With Forza Horizon 5's Hot Wheels expansion now just a few days away, Playground Games has released some images of the in-game map, giving us a sample of what it looks like both with and without the tracks.
You can check out a comparison image below, which shows that it's broken up into three major sections, each of them connected by an array of swirling orange and blue track. Here are some official shots:

That looks excellent. Can't wait for Tuesday to get stuck in.
Looks glorious! Can't wait to dive back in!
I’m not a fan of the hot wheels theme and I’d rather just a big expansion map and more of the same stuff in the main game. The snow part in 3 was the best expansion so far.
However this does look meaty. It won’t connect with me the same but I will have some fun with it.
@Stocksy I like the Hot Wheels stuff but at times, it’s too much like being stuck on rails - I appreciate the freedom of the other expansions
Hmmm… intriguing. Is the Premium Expansion bundle worth buying?
@rockodoodle I’ve enjoyed every Forza DLC ever released. They have a good track record, and this looks good too!
Ready…..set…….GO! I am looking forward to this one. Taking my laptop with me so I can play in the cloud on my vacation adress.
Any word on the install size yet?
This looks like so much fun!
This looks amazing I’m just not that interested in Forza though.
Should include the expansions with game pass
If you listen closely you can hear them say “Forza Horizon 5”
The Hot Wheels tracks just have so little to do with regular racing and cornering.
@Bartig That is what Forza Motor Sport is for. It will be here before you knw it, Horizon is for the acrade fun, they honestly kept it pretty grounded until this DLC
@Stoned_Patrol Strongly disagree. The regular Horizon (4 or 5) has a certain sweetspot between arcade and precise racing, but you won't see any of it back on Hot Wheels-like tracks. That wasn't the case in 3's DLC and wasn't the case in the user generated weekly Hot Wheels-esque tracks so far.
Motorsport is boring to me. I can't get enough of Horizon's sweetspot - but Hot Wheels certainly doesn't do it for me.
@GeekSleeves It's not going to be that different to the Hot Wheels DLC in FH3 either - it can't by design. It's still a Forza Horizon game and the engine isn't built to accommodate the craziness of Hot Wheels. Anyone who's played Hot Wheels Unleased will know what I'm talking about. It's not a full on Hot Wheels experience.
Can’t remember why but I really didn’t like the fh3 hot wheels dlc. Might have to give that a go again first
Is it me or does the (green) top island look like the alien fighters in the first Independence Day film?
Well I can strongly agree that Motorsport and all Sim type racers do not have any appeal for me either. The Forza Horizon "sweetspot" as you put it, is by far the best style of racer in the industry right now.
