Playground Games has announced a new slew of cars coming to “Forza Horizon 3.” Its week five announcement of cars included in the game introduces a mix of 30 old and classic cars.

From the early 1970 Ford Deluxe Coupe to the 2016 lineups like the Abarth 695 Biposto, the Cadillac CTS-V Sedan, the Aston Martin Vantage GT12, the W Motors Lykan Hypersport and the 2017 Nissan GT-R, there are a lot of cars coming to “Forza Horizon 3.”

To get the hype going, the developer has also released a couple of new screenshots, such as a first look at the 2017 Nissan GT-R. According to the Forza Motorsport website, the Godzilla car gets a boost in engine cooling, an aggressive look and a lot of technology packed in its innards.

“Forza Horizon 3” will also get some new activities in the form of weekly challenges. The Forzathon was revealed to be themed competitions.

Playground Games announced the new feature at Gamescom, stating that this event will allow players to win prizes that are exclusive to the Forzathon, Polygon reported.

The challenges will start in October, which means fans can already look forward to some new content a little less than a month after the game’s official launch. The developer has even specified a prize coming on Oct. 14, which is a Nissan Silvia S14.

Following this, there’s even an unspecified even happening on Oct. 28 to 30. As far as prizes are concerned for the weekend event, the only clue that “Forza Horizon 3” Creative Director Ralph Fulton gave was that the prize will be a vehicle that was not yet made drivable in the Forza franchise before.
