Forza Horizon 5 gets Gamescom deep dive

Forza Horizon 5

Forza Horizon 5 developer Playground Games appeared on the Xbox Gamescom Stream for a deep dive into their upcoming game.

As announced at E3 this year, Forza Horizon 5 heads to Mexico. The first trailer features the game’s opening sequence, in which players arrive in Mexico for the first time. Players are dropped out of a plane, directly into the Mexican countryside. Well may you wonder why they’re para dropping the Horizon Festival into the country, considering it’s entirely possible to drive to Mexico? Did the Mexican government say no to the Horizon Festival and we’re just doing it anyway? The answer is “shut up, we’re having fun.”

The intro features both of the Forza Horizon 5 cover cars. For this instalment, these are the Mercedes-AMG ONE and the 2021 Ford Bronco Badlands. Also spotted in the trailer: the 2020 Corvette Stingray, and the Porsche 911 Desert Flyer.

Because we love a deep dive, Playground has also gone in-depth on the Ford Bronco Badlands and why its the perfect all-terrain vehicle for a trip to Mexico.

Forza Horizon 5 launches November 5, 2021 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows PC. It will launch day-and-date on Xbox Game Pass.
