Unlocking Skill Songs in Forza Horizon 5

Forza Horizon 3 introduced one of the game’s most popular features in Skill Songs. With these songs, players can earn double points by doing Skills with their cars. In the third installment of the franchise, they could unlock them by purchasing the Horizon Skill Song perk through the Skill Shop. However, in Forza Horizon 4, players unlocked them by purchasing The Huntsman’s Lodge in Lakehurst Forest for 750,000 credits.

Forza Horizon 5 also features some amazing Skill Songs that players will love driving to. They can unlock it by purchasing the Casa Bella house in Mulege. During free roam and co-op campaign, use these songs to earn double the amount of XP. The songs will have an average length of three minutes, so make sure to try your best during these minutes. However, the developers at Playground Games have also added a subtle nod that you might have missed in this game and the previous installment as well.

Dance to the beat during Skill Songs

When a Skill Song’s played, players try their best to score as many Skills as possible. However, if they move their camera around the front or side of the car, they can notice their avatar in the driver’s seat grooving to the beats of popular Latin tracks and many more. While many players have noticed it just now, this feature’s been available in the franchise since Forza Horizon 4.

However, fans don’t feel like they have missed out on anything as Playground Games have done a stellar job at creating a world an experience that no other racing title provides.
