The Forza Horizon 5 Race-Off patch notes are here!

The new monthly update for Forza Horizon 5 has gone live and there's a lot of new content included within it. There's also bug fixes and quality of life improvements for the open-world arcade racer.

So, if you're wanting to check out the patch notes which come alongside the update for Forza Horizon 5, you've come to the right place!

Forza Horizon 5 Race-Off Patch Notes

Race-Off brings a whole lot to the table for players of Forza Horizon 5. One of the main highlights is the Acceleration Car Pack, which has four of the fastest cars in the game included.

If you want to own the 2021 McLaren Sabre, 2019 Ginetta G10 RM, 2022 Ford Supervan 4 and 1967 Shelby GT500, you'll need to pay a little extra, as this is the only part of the update which isn't free.

What is free, though, is the timed events, which if you pass mean that you'll gain two new cars. For passing all of the off-road events, you'll get the 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R and the asphalt events will get you a 2024 Ford Mustang GT.

You'll also find that there's a stunning new race-off outpost to explore and 18 EventLab items to use. That's not all though, as four new reward cars will be available at different times through the next month.
