Upgrade Heroes Autumn Festival Playlist: Rewards, cars, challenges & more

It's Thursday, which means a new week in Forza Horizon 5 and the start of the Upgrade Heroes Autumn festival playlist. A new playlist means plenty of fresh prizes and new cars to be won, as well as challenges to complete.

So what does Playground Games have in store for players this week? Let's take a look at the complete festival playlist.

Upgrade Heroes Autumn festival playlist

The new festival playlist kicks off at 10:30am ET / 3:30pm BST on Thursday 29 June.

As usual, it will run until the same time on 6 July. As the second week in the series, you won't be unlocking your Series Reward cars this week unless you are truly maximising your points every week. In which case you can get that Pagani Huayra BC this week!

Rewards

This week's season progress cars are the GMC Syclone (20 points) and the HDT VK Commodore (40 points). The Syclone is an exclusive car, meaning you can only get it by unlocking it here.

But these aren't the only cars you can get hold of this week. Completing The Trial will get you the Chevy Camaro '18, while the Seasonal Championships will give you the Datsun 510 and the Dodge Charger '69.

There is also plenty of Donut Media cosmetics you can win, from a hoodie to car horns. You can get three Super Wheelspins from the PR Stunts this week too, and two more if you have activated the Rally Adventure and Hot Wheels events.

As ever, the first chapter is just to own and drive the car. Chapter 2 asks players to earn a Hard Charger skill with it. The third challenge is to earn two stars on the Mountain Pass Speed Zone with it before finally winning either a road or dirt race in A class with it.

This week's photo challenge is #LowRider. You have to snap the 1964 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport 409 at the La Casa Solariega player house.
