Microsoft Confirm Forza Horizon 3 PC Specs & Surprise Vehicle

August 30th 2016, Microsoft confirm Forza Horizon 3 PC specs & surprise vehicle for the title! Microsoft also confirmed that the title has now made the transition to gold status. This means development work has now been completed and the title is at the stage that physical disks can now be produced. As if that wasn’t enough, Microsoft have also released the full list of achievements available for Forza Horizon 3 and by the looks of it, there is plenty to do in order to obtain those trophies!

Halo 2554 AMG Transport Dynamics M12S Warthog CST

Fans of the Halo franchise will be very happy to learn that the Warthog will be included in the upcoming title! For people who may not know exactly what the Warthog vehicle is, it is the iconic Halo 2554 AMG Transport Dynamics M12S Warthog CST, a civilian transport vehicle based on the M12 Force Application Vehicle, which is also used for militaristic purposes in the game. However, before being able to drive the Warthog, there is a caveat to being able to go bush-bashing in this tough as nails off-roader!

The Caveat:

Players of Forza Horizon 3 will need to previously have played Halo 5: Guardians, or Halo: The Master Chief Collection on XBOX One, after which they will obtain a code from Microsoft via XBOX Live. For players that have not played the mentioned Halo titles on the XBOX One that would still like to drive the Warthog, don’t despair. You will have the opportunity to participate in the upcoming Forzathon event in October, allowing you to unlock the vehicle in Forza Horizon 3.
