Are you ready for the ultimate Horizon Rally experience? Today on the Forza Horizon 5 Let’s ¡GO! livestream, our friends at Playground Games introduced the community to the second Forza Horizon 5 expansion that we’re calling Forza Horizon 5 Rally Adventure, coming on March 29 to Xbox consoles, PC on Windows and Steam, and Cloud Gaming (Beta).
Pack your bags, because we’re driving to an entirely new location: the rugged and biome diverse Sierra Nueva, home to the dustiest and dirtiest races we’ve ever hosted at the Horizon Festival.
Forza Horizon 5 Rally Adventure is included in the Forza Horizon 5 Premium Add-ons Bundle, the Premium Edition and Expansions Bundle. It’s also available for standalone purchase at $19.99.
KICK UP THE DUST!
Welcome to Horizon Rally! Your first choice? Pick a team. You might notice some familiar faces. Alex is leading the Horizon Raptors to break new limits in Dirt and Offroad events; Ramiro is steering the Grit Reapers to defy nature’s unpredictability in street-style Night Rally; while finally, Alejandra is guiding the Apex Predators to master the technical, high-speed Asphalt Rally.
Once the paperwork is signed, you’ll compete in eight races with your team of choice with PR Stunts along the way before taking on the leader in an epic Ambassador Race. Take the lead across all three teams to unlock a special Goliath route.
Forza Horizon 5 Rally Adventure features the largest number of racing events of any Horizon expansion, and these are spread across dirt, asphalt and challenging night races featuring timed point-to-point Horizon Rally stages and traditional multi-car Horizon Races. Across these events, you’ll hear navigator callouts from your co-driver, who follows the action from the Horizon Rally Helicopter, which features a dynamic night-time spotlight to improve your visibility in rally events taking place after sunset.
When in a Horizon Rally event, you will see a selection of new HUD elements which can be toggled on or off. These include a mini leaderboard showing your position relative to the other drivers who you’re competing against, a notification pop-up which appears at each timed split-gate to show whether you have improved, maintained or lost positions, and new icons representing the pace notes called by the co-driver throughout the route. It will also be possible to disable the ‘Driving Line’ just for Horizon Rally events, allowing for a more authentic and challenging Rally experience!
DISCOVER SIERRA NUEVA
Get ready to experience the most extreme off-road adventure ever seen in Forza Horizon.
Sierra Nueva features miles of our most exciting driving roads, full of unpredictable turns with steep inclines, blind crests and thrilling asphalt jumps, as well as rugged deformable sand roads interwoven with pre-deformed tire tracks. Massive dust trails kicked up by every car in the pack will allow rally drivers to feel the heat while listening to a punk soundtrack, courtesy of our friends at Epitaph Radio.
We know the question on your mind is “what new locations will I be able to discover in this expansion?” Sierra Nueva features a range of biomes to explore including the town of Pueblo Artza, a huge Abandoned Quarry perfect for some Gymkhana action, epic deformable Sand Dunes, the tight and twisting Desert Gorge, rolling Green Hills, and an entirely smashable Palm Forest.
With the release of Forza Horizon 5 Rally Adventure, we’ll be expanding our roster of EventLab props with a selection of new objects including branded barriers, flags and civilian vehicles, allowing you to build new races which capture the look and feel of a Horizon Rally event! These will be available for all Forza Horizon 5 players, regardless of whether they own the new expansion.
