Forza 5 Free Weekend Announced

By Andy Mills, 2 years ago
As the launch of Forza Horizon 2 approaches, Microsoft are allowing Xbox Live Gold members to play Forza Motorsport 5 in its entirety for free this upcoming weekend.

Starting from 12.01am PDT tomorrow, September 4th, the free weekend will last until 11:59pm PDT on Sunday, September 7th and afterwards, if you want to continue, you'll need to buy a copy either through the Xbox Store, or from your retailer of choice.

Turn 10 will also be running a couple of events during the weekend, with a special title and badge available for those who complete and drive 130 miles in the new special endurance event, the Grand Tour of Prague. For those of you in the US, you can also win the chance to enjoy an all-expenses paid trip to Forza Motorsport Grand Prix Road Racing Class at the esteemed Bondurant School of High Performance Driving in Arizona for three days.

Finally, any achievements and Gamerscore unlocked will be there to stay, not wiped at the end of the weekend, just in case you were worried about that.

Forza Motorsport 5 is available on Xbox Store today (although you should wait until tomorrow!) and Forza Horizon 2 will be released on September 30th on Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
