Forza Horizon 5 Season Change: Dead Like Me

Forza Horizon 5 Season Trade: Useless Like Me

As Series 26 — “Dia de Muertos” — goes on, Forza Horizon 5’s month-long celebration of the scary season enters its second week.

The Festival is celebrating Hallowe’en, which is known as “Day of the Dead” in Spanish, by giving the world a makeover that includes elements from the actual celebrations.

Nowhere is this more evident than in the town of Mulege, which features a nighttime drone display, an abundance of marigolds, and properly colored alebrijes and calaveritas.

The four-week season, which officially concludes on November 9—FH5’s second anniversary—features a ton of themed activities. You can obtain an Evolving World Accolade by collecting all four of the new automobiles, which include the most sought vehicle.

Along with the free automobiles, there is a new DLC pack—the third in the past four months—for players to purchase, and the most recent update introduced a dozen new Achievements for you to complete.

Series 26: Dia de Muertos

This month there are two expensive and rare Ferraris that are up for grabs, neither of which are brand-new to the game.

The Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso comes in first place and receives 80 points. It is still one of the best methods to encircle a V12 with a lot of metal.

The vehicle, the last to carry the 250 moniker to date, is powered by a three-liter Colombo engine with 240 horsepower. It was designed as the ideal, two-seat grand tourer, which was unusual for a Ferrari of the day.

You can choose the F8 Tributo, a last Ferrari, after you reach 160 points.

The name of this vehicle gives away its purpose: it was created as an homage to the eight-cylinder Ferrari engine before it was replaced with more environmentally friendly blown sixes and electric motors.

It has a 3.9-liter F154 V8 engine that produces 710 horsepower without the use of forced induction or electricity, making it a critically endangered species.

Series 26 Autumn/Storm Season Rewards

Due to a Playground mistake, this week’s playlist awards are a little unusual.

The second-generation Meyers Manx buggy, which is included in the first reward and costs 20 points, is provided exactly as anticipated.

It’s the company’s first new vehicle in 60 years, and it updates the iconic “Big Red” with an electric drivetrain.

It is also significantly more powerful than the original vehicle thanks to a single electric engine with 200 horsepower that drives the back wheels. You may test it out in the Monthly Rivals this Series.

You may purchase a car at the Autoshow for just 42,000 Cr for 40 points. The Subaru Impreza WRX ’15 that has been mistakenly labeled as “Exclusive” is that vehicle.

In light of it, PG will send all players the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing as a concession.

Series 26 will resume for two more weeks till Thursday, November 9 at the same time as Autumn, until 14:30 UTC on Thursday, October 26.

Series 26 Autumn Playlist: Forzathon Events

The 1963 Volkswagen Beetle, which is famous in the Mexican setting of this week’s Forzathon Weekly Challenge, is probably the game’s main vehicle.

Own and operate the Vocho to launch Beloved Beetle, followed by a series of missions that must be completed quickly for five Playlist points.

Spend 25,000cr on Beetle upgrades first, then paint the body of the vehicle. As long as you complete these two objectives in the correct order, you don’t actually need to leave the game and return to the map.

To finish the event, take the Beetle for a spin and get three Sideswipe Skills by ramming the car’s side into whatever that can be destroyed. Additionally, if you own the Casa Solariega player house, you’ll receive double the normal 80 Forzathon Points.

Weekly Challenge: Beloved Beetle

  • Car: Volkswagen Beetle ’63
    • Chapter 1: Own and drive the Volkswagen Beetle ’63

As per normal, there are seven Daily Challenges to accomplish for one Playlist point, with one new challenge debuting every day at 1430UTC.

To finish Calavroom, you must first win a Road Race in any B Class (601-700PI) Datsun, or as there is only one Datsun in the game, a B Class example of that!

Next, drive a Nissan Pulsar GTi-R and get three stars in Speed Zones at the Speed of Light.

After that, you must finish a Horizon Tour, which is a Road Trip. Be aware that you must have access to internet multiplayer in order to participate in this multiplayer event.

Starting on Sunday, the Hot Wheels Bone Shaker will reach 100 mph to display its Twin Turbone.

To finish Alebrijeep, drive any Jeep to Mulege.

