Accolades are the latest edition for the Forza Horizon franchise. So if you just started Forza Horizon 5 you might not fully understand what they are and how they work. Don’t worry, we’re here to explain that for you. By the end of this guide you’ll be able to fully take advantage of what this new feature brings to the table.
What Are Accolades?
Accolades are essentially Forza Horizon 5’s milestones. It’s a very straightforward system that rewards you for progress that you make in the game. Completing accolade requirements reward you with points. From Forza Horizon 5’s release, you can collect a maximum of 1,876 accolade points. And there are good incentives into collecting as much of them as you can.
How Accolades Work
You earn Accolade Points just from virtually anything you do in the game. It is actually how you advance the Horizon Festival. By successfully completing the accolade requirements, new chapters of the Horizon Adventure will be made accessible to you.
You can think of accolades as a checklist for you to perform to get rewards. You can check the game’s campaign menu to see what accolades are available for you to do, how to unlock them, and what rewards they have on accomplishment. Some accolades can be as simple as winning a race but some can be particularly challenging and require extra work. If you’re up for it, finishing the challenges accolades bring can be quite rewarding and worth it.
Accolades don’t just reward you with accolade points. Some rewards can go as far as to offer you special vehicles so you certainly wouldn’t want to miss out on those. What’s great about this system is that you’re free to go at your own pace and proceed about completing the requirements at your own leisure.
And now you now everything you need to about accolades and how they work in Forza Horizon 5. It’s a pretty intuitive system that incentives players to partake in many of the game’s activities.
