Now in the 13th series of Forza Horizon 5 festivals, this month, starting 11th October, fans are set to celebrate Horizon’s 10th Anniversary. Horizon 10 Year Anniversary is the series name and with it comes yet another Horizon Story to complete, further trips down memory lane in Horizon Origins.
Each week, each season is themed around the four previous Forza Horizon titles.
- Summer is Forza Horizon 1, and will bring back memories of Colorado, including a new Copper Canyon festival site during the week.
- Autumn will harken back to Forza Horizon 2, a nod to Europe which will have a Guanajuato outpost to celebrate.
- Winter goes down under, Australia was the map in Forza Horizon 3 and Dunas Blancas will be hosting a desert festival.
- Spring goes back to Forza Horizon 4, celebrating the British countryside, and Horizon Stadium will have the themed outpost that week.
