That’s it, folks. Forza Horizon 5 has gone gold, or in other words, is complete.
Releasing on the 9th November, or the 5th for those who buy the Premium Edition, the vast open-world racing game, set this time in Mexico, is ready to release. Happy days.
To celebrate, the game’s soundtrack was recently discussed during the final Forza Horizon 5: Let’s ¡Go! Episode – we hope you like Dua Lipa…
In perhaps more positive news, the all-electric Lotus Evija, code name Type 130, will be in the game at launch. It uses a 70 kWh battery and four electric motors to provide all-wheel-drive and 1970hp. Staggering.
For fans of arcade racing games, the Evija, of which only 130 units will be built, has previously appeared in Project CARS 3. In the latest FH5 gameplay footage, we saw it silently carve up the opposition during a dust storm – one of the game new Mexico-themed weather conditions.
It sits alongside several new additions to the Forza Horizon roster such as the Aston Maritn Valhalla, DMC DeLorean, Ford Bronco and Mercedes-AMG ONE.
Are you excited to try the new generation of Lotus in Forza Horizon 5? Let us know in the comments below and rest assured you won’t have to wait long at all. Why not listen to our latest podcast episode too, where we discuss the potential FH5 highlights.
