’ve done so, hop in and move on to the next task for the week.

Love Triangle

Head over to your favourite Drift Zones and get 6 stars total… hopefully, it only takes you two perfect runs. Once you’ve earned six stars, you’ll be ready for the next task.

Attention Seeker

You’ll need to hop into a race for this one. Fortunately, you only need one Showoff Skill so when you get a chance, drift around a corner and pass an opponent or three to finish up this challenge.

Is It A Bike? Is It A Car?

Head over to the freeway and dodge traffic in quick succession. Do this 5 times, earning Threading the Needle Skills, and you’ll complete this week’s weekly #Forzathon challenges, earning your 100 or 200 FP. If you do the previous three challenges today (or tomorrow), you can double up on Friday’s “Running the Gauntlet” Daily Challenge as well with this one.

Summer #Forzathon Shop

The Spring #Forzathon Shop has also been updated. This week, you can snag the 2016 Aston Martin Vulcan Forza Edition for 650 FP and the Rare 2005 Lotus Elise 111S for 650 FP. Also up for grabs are the Rare Steam Boat Car Horn and the Epic Timeless Sweater clothing. As usual, you can pick up Wheelspins for 35 FP or Super Wheelspins for 135 FP each (down 5 and 15 FP respectively).
