Legendary Hot Wheels Comes to Forza with July Expansion

It was announced at the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase that Forza Horizon and Hot Wheels are getting back together, with the Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels expansion.

Coming on July 19 to Xbox consoles, PC on Windows and Steam, and Cloud Gaming (Beta), this new expansion introduces Forza players to the visually stunning, exhilarating new Horizon Hot Wheels Park in the clouds high above Mexico.

Welcome to Forza Hot Wheels

The new Horizon Hot Wheels Park has some of the fastest, most extreme tracks ever in a Horizon game, including more than 200 kilometres (125 miles) of twisting, looping iconic orange track. Explore a sprawling Hot Wheels open world with new driving experiences such as gravity-defying magnet tracks as well as ice, water flume, and rumble tracks.

This lets you play just like you wish you could have as a kid. Staring at those little vehicles and wandering what it would have been like to drive one in a loop for real. Forza has recreated it perfectly.

There are also new biomes, including the rugged Giant’s Canyon; the Ice Cauldron where frozen tundra drips into the glistening molten lava; Forest Falls which takes you high above the tree canopy and over epic waterfalls, and finally, the visually stunning Horizon Nexus, where the Horizon Festival is suspended among a web of Hot Wheels tracks.

Unlockables and Events

Unlock special Hot Wheels Heats events and celebrate the history of Hot Wheels in a new five-part Horizon Story. Plus, look out for new Accolades, Bonus Boards, Floating Piñata collectibles, PR Stunts and new Hot Wheels Seasonal Events which contribute to your overall Festival Playlist completion.

And, in a first for Forza, join friends and play the entire expansion from the very beginning in co-op. You can also compete and take on the world in Horizon Open, or team up and race a team of Drivatars in Horizon Tour. Free Fast Travel is also immediately unlocked for all players at the Horizon Hot Wheels Park, allowing you to quickly reach your friends no matter where they are located on the map.

To start there will be 10 new cars, including four new Hot Wheels scaled up to life-size like the 2018 Chevrolet Hot Wheels COPO Camaro, which is inspired by the first-ever Hot Wheels Custom Camaro from 1968.

You’ll need to complete the first 15 minutes of the main game to unlock the Hot Wheels experience. The Hot Wheels Expansion will then be available to access via the main menu. The best value would be to have the Forza Horizon 5 Premium Add-Ons Bundle to be able to play the new content.
