At the big Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, Forza Horizon 5 developer Playground Games finally unveiled the game's much anticipated first expansion. We're returning to the world of Hot Wheels, much like Forza Horizon 3's 2nd DLC pack. However, this isn't going to be a simple rehash, as FH5: Hot Wheels is massively upping the ante.

First up, there's over 200km of track to explore on this new Hot Wheels map, which sits atop a new slice of Mexican landscape. That landscape is packed with "four new biomes" to explore as well, and from the footage we've seen so far, you can expect snow capped hills and lava-filled volcanic regions just to name a few.

'Eventlab' has also become a core Forza Horizon feature since its introduction in last year's game, and now, it's making its way over to Hot Wheels. You'll be able to use the 'Hot Wheels Creation Kit' to build tons of unique layouts, using over 80 new track and stunt pieces. Just don't look down!

Oh, and have we mentioned that it all looks bloody beautiful? Horizon 5's native next-gen version will make the whole Hot Wheels experience pop, at up to 60 frames per second no less. Here's a few screenshots to whet your appetite before launch on July 19th:
