Forza Horizon 5: a huge update rich in free content

content, Forza, free, Horizon, Huge, rich, Update

Forza Horizon 5 continues to please its players with a huge update full of free content… but not only. Yes, you’re going to have to get the wallet out.

Playground Games is definitely not idle and continues to pamper Forza Horizon 5 but also its community of regular players. Between a shovelful of free and paid vehicles, new additions but also the usual optimizations, here comes the time for a season 24 placed under the sEsports Extrasof Italy.

The extra content waltz continues for Forza Horizon 5

As usual, the fifth iteration of Forza Motorsport’s open-world arcade counterpart continues to expand over the seasons. Between its major updates like Hot Wheels and more recently Rally Adventure, it is also necessary to count on the regular additions linked to seasonal events in addition to the various optimizations made by the studio, very often completely free of charge. And it’s not Barbie and her DLC that can contradict us…

Among the novelties of this major update entitled Italian Automotive, we find the classic optimizations and bug fixes, but we will particularly retain an extension of the storage capacity of the garage, now capped at 2000 slots. Enough to satisfy the madness of grandeur of the most seasoned collectors who love duplicates in spades… yes, I see you, and the developers too! But what would such a thing be without increasing the save slots for your liveries and settings, right? Hop it’s done, the latter jump to 1000 slots.

A ton of free new cars… but not only

But let’s get to the big chunk of this Italian Automotive update, the new vehicles. No less than 23 cars are arriving on August 15, of course giving pride of place to Italian manufacturers such as Abarth, Lancia, Fiat and Alfa Romeo. Among this selection of cars, 8 will be available directly via in-game dealerships, namely:

  • 1968 Abarth 595 Esseesse
  • 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA Stradale
  • 1965 Alfa Romeo TZ2
  • 1968 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale
  • 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Verde
  • 1980 Fiat 124 Sport Spider
  • 1992 Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evo
  • 1974 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale

To this list are added 8 other cars obtained as rewards on various objectives of the Horizon Festival (2 per week):

  • 1980 Abarth 131
  • 2016 Abarth 659
  • 2017 Abarth 124
  • 1992 Alfa Romeo 155 Q4
  • 2007 Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione
  • 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C
  • 1982 Lancia 037
  • 1986 Lancia Delta S4

So yes, the most fussy among you will be able to retort that these 16 cars are not really new because all come from old Forza, Motorsport like Horizon. It’s not wrong but let’s not forget that it’s still free content. Want something really new? So here is the Italian Exotics Car Pack and its 7 tempting cars at the price of… 9.99€. Yes, there is something to cringe slightly when you think that this pack is not included in the premium version of the game, especially since some models are very tempting, judge for yourself:

  • 2020 Ferrari Roma
  • 2022 Ferrari 296 GTB
  • 2019 ItaldesEsports ExtrasDavinci Concept
  • 2018 Lamborghini #63 Squadra Corse Huracan Super Trofeo
  • 2020 Lamborghini SC20
  • 2020 Lamborghini Essenza SCV12
  • 2022 Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica

Towards one of the last major updates of Forza Horizon 5?

We said it previously, Playground Games has continued to chain updates for its flagship title of the moment, from there to ask the question, will this update of season 24 be a conclusion in apotheosis for this fifth opus of the license? As we know, the future of the studio will begin very soon with the arrival of Forza Motorsport on October 10 exclusively on Xbox Series and PC, so all forces should logically be concentrated on him, one of the biggest cartridges from Microsoft at the end of the year. Without forgetting either the very (very very?) awaited Fable 4 which also mobilizes a lot of resources from the developer.

But don’t panic, a certain The Crew Motorfest should fill your sorrows soon.
