The summary of the first five The Forza Horizon 5 festival playlists have been pretty straightforward, focusing on a particular theme and area of the game for players to explore. Festivals over the past month have focused on PR Stunts centered around the Horizon Rush outpost. This month, Series 6 is looking to expand it to the entire game.
A host of new additions to Forza Horizon 5, including a new story, increased Eventlab support, and an updated way to play against others online through Horizon Open, are all titles in the series to come. to come. For the majority of subsequent seasonal playlists, you will see an increased focus on Eventlabs and Horizon Open.
The brand new story, “Drift Club Mexico”, is a challenge for the duration of the festival. This is the first new Horizon 5 story to be added since the game’s launch. Completing this story before the end of the Spring Playlist will earn you three points for all seasons as well as the “Legendary” Ford Mach- E 1400.
In general, playlists will all offer more chances to earn points as well, with an overall increase from Series 5 to 208 total points to 230 total in Series 6. A ton of new and exciting stuff is just at the beyond… HORIZON… sorry, bad pun.
