As many of you probably know already, Playground Games has already released Explore the Horizon, Forza Horizon 5’s newest update. Along with many quality-of-life improvements and fixes, the update introduces some new cars and a bunch of events, alongside their respective rewards.
The new events are added to the game via Festival Playlists and the first one of the Explore the Horizon series has just finished earlier today. If you missed any of the cars that were available for one week during the first Festival Playlist, don’t fret, as you’ll be able to pick them up for in-game currency from the Autoshow.

But Forza Horizon 5 players rarely have a moment of respite if they want to collect everything these Festival Playlists add to the game. That being said, we have another Festival Playlist taking over Playground Games’ racing title today.

The Autumn / Wet Season runs from June 1 through June 8 and brings a few new cars to the game, which will not be available in the Autoshow, as well as some seasonal rewards tied to a bunch of new events that seem fun to play.

If you’ve been grinding Forza Horizon 5 for months, then you already know the drill. The new Festival Playlist doesn’t really bring anything new in terms of events or structure. Most of the rewards are different, but many of the events are being rotated from update to update.

First off, for the next week or so, Forza Horizon 5 players who participate in the new Festival Playlist are given the chance to unlock two amazing cars, the 1986 Ford F-150 XLT Lariat and the 2022 Extreme E #44 X44. Both are seasonal exclusive cars and will not be available in the Autoshow anytime soon.

The Forzathon events for the Explore the Horizon update include four challenges that must be completed in sequence and reward players with 5 points each. Also, Forzathon daily challenges will be available to complete too and will award players with 1 point each.

As far as the monthly events go, if you don’t already know, the total points from these events are divided by four when applied to individual seasons. Completing the two events available this month will apply 1 point for each EV, which means 2 points maximum will be applied to each season.

Keep in mind that you must post a clean lap to complete Rivals events. It’s also important to mention that cars are stock and provided as free rentals.

These are available for 80 points and 160 points, respectively. Your points accumulated across all four seasons allow players to unlock these cars, along with other rewards that are available during each Festival Playlist.
