Experienced Forza players will hit the ground running in Forza Horizon 2 this month, as Turn 10 Studios will carry on with the series' loyalty program introduced last year. Announced just over a year ago, Forza Rewards hands the keys to some sweet digital vehicles to players that raced in past entries in the series, and the upcoming game will offer up to five cars to returning drivers.

Forza Rewards gives players points based on their in-game actions, starting with Forza 2 on. Earning points for owning a large number of cars in Forza 5, for example, will add to players' point totals and increase their reward level tier. Upon starting Forza Horizon 2 for the first time, tier two and above loyalty program participants will receive one car right away, depending on their reward tier. The five in-game cars include the 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe (Tier 2), the 2013 Viper GTS (Tier 3), the 2015 Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 (Tier 4), the 2014 Local Motors Rally Fighter (Tier 5) and the 2013 McLaren P1 (Tier 6).

Forza Horizon 2 will launch on September 30 for Xbox One and Xbox 360. Microsoft also issued a launch trailer for the game today, found after the break.

Start "Forza Horizon 2" with Several Exciting Cars Earned through Forza Rewards
Fans can obtain monthly rewards in "Forza Horizon 2" based on past "Forza" experience; "Forza Horizon 2" launch trailer ignites the countdown to Sept. 30

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 they'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
Car
2
2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe
3
2013 Viper GTS
4
2015 Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4
5
2014 Local Motors Rally Fighter
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.
