15 Days; 8 Challenges; 5 Major Cities; 1 Ultimate Road Trip
Would you rather leave your limits and tear through city streets in a high-performance sportscar or explore the wilderness in a tricked out Jeep? Now you can do both!
To celebrate the launch of Forza Horizon 3, we’re setting out across Canada on an adventure that puts fans in the driver’s seat. Starting today in Vancouver, British Columbia, we’re travelling across the country to a Forza Horizon-inspired event in Montreal, Quebec. Along the way, we’ll make pit stops to complete real-life challenges chosen by you, in vehicles inspired by the award-winning game. That’s right. You can vote on the challenges to decide where our adventure takes us on each stop. To vote, follow us on social at @XboxCanada #AcrossTheHorizon.
We’ll start our engines on the west coast, where you’ll decide if we’ll climb Vancouver’s highest peak in a Jeep Wrangler at sunrise or head to a high-speed airstrip in Pemberton where we’ll Thread The Needle and master J-turns, pushing a McLaren 650S Spider to its limits.
Then, we’ll head east to Saskatoon where we’ll test our speed racing skills at the Wyant Group Race Track in a Mercedes C Coupe or take the Mercedes C Coupe off the track and swerve through the City of 7 Bridges, chasing the sunset and stopping in the middle of each bridge for the ultimate time-lapse.
Our trip then takes us into the wilderness of Northern Ontario, where you’ll decide if we tackle ravine runs, mud pits and rocky roads in a Polaris Side X Side in Wawa or conquer 30 degree climbs and catch some air in a Ford F150, at an abandoned mine in Quarry Park.
The next stop is the bright lights of Toronto. Tell us if you would rather we try speed challenges in a McLaren 570S at Shannonville Motorsport Park or drift like a pro in custom cars at Topp Drift.
Our journey ends in Quebec, where all roads will converge at Montreal’s legendary “New City Gas” for a Forza Horizon-inspired meet-up. If you’re in town, join us to play Forza Horizon 3, enjoy amazing music and drool over some supercars. Or, meet us at select EB Games locations across Canada where fans can experience the thrill of playing the game before it launches on September 27.

This is just one in a series of exciting events to celebrate the launch of Forza Horizon 3 including an Xbox FanFest celebration at the Sydney Dragway in Australia and a US launch event to be announced soon.
