Forza Horizon 5 Season Change: Deathly Hallows

Forza Horizon 5 Season Alternate: Deathly Hallows

With a new week and a new set of Playlist events, Forza Horizon 5’s newest Series continues to provide players with another week of spectral happenings.

In honor of the Mexican “Day of the Dead” celebration, Series 26, officially named “Dia de Muertos,” brings a little world makeover along with the month’s new challenges.

When you visit the village of Mulege, which you’ll do multiple times on different challenges throughout the Playlist, you’ll notice a vibrant change because it’s decorated with customary Day of the Dead decorations.

This includes heaps of the festival’s flowers strewn throughout the streets, marigold vendors, and enormous, adorned skulls (calaeritas) and animal carvings (alebrijes). Rally Adventure offers a drone light show as well as other nighttime attractions.

This week, you’ll be able to participate in that as well thanks to the complimentary delivery of two distinctive pieces of apparel: the Dia de Muertos Dress and Suit. Fortunately, that is also the central idea of a Playlist challenge.

There are other themed events on the Playlist, including the chance to win four brand-new cars. Completing these four will also give you an Evolving World Accolade. There is also a new DLC pack available for purchase that adds four more vehicles.

Series 26: Dia de Muertos

Through this month’s events, you have one more chance to obtain two vehicles that aren’t available for purchase in the game. Both are red, uncommon, and valuable—especially in the Auction House—despite neither being particularly new to the game.

The most desirable is up first; a Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso is yours with 80 points.

This is an amazing two-seat grand tourer that combines legendary beauty and power with a body built by Pininfarina and housing the renowned Colombo V12.

It is the final vehicle to use the 250 designation before the 275/330 models take its place. The 250 moniker refers to the roughly 250cc swept volume of each V12 cylinder.

That and the 160-point vehicle are over 60 years apart, but even that is a type of last-generation Ferrari.

Given that forced induction and electrification are the only ways to produce power that is emissions-friendly, the F8 Tributo is, as its name partially suggests, a tribute to Ferrari’s eight-cylinder engine.

The F8 marks the end of an era, packing 710 horsepower from its 3.9-liter F154 V8, which is 100 horsepower less than its turbocharged, hybrid V6 replacement.

Series 26 Winter/Dry Season Rewards

This week, the Ford Bronco Raptor, a hot version of one of the game’s cover cars, goes up for grabs.

Although the Raptor and the standard Bronco have many similarities, the Raptor is much more powerful. First up, a brand-new three-liter V6 with 418 horsepower that is shared with the second-generation Ranger Raptor.

Most significantly, the Braptor has undergone a number of chassis improvements, including a whole new suspension system, to allow it go off-road miles more successfully.

This is built on the same chassis as the rally raid vehicle, but it has an eight-inch wider track and more than five inches of increased ground clearance. New 17-inch wheels with massive 37-inch off-road BFGoodrich tires improve that.

If you achieve 40 points, you will be able to choose the Plymouth Fury, a vehicle that gained notoriety because to its prominent (albeit quite limited) portrayal as the possessive vehicle in Christine.

The Fury isn’t for sale during the Autoshow, so this is a great opportunity to obtain a unique vehicle.

Thursday, November 2 at 1430UTC is when Winter will end, and on Thursday, November 9 at the same time, Series 26 will resume.

Series 26 Winter Playlist: Season Events

This week, there are seven tasks on the solo playlist, two Seasonal Championships, two EventLabs, and three PR Stunts.

For all of the PR Stunts, you’ll need an A Class (701-800PI) Toyota, though you may want to do a few builds to figure out the speed limit for the Speed Zone and the distance for the Danger Sign.

But none of the three targets are especially difficult. At the Hotel Danger Sign, you can practically tumble off the ramp to score 90 meters, but at the Oceano Azul Speed Trap, reaching 117 mph basically means you have had enough run-up.

Although it’s a little difficult in the Atlantes de Tula Speed Zone, if you keep it on the road, you should hit 113 mph on your first attempt.

Both EventLab races have distinct course layouts in key game areas and are worth the standard three points plus an extra prize for finishing.

As the name suggests, Ek’Balam Rally Cross GP2 is a specially designed rally stage that winds through and around the Ek’Balam site. A C Class (501-600PI) Classic Rally vehicle is required for the competition, which also grants a Puebla Mexican Suit.

