Forza Horizon 3 is gold: PC specs and Achievements listed, and a Warthog is included for Halo players

Not only were the recommended PC specs released along with news of going gold, but a video showing the Halo Warthog in-game and the list of Achievements have been provided too.

Forza Horizon 3 is off for disc pressing, which is what going gold means – if you didn’t know that already.

In the video above, you get a look at the 2554 AMG Transport Dynamics M12S Warthog CST which will be included as one of the 350+ vehicles in the Forza Garage.

This is the first time in the Forza series players will be able to drive the iconic Halo ground vehicle. It will be handed out to those who have played Halo 5 or The Master Chief Collection on Xbox One when Forza Horizon 3 launches.

Eligible players will receive a download code for the Warthog via an Xbox Live Message, and codes will begin to be sent out during the week of September 5.

Those who have not played an Xbox One Halo game can earn the Warthog through a #Forzathon event coming in October.

The Achievements list for Forza Horizon 3 is rather long, so you can take a look at it for yourself through the game’s website.

Those interested in using driving wheels on PC should know that Microsoft plans on providing more information on wheel support for the W10 version at a later date.
