Also picked up Forza Horizon 3 due to a pricing mistake. I'll probably play that a bit too.

It's true! Not still going on.

It was a pricing error from Target. The game was listed for $19.99 (cross buy between Windows 10 and Xbox One). If you bought a car DLC or VIP Pass or something (also $19.99), then you got $10 off. So $19.99+19.99-$10 = $29.98 for a brand new game and the VIP Pass. Thought it was a good deal. Hopped on it. Lots of people got cancellation notices and delays.

It was only up for like 30 minutes.

Dang. See that on slick deals? Is the game still listed for $20?
Nope. Google search shows it for $20, but when you click in it is $60

Have you gotten it installed on Windows 10?

I saw it on /r/gamedeals first, eventually saw it on slickdeals after I had purchased. Installed and played a bit. It's real purdy.

I'm not a racing game guy, but I would have bought this for $20 just to look at it. Trailers make it look photorealistic. Did you get the Halo Warthog?

Yes, I think you get sent a code for it if you own Halo 5 or MCC, and there's supposed to be an in-game event soon to let you get it otherwise.

How is the game running for you? I've seen there's lots of people having issues, especially on previous gen cards, and I don't think they've released a patch yet.

Here is the event to unlock it
https://gamerant.com/forza-horizon-3-ha ... g-no-code/

Thankfully, Microsoft has revealed that fans who are looking to add this car to their garage will have the opportunity to do so in October when the first special #Forzathon event kicks off. These semi-monthly events are around for a limited amount of time, and offer players the chance to compete in various races with the chance to earn some unique rewards such as the Warthog from the Halo franchise. Unfortunately, that’s where the details end as Microsoft has not revealed a specific start date for the upcoming tournament.

No real issues running it. Tyler will make fun of me for this, but running on 4k resolution with an Nvidia GTX 970 by EVGA on medium settings. This medium looks like every other game's ultra. Which is why I'm running medium and not Ultra on Forza Horizon 3. I usually get low to mid 50's for frame rate.

Only experienced one weird freeze and crash so far, but nothing too crazy. Not sure what caused that one, but everything seemed to lock up for like 10-15 seconds and then the game was just gone. Restarted the game and everything ran fine.


I'll have to check this out when I get home.

I find that hard to believe, seeing the car you drive.
