The May 12th edition of Forza Monthly revealed the details of the Series 8 pre-release fest for Forza Horizon 5. In two weeks, Series 7 will conclude and the premium German series of cars will begin.
During the festival, manufacturers such as Audi, BMW, Porsche, Volkswagen and Mercedes-AMG will be celebrated with events aimed at taking advantage of and winning over these cars.
FORZA HORIZON 5, SERIES 8, SERIES Rewards
A total of 208 points are available in the entire eighth series, down from the 225 that were in series 7 and 230 of series 6.
Back in Series 6, it was said that more events would be added to give Forza Horizon 5 players more opportunities to earn points. This doesn’t seem to be the case anymore as the point level is back the same amount it was in Series 5.
Regardless, there are two really cool German cars available to unlock by completing the majority of the Series 8 Festival. At 80 points, players will win an “epic” Mercedes-AMG E63. Then, at 160 total points, the “Legendary” Type D auto-union can be yours.
For the entire playlist, Rivals’ monthly challenge will be the Mulege arc circuit and will provide four points on each playlist to complete. Also, the Audi R8 ’12 “Epic” can be purchased for 700 Forzathon points in the Forzathon Store.
FORZA HORIZON 5, SERIES 8, SUMMER
Summer is the first season, and in the wet season, players can unlock the “legendary” Porsche 959 with 20 points and the “epic” Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4″ 12″ with 40 points. The weekly #Forzathon challenge will include a Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG for 2012.
Trial of the week includes a stock Mercedes-Benz 190E, and the prize for winning the challenge is a “rare” Mercedes-Benz C63 C63. In Featured Eventlab, the epic ‘Pop ‘N’ Lock emote is obtained by completion.
Three seasonal PR Stunts will earn Super Wheelspins, but a Volkswagen Golf R’10 ‘rare’, a Mercedes-Benz 190E ‘rare’ (which you can use to complete the experience), and an ‘Epic’ Porsche 911 GT3 can also win the ‘RS’. 19.
There will also be a treasure hunt in the summer, where the clue is that “it’s time to get electric in the alfalfa region”, whatever that means. The Photo Challenge is #ONCOURSE and gets you some outfits, and completing the Horizon Open Challenge will earn a BME M6 ’13 “rare”.
Forza Horizon 5, Series 8, Fall
Autumn is storm season, and for the German Series 8 theme, of course again all prizes are designed in Germany. At 20 points, players will win an “epic” Porsche 911 GT3 21. Keep performing this season and you’ll get 40 points earned from the “legendary” Mercedes-Benz SSK.
For the weekly #Forzathon fall challenge, the car you’ll own is a 2015 Audi S1.
Another stock offering will be the Test Drive, using the BMW M2 Coupe. Completing this experience earns a ‘rare’ BMW i8. For Eventlab, completing this community-created challenge will earn players an “epic” Audi RS 6 ’09.
Three more Super Wheelspins are waiting for you to complete three exciting PR games of the season, but two epic cars can also be yours in two of the seasonal championships, the BMW M3-GTR and the Porsche Cayenne.
Autumn finally introduces a “legendary” German Geometric Hoodie and the Classing Running Man’s “epic” expression is unlocked by completing the #TURBOTAKEOFF Photo Challenge.
FORZA HORIZON 5, SERIES 8, WINTER
The dry season, winter, has some great cars that you can collect by completing the majority of the festival. On 20 points earned, the “rare” Mercedes-Benz AMG GT is unlocked. Double this amount to get 40 points and you will have a Porsche 959 #185 “Legendary”.
If you choose to do the weekly #Forzathon challenge in winter, you will need a 2008 BMW Z4 M Coupe.
The third arrows showdown awaits all the stars who can compete in the trial. The Porsche Porsche #65911 Desert will be the car required, and the prize for completion is the “Epic” Porsche 911 GT2 RS12.
This week, Eventlab will earn gamers an “epic” Porsche 911 Turbo 82. There will also be three more PR moves with three more Super Wheels to win.
While this playlist offers the “common” AMG Hammer Coupe, the season’s other championship, Modern Classics, will earn players a “rare” Porsche 911 Turbo ’14.
There will be a second treasure hunt in the winter and the guide reads “Couped up? Let’s go up by seeing Mulliage Heights!”
The photo challenge, #PITCHPERFECT, will unlock an “epic” red suit, and finishing with 30 or better in The Eliminator will give you a “rare” Opel Manta 400.
Forza Horizon 5, Series 8, Spring
The final season is the hot season in spring, and it is very likely that the hottest car in the game will be unlocked here. At 20 points, the “rare” Audi RS 4 Avant ’18 could be yours. If you’re like me, constantly staring at the game’s packaging art, and craving the “legendary” Mercedes-AMG ONE, well, the good news is that 40 points here will unlock it for you. I’m making a note in my calendar for this.
Also, if you look at the competition in the #Forzathon Weekly Challenge, you’ll need a 2003 Volkswagen Golf R32.
It’s a completely “epic” bonus for the final season in Series 8. Starting with the demo, the final stock showdown with the Audi Quattro will get you an Audi R8 V10 Plus in return. Eventlab produces the Porsche 718 GTS.
Two of the seasonal championships also have “epic” cars, one with a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG as a prize and one with an Audi Quattro that you’ll need to compete in the experience. How convenient!
Another seasonal tournament will give you an “epic” ice cream horn, and the #GOINGPLACES Photo Challenge will also give you a car horn prize, although this is just a “common” beautiful morning sound.
Series 8 car card content
There will also be four new cars coming to Car Pass. Audi RS 3 Sedan, Audi RS 5, Volkswagen Pickup LX ’82 and BMW M8 ’20 will be included, one new car every week. More details about these cars will be included in our constantly updated article.
