Forza Horizon 5 kicks off its Winter Wonderland Series, transforming Mexico into a Narnia-like landscape with four weeks of continuous winter. Aptly named "Winter Wonderland," Series 28 introduces a snow-covered map with snow-capped peaks and dry weather, creating a unique driving experience.
The Horizon Stadium undergoes a winter makeover featuring mounds of snow, igloos, a toboggan run, and a special circuit. This seasonal transformation brings a fresh and festive vibe to the game, promising a winter wonderland experience for players.
Series 28 brings back the popular Secret Santa event for the third year, encouraging players to exchange vehicle gifts at a specific location in the Stadium. Participants can earn global bonus rewards, including the Gordon Murray Automotive T.50 and a "secret" car for reaching gifting milestones.
In addition to the seasonal festivities, players can look forward to four new vehicles, including one making its debut in Forza Horizon and three returning favorites. These cars are available as rewards in the Playlist, and collecting all four unlocks an Evolving World Accolade.
A new paid DLC pack, "Fast X," adds excitement with four vehicles from the tenth Fast and Furious film and a three-axle "Flip Car" inspired by the movie's sixth installment.

The Winter Wonderland Series introduces enticing rewards and challenges. Players can earn the Porsche Mission R concept and the 2011 Koenigsegg Agera, both high-performance speed machines, by accumulating points in the winter season.
