Horizon Wilds Takeover is the brand-new Forza Horizon 5 series starting this week with an off-road theme. This series kicked off today in the game after an update that came out two days prior on February 28. We will discuss all of the new additions, features, and bug fixes this update brought to the Playground Games title.

Two new cars have been added in the form of the 2021 Polaris RZR Pro and the 2021 Sierra 700R. It wouldn’t be a Forza Horizon 5 series update without a host of cars and a few others are returning.

1985 Nissan Safari, the 1981 Subaru Brat, the 1986 #2 Audi S1, the 2015 Honda Trophy Truck, and the 2016 Hoonigan Gymkhana 9 Ford Focus RS RX are all vehicles returning from previous Forza games.

Moving on to the new Series features, Stunt Park Stadium is also making a comeback with brand-new colors and a collectible Piñata Dinosaur.

Horizon Wilds Festival decorations will also be present around this map in Forza Horizon 5. Furthermore, you can collect the Mural Photo decorations as part of the Series Photo Challenges.

Other new features include the #43 badge, the Dinosaur Outfit, and the Hoonigan and Horizon Wilds Takeover collector accolades. A new Forza Link chat phrase that says “Go Fast Risk Every Thang” is another addition. New Eventlab props Lucky Cat and Red Dinosaur Piñata are also coming to Forza Horizon 5.

As per the patch notes, this update has also rectified a lot of bugs. In the general game, the issue affecting the Hot Wheels Outpost in Forza Horizon 5 has been fixed. Previously, you couldn’t choose the Horizon Mexico Festival Outpost as the player home after selecting the Hot Wheels one, but this won’t bother you anymore.

PR Stunt records will also not revert back to 1 star while the personal best score is displaying a higher amount. Issues letting you drive out of the environment when customizing a car are a thing of the past. Car masteries will not automatically reset if a vehicle is present on the Auction House from now.

Problems affecting the Mission Complete accolade have been set right and Treasure Chests will also be improved. Moving on, this update has fixed several bugs affecting cars in Forza Horizon 5. Issues blurring the rear turn of the 1965 Ford Hoonicorn after opening it in Forza Vista, will no longer be a worry.

Shadows will also not appear near the rear wheel of the 1995 Toyota MR2 while using BOMEX side skirts. Furthermore, the update has fixed the bug restricting players from painting the mirror and wings of the 2021 MG6 XPower after the first color change in the customization menu.

Improvements have also come to online connectivity and this update will alleviate regional ISP issues, especially in Argentina and Slovenia. Last but not least, the issue of incorrectly updating the props budget UI correctly when removing an object will no longer be a problem in Forza Horizon 5.
