Headling features of the upcoming update include nine new cars (with extra focus being given to the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400), an overhaul for Horizon Open online racing, new EventLab creator features, new cosmetics and player Badges, and much more.

Playground Games also teased future plans for Forza Horizon 5, including Series 7 adding well over 200 new championships to Horizon Tour. Playground Games will also reveal more information on the first Forza Horizon 5 expansion in the near future.

  • Horizon Open overhaul. Horizon Open refers to Forza Horizon 5's suite of online racing and events, and it's enjoying an overhaul with the arrival of Series 6, including:
    • The Eliminator is now separate from Horizon Open and is easier to access
    • A new standalone progression system for Horizon Open, including Playground Games, Open Racing, Drifting, and Custom Racing. Any completed events in any of these categories will accrue XP toward this progression system, which can be viewed in the Horizon Open screen. Players can earn Badges as rewards for hitting level milestones
    • Custom Racing, which lets you specify your preferred race type and PI class, and makes it easier to jump into your favorite events and races. Convoys can also join Custom Racing together
    • A new Leaderboard tab, which lets you compare your earned Horizon Open XP and Badges to your friends and the entire FH5 community
