Those exact ones, 

 

The Drift King - Any 3 drift zones in freeroam. Either in singleplayer or multiplayer, it doesn't matter.

 

AKA D.K. - Get 100,000 skill points in total (so getting a skill chain that's 10,000 points but you have a x10 multiplier will count as 100,000 skill points) anywhere in freeroam. Either in singleplayer or multiplayer, it doesn't matter.

 

Initial Drift King - I'm not entirely sure what it means by "Drift your way to 35,000 points". It could mean "get 35,000 drift skill points" or "score 35,000 points in a drift zone). Either way, it's in freeroam, in singleplayer or multiplayer.

 

The last challenges were for doing multiplayer only events.

 

To see what the challenges are in game, open the pause menu, go to the Social tab and it's under "Forzathon".

It's been leaked that the next DLC will include at least one Porsche.

I never really understood why Porsche has always been so hesitant to include their cars in games.
Are they concerned that their name will be tainted if XxMLGxN0xSkopeZxX drives their cars around?

Has to do with their licensing and the fact that EA had rights to their cars that just recently expired. It's why there was the whole Porsche pack for Forza 6 so much later after launch

No, Porsche didn't care about their cars being used in video games. This is why, in 2001, they signed a 15 year contract with EA so EA has exclusive rights to their brand in video games. Ever since then, if you wanted Porsche in your game, you would have to get permission from EA. Of course, EA being EA, they charge way too much for a license. This is why hardly any games have Porsche in them. The good news is that the contract expires at the end of this year and I don't think Porsche renewed it.

Drifting is a serious sport.

I see, that really doesn't surprise me at all. Hopefully we can finally start seeing Porsche in more games soon.

Customer support lied to me about refunds saying that they don't do them for online purchases... Funny... Google shows otherwise.

DO NOT PURHCASE THIS GAME.
