"Forza Horizon 3 will include new weekly challenges dubbed Forzathon, Playground Games creative director Ralph Fulton told Polygon today at Gamescom.

The feature will include weekly, themed competitions where players can win prizes not available in other parts of the game. Challenges start in October, just after the game's Sept. 27 launch on PC and Xbox One.

Of note is the event Oct. 14, when players can win a Nissan Silvia S14, and an unannounced event Oct. 28-30. News on that event is still incoming, though Fulton said players will be able to win and drive a vehicle that "has never been drivable in Forza before, which you will not believe."

The Forzathon challenges are part of Playground Games' commitment to players beyond the game's launch date, Fulton said.

"It's not just about the game that we ship on day one," Fulton said. "It's about the game that we're adding to."

Will there be any way to get the cars after the event (like in the Auction House) or are they going to be like Unicorns? Since I'm going to miss the first competitions because I won't get the game until Christmas.

I'm going to hazard a guess at it being highly unlikely, as they'll be unicorns.

Not too pleased that they're doing them for H3..

IGN's article provides some additional detail:

http://www.ign.com/articles/2016/08/17/gamescom-2016-forza-horizon-3-introducing-new-weekly-challenge-feature-forzathon

Quote:
Speaking to IGN at Gamescom today, Playground Games creative director Ralph Fulton explained that the game will include a calendar of challenges at least a month in advance. Currently, rewards include a comedy horn pack and a Nissan Silvia S14 unlock.


Quote:
Forzathon competitions can be single-day or multi-day, and many of the rewards offered will be available only through completion of the challenge (although Fulton was keen to stress that popular rewards would be re-used in multiple events).

"[The challenges] might be really simple," explained Fulton, "or they might be really fiendish."

A 'Comedy horn pack'?

So clown horns, police sirens, and **** sounds? That would be wonderful.

I wonder what they mean by "unlock", as in, we'll unlock the car to buy as many times we want? If so that isn't too bad as opposed of the conventional one-off unicorns.
Still pretty meh, I wish unicorns would be gone all along.

Exactly what I thought when I read it, hopefully it's not badly worded and that's true.

My guess would be the same as unicorns. That's how they've done it since day dot :)

Would be nice. Be even nicer to have it in the base game though.

Silvia S14 looks like an amazing car, and I could always use more horns. 😂
