Forza Horizon 5 adds some free new rally-themed cars for all owners of the base game. With a brand new expansion pack set to launch at the end of March to celebrate the history and culture of rallying, developer Playground Games intends to create the right atmosphere ahead of its release.
Until Forza Horizon 5 Launched with hundreds of cars available on day one, the game’s subsequent content updates introduced dozens more. FH5The themed seasons have given players the ability to farm specific types of vehicles without having to spend extra money, and this will inevitably continue in the coming weeks.
In particular, Playground Games pulls a 180 with the content plan ahead Adventure Rally DLC, moving from Forza Horizon 5JDM season go to dirt races and rallies. Players looking to gear up for off-roading will have the opportunity to unlock franchise newcomers the 2021 SIERRA Cars 700R and the 1980 Subaru BRAT GL, along with two returnees from previous Forza titles, 2016 Hoonigan GYMKHANA 9 Ford Focus RS-RX and 1986 Audi Sport Quattro S1. Also featured will be the 2015 Honda Ridgeline Baja Trophy Truck, 2021 Polaris RZR Pro XP and 1985 Nissan Safari Turbo.
Each of the above vehicles will lead their own selection of dirt racing content, allowing players to test their skills before Forza Horizon 5: Adventure Rally is released on March 29. All this means that players have a unique opportunity to significantly upgrade their garages with cars specially designed for daring rallies, both historical and modern, without having to spend extra money on a future expansion pack.
Even more interesting is the fact that all new rally cars will be able to receive Forza Horizon 5New rally DLC update, if the players choose to pursue them. They will be able to turn even the humble Subaru BRAT GL into a real racing monster, competing with the best cars the sport has to offer. The extent of these upgrades remains to be seen, of course, but some examples include launch control, anti-lag, and firecracker sound effects.
Of course, even a new one Adventure Rally DLC can’t really do that Forza Horizon 5 appealing to players who didn’t like its core gameplay loop. It’s not planned for some of these players Forza Motorsport already looks incredibleand it should offer a more serious, down-to-earth racing experience that will almost certainly also include rally events.
