I think that there won't be unicorns in Horizon 2. Also, use the "What We Know So Far" thread stickied on this subforum for more info.

"Sadly, the "Unicorn" – rare and hard to obtain – cars of the original Forza Horizon won't be making a return, but Fulton insists that he and his team are still firm believers in giving dedicated community members their own little perks.

While there are still a couple unicorn cars I'm looking for (1 each in Horizon1 and FM4), I really am glad to see unicorn cars go. It seems like the existence of unicorns causes more problems and community aggravation and bad feelings than it's worth. Also, the board mods have to field a steady stream of threads in the discussion forums from posters wanting unicorns even though there are typically a dozen similar topics on the front page of the board. While there are some chances to get unicorns, some avenues are extremely difficult to impossible, such as the livery contests, as the established painters have a stranglehold on those, and the photo contests where it's really luck of the draw. I will enjoy playing for the unique paints that are to come and hope there will be some fun contests and prizes that do not involve unicorns.

I don't think that statement automatically means that Forza Rewards will now include cars. It wouldn't surprise me if a month or two do include cars at the launch of FH2, but what he's saying sounds to me like the gift cars Robin has painted and distributed to VIPs and sometimes to everyone (holiday, etc). But we do know that the level up award wheel from FH1 is back with FH2, which will provide a random chance of cars or credits within the game. We'll have to see if he is referring to any additional awards.

I hated the very concept of unicorn cars. If the car's in the game, it should be available to anyone and everyone who bought a copy, regardless of driving skill, painting ability, or photographic artistry.

I'm glad they're gone.

You might want to go back and read through the previous posts. The exclusion of unicorns is not as much a victory for "casuals" as it is in the best interest of the game and franchise. If there were to be unicorns again, there should be some way within the game of obtaining them that is eventually possible for everyone should they put the time in (reaching a certain level, completing a circuit a number of times, number of wins, number of miles in a certain car, etc.). I was not around for the awarding of unicorns for completing certain hotlap challenges which aren't offered anymore, but hotlapping in itself is problematic. The top players would always get the cars whereas someone like me who might put in a ton of time would never be able to attain a top time.

The problem is, people repeatedly post either wanting to know where to get them or wanting them gifted which ain't gonna happen. The three ways to get unicorns now are below, and even so is not guaranteed.

The first way: Photo Contests... Photo contests are very hard to win because of the volume of entries and the fact that all entries go into a massive pool for voting or selection. Even if you have a great photo, the chances of it being selected are remote.

The second way: Livery Contests.... Let's be realistic about this one. The established painters are so far above everyone else, that the chances of placing are slim to none. I've entered before, but my paints are no where near as detailed as the pros. Some painters even have extra designs kicking around that they can use to throw into the contests and win themselves a few extra unicorns.

The third way: Forum participation... This is the best current chance at unicorn cars. To participate in every news thread you can post to is your best bet. I'm finding the success rate to be about one unicorn in a month and half's posting time, which isn't too bad.

you guys must not put enough effort into the game then (I got 5 out of the 7 unicorn cars in forza horizon--although FM4 I only have 2 or 3 because I dont have the DLC's for the FE edition)
but a car that is not a unicorn can easily beat a unicorn car

You're absolutely right though, a unicorn car does not give any real competitive advantage, nor should it. Unicorns are just meant to be rarer cars than others. I'm relatively sure though, that you don't need DLCs for any of the unicorn cars in FM4. Unfortunately, I came onto the FM4/FH scene recently and missed all the easy unicorn opportunities when the games were new (was primarily a PC gamer, but now longer work hours make using a 360 after work easier than setting up my laptop).

I think I was misunderstood. I've won unicorns myself, and never said they give an unfair advantage (LB cars do that, but only some of them).

I just think it's wrong.

I bid a fond farewell to unicorns, glad they're gone. I've won a few of them in online competitions with relative ease, but the ONE I really wanted eluded me for so dang long because T10 would hold a vote on which car got gifted, rather than let the individual choose their rewarded unicorn. The one I wanted was the 69 SS Camaro in FM4, I participated in a number of events in which I won a unicorn; but couldn't get the one I wanted because everyone else wanted something else.

I finally got it due to dumb luck by making a half right guess in a DLC clue thread, kinda robbed me of the sense of accomplishment.

And I had absolutely no interest in any of the unicorns in Horizon.

Sadly!!...I think Unicorns are the worst game feature ever created, I think EVERYBODY should be able to get ALL the vehicles in a game, yes they could be free for doing certain things, but if you don't want to do that - or more importantly miss the window to get them - then you should be able to buy them.
