Forza Horizon 5 Midnights at Horizon Summer: Festival Playlist, reward cars, Photo Challenge, Treasure Hunt

Today marks the start of a new Forza Horizon 5 Series, and with it comes the Forza Horizon 5 Midnights at Horizon Summer Festival Playlist.

With four new-to-Forza cars joining the roster over the next month, extended night-time drives, and new customisation options, Midnights at Horizon is easily one of the best Series updates in a long time.

What does this week’s Festival Playlist have in store for Forza Horizon 5 players? Let’s find out. 

Forza Horizon 5 Midnights at Horizon Summer

The Forza Horizon 5 Midnights at Horizon Summer season starts on 30 March at 3:30pm BST / 10:30am ET. You then have until 6 April at 3:30pm BST / 10:30am ET to complete all the challenges.

Reward cars

Two shiny supercars are up for grabs as Series Progress rewards this week. At 20 points, you can win the Rimac Nevera, which makes its Forza Horizon 5 debut.

A production version of the Rimac C_Two, the Nevera is one of the fastest electric supercars in the world, setting an EV top speed record of 258 mph last year.

Earing 40 points rewards you with the 2018 Italdesign Zerouno, an all-wheel drive hypercar based on the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4.

Five more cars can be added to your garage this week by completing the playlist challenges. Completing The Trial unlocks the McLaren 570S Coupe, while completing the Event Lab event gives you the Maserati Gran Turismo S.

Conquering the Season Championships rewards you the Mini John Cooper Works GP and Audi RS 3 Sportback hot hatches. Finally, winning the Hot Wheels Seasonal Championship earns you the International Scout 800A. This 1970s off-roader seems out of place with the high-performance machinery on offer this week.

Coinciding with the launch of the Rally Adventure expansion DLC, the Midnights in Horizons Series sees Rally Adventure events added to the Festival Playlist, but there are no reward cars for these events.

Treasure Hunt: Shelby Coming Down the Mountain

The clue for the Shelby Coming Down the Mountain Treasure Hunt is: “She's a beauty to behold, you must drift sideways to win gold.”
