Forza Horizon 2 is Out Today, So is the Forza Hub

by on October 3, 2014

In case you didn’t realise, Horizon 2 is a fantastic game, as proven in Jonny’s 9/10 scoring review.

And despite being available in North American earlier, it’s now out in the UK for your purchasing pleasure. If you don’t want to leave your home, you can just buy it direct from the Xbox store.

But on top of that, Microsoft have announced the release of the Forza Hub, a Forza-specific app (think Halo Waypoint, but for Forza) that lets you keep right up to date with all things Forza-related.

Here’s the details:

Welcome to Forza Hub

Each time you log in to Forza Hub, the first screen you see will be the Welcome section. This is where you’ll find the latest happenings in the “Forza” world – from new contest announcements to details on the latest DLC releases and much more. In addition to the news, the Welcome Screen will also let you know whether or not you have new Forza Rewards to redeem, which you can redeem directly from within Forza Hub.

My Forza

Access the My Forza section of Forza Hub to check out eligible Rewards across all participating Forza games. In the My Forza section, you‘ll see your current Forza Score and Forza Tier Level (which you can expand for more detail), the nearest achievement you can complete in any “Forza” game, as well as the details on which Forza Rewards you can currently redeem. If you’ve already redeemed this month’s rewards, My Forza will also tell you when you’ll next be able to redeem new Forza Rewards.

If you’re looking for tips on how to add to your Forza Score and increase your Forza Tier Level (and thus be eligible for better monthly Forza Rewards), we’ve got you covered. With just a click, you can get tips on the quickest way to increase your score across any and all participating “Forza” games. In addition, you can also see how you stack up against your friends by using the “Friends Compare” feature on the “My Forza” page.

News and Events

Forza Hub delivers your community-related content in a big way. Head over to the “News & Events” section for the latest custom “Forza” content, delivered directly from the Forza Community Team. Check out our long-running weekly columns like “Heavy Metal Affliction” and “Rear View Mirror” or get caught up with everything happening in the “Forza” universe with our weekly wrap, the “Week in Review.” Community spotlights, up-to-the-minute news flashes, if it’s new in “Forza” you can find it here.
