For the summer season, the playlist prizes are the Mercedes-AMG E63, for 25 playlist points, and the Maserati 8CTF, for 45 points. This is out of a total of 68 points available, so it shouldn't be too tough to earn both rewards.

Forzathon challenges

This week, the Forzathon challenges are based around the 1993 Nissan 240SX SE. Earn 5 playlist points and 80 Forzathon points for completing every chapter.

There's also the usual daily challenges. We haven't seen these yet, except for the first two. We'll need to earn 250,000 skill points for the first and then drive three different cars in a game of the Eliminator for the second. Daily challenges are each worth 1 playlist point and 10 Forzathon points.

Season events

Complete a Horizon Arcade theme of Mini Games for 3 playlist points. The Trial this week is Elf on a Shelf and has the Elf Outfit reward. You'll need to have enough accolades to be in the Hall of Fame to enter the Trial.

The EventLab game Bowling in the Deep earns you the Elf Hat to go with the outfit. Here's the description: Race to the finish while knocking down as many pins as possible, but mind the gap! There's also the Playground Games event Ready, Get Set, Glow which has the Chevy Bel Air for its reward.
