Forza Horizon 5's 'Day Of The Dead' Update Now Live On Xbox Game Pass

Forza Horizon 5 is celebrating 'Día de Muertos' this year with its new Day of the Dead update - now live on Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Game Pass of course! As you've come to expect from FH these days, the new update is jam-packed with new cars, Festival Playlist challenges, achievements and more.

The team has been shouting from the rooftops about this update's addition of the franchise's most-requested car ever - although it's probably not what you'd expect! The development team has added the 2010 Nissan Tsuru in this update; a Mexican-built sedan that's become synonymous with the region.

You can expect the new Festival Playlist challenges and rewards to begin on October 12th, with the rest of the update already live. We'll drop the full Forza Horizon 5 'Día de Muertos' patch notes down below.