Neon City Circuit Race is a bespoke circuit around Guanajuato with lots of detours, so you’ll need to be on your game. We advise against taking the marked line in your B Class (601-700PI) Volkswagen and instead navigating through the containers for all but the last one at the marked hairpin. You’ll receive a Super Wheelspin as payment for winning.

The Seasonal Championships consist of three races against Highly Skilled AI, as per usual. You will begin each race in ninth place, with the AI placing you in the order of finishers. To win, you must finish first in the points table after each of the three races. For every event you win, you will receive five points and a bonus vehicle.

A Subaru BRZ is up for grabs in this Street Racing event for B Class (601-700PI) automobiles from the 2010s decade, so keep an eye out for any NPC traffic. The event is taking place in Lurking in the Jungle. With a Renault Clio for the win, you’ll be driving B Class (601-700PI) Offroad vehicles cross country for Perfect Match.

This week has two multiplayer events: The Trial and Seasonal Playground Games. While participation on the PC is free, access to these on the console requires an Xbox Live subscription.

You’ll be playing a best-of-three game of vehicle tag against Team Flag Rush in this week’s Seasonal Playground Games.

In this scenario, one side attempts to transport flags from a pickup point to a target zone, and the other team switches over after defending the target by tagging the flag-carriers. In the event of a tie, the team that scores the most flags in the allocated time wins. Otherwise, the side who scores the most flags the quickest wins.

This will require you to play up to three rounds, with the possibility of three points and a Saleen S1; if you lose the first, it’s quicker to merely throw the second.

A team of up to six humans competes in a best-of-three series called The Trial against a “Unbeatable” AI squad of six. That’s not as scary as it seems since, more often than not, people rather than AI are the problem.

Aside from a 50-point bonus for winning as a tie-breaker, each player on each team receives 100 points for each opponent they defeat (as seen on the real leaderboard). However, they receive nothing for defeating a teammate.

The ideal course of action is to work together, preventing the AI rather than your fellow humans from impeding each other’s progress.

This week’s races are peculiar, so it will probably be harder said than done. If your teammates remember to adjust their cars, they probably won’t be able to handle them.

For the event, which consists of a three-lap race at the Oval, a terrible Volcan Sprint point-to-point, and a one-lap run of the Horizon Festival Circuit, you’ll need an S1 Class (801-900PI) Chevrolet or Dodge.

As a team, you must defeat the AI to win ten points and receive an Ariel Nomad.

Seasonal Playground Games: Powerlifting

  • Car: C Class, Classic Muscle
  • Location: Aerodromo en la Selva
  • Challenge: Complete a Seasonal Playground Games event.
  • Reward: 3 points, Saleen S1 ’18

The Trial: Battling it Out

  • Car: S1 Class, Chevrolet/Dodge
  • Location: Estadio Horizon
  • Challenge: Win the Championship
  • Reward: 10 points, Ariel Nomad

Series 26 Winter Playlist: Challenges

This week there are three challenges: the standard Photo Challenge, a Treasure Hunt, and another multiplayer event via Horizon Open.

Playground Games is the subject once more when you play games in Horizon Open. During Team Flag Rush rounds, the goal is to deny five flags.

Fortunately, you don’t have to wait for the event to appear in Horizon Open—we were able to accomplish this during the Seasonal Playground Games event above. To finish the challenge, simply tag five enemy cars that are displaying flags while you are defending.

Undoubtedly, this will result in constant camping at the pickup site, but if you succeed in all five denials, you’ll receive two points and a Parade Horn.

Mulege is hosting a number of events this week, one of which is the #NewHome Photo Challenge. You’ll need to drive a Nissan Silvia Ks Aero ’98 to the town’s Casa Bella player house.

This has a little bit more intricacy. After positioning your avatar outside the car using the Photo Effects Mode presets, simply snap a picture to receive two points and a “Last Man Standing” Forza LINK welcome.

This week’s rather simple hint for the Treasure Hunt is, “Catch up to your prey across the country as this big cat takes first place.”

That implies, as one might anticipate, that you have to win any Cross Country series event in any Jaguar, so choose your favorite leaper and win any of the green races. You will then receive the Treasure Hint, which is a red map marker zone that roughly locates the Treasure Chest.

