Forza Horizon 5 Series 5 Summer: Festival Playlist, rewards, & more


It's a new Series in FH5 as Forza Horizon 5 Series 5 Summer has arrived!

There are new Series Progress cars to win, a new theme, and of course a brand new Festival Playlist to complete.

Let's take a look and see what there is to win!

Forza Horizon 5 Series 5 Summer

Series 5 is here and will run for four weeks. Players have the chance to earn two cars as Series Progress rewards.

In Series 5 they are the Mini '65 Forza Edition (80 points) and Porsche 917 LH (160 points).

Series 5 Summer rewards

Along with those two cars players can also get the McLaren 720S Spider for completing the Seasonal Championship and the Gymkhana 10 Focus for completing The Trial.

There is also the Hoonigan Group A as a Speed Zone reward, the Aventador '12 for completing the new Danger Sign, and the #777 Corvette for doing the Speed Trap.

That's a lot of cars to earn!

There are also two Wheelspins and several cosmetics to win, including a Green Pinata Outfit.

Photo Challenge

This week's Photo Challenge is #PRtaaayTime.

That's because Series 5 is a Horizon Rush Takeover, which means more PR Stunts, Speed Zones, and Danger Signs!

To complete it you need to snap a Track Toys car at the Horizon Rush outpost mainstage.

#Forzathon Weekly Challenge

This week it's all about the drift. You'll need to own and drive the 2013 Formula Drift #777 Chevrolet Corvette for Chapter 1.

Chapter 2 asks you to earn six stars in Drift Zones using the Chevy. Then it's 10 Ultimate Drift or E-Drift skills. The final chapter asks you to earn 100,000 points at Drift Zones within two minutes while in the Chevy.

The #777 Chevrolet Corvette was NOT part of the Formula Drift Pack, and costs 300,000 credits from the Autoshow, which is a bit of a steep investment.

However, as the #Forzathon Weekly Challenge gets you a chunky five points it is probably worth grabbing.
