Forza Horizon 5 is kicking off February with a new series revolving around the World Cup, introducing new cars to earn throughout the series being the Saleen S7 2004, and the Koenigsegg Jesko 2020. These are both incredible options within the S2 and X Classes, so this season is definitely one to score.
Unfortunately for this series, the Treasure Hunt challenges aren’t arriving until the third season, but this week’s season still contains a good challenge to complete. The cars available to unlock within the Summer Season are the NI0 EP9 for 25 points, and the Hoonicorn V2 for 40 points.
Alongside the brand-new World Cup, Forza has re-introduced the Showcase Remix events to the festival, last shown within the previous Scottish landscape. The newest event, Opening Ceremony, is a remix on the Buggy and the Beast Showcase event, as you take on these monolithic giants with a Can-Am Maverick, rather than the normal Ford Bronco.
PHOTO CHALLENGE #COUNTRYSPORTS
The challenge requirements are simple. Jump into the Chevrolet Camaro Super Sport 1969 at the Tierra Prospera fields. If you have yet to unlock this car, it is available to buy from the Autoshow for 110,000 CR.
The Tierra Prospera area can be found to the east of the El Estadio Horizon stadium, and to the South-East of Guanajuato.
Simply drive up to the fields, open the camera app by using up on the D-pad and tap A to snap the picture to gain the rewards.
Upon completion, the Breaking Shatter car horn reward can be applied by pausing the game in freeroam, select the Cars tab, then Car Horn on the bottom right. From here, head to the Sound Effects tab at the top, and the Breaking Shatter sound effect is readily available to be used, found within the Epic rarity.

This week’s rewards available within Series 3’s Hot season are two cars, an emote, and a car horn, alongside the always available Wheelspins.

- Macarena Emote – 75 FP
- Countdown Timer Car Horn – 75 FP
- Koenigsegg CC8S 2002 – 400 FP

#FORZATHON WEEKLY CHALLENGE TRIATHLON OF RACING
Forza is getting straight into the World Cup spirit, as it’s time to represent a chosen country. Whether that’s the country you’re from, or where your favourite manufacturer is located, you’ll need to hop into any car that’s made from a manufacturer located within France, Germany, Italy, Japan, UK or the USA to show your support.
There is no right or wrong option here, jump into a car and class of your choice, and complete a Road Circuit Race Event, a Dirt Scramble Race Event, and a Cross-Country Race Event. You’re able to complete these with different cars, so it’s worth changing according to the different disciplines.