That is, of course, in Mulege, on the town’s east side, this week. The chest itself is situated directly in front of the mission building, next to the XP board marker that you can find there. Smash it to win 100,000cr and three points.

Horizon Open: Access Denied

  • Cars: Any
  • Location: Horizon Open Playground Games
  • Challenge: Deny five flags in Team Flag Rush
  • Reward: 2 points, Parade Horn

Photo Challenge: #NewHome

  • Cars: Nissan Silvia Ks Aero ’98
  • Location: Casa Bella, Mulege
  • Challenge: Photograph the Nissan Silvia outside the Casa Bella Player Home while your character stands outside the car
  • Reward: 2 points, “Last Man Standing” Forza LINK

Treasure Hunt: Sinking Your Teeth In

  • Cars: Jaguar
  • Location: Cross Country Series (any)
  • Challenge: Win a Cross Country race in any Jaguar; find and smash the Treasure Chest
  • Reward: 3 points, 100,000cr

Series 26 Winter Playlist: Monthly Events

You still have this week and next to finish the two Monthly Events if you haven’t already. It doesn’t matter when you finish them within the four-week period; each earns you four points toward your Series total, one point for each event in each season.

This month’s two events include two Rivals-style challenges along with brand-new vehicles, but lap times aren’t the goal. Avoid utilizing the Rewind option or striking solid things; all you need to do is establish a clean time.

While the Meyers Manx 2.0 is competing in the Forza EV challenge at the point-to-point dirt course of Desierto Trail, you will be racing the Nissan Tsuru around a lap of the small Chihuahua Circuit in the Monthly Rivals event.

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 Winter Bonus DLC Events

Players who possess the DLC expansions will be happy to have the opportunity to gain seven bonus points in each of the two add-on locations, especially since this is a week heavy on multiplayer games. Those without them don’t need them to finish their playlists.

Again, the same vehicle as those on the main map is needed for both PR Stunts, which are worth two points and a Super Wheelspin apiece: an A Class (701-800PI) Toyota.

Hot Wheels and the Horizon Nexus Drift Zone may require a certain drift configuration, but the 105,000 point goal isn’t too difficult. Though it will require a little run-up, the Palm Forest Danger Sign in Rally Adventure may be found by going off-road to the north, aiming it toward the ramp, and aiming to barely reach the river for the 228m target.

Similar to the main map, the Seasonal Championships are three-race series with five points for each race and a bonus car if you finish first in the points standings.

This is a unique opportunity for Street Racing in Rally Adventure. To compete in the Down the Hatch surfaced-road race, which has NPC traffic and rewards winners with a Mercedes A45 AMG, you must drive a C Class (501-600PI) Retro Hot Hatch. Your goal is to win with a BMW M4 ’14 and an A Class (701-800PI) Modern Muscle automobile, smashing the competition in Hot Wheels.

Hot Wheels Drift Zone: Horizon Nexus

  • Car: A Class, Toyota
  • Location: Hot Wheels Horizon Nexus
  • Challenge: 105,000pt
  • Reward: 2 points, Super Wheelspin

  • Challenge: Win the Championship
  • Reward: 5 points, Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG

Series 26 Winter Forzathon Shop

This week’s Forzathon Shop has two extremely powerful British vehicles that are all about speed the British way.

First in the RXC family of track-day specials is the Radical RXC Turbo, which is actually the more sensible option.

It combines a lightweight composite body with a 450 horsepower, turbocharged Ford EcoBoost 3.5-liter V6 engine, much like the rest of the RXC range.

Radical has, however, added additional weight in the form of sound deadening to lessen the impact for drivers who use it on public roads. The lunatics.

Aston Martin’s V12 Vantage S is a much faster, more sophisticated vehicle that joins the Radical.

With over 550 horsepower from a 5.9-liter V12, this grand tourer with a sports edge can reach speeds of over 200 mph while providing the best possible comfort.

The Radical’s 1000FP price indicates that, similar to the other line-leaders this month, it isn’t offered in the Autoshow. You must compare the 250FP pricing to the 240,000cr Autoshow sticker because the Aston Martin is.

This week’s additional items in the store are the 75FP gold leather boots and the Mexican traffic light horn. In their usual locations are the Wheelspin (60FP) and a Super Wheelspin (150FP).
