Forza Horizon 5 Updates Brings Donut Media Cosmetics And New Cars

One brand new car, three returning from previous games, and a swath of bug fixes also characterize this patch.


Forza Horizon 5 has added a new story mission set in the Donut Media Test Track, eight accolades, and cosmetics themed around Donut Media. These cosmetics include clothing, emotes, and other collectibles.

Other new content includes new unlockable cars, such as the brand new 2020 Lynk&Co #62 Cyan Racing 03. The 1965 Morris Mini-Traveller, the 1946 Ford Super Deluxe Station Wagon, and the 1953 Morris Minor Series II Traveler all return to Forza in this update. In car customization, the update adds 21 new Rocket Bunny Widebody kits.

The PC version has also received a number of improvements, most notably two new presets, Ultra and Extreme, which render reflections for the player's car in Free Roam, Races, and Drivatar in Photo mode. Other additions include AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.2, Enhanced DirectX Raytracing, NVIDIA DLSS Super Resolution, NVIDIA DLAA, and 3DRap Hand Controller HC1 compatibility.

The remainder of the patch is bug fixes. In addition to general performance and stability fixes, the updates fixed an issue where car type sorting did not display in alphabetical order and an issue where players were constantly prompted to set a route in the world map for a Horizon Origins Story. The update also improved ASL and BSL implementation in story missions, as well as adding general improvements to voice overs in Horizon Stories.
