It's almost time for the next series update in Forza Horizon 5! As usual, series 5 adds a bunch of new cars to the mix, including a selection available via the free Festival Playlist. However, before the playlist changes over, Playground has added some new accessibility options to the game.
Starting today, March 1, American Sign Language (ASL) and British Sign Language (BSL) support have been added as options for cutscenes in Forza Horizon 5. Playground Games has long been keen on adding as many accessibility options as possible, and this is their latest step with Horizon 5.
In terms of new Festival Playlist content for this series, it's quite a varied selection. Focusing on the cars, the summer season delivers the KTM X-Bow GT4, the latest extreme track toy for Forza Horizon 5. It's available March 3rd through March 9th.
During the stormy autumn season, things move on to the rather fitting Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro. This all-terrain SUV will likely come in real handy in the wet season, and is sure to be a great option for cross country racing. It's available March 10th through March 16th.
Noble arrives for the winter season with the M600, a mid-engined supercar that'll go toe-to-toe with the established names. It's lightweight and incredibly powerful, so it'll be best to stick to road racing with this one. This one is available March 17th through March 23rd.
Finally, for spring, we're getting a newer version of the iconic Nissan GTR. This 2020 Nismo model comes with faster acceleration, along with better cornering and braking ability. The Nissan GTR is always a solid choice for most racing disciplines, and we expect that to be no different with this 2020 version. It's available March 24th through March 30th.
The reward for reaching 80 points during the whole series is the Mini Cooper S Forza Edition. This souped-up hatchback offers up 235hp, so go steady in the heat of busy traffic, or you might go flying.
Car Pass Additions
If you're a Forza Horizon 5 Car Pass owner, four new vehicles will be added over the course of the series. These are the 1986 Ford Mustang SVO, the 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, the 2006 Noble M400, and finally, the 2017 Ferrari #25 Corse Clienti 488 Challenge edition.
Elsewhere, there are some other interesting changes coming to Forza Horizon 5. Chief among which is the freshly decorated stadium area, which becomes a huge stunt carnival during series 5. Sticking with the stunt theme, 16 new PR stunts will be added during the series as well, 12 of which are limited time and can only be completed during series 5.
