Forza Horizon 5 Adds New Progression System To Horizon Open

Forza Horizon 5 has added a new progression system and custom races to the Horizon Open series in an effort to enhance Playground Games’ latest racing title, in new Series 6 update.

Forza Horizon 5 just received the Series 6 update from Playground Games aiming to add some variety to the racing title’s PvP experience, bringing with a host of new online features, including the new progression system, and custom races.

The custom races now allow players to matchmake with others on a more specific level, such as those we find in Gran Turismo, including things like race type and PI Class. The new progression system will amend how players earn XP, whereby any XP earned from Series 6 will count towards both the standard player level, as well as the new Horizon Open level.

In Horizon Open, players can unlock a new reward called Badges by leveling up in Horizon Open, which are visible ornaments next to Gamertags, as well as race standings and leaderboards in Horizon Life Free Roam. You can view the full patch notes here.

Forza Horizon 5 Series 6 Update

SERIES 6 PATCH NOTES

General

  • Stability and Performance improvements
  • Improved save flow for Weekly Forzathon to reduce chances of any progression loss
  • Updated string for Car Voucher to be more specific about what its function is
  • Updated Seasonal Event map pins to match the Seasonal PR Stunt pin

  • Added HUD for cars with Race Mode type functionality to support the new Drivetrain swap mode on the Ford Mustang Mach-E
  • Added low-res mesh under the world to improve the visuals when world chunks dropped out at high altitudes such as when using the new Gravity Action in EventLab (Series X/S and PC only)
