Contests, Sweepstakes, and in-game Gift Opportunities for Forza Horizon 3


This thread will be updated to compile a list of opportunities to collect prizes and gifts from FH3-related contests and sweepstakes.

Typical prizes might be: a copy of the game, DLC, Xbox One console, merchandise, or in-game gifts. Most of the information here will pulled from official threads in the Community Events forum or News section of FM.net or www.twitter.com/Forzamotorsport. See also my calendar of contests and FH3-related events and articles at bit.ly/ForzaCalendars.

Disclaimer: Be sure to click the links provided in each post and read the all Official Rules and Terms provided by the contest promoter. Event types may be skill based or random selection, and eligibility may be restricted to certain states or countries. In-game gifts may require Xbox Live Gold, and FH3 VIP membership. Deadlines may be local time or based on a time zone other than your own. I am only listing the opportunities here for quick reference; the responsibility is on the entrant to comply with and meet all eligibility and entry requirements.


How to retrieve in-game gifts
Gift cars and credits are sent via message to your in-game Message Center. You must download the gifts in order for them to be added to your account. Daily payouts from shared tuning/design files and Drivatar activity are automatically added to your credit count.


How to Redeem codes for the Xbox One:
Xbox Support provides this guide for redeeming codes (game DLC, Xbox Live Gold Membership, or Xbox Store Gift Cards). Codes contain 25 characters of mixed numbers and letters.



Gift / award car history


ForzaRC participation award cars have not been sent yet and there's been no announcement about an estimated date.

Loyalty Rewards and Forza Rewards in FH3

Forums: Loyalty and Forza Rewards discussion thread
Announcement: Forza Horizon 3 Loyalty Rewards - June 13, 2016

Players can start FH3 with gift cars based on their previous experience with Forza games. These gift cars are not DLC models; if you do not meet the criteria before starting the game you will still be able to access the models in game like other cars. This reward should be effective no matter when you start the game. The rewards may not appear if you start FH3 first and then play FM6 or FH2 for the first time later.

FM6/FH2 Gameplay Rewards
If you've played FM6 or FH2, you will receive a corresponding gift car. If you've played both, you'll receive both cars:
  • 2017 Ford Raptor (FM6 players)
  • 2014 Local Motors Rally Fighter (FH2 players)

FM6/FH2 VIP Rewards
Owners of the FM6 VIP membership or the FH2 VIP membership will receive:
  • 2015 Koenigsegg One:1

There appears to be no garage count reward as seen with FM6.

Forza Rewards at launch
Based on your Forza Rewards Tier when you launch the game, you'll receive up to nine cars gifted for use in your game garage. If you're at least Tier 2 you'll receive the Honda; if you're Tier 3 you'll receive the Honda and Nissan, etc. These car models are not DLC; you'll be able to collect them in game like any other car in the roster (using credits etc) if you have not reached the reward Tier by the time you start playing.
  • Tier 2: 2005 Honda NSX-R
  • Tier 3: 2003 Nissan Fairlady Z
  • Tier 4: 2016 Audi V10 plus
  • Tier 5: 2012 BMW M5
  • Tier 6: 2009 Ferrari 458 Italia
  • Tier 7: 2013 SRT Viper GTS
  • Tier 8: 2013 McLaren P1
  • Tier 9: 2014 Lamborghini Hurácan LP 610-4
  • Tier 10: 2017 Ford GT



Forza Rewards Overview
Forza Rewards is a loyalty program that tracks your activity across the history of Forza games. By driving, purchasing DLC, unlocking Achievements and performing other tasks in each game, you earn cumulative points toward your Forza Rewards Tier. The higher your Tier, the more rewards you can receive every reward window (currently weekly). Often these rewards will be credits that will help you afford more cars. Players redeem rewards for each window via the Rewards section of this website (top menu bar) or the Forza Hub app for Windows 10 or the Xbox console (or an in-game menu). See the Forza Rewards FAQ thread for more information. Since July 2015 the top tier has been 9:

The Loyalty Rewards announcement lists ten tiers so look for an announcement about an update to Forza Rewards over the summer.

Just a quick question mste, are some of these comps etc for US citizens only, or open to the whole gaming world?

I see that the current auction is only available for US and UK bidders. Is that correct mate.?

I'll be posted everything I come across. Some may be in-game gifts which could require Xbox Live Gold and VIP membership. Retail value prizes may have regional/age restrictions. I'll try to note eligibility when it is limited, but as I wrote in the first post, it's up to readers to be sure they've read the official rules; I'm just providing a summary here as a heads up.

Great stuff mate, might even get me finally making an appearance online. As being a staunch non-online player, I might think about switching.

Only for the proper competiveness of the event.

Please help flow these things into Forza Motorsports so that we have a decent chance if acquiring some of those unobtainable a Unicorn cars.
