With less than one week to go until Forza Horizon 5’s Hot Wheels Expansion is available to all on July 19, the team at Playground Games has given the lowdown on the new Achievements coming to the game.
There’s a good deal of variety on offer with the brand-new challenges, with a total of 37 coming to the game next Tuesday. Interestingly enough, while 29 of the new Achievements are for the Hot Wheels Expansion, the Series 10 update will introduce eight additional achievements available to everyone whether they own the DLC or not.
That means there’ll be something new for everyone’s Achievements list in both the base game and this very first inaugural expansion pack.
Players will be able to pick up some of the base game Achievements retroactively; if you’ve already completed a challenge on the new list, it will automatically fill in on your card.
Some do cross over with in-game Accolades too, so if you’ve been playing since the game launched last year and hunting Accolades, they’ll pop pretty much as soon as you install the update.
That covers two of the big-scoring Achievements, which focus on the Drift Club which appeared as part of the Playlist throughout Series 6. As that event featured as a Monthly Challenge, it’s likely a lot of players will have already covered this off.
There are some you’ll need to deal with manually though. Of particular interest is “One For All”, which awards 10 GS for winning a Horizon Open custom race in the 2021 Mercedes-AMG One. It may be a new expansion, but the game’s hero car isn’t one to be left in the dust.

As you’ll expect from the expansion Achievements, there’s rewards for exploration and activities across the new environments.
Four of the 10 GS achievements focus on players winning races that include the four different track variety types: water flume, ice, rumble, and magnet tracks.
You’ll also need to get through the various qualifier events — Rookie, Pro, Expert, and Elite — and complete all the chapters of the new Hot Wheels Horizon Story.
Discovering all the roads, smashing all the bonus boards and “floating tanks” (we can’t wait to see what this means), and clearing all the PR Stunts also bring up Achievements — and you’ll pick up 10 GS for just arriving at the Hot Wheels Outpost in the first place.
