Playground Games has a lot to celebrate this Christmas. Forza Horizon 5, the first studio release for the Xbox Series X / S, has been an amazing success. Xbox says it is the largest Xbox release ever, with more than 10 million songs played during its release week. The playground now has brand new reasons to celebrate, with Forza Horizon 5 being honored at the 2021 Game of the Year Awards across the industry. With that in mind, Playground is sharing a celebration with Forza Horizon 5 players with a special gift.
Last week, Forza Horizon 5 won the game of the year from IGN, showing the grand prize that went to the Playground Games party venue. The IGN also rewarded the Forza Horizon 5 for outstanding progress inaccessibility, best sound design, and best sports / racing game. It was enough that Playground decided to celebrate its player base.
Forza Horizon 5 players who log in today will see that they have received a special message and gift from the development team. The message on the News tab mentions that Forza Horizon 5 won the IGN Game of the Year award before thanking its community for “supporting us every day”. With that in mind, Playground 5 gives Super Wheelspins to all Forza Horizon 5 players. They can be redeemed and rotated from the player message gift list.
5 Super Wheelspins spins may not be a huge bonus for Forza Horizon 5 players. The 15 random prizes, mostly coins, are nice prize but are unlikely to affect any player’s experience. However, the playground’s ability to deliver an improvised in-game reward to Forza Horizon 5 players in honor of an unexpected event deserves positive recognition. The team really couldn’t have done anything.
Thanks to this, Playground does not offer such bonuses very often. Bikes are distributed once or twice a week for the occasion. Super Wheelspins are rarely distributed. 5 Giving Super Wheelspins would probably be the first. Maybe this explains how exciting it is for Playground to become the winner of the game of the year.
All five in-game Super Wheelspins are now available to Forza Horizon 5 players. Just remember to redeem the Super Wheelspins before removing the message from the gift list, or they will disappear forever and players will have to earn their Forza Horizon 5 Credits and cars the old-fashioned way. Forza Horizon 5 is now available for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / S.
