Forza Horizon 5 continues to grow with Playground Games readying its Series 6 Update for release today. A new Horizon Story featuring Robert Glenn sees the Drift Club coming to Mexico from Britain and adding new challenges. If you’ve built the Horizon Rush Outpost, then Drift Club Mexico can be undertaken immediately with seven different cars to drive.
Along with Drift Club themed clothes, completing all of the different chapters unlocks the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 with the ability to swap between Rear Wheel Drive and All Wheel Drive. Furthermore, progress is made towards the new Festival Playlist which offers new cars, horns and clothes to unlock.
These include the 2012 Ascari KZ1R when playing from March 31st to April 6th in the Summer “Wet” Season; the 2021 McLaren 765LT Coupe from the Autumn “Storm” Season when playing from April 7th to April 13th; the 2018 ATS GT, available from April 14th to April 20th during the Winter “Dry” Season; and the 2014 McLaren 650S Spider available from April 21st to April 27th in the Spring “Hot” Season.
If that weren’t enough, Horizon Open sees the addition of Custom Racing with players able to select different parameters (like PI Class and race type) when matchmaking. It also receives a new progression system for Open Racing, Drifting, Playground Games and Custom Racing with XP earned also going towards your player level. Badges are available as new rewards which provide different icons in Horizon Life Free Roam, race standing and Leaderboards (including the new Horizon Open Leaderboard which tracks the amount of XP earned in the same).
The Series 6 Update goes live today on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC. For more details on Forza Horizon 5, check out our review here.
