You can find summaries of major announcements in the world of Forza in the Week in Review, published every Friday at and linked at the official page. For the most up to date announcements, server alerts, etc make sure you're following and also for Forza Racing Championship News.

The official Forzamotorsport YouTube channel has video announcements and event recaps. You can find all major announcements listed in the FH3 spreadsheet link at and and third-party articles in the News links about FH3 thread.

Also make sure to check for any current service interruptions, and Xbox Wire at for device and Xbox Live feature announcements that may affect the way you play Forza.

Forza has two regular weekly livestreams on its official (formerly Beam) and channels. In each stream you'll see a Turn 10 community team member show off current gameplay, maybe mention some recent news (but look to for actual announcements), and play multiplayer with viewers. You have to be registered with Twitch and Beam in order to participate in the chat during the stream.

Tuesdays from 1pm to 3pm Pacific time are typically hosted by John Schommer (gt: Johniwanna). He tends to take on Rivals events (and offroad events in Forza Horizon games when they're current) and shows off the most recent cars from DLC packs in addition to multiplayer. John has also given away Forza branded items (posters, tshirts, etc) to a lucky chat member in previous streams.

Fridays from 3pm to 5pm Pacific time are typically hosted by Brian Ekberg (gt: Mechberg). He tends to prefer multiplayer circuit races, shows off monthly gift cars, and will give an overview of the Week in Review and upcoming events. Lately he's been ending the stream with a lap of the full Nurburgring in a randomly chosen car in stock form for everyone. Recent cars used: El Camino, Audi #2 R15++, Mercedes racing truck, BMW Isetta, Shelby Cobra 427, Ford GT '17, Chevy Nova '66, Lotus Exige S, Hyundai Veloster, Chevy Chevelle, Dodge Super Bee, NASCAR, BAC Mono, V8 Supercars.

Javier Hernandez (gt: Ayo Jube) steps in from time to time to show off painting works in progress and provide tips.

Tips and conduct
All skill levels are welcome to participate in multiplayer as long as you try to race clean. Since Johniwanna and Mechberg don't issue multiplayer invites, you'll have to join their session in order to find the lobby. Add them as a Friend on Xbox to be able to join them; if they show offline, try joining off the name of another gamertag you see in their lobby. Lobby players are expected to race, not spectate (which you can do from the stream); if you're not racing, leave the lobby so others can race.

Once you're in the lobby and racing be courteous and mute your mic.

Don't beg for codes, but keep your eyes and ears open because sometimes DLC codes will be posted in the chat - first to redeem a code gets it. Have your browser open to the redeem page on in order to quickly copy & paste the code.

Don't expect in-depth answers to all questions. The stream is a chance to have fun rather than make significant announcements. Use the forum Wish List threads for requests.

Considering that Forza is an E for Everyone game, chat is expected to follow a similar standard; vulgarity will be purged and may result in a ban from the channel.

I watched both streams a little yesterday when Brian was playing FH1. I'd have to say when watching from a PC Twitch sure seemed low res and Beam was in HD. Oddly when I watch from my XBox Twitch app I do get HD streaming as well.

Seeing how Microsoft just bought Beam you can expect a Beam app for XBox in the future. Sadly that will most likely also mean that the Twitch app will be discontinued on XBox once Microsoft feels confident enough about Beam and wants to increase it's market share compared to Twitch.

Tuesday September 27
To celebrate the launch of Forza Horizon 3, we’ve got a number of livestream shows planned this week. First up on Tuesday, Sept. 27, we’ll be joining rock gods Dave Mustaine and Dirk Verbeuren from legendary metal band Megadeth as they play Forza Horizon 3 beginning at 12 p.m. Pacific over on the official Xbox Twitch channel as part of Xbox’s Game With Fame. Feel free to drop by, ask the band questions, and see how their Forza Horizon 3 skills stack up.

Directly after, we’ll launch into our regular Tuesday Twitch stream, where myself and John Schommer from the Forza Community Team will be playing Forza Horizon 3 well into the evening. Interested in getting in on the action and diving into multiplayer with us? Send us a friend request: Brian (GT: Mechberg), John (GT: johniwanna). The stream kicks off at 1 p.m. Pacific, and you can watch on our Twitch channel or over at the official Forza Beam channel, so don’t miss it!

#ForzaFriday September 30
I’m especially excited for today’s edition of #ForzaFriday, our regular weekly livestream. After all, this is our first FF show since the global launch of the game and we expect the Forza community to be out in force. We’ll be spending the majority of the show exploring Forza Horizon 3, looking to play with as many people as possible. Naturally, tradition demands that we’ll end the show with another “Random ‘Ring Race” in Forza Motorsport 6, so look out for that as well. The show will start a bit later than usual today – look for us to go live around 3:30 p.m. Pacific – but we’ll still be going the full two hours. Tune in over at Twitch or on the official Forza Beam channel. We look forward to seeing you there!

October S14th #Forzathon
The October S14th #Forzathon event has arrived, and with it, your chance to add one of the most requested cars in Forza history to your garage. While the S14 event is undoubtedly the most anticipated #Forzathon event this week, it’s not the only one. There are three events happening today... While credit and XP bonuses are nice, let’s be real; everybody wants that S14. The “Initial Drift King” event challenges players to earn 35,000 points in a drift zone with a very specific (and very relevant) car.

If you missed the S14th #Forzathon event, don’t worry, there will be more opportunities to earn the Nissan Silvia K’s in the future. And we’ve got more #Forzathon events coming up – next weekend, you’ll be able to win the Ford #17 Falcon FG and, at the end of the month, a chance to win the Halo Warthog. Don’t miss out!