Ace Van-Tura demands you to utilize any Vans & Utility vehicle to crash into ten cactuses in order to acquire Smactus Skills. Really.

Series 26 Autumn Playlist: Season Events

Eight tasks are returned to the solo Playlist after a shuffle; this week’s challenges include two EventLabs, three Seasonal Championships, and three PR Stunts.

The same kind of vehicle is needed for each of the three PR stunts, which this week is any B Class (601-700PI) Renault. Even though the events are all distinct from one another, you can complete them all in the same car because the targets are all manageable. Each event awards two points and a Super Wheelspin.

Both the 100,000pt barrier at the Las Dunas Drift Zone and the 99 mph target for Pequeno Puente are trivial to reach, even when using the handbrake in a front-wheel drive vehicle (and are lower targets than a recent Challenge in an identical car).

Though the 195 mph objective is essentially the stadium structure itself, you’ll need to aim carefully for the Stadium Jump target; approach the jump at a sharp angle to travel the distance safely.

The environmental improvements in this week’s EventLab races are significant, but the driving isn’t all that exciting. Each is worth the normal three points upon completion, plus a bonus prize.

Self Sabotage – Vehicular Therapy is a custom course close to Mulege that is much less time-consuming than the name suggests. You must finish your laps in any B Class (601-700PI) Offroad vehicle in order to unlock the Forza LINK greeting “I’m in the Zone!”.

The Del Mar City course, which this week uses D Class (500PI) Classic Sports Cars, can be found a little ways to the west. Complete the challenge to receive a Super Wheelspin.

Each of the three Seasonal Championships is a three-race competition with Highly Skilled AI. You’ll start each race in ninth place (while the AI lines up in finishing order), and by the conclusion of the competition, you’ll need to be in first place overall. If you do, each event will get you five points and a bonus car.

For A Class (701-800PI) automobiles sporting the Dodge SRT logo, Natural Habitat is a Street Racing event. If any NPC traffic is present, a Porsche 944 will win. Additionally held on paved surfaces, Pocket Pandamonium requires a D Class (500PI) vehicle from the special “Microcar Madness” bucket and awards a Renault Megane R26.R for triumph.

Last but not least is the Escaping the Heat Cross Country event, so if you want the points and the Nissan GT-R ’17 prize, make sure your B Class (601-700PI) Super Hot Hatch has some dirt tires, good suspension travel, and all-wheel drive.

This week’s sole multiplayer event is The Trial, which as usual requires an Xbox Live subscription to access on a console but is free to play on a computer.

A team of up to six humans are competing against a six-person “Unbeatable” AI squad in a best-of-three series. However, the AI is typically relatively defeatable; the issues are frequently caused by people.

Apart from a 50 point bonus for winning as a tie-breaker, each player on each team receives 100 points for every opponent they defeat (as displayed on the live leaderboard), but nothing for defeating a teammate.

As a result, you’ll need to work together to support one another and inflict as much agony as possible on the AI, rather than destroying your own teammates or taking the lead while everyone else struggles.

Only vehicles manufactured in the 1980s are eligible for B Class (601-700PI) this week, which should help, but the fact that it’s a Dirt Racing Series challenge could present some difficulties in tight turns.

However, winning in two races should be simple enough, earning 10 points and a bonus 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer MR.

The Trial: Trial Mix

  • Car: B Class, 1980s
  • Location: Gran Caldera
  • Challenge: Win the Championship
  • Reward: 10 points, Mitsubishi Lancer MR ’06

Series 26 Autumn Playlist: Challenges

The new Collectibles event coincides with the normal Photo Challenge this week, making it a two-Challenge week.

Tank, the avatar of the game, has a brand-new appearance as the Collectible while dressed to the nines. These pinatas, which are about the size of a freezer, are scattered across the Horizon Festival grounds, and busting 10 of them will net you three points and a “Welcome to Mexico” Forza LINK welcome.

This week’s #PhotoChallenge, titled “Stargazer,” calls for three specific components.

First and foremost, you’ll need a Renault, which shouldn’t be a problem considering that all of this week’s PR Stunts call for one. Then proceed to Mulege’s Star27 mural, which is the painted wall at the northeast corner of the town’s central market and is currently surrounded by several marigold stands and a large skull.

