What you need to know

  • Forza Horizon 5 is an open-world racing game from Playground Games and Xbox Game Studios.
  • On Friday, Playground revealed a unique 2016 Jeep Trailcat decked out in a Halo Infinite-inspired livery and design.
  • Starting today, players who log into Forza Horizon 5 can obtain the gift car for free through the in-game Message Center.
  • The custom car features Master Chief, the UNSC logo, and many more easter eggs and Halo-themed details.

Playground Games has already set a precedent for gifting custom cars to players in Forza Horizon 5, and the studio is doing it again. This time, Playground is paying homage to 343 Industries and its latest title, Halo Infinite, with a custom 2016 Jeep Trailcat decked out in a unique Halo Infinite-inspired livery, complete with a myriad of details and easter eggs. Starting today, players who log into FH5 can add the car to their own garage through the in-game Message Center.

This is not the first time Playground and 343i have teamed up, and it's not even the first example in Forza Horizon 5. The legendary Warthog, heavily featured in Halo Infinite, can be obtained and driven in FH5 as the ultimate off-roader. The 2016 Jeep Trailcat is a real-world off-roading monster, and it's the perfect fit for the Halo-inspired livery wrapped around it. It's unclear how long the car will be available to FH5 players. Still, starting today, all you have to do to acquire this awesome vehicle is log into FH5 and navigate to the "Gifts" section of the Message Center.

Both Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite have secured their places on our list of best Xbox games, and are well worth a play. When the two legendary franchises come together, it's even better.

Both games are also available through Xbox Game Pass, making it a simple matter to hop into both titles. If you want to see what other cars Playground has gifted in FH5, check out our Forza Horizon 5 car list for all the details.
