What you need to know

  • Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is an important holiday in Hispanic and Latin America cultures to honor those who have passed on.
  • To help celebrate Día de Muertos, Xbox has collaborated with actor Xolo Maridueña to create a custom car in Forza Horizon 4.
  • The unique 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray is decked out in brilliant colors and designs, and looks incredible.
  • Anyone who signs into Forza Horizon 4 (or FH5) before Dec. 31, 2021 can add the car to their garage for free through the Message Center.

The Day of the Dead is approaching, being celebrated in Mexico and other parts of the world on Nov. 1 and Nov. 2, and Xbox is looking to get in on the celebrations. In collaboration with actor Xolo Maridueña, Xbox has created a custom livery for Día de Muertos in Forza Horizon 4, built on the powerful and sleek 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray. The colorful and geometric designs of the livery are an appropriate homage to everything that makes Día de Muertos special, even if it's just a small gesture in a video game.

Of course, this isn't a one-off design. Any player who logs into Forza Horizon 4 before Dec. 31, 2021 can add the Día de Muertos liveried car to their collection for free, just by redeeming it through the in-game Message Center. Even better, this car will also be given to players for free in Forza Horizon 5, which launches in early access on Nov. 5, 2021 (with a wider release on Nov. 9). Combined with Forza Horizon 5's Loyalty Rewards, many players are going to start off with a pretty impressive garage in FH5.
