The new Forza Horizon 5 Donut Media Series is live, bringing a brand new Horizon Story plus a raft of new challenges and reward cars. Without further ado, let’s dive into the Forza Horizon 5 Donut Media Summer Festival Playlist.
Donut Media Summer
Forza Horizon 5 Donut Media Summer starts today (10 November) at 14:30 GMT/14:30 UTC and ends on 17 November at 14:30 GMT/14:30 UTC.
Series 14 is inspired by automotive YouTube channel Donut Media. A new five-part Horizon Story sees you collaborate with Donut Media’s James Pumphrey and Nolan Sykes, who appear as in-game characters, to build a custom rally car and take on novelty challenges.
This week’s Season Reward cars for completing objectives are the new-to-Forza #100 Lynk&Co 03 (20 points) and the Ascari KZ1R (40 points)
Seven more reward cars are up for grabs by completing the various Festival Playlist can be yours.
