Autumn is arriving in Forza Horizon 5 Series 12 today. The latest season of the Horizon Road Trip (Playground Games has dropped numbered series) brings a fresh batch of challenges including a Treasure Hunt, as well as new cars to add to your collection.
Check out our full breakdown of the Forza Horizon 5 Series 12 Autumn Festival Playlist.
Series 12 Autumn
Forza Horizon 5 Series 12 Autumn starts today (22 September) at 15:30 BST/14:30 UTC and ends on 29 September at 15:30 BST/14:30 UTC.
In Horizon Road Trip, every season focuses on a different race type. Last week’s Summer season was all about Road Racing, but Autumn focuses on Cross Country racing.
In terms of Season Progress cars, you can win the Audi RS 7 Sportback '21 at 20 points and Toyota 4Runner at 40 points.
Five more reward cars can be yours by completing the Autumn Festival Playlist challenges. Completing the Cross-Country Sports Trial event rewards you with the Alumi Craft C.10.
In line with the off-roading theme, the luxury Bentley Bentayga, rugged Toyota FJ40, and dependable Jeep Cherokee '14 can also be yours for completing the three Seasonal Championships.
To unlock the Bentayga, you need to complete The Titan Seasonal Championship. The FJ40 and Cherokee can be earned by completing the Cross-Country Endurance and Cross-Country Odyseey seasonal championships respectively.
Finally, there’s also a Hot Wheels Seasonal Championship where you can unlock the Chevrolet ZR2.
Photo Challenge: #IntoTheBaja
Sticking with the off-road theme this week’s Photo Challenge requires you to photograph the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT at the Horizon Baja Outpost. Completing the Photo Challenge unlocks the Dial Up Modem car horn.
Treasure Hunt: Dune Buggy
There’s another Treasure Hunt to solve this week with the following clue: “Only a buggy could get so muddy and leave your opponents across the country.”
