Playground Games finally revealed Forza Horizon 5 Expansion 2 yesterday in the form of 'Rally Adventure', an all-new DLC pack arriving next month. The expansion takes clear inspiration from Forza Horizon 1's own rally add-on, bringing a more down-to-earth DLC to Forza Horizon 5.

The question is, what do we all make of the announcement? While FH5 has already delivered its own crazy crossover with Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels, that was a clear re-treading of what came before during Forza Horizon 3's life cycle.

As a result, we're torn on what to make of this one in all honesty. On one hand we're very much down for more 'realistic' Forza Horizon content — as we banged on about last month with our praise of 'Fortune Island' — but at the same time, it is a little disappointing that Forza Horizon 5 will seemingly miss out on a unique crossover pack.

Rally Adventure does sound pretty good though. We're getting a whole new map in the form of the 'Sierra Nueva', along with 10 new cars and "the largest number of racing events of any Horizon expansion", so it at least sounds like a nice meaty expansion. It all just looks rather similar to the core Forza Horizon 5 experience - complete with plenty of sandy desert environments to boot.

We'll end up playing DLC 2 either way, but yeah, we feel the announcement has fallen a little flat all things considered. But, what do you think to the reveal of 'Rally Adventure'? Are you happy with Playground's direction here?
