Forza Horizon 5 Dia de Muertos Patch Notes are here with today's update to Horizon.

There's a lot included with the 10th October 2023 update and this is also the first FH5 update after Forza Motorsport is available to players. The big talking point is the Die de Muertos content, which we've already covered here.

We're bringing you the full patch notes and everything else you need to know about the Forza Horizon 5 Dia de Muertos update!

Forza Horizon 5 Dia de Muertos Patch Notes

Dia de Muertos is Mexico's most famous holidays. So, it makes sense that Forza Horizon 5 should celebrate this, as Mexico plays host to the game's map. For those that don't know what Dia de Muertos is, it literally translates as "Day of the Dead" in English.

Think Halloween in the daytime but with carnival vibes and even more sweets thanks to pinatas. If you're ever lucky enough to travel to Mexico during this festival, you'll see people walking the streets in those colourful skull masks.
