Forza Horizon 5 Series 9: Horizon Story and Hot Wheels cars in the coop in the show | Xbox One


Playground Games released the Forza Horizon 5 Round 9 patch yesterday, next July 19, after spending a month with the German sports car theme during Round 8. Get a little closer to this Series 9, the new features that come with it, and the patch that was released yesterday.

Tidal wave of Hot Wheels cars landing in Forza Horizon 5, excluding Car Pass

While the Hot Wheels DLC will be out on July 19, Playground Games has decided to lay the groundwork by adding the majority of Hot Wheels vehicles by mid-July. Players having trouble joining this Forza x Hot Wheels crossover can console themselves over the next three weeks with three vehicles announced on Car Pass:

  • 2021 Aston Martin DBX (23/06)
  • 2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition (30/06)
  • 2019 Nissan 370z Nismo (07/07)

The other 7 vehicles in this Series 9 will therefore be available throughout the Seasons without paying a euro and will be exclusively from the Hot Wheels universe. First, there are three cars that will join the Horizon Wheelspin loot list and can be unlocked by completing the new Horizon Story:

  • 2012 Hot Wheels Rip Stick
  • 1949 Hot Wheels Ford F-5 Double Custom Hot Rod
  • 2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang

During the 4 Seasons of this Series 9, the last 4 cars will be unlocked:

  • 2018 Hot Wheels 2JetZ (20 points in summer)
  • 1968 Plymouth Barracuda Formula-S (20 points in the fall)
  • 1970 Dodge Coronet Super Bee (20 points in winter)
  • 1957 Hot Wheels Nash Metropolitan Custom (20 points in spring)

A very complete lineup that will get your feet wet before exploring the crazy trails of Hot Wheels DLC that will add 10 new vehicles and of course other Hot Wheels cars (not just).

New co-playable Horizon cosmetics and stories

Alongside the new vehicles, new Hot Wheels-themed customization items are being added to the game, including outfits and horns.

These are all the same game enhancements that fans have been waiting for, and they’ll be pleased to learn that Horizons stories can now be played cooperatively with up to 6 players. It’s a nice innovation for these missions, which are only available solo.
