Forza Horizon 2 Launch Trailer Now Available
In Addition, ‘Forza Rewards’ Loyalty Program Also Announced
Turn 10 Studios and Playground Games today premiered a heart-pounding launch trailer ahead of the October 2nd release date, showcasing the game’s massive wide-open world racing experience and ultimate celebration of speed, style and action-packed driving.
The Forza Horizon 2 launch trailer highlights the game’s beautiful southern European setting and thrilling, action-packed racing. Featuring many of the more than 200 cars that are available at launch, the trailer brings to life the freedom and fun that defines Forza Horizon 2.
Also, as a way of saying “thank you” to all the passionate fans who have continued to be a part of the Forza experience over the years, Turn 10 Studios today announced that fans will be eligible to receive several Forza Horizon 2 cars through Forza Rewards, the loyalty program where players can earn in-game content just for playing Forza games.
Whether you’re an experienced Forza Faithful or a first time driver, all Forza players have a chance to add up to five in-game cars to their Forza Horizon 2 garage the first time they log in to the game. These five in-game (not DLC) cars include the 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe, the 2013 Viper GTS, the 2015 Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4, the 2014 Local Motors Rally Fighter, and the 2013 McLaren P1.
Players start earning Forza Rewards practically the moment they start playing a Forza game. Whether it’s new cars to add to their garage, or a stack of in-game credits for players to spend how they like, each month Forza fans will always receive something new.
Starting from Forza Motorsport 2 on the Xbox 360, through Forza Motorsport 5 and now Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox One, players automatically earn points by doing specific things in a game. In Forza Motorsport 5, for example, players earn points based on the number of cars they own, the number of miles they’ve driven in the game, and so on.
The more points players earn, the higher their Rewards Tier Level will be. Your Rewards Tier Level determines what awards are available to players at the start of each month. The higher the Rewards Tier Level, the bigger the reward they’ll receive each month.
Earning free in-game content each month is great but it’s just the start of the story. The first time players log in to Forza Horizon 2, they’ll earn a special one-time gift via Forza Rewards. This gift-car reward will depend on their current Forza Rewards Tier Level, and they’ll have to be at least Tier 2 to earn a reward.
Here’s how the rewards break down by Rewards Tier Level:
- Tier Level 2 – 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe
- Tier Level 3 – 2013 Viper GTS
- Tier Level 4 – 2015 Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4
- Tier Level 5 – 2014 Local Motors Rally Fighter
- Tier Level 6 – 2013 McLaren P1
Once you have logged in to the game, you will receive a special message in Forza Horizon 2 and be able to add these awesome cars to your Forza Horizon 2 garage. Note that these Tier Rewards are cumulative. For example, if you are Rewards Tier Level 3 the first time you log in to Horizon 2, you will earn both the 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe and the 2013 Viper GTS. If you have maxed out your Rewards Tier Level at Tier 6, you will receive all five of the bonus cars.
With just a few weeks to go before the launch of Forza Horizon 2, there’s still time for fans to increase their Rewards Tier Level to ensure that they get the best reward they can.
