The DeLorean will be available to unlock during the first week of Forza Horizon 5’s Festival Playlist - which is an interface within Forza Horizon 5 that displays a player’s progress as well as any news, updates, challenges, and rewards that are up for grabs that season. 

More details about the new Festival Playlist were given during the latest episode of Forza Horizon 5: Let’s ¡Go! As well as more footage of the Delorean and a bit of background as to how it made its way into the racing game. Mike Brown, the creative director at Playground games said during the livestream that "it’s almost certainly the most requested car we’ve ever had."

There have been tonnes of other details revealed about the game ahead of its release including Forza Horizon 5 PC requirements which Playground games has organized into three categories: minimum specs, recommended specs, and ideal specs so that all players will be able to make the most of Forza Horizon 5 when it releases. 

Forza Horizon 5 is set to release on November 9, 2021, exclusively on PC, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S. Players will be able to claim their Delorean DMC-12 reward during the Summer season of Series 1 of the Festival Playlist.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
