Forza Horizon 5 Initial Drive Trailer Released
Which cars were revealed?
Forza Horizon 5’s first eight minutes shows the beautiful landscape of Mexico. The team set out to create a game that was larger than the previous games. Playground games sent a team of photographers to Mexico in order to capture real-world sky and light data. The site will also feature 11 distinct biomes, a local weather system and real-world natural events. You can expect to see leaves flying everywhere if you speed through the jungle.
The trailer shows Forza Horizon 5’s cover cars, which are the Mercedes-AMG One and 2021 Ford Bronco Badland.
The Forza Horizon 5 Landscapes can also be seen when watching this masterpiece. These landscapes include the Gran Caldera volcano in snow, a dust storm in a Mexican farmland and a dense jungle tree canopy.
Some of the songs were also leaked from radio stations. They sound amazing and perfect.

We also announced the Forza Horizon 5 Limited Edition Xbox Wireless Controller, inspired by the powder fireworks that go off throughout the day at the in-game Horizon Festival.
The controller features a first-ever transparent yellow finish, with a custom-colored, visible rumble motor and lighting effects that play off the Xbox button.
The controller includes textured grips on the triggers and bumpers, and custom bottom and side dimple patterned grips inspired by perforated style performance car steering wheels.