Wait till nighttime or use the Photo Mode effects before taking your picture. Along with the Mexican Race Suit costume, it is worth two points.

Collectibles: Tanks for the Show

  • Cars: Any
  • Location: Horizon Mexico Festival
  • Challenge: Smash ten Tank Mariachis at the Horizon Mexico Festival
  • Reward: 3 points, “Welcome to Mexico” Forza LINK

Photo Challenge: #Stargazer

  • Cars: Renault (any)
  • Location: Mulege
  • Challenge: Photograph any Renault at the Star27 mural in Mulege while it’s night-time
  • Reward: 2 points, Mexican Race Suit

Series 26 Autumn Playlist: Monthly Events

The two Monthly Events will remain in situ all Series long, giving you four points apiece — one point per event to each season — regardless of when you do so in the four-week window.

Each features new-to-game vehicles, and consist of Rivals-type events where outright pace isn’t strictly necessary; you only need to set a clean time, so avoid hitting solid objects or using the Rewind feature.

Monthly Rivals puts you into the “iconic” Nissan Tsuru for a lap of the compact Chihuahua Circuit, which ought not to be too hard even if the car is a bit sloppy on the handling front.

It’s another point-to-point challenge for Forza EV — ramping up the difficulty, as a messed-up run requires a restart — with the dirt-based Desierto Trail hosting the Meyers Manx 2.0.

Forza EV: Desierto Trail

  • Cars: Meyers Manx 2.0 (provided)
  • Location: Colinas Aridas
  • Challenge: Post a Clean Lap
  • Reward: 4 points (1 added to each season)

Monthly Rivals: Chihuahua Circuit

  • Cars: Nissan Tsuru (provided)
  • Location: Hotel Mirador
  • Challenge: Post a Clean Time
  • Reward: 4 points (1 added to each season)

Series 26 Autumn Bonus DLC Events

Each of the two DLC packs include a two-point PR Stunt and a five-point, three-race Seasonal Championship, earning seven bonus points that are not necessary for Playlist completion.

The same vehicle as the PR Stunts on the main map is required for both PR Stunts once more: a B Class (601-700PI) Renault. A Super Wheelspin is given for every stunt.

In order to pass past the Frozen Rush Speed Zone in Hot Wheels and the Duna Escarpada Speed Trap in Rally Adventure, you must do 100 mph in each game. With a straight, clean run, neither is particularly challenging.

At the Hot Wheels seasonal, Slip and Slide, which offers a 1999 Lotus Elise for victory, A Class (701-800PI) BMWs are included. You’re Doing Super, Sport! in Rally Adventure requires a C Class (501-600PI) vehicle from the Chevrolet SS stable (or Super Sport by the Microsoft language filter), and the prize is a Ford Racing Puma.

  • Location: Hot Wheels Ice Cauldron

Series 26 Autumn Forzathon Shop

The Forzathon Shop theme for this week is American V8s in highly modified versions of cars made abroad.

The Hot Wheels Nash Metropolitan, a creation so outrageous it was memorialized as a toy car, is this week’s thumbnail vehicle. It is based on the incredibly basic Nash, which was created specifically for the US market in the UK, but it has undergone some quite radical changes.

This consists of a modified body, a specially constructed chassis, and a five-liter V8 in place of the original B Series straight four. The car’s actual name is the “Nashole” (which is painted on the hood), although it has been somewhat changed to appease Microsoft’s sensibilities.

Once more, Formula Drift takes the lead position with the FD Maloo. This sentence contains a whole nest of “based on” clauses: the 6.2-liter supercharged slide truck from Australia is based on the HSV Maloo, which is based on the Holden Ute, which is based on the Holden Commodore, which is based on the Chevrolet Camaro.

Since the Nash won’t be offered at the Autoshow, it makes sense to purchase it now for 1000FP. Once more, the Drift car costs 300FP as opposed to the standard Autoshow price of 300,000cr.

This week’s other store items cost 75FP each and are the Macarena Emote and Festival Sombrero. The 60FP Wheelspin and a 150FP Super Wheelspin are present in their usual locations.
