Forza Horizon 5 Rally Adventure Takes Players Off-Road in Sierra Nueva

Forza Horizon 5 fans, get ready to rev your engines and hit the dirt because Rally Adventure is coming to the game on March 29th! During the Let’s ¡GO! livestream event, the Forza team announced the exciting news that rally racing will be added to the game, allowing players to prove their driving skills across three different rally teams.

Rally Adventure takes place in Sierra Nueva, which boasts the most extreme driving roads in Forza Horizon history. The location features a range of biomes including the town of Pueblo Artza, a massive abandoned quarry perfect for Gymkhana action, sand dunes, a tight and twisting desert gorge, rolling green hills, and even a smashable palm forest. Players will be challenged with unpredictable turns, steep inclines, blind crests, and asphalt jumps while kicking up massive dust trails and navigating rugged deformable sand roads interwoven with pre-deformed tire tracks.

To fully immerse players in the rally experience, Forza has created the most significant number of racing events featured in any Horizon expansion. Players can join three rally teams and embark on timed Horizon Rally stages and multi-car Horizon Races in the Campaign mode. Compete across dirt, asphalt, and challenging night-time scenarios to prove your mastery of all facets of rally driving.

For an authentic rally experience, a new co-driver will provide navigator callouts from the dynamic Horizon Rally Helicopter, ensuring success in even the most challenging of routes thanks to a dramatic night-time spotlight. Additionally, the new Horizon Rally HUD includes helpful on-screen information such as a mini leaderboard, pace notes, and position changes that can be toggled on or off.

Of course, no rally expansion would be complete without purpose-built rally monsters. Forza Horizon 5 Rally Adventure features 10 new off-road vehicles, including the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Platinum, the 1973 Hoonigan Volkswagen Baja Beetle Class 5/1600 ‘Scumbug,’ and the 2001 Ford #4 Ford Focus RS. Plus, all-new rally parts including an anti-lag system that delivers more power to turbocharged engines with spectacular flame effects and fire-cracker audio. Launch control is also a new assist for all cars, making it easier for players of all skill levels to achieve perfect rally starts.

And if the dirtiest, dustiest races ever in a Forza Horizon game aren't enough to get your blood pumping, new music from Epitaph Radio with a punk soundtrack will be added to Forza Horizon 5 radio dials in a free update alongside the expansion’s release.

Sierra Nueva will be available to players who have completed the initial experience in Forza Horizon 5. The Rally Adventure expansion is included in the Forza Horizon 5 Premium Add-ons Bundle, Premium Edition, and Expansions Bundle. It will also be available for standalone purchase at USD 19.99. Xbox Game Pass members can upgrade to the Premium Add-ons Bundle, which will provide immediate access to the Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels expansion, VIP, Car Pass, and the Welcome Pack, ensuring they’re ready to jump into Forza Horizon 5 Rally Adventure from day one.

So, rally fans, get ready to prove your mettle in Forza Horizon 5 Rally Adventure and show the world what you're made of on the most extreme driving roads ever created in a Horizon expansion.
