Forza Horizon 5 Summer Party

Forza Horizon 5 Summer Party

More great and fun events for those in Forza Horizon 5 as the summer party is heating up and ready to get going, drivers, stay hydrated.

Mexico’s Summer Party is here and what better way to celebrate the sunshine festivities than with 6 unmissable cars, and for those eager to drive into the sunset and beyond, we’ve heard your feedback and permanently extended the night cycle in Forza Horizon 5.

We recognized how much you loved the longer nights during the Midnights at Horizon series and carefully evaluated the best way to prolong the night hours indefinitely without it feeling too stretched overtime. What we’ve landed on is a balance where night-time is noticeably longer than before, but not as long as during Midnights at Horizon. This change was made entirely thanks to your contributions to the Suggestions Hub, the best place to share your Forza Horizon 5 feedback. So, try out the new extended night duration and let us know how you feel about it!

Forza Horizon 5 Summer Party will be available to download from Tuesday, July 18 with series content available to play from Thursday, July 20 until August 17.

Icons of Speed
Available to play on Thursday, July 20, the next Horizon Story introduces you to Icons of Speed. You’ll experience the first chapter once the summer season kicks into gear. Across 8 chapters, team up with Alejandra, the head mechanic at the Horizon Festival, and experience iconic cars across the history of racing as you inspire her spark once more!

2019 Hennessey Camaro Exorcist

Complete the Icons of Speed Horizon Story. Experience the definition of unlimited horsepower on four wheels. The Exorcist is one monstrous car with over 1,000 horses under the hood and 966 lb-ft torque, all courtesy of its powerful 6.2-liter V8 engine. The performance numbers are just as wild, accelerating from 0-60mph in 2.1 seconds before reaching a top speed of 217mph. With its high-flow supercharger upgrade, the hypercar manufacturer has successfully transformed the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and its already impressive performance into a formidable muscle car that celebrates the thrill of the open road and supercharges it to new heights.
