A new update is launching tomorrow, August 16, in Forza Horizon 5. It’s all about Rami’s Racing History and it’s inviting players to experience the rich heritage of Mexico in automotive manufacturing. There’s also a new Horizon story coming and a Festival Playlist that celebrates different eras of car culture.

Made in Mexico

The new Horizon Story titled “Made in Mexico” is composed of eight chapters. It explores the major eras of car culture and manufacturing in Mexico. Players have the chance to get behind the wheel and experience a wide range of cars that shaped the racing history of the country. By the way, it starts with none other than the home-grown sports car 2017 VUHL 05RR.

Made in Mexico can be unlocked after finishing the first Expedition. In addition to new Accolades, this new story also unlocks various rewards, like the Farid Rueda Lion Jumper for completing the opening chapters and the Lion Cap for finishing the closing chapters. Players can also get the 1971 Meyers Manx Forza Edition when they get three stars on all chapters.

Festival Playlist

From August 18 to September 15, the Festival Playlist celebrates four unique eras of cars inspired by Rami’s Racing History. These are:

  • Week 1: It’s all about the cars that predate the 1970s.
  • Week 2: Experience driving legacy in cars from 1970 to 1989.
  • Week 3: It’s all about those modern classics with cars from 1990 to 2009.
  • Week 4: Drive to the future in today’s cars from 2010 onward.

For the layout of events, players are likely to notice a small change. In particular, the location of the monthly activities has been swapped with the Hot Wheels events. This is to make sure that players can immediately go into the latest Rivals content.

Beginning with Rami’s Racing History, the Festival Playlist is now going to have its own voice-overs. English VO appears in the Festival Playlist and in the Made in Mexico Horizon Story. Localized VOs for the Festival Playlist and the new Horizon Story are set to arrive in a future update.

Game Fixes

Aside from the new content, there are also fixes and improvements:

  • An issue that caused players to load into the game with a different car than the one they were previously driving has been fixed.
  • Fixed the “Testing the Limits” Accolade not registering completion upon reaching 250mph.
  • Retroactive completion for the Series 9, Week 1, and Week 2 Treasure Hunts.
  • Fixed an exploit that allowed electric vehicles to have excessive horsepower.
  • Updated the door handle of the 2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo.
