What you need to know

  • Xbox is celebrating 20 years of gaming on Nov. 15, with big announcements like the release of Halo Infinite's multiplayer.
  • Playground Games and Turn10 Studios also joined in the fun on Monday with a custom Gift Car in Forza Horizon 5, Horizon 4, and Motorsport 7.
  • The 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder features a unique, exclusive livery that embraces the Xbox 20th Anniversary Celebration.
  • Anyone who logs into any of these Forza titles today can obtain this Gift Car and add it to their collection.

Microsoft hosted the Xbox 20th Anniversary Celebration on Monday, a commemoration of two decades of Xbox gaming memories and moments. Forza Horizon 5 from Playground Games and Xbox Game Studios officially released less than a week ago, but that isn't stopping the Forza teams from participating in the festivities with a player-facing reward of their own. Today, players that log into Forza Horizon 5, Horizon 4, or Motorsport 7 can obtain a free Gift Car with an exclusive Xbox 20th Anniversary Celebration livery.

The Gift Car is a 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder, an incredible car in its own right. However, this particular model is unique in that it features a livery you can't find anywhere else. The car is adorned with the names of Xbox's biggest titles of today, and it looks pretty amazing. It's not clear how long this Gift Car will be available, so be sure to log into your favorite Forza title today to add this car to your garage.

This is the latest Gift Car in the Forza Horizon 5 car list, after Playground Games celebrated Día de Muertos. While this alone probably won't convince you to play Forza Horizon 5, the epic open-world racing title has plenty of other things going for it.

Per our Forza Horizon 5 review, FH5 is "the unchallenged champion of open-world racers," and is undoubtedly one of the best Xbox racing games you can play right now. If you want to learn more about what makes this racing title special, be sure to check out our ultimate guide to Forza Horizon 5.
