The September patch for Forza Horizon 5 has brought some exciting updates to the game, including new cars, quality of life improvements, and enhancements to the EventLab feature. While Forza Motorsport may be on the horizon, Horizon 5 continues to receive updates to keep the gameplay fresh and engaging.
One of the highlights of this patch is the addition of seven festival playlist cars, with a focus on BMW and Rivian. This includes cars like the 1996 BMW 850CSi, 2021 BMW M3, and the all-electric 2022 Rivian R1S and R1T. These new vehicles will surely add even more excitement to the races.
The EventLab feature has also received attention in this update. Players can now enjoy a new user-generated content section, allowing them to create and share their own custom events with the community. Additionally, the EventLab Island has been introduced, a sandbox island with a 2km x 2km size where players can experiment with different props and create unique experiences.
The patch also includes quality of life improvements and bug fixes for EventLab, ensuring a smoother and more enjoyable creative experience for players. The Blueprint builder now includes a Favourites Tab, allowing for easier access to created events, and players can now search for unlimited EventLab events. More attachment nodes and checkpoint options have also been added to enhance event customization.
Car customization has received some love in this update as well. Players can now customize the body kits of the 2015 BMW i8 and 2018 BMW M5 with AC Schnitzer body parts, as well as adding a Forza Widebody Kit to the 1995 BMW 850CSi. Additionally, there are 20 new Vorsteiner rims available for customization.
Forza Horizon 5 also introduces the “Horizon Creatives” Limited Timed Series Features, starting from September 14th until October 12th. This includes evolving world treasure hunt obstacle courses and a flask collectible, which can also be utilized as a standalone prop in EventLab.
Lastly, players can look forward to unlocking various cars through the Festival Playlist rewards, including the 2023 BMW M2, 2022 BMW i4, 2022 BMW iX, and the 2022 Rivian R1S and R1T. There is also a loyalty reward car, the 2021 Chevrolet E-Ray, available from October 5th for all players accessing and playing 2023 Forza Motorsport.
With this September patch, Forza Horizon 5 continues to deliver exciting content and improvements to keep players engaged and entertained in the vibrant world of Horizon.
