The new Festival Playlist is here for our favourite Mexican open-world racing game, and here’s how to maximise the Series 5 Winter challenges.
It’s the third week of the Horizon Rush takeover within Forza Horizon 5 and the multitude of PR stunts continues.
There’s no Treasure Hunt for this week, unfortunately, but you should still be able to have plenty to do within the Mexican landscape.
The cars available to unlock within the Winter Dry Season are the Noble M600 2010 for 20 points, and the Mercedes Benz 300 SL Coupé for 40 points.
How to complete the PHOTO CHALLENGE #STUNTPARADISE
The challenge requirements are simple. Jump into any Hoonigan of your choosing and head to the Stadium Stunt Park that is located the El Estadio Horizon south of Guanajuato.
Simply drive into the stadium, 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 “Time to Hoon?” Forza Link reward can be applied by pausing the game in freeroam, select the Online tab, then Forza Link on the bottom right. From here, choose a phrase you would like to replace, then head to the Exclamations tab at the top, and the phrase will be available for you to select.
SERIES 5 WINTER DRY SEASON #FORZATHON SHOP HIGHLIGHTS
This week’s rewards available within Forza Horizon 5’s Series 5 Dry season are two cars, a pair of boots, and a car horn, alongside the always available Wheelspins.
Both cars are available to buy from the Autoshow, with the Jaguar costing a small fee of 7,500,000 CR, so it’s definitely the best time to grab it.
However, the useful Formula Drift is only 300,000CR from the Autoshow and is a great car for drifting. The available items from the Forzathon Shop this week are:
- Jaguar Lightweight E-Type 1964 – 750 FP
- Tan Winter Boots – 75 FP
- Minecraft Theme Car Horn – 75 FP
- Formula Drift #117 599 GTB Fiorana – 400 FP
- 1x Super Wheelspin – 300 FP
- 1x Horizon Wheelspin – 80 FP
FORZATHON WEEKLY CHALLENGE OFFROAD REVOLUTION
Time for some Group B action, as you tackle this week’s challenge within the 1986 Hoonigan Ford RS200 Evolution. The tasks involve earning 3 stars at the La Subida Speed Zone, banking 100,000 skill points and then finishing off with earning 6 stars at danger signs.
The La Subida Speed Zone can be found on the dirt road to the west of the Volcano and requires a 115mph target to earn 3 stars. This weekly challenge should be easily completable without a tune.
