Playground Games is looking to celebrate the Lunar New Year and to ring in the Year of the Dragon in a very exciting manner in Forza Horizon 5. In a new update that is now available, the racing game is being bolstered with a bunch of new cars, rewards to earn, accolades to complete, and a whole bunch of limited time modes that feature aestical flairs that represent the annual event.

To mark the Lunar New Year, the Drift Arena in the game is getting a Year of the Dragon makeover. This means as you burn rubber around the track, you'll find a whole bunch of red and yellow colours and even vibrant dragons stretching around the track. At night, there will even be a dragon drone show lighting up the sky. Likewise, with these new elements being introduced, fans can head to the EventLab to add some dragons and other Lunar New Year decorations to their own creations.
