Big fan of DBZ, so I'm actually thinking about installing FighterZ and getting as much achievements as possible. dance

I'm surprised FH3 isn't on Game Pass. That is to say, I want it to be on Game Pass, so I can get at least something of a discount on that stupid hoonigan pack.

FH3 for sure - I had already started it on a borrowed copy - now I can progress some more. I'll also be making use of a CR head start with my collection of rewards from forzamotorsports.net I have been accumulating over the years. I'll need to find the quickest path for the most achievements I'll be able to gather over the weekend. Woot!!!

FH3? Accident instead of 4? Seems an odd choice to try and push sales of three nowadays.

Forza Horizon 4 is on Game Pass so there is already a way for people to try it out on the cheap. Not really an odd choice as it is likely to be delisted about 5 years after the release date so they would want to secure as many sales of it as they can before that time.

Very much appreciate the heads-up for Free Play Days games, I often forget to check until Sunday afternoon!

Any way we can have the title of these articles start with "FREE PLAY DAYS:" in the future to make it stand out more when scrolling through the home page??
GBR!

I feel the same knowing on the 25th will be the last 4 Forzathons.
Case Closed so don't debate it.

I would also like this feature. And maybe an alert when a game on my wishlist is selected for free play.

Yes, there are 4 challenges this week on fh3.
They are the last of about 600 challenges, and will give you a massive ZERO gamer score.
There is not going to be any more challenges for this game, as far as I can tell.
If it bothers you to only have 1% of all the challenges completed, and are just starting fh3 this weekend, you might want to drive carefully so as not to accidentally complete any of these challenges.

Can't recommend either of these games enough. I'm not a huge racing fan, LOVE the Horizon series. Not a huge fighting fan, been OBSESSED with FighterZ since I picked it up on sale a month ago.

Both phenomenal and worth checking out imo.

FH3 is brilliant, but I don't get why people are making any deal out of the challenges ending soon. If you are going to miss out on a game because of nothing, then I feel bad for you

I want it to be added too, my old FH3 disc doesn't work anymore. It installs to 2.5GB and gives up, I've tried it with two X1s and they both have the same issue.
Here be dragons.

Care to explain this? Are we going to miss something when it goes free with GwG? Cause the game hasn't dropped a single dolar in my country and to pay that much for a game this old I dont feel like it.

Same. Last one is called bye bye cry Kind of like packing up at the end of summer and everyone's left and gone on to the next thing... (in this case FH4)

I just did 3 of the last 4 (don't think I can be bothered to do a championship for another Porsche Cayenne). Feels quite strange playing it again after putting a few hundred hours into FH4. It was fun times but it's over now... cry smile

You will miss something, but whether it's important to you is up to you to decide.

The game had weekly forzathon challenges, which gave prizes ranging from credits, XP or cars. There are some 'unicorn' cars which aren't available to buy, like the Nissan Silvia K's (a much better car in FH3 than in FH4 where it's uncompetitive) but the good news is you can still get all those cars in the auction house. (I assume they aren't shutting THAT down just yet.)
