Winter is here in Forza Horizon 5, with the new season bringing a new Festival Playlist full of new challenges and reward cars to win.
There are plenty of high-performance cars up from multiple eras for grabs this week to satisfy your need for speed, along with a new Photo Challenge for virtual photographers and a Treasure Hunt.
We’ve got everything you need to know in our breakdown of the Forza Horizon 5 High Performance Winter Festival Playlist.
Forza Horizon 5 High Performance Winter
Forza Horizon 5 High Performance Autumn begins on 11 May at 3:30pm BST / 10:30am ET. You then have until 18 May 3:30pm BST / 10:30am ET to complete the challenges and unlock every reward car.
The High Performance Winter Festival Playlist gives you a chance to rack up some points towards the Series Progress cars: the Ferrari 599XX (80 points) and the legendary McLaren F1 (160 points).
Earning 20 points in this week’s season challenges will also unlock the Audi RS 6 '21. You can also win the Noble M600 at 40 points.
On top of that, five more reward cars are up for grabs this week from tyre-smoking US muscle cars to Italian supercars. Completing The Trial wins you the Chevy Camaro '15, while winning the Fleeting Flag Rush Playground Games event gives you keys to the Audi RS 6 '09.
If you have a penchant for retro supercars, the iconic 1988 Lamborghini Countach LP5000 QV and 1994 Ferrari F355 Berlinetta are the prize cars for completing this week’s Seasonal Championships.
If you have the Hot Wheels Expansion, you can also win the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon in the Seasonal championship.
In addition, you can win four Super Wheelspins by completing challenges in the main Festival Playlist. The Hot Wheels and Rally Adventure expansion playlists also have one Super Wheelspin prize each.
Additional Festival Playlist rewards this week include Peach Raul Urias Sundress for completing the Event Lab and an Applause car horn for completing the Horizon Open.
Photo Challenge: #FastFromThePast
This week’s Photo Challenge requires you to photograph any Retro Supercar at the Temple of Quechula. Your reward for this challenge is a "This isn't even my final form!" Forza Link.
Treasure Hunt: Road Ready
After being omitted in last week’s Festival Playlist, Treasure Hunts return this week. Here’s your clue for the Road Ready Treasure Hunt: “Toys never deal well with asphalt, but perhaps a toy meant for the track does better?”
