Forza Horizon 5 Hot Wheels All Star Cars

It’s off to the races for the tenth major update for Forza Horizon 5 and the game’s first expansion. Both the Series 10 update and the Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels expansion have released and are live on the servers for all players to jump into. The new Series 10 Update for Forza Horizon 5 is mandatory to access to the Hot Wheels expansion, but it also includes a lot of changes and improvements for all players in the base game.

Extreme E vehicles enter the ever-expanding car roster, bringing high-octane 4×4 off-road action with the power of pure electricity. You can also unlock four returning Porsche vehicles from various eras as rewards in the Festival Playlist throughout the next four seasons. New customization options are available throughout the game, including new race suits, collectibles, billboards, emotes, and even new Xbox/Steam achievements. These include special achievements specifically for the Hot Wheels expansion.

 

Beat that!

On the more technical side of things, a new save data recovery system will help players restore a previous save file backup in the event it gets lost. Additionally, this update squashes some big bugs, including a glitch in the Auction House that would take Credits away if a player’s bid failed. Other fixes include a physics fix that made top-heavy cars unstable back in the 9th update, among many others. The full rundown of patch notes are available on the Forza Support website.

Starting your new adventure

For those that want to jump into the new Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels expansion immediately, it’ll set you back 10GB. So, look out for that. For returning players, the Series 10 update itself starts as a 14.86GB download. Auto-updates should be available regardless if you have the Microsoft Store version or the Steam edition of Forza Horizon 5.

Once everything is installed, you can access the new Hot Wheels Park from the main Mexico map via a POI near the Volcano. Alternatively, you can also select it from the Menu. Even new Forza Horizon 5 players can access the content of the expansion pretty much from the very start of the base game. In fact, progression between the two is separate. Events in the expansion begin with slower, lower class vehicles and gradually open up to more high-speed challenges. This ensures all players can ease into the experience.

As a standalone release, the expansion costs $19.99 USD. It comes included with the Premium Edition of Forza Horizon 5 and for those who buy either the Premium Add-Ons bundle or the Expansions bundle. It can be purchased via the Microsoft Store and on Steam.

The Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels expansion brings 10 brand-new cars and a new Hot Wheels Park. It contains four new biomes linked together by a web of over 100 miles of the iconic orange-colored Hot Wheels tracks. Featuring different track types and a variety of new events and challenges, this expansion is the largest and most ambitious yet for a Forza Horizon title in terms of both depth and scale.
