Forza Horizon 5 Series 2 Autumn: Festival playlist, challenges, championships!

Series 2 of Forza Horizon 5 continues with Autumn! Here's the rundown of this week's events and prizes. There's a stack of great rewards this week!

The Forza team have released an update that should fix many of the multiplayer and online issues. So if you've avoided playing Horizon 5 a few days due to the frustration, now might be the time to jump back in!

Playlist completion rewards

For the series as a whole, the playlist rewards are the Gingerbread Outfit for 120 playlist points and the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ for 200 points. Both are exclusive rewards, so you'll want to grab these!

As for the Autumn season, there's two more exclusive cars as playlist rewards. These are the Koenigsegg One:1, named for its amazing power to weight ratio, and the Exocet Off-Road Forza Edition. Earn these two for 25 and 45 playlist points respectively.

The Horizon Secret Santa continues. As players globally gift more cars, we'll all work towards unlocking the Peel P50 for everyone! There's also a lovely Santa outfit to win too.

Season Events

The Playground Games "Snowball Fight" prize is The Cholla from Penhall. The Horizon Tour co-op championships also offer playlist points as usual.

PR Stunts

The PR stunts this season are the Cascadas Danger Sign, the Costa Rocosa Speed Zone, and the Pyramid of the Sun Speed Trap. I topped the leaderboard on that speed trap for a while! The trick I've found is to come at it from the speed zone to the north around the Pyramid of the Moon and then cut across to the dirt track.

As with all the seasonal PR Stunts in Forza Horizon 5, you'll need to check that your car is eligible and in the right class. The menu button in the Festival Playlist gives you the car restrictions! Each one earns you a wheelspin.


The seasonal championships are: Carol of the Bel Airs, winning you the Holiday Sweater clothing item, Drivin' Home for Xmas, with the "Merry Christmas" Link message reward, and Getting Hyped, which has the Lamborghini Aventador J as its prize.

The Aventador J is an exclusive car, based on the original Aventador but with no roof or windscreen. It's a great looking vehicle!


There's a Photo Challenge this week. Take a photo of the 2002 Mazda RX-7 Spirit R Type-A at the giant Holiday Tree in Guanajuato. You'll find the tree next to the Basílica Colegiata de Nuestra Señora de Guanajuato. That's the big yellow church near the centre!

The Horizon Open "Dream Team" has a 25,000 credit reward, and the Eliminator offers 50,000 credits for completing this week's goal. There's a collectibles challenge also, Frosty Friends, which will probably involve smashing snowmen. The reward is the Snowman Outfit Hat, to match the prize from the Trial!
