Late last week, Forza Horizon 5 dev Playground Games fully revealed the game's second expansion, Rally Adventure. The off-road focused affair arrives March 29th, and ahead of launch, the team has released quite a lot of information about what to expect from FH5's final major DLC pack.
We'll break down the big talking points so far, including the full car list and some of the expansion's open world landmarks.
Forza Horizon 5 Rally Adventure Full Car List
As part of the team's information blowout, the full car list for Forza Horizon 5: Rally Adventure was revealed. As you'd expect, the list is heavily skewed towards off-roaders, with the inclusion of Colin McRae's iconic Ford Focus a particular highlight. Here's the full list, featuring 10 vehicles total:
- 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Platinum
- 1973 Hoonigan Volkswagen Baja Beetle Class 5/1600 'Scumbug'
- 2001 Ford #4 Ford Focus RS
- 2022 Alumicraft #6165 Trick Truck
- 2021 Polaris RZR Pro XP Factory Racing Limited Edition
- 2020 Jimco #179 Hammerhead Class 1
- 2019 Jimco #240 Fastball Racing Spec Trophy Truck
- 2019 Casey Currie Motorsports #4402 Ultra 4 'Trophy Jeep'
- 2021 RJ Anderson #37 Polaris RZR Pro 4 Truck
- 2021 Alumicraft #122 Class 1 Buggy
As for where you'll be racing these new rides? Well, as expected, Playground is bringing a brand-new slice of open world Mexico to players in the form of the "rugged Sierra Nueva". Here's a taste of what you can expect from the new open world landscape, and its accompanying soundtrack:
"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."
Much like Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels, the team is integrating various 'biomes' into this open world, alongside a set of distinctive landmarks. For Rally Adventure, these include the town of Pueblo Artza, a huge Abandoned Quarry, deformable Sand Dunes, the "tight and twisting" Desert Gorge, rolling Green Hills, and an entirely smashable Palm Forest.
Of course, the open world isn't much use without a bunch of stuff to do in it. Expansion 2 brings "the largest number of racing events of any Horizon expansion" including dirt, asphalt and "challenging" night races. When the sun goes down, expect to compete in various point-to-point 'Horizon Rally' stages and traditional multi-car races.
It's not all off-road either, even if the expansion is clearly focused on more rugged terrain. The 'Apex Predators' discipline is delivering high-speed asphalt rally to players across the Sierra Nueva, so it sounds like any tarmac petrolheads will still be served well here.
We expect to hear more info on Rally Adventure in the coming weeks, but it's safe to say it sounds packed with content already. Dive into Forza Horizon 5 Expansion 2 on March 29th, for £14.99 / $19.99 or £13.49 / $17.99 with an Xbox Game Pass subscription.
