This is sort of interesting (via and potentially a little tease for something to come in Series 5.

Playground Games has posted a teaser on their Twitter channel which is supposedly for a car coming to the game in the future as a reward vehicle. But it's been done as a Wordle puzzle (see below).

*spoiler warning*

For anyone who can't be bothered to work it out themselves, the answer to the puzzle is “NISMO” which is a motorsports subsidiary of the more well-known manufactuer Nissan. Still, it doesn't narrow the pool sufficiently to say what car this is for. Hopefully, we won't have to wait too long to discover precisely what model from the Nismo range Playground Games intends to add. Watch this space.

Forza Horizon 5 Series 5 Cars

At the time of writing, there's no confirmation on what cars could be added to Series 5.

Series 4 focussed heavily on the Chinese New Year with a series of cars added from Chinese Manufacturers, but there's no telling what the next season could bring. As per usual we can expect plenty of new cars released across Summer, Autumn, Winter, and Spring, on top of the four cars available for Car Pass owners (added DLC that delivers new cars to your game weekly, one per week.).

Hopefully, we'll see some teasers well before the next Let’s Go! Forza Horizon 5 livestream.

Forza Horizon 5 Series 5 Rewards & Events

With the next season being over 3 weeks away there's limited information on what to expect from Series 5.

Once again though, the game's "Coming Soon" page does detail a few teasers on what to expect from the next series. This includes a new Stunt Park world event, a party-themed world makeover (at least based on the balloon icon), and some new PR Stunts.

We imagine we'll learn more on what to expect in the week before release on the next Let’s Go! livestream.
