The Forza Horizon 5 Series 2 Update has arrived, adding a new "Secret Santa" feature and laying out plans to launch some new cars in the coming weeks.

Forza Horizon 5 has been out for a little over a month; the game was revealed and got a surprising launch date announcement earlier this year. Featuring a ton of fun multiplayer races, there's plenty to do in the latest Forza Horizon game -- and now some new goodies are arriving just in time for the holidays.

What's New in the Forza Horizon 5 Series 2 Update?

The first major addition to the Forza Horizon 5 Series 2 Update is a new "secret Santa" feature. Players can donate cars purchased from the Forzathon Shop to a new holiday market in Mulege; lucky players may find a car with their name on it at the shop. You can choose up to 5 friends to be the recipient; alternatively, you can gift a car to a random player.

One gift can be sent per week, along with an additional gift on Christmas Day and New Year's Day. There's another good reason to give -- as player participation grows, the community will unlock the Santa Suit outfit and the 1962 Peel P50 (seen above). That's not a surprise considering how Forza Horizon loves to put oddball cars in its games. Progress on these global goals will be tracked in-game.

Also arriving in this update is a bunch of new Festival Playlist content over the next four weeks:
