Forza Horizon 5 ‘Winter Wonderland’ brings back Secret Santa and adds 23 new cars (including from Fast and Furious)


A new month, a new Forza Horizon 5 update. Everyone’s favorite open-world racing game is celebrating the holidays with its latest content update, which is now rolling out to players across Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows PC, and the various Xbox Game Pass services. Dubbed “Winter Wonderland,” the update brings new and returning features, lots of new cars, and another optional car pack DLC to expand your garage.

Let’s not waste any time. You can catch up on all the exact fixes and changes in this update at Forza.net, but I’ll summarize all the biggest features you need to know about below.

  • The return of Secret Santa. Forza Horizon 5 is embracing the spirit of the holidays with the return of Secret Santa, which encourages players to gift cars to each other. Starting today, every gifted car will count toward the community-wide gifting goal. There’s a reward car up for grabs at the 50% and 100% goal milestones, with the latter remaining a mystery until that goal is met.
  • A winter makeover. For the entirety of the Winter Wonderland Festival Playlist, all of Mexico will be overcast by winter. Unfortunately, this doesn’t make much of a difference in FH5, since Mexico doesn’t change all that much in the winter. The Stadium is getting a proper makeover, though, with holiday decorations and a new snowy racecourse.
    • Earn new Accolades by racing at the new winter-themed Stadium
    • There’s also new Accolades (and a new Badge) for car collecting
    • Find new holiday decorations throughout the FH5 map
    • Witness the long-awaited return of the mighty Snowman collectible
  • Forzathon Shop event. For the entirety of Winter Wonderland, the Forzathon Shop is expanding with exclusive deals on highly desirable vehicles, and players will be able to purchase one Forzathon Shop car a week to gift to another player.
  • New EventLab props. Forza Horizon 5’s constantly impressive EventLab 2.0 is expanding with more props, including new curbs, barriers, brake markers, and decorations. Holiday decorations are included, too.
  • Various fixes and improvements. Of course, Playground Games took this opportunity to fix some issues with car audio and visuals, accessibility features, and performance.
