Microsoft will unveil a new gameplay video and cover car for the open world racing game ‘Forza Horizon 5’, which is about to be released on November 9th, at Gamescom 2021, and ‘Forza Horizon 5 Limited Edition Xbox’ We also announced the launch of the Forza Horizon 5 Limited Edition Xbox Wireless Controller.

The new gameplay of Forza Horizon 5, unveiled at Gamescom 2021, is an introductory driving video, so you can see the action that will take place during the game at a glance. In the video, the ‘2021 Ford Bronco Bandlands’ running on the top of an active snow-covered volcano, the ‘2020 Corvette Stingray’ heading across farmland into a sandstorm, and pounding through a dense jungle of trees. You can see supercars such as the Porsche 911 Desert Flyer racing through various landscapes in Mexico.

A video introducing the cover car that will decorate the cover of Forza Horizon 5 was also released. The first cover car, ‘Mercedes AMG-One’, is the first hypercar that applies ‘Formula 1’ hybrid technology to road driving. By changing the driving mode, it offers a new driving experience that has never been seen before on tracks, roads, and alleys. The 2021 Ford Bronco Badlands, which was also selected as the cover car, is a vehicle optimized for off-road racing across jungles and deserts while exploring the vast expanses of Mexico. Several supercars appearing in the game, including two cover cars, are expected to show a more realistic look based on the performance of the more powerful Xbox Series X|S console.

With the release of the highly anticipated Forza Horizon 5, Microsoft will also introduce a new wireless controller. Inspired by the fireworks exploding at the in-game Horizon Festival, the Forza Horizon 5 Limited Edition Xbox Wireless Controller is for the first time ever covered with a transparent yellow cover, allowing you to see the movement of the built-in custom-colored rumble motor as well as the flashing lights on the Xbox button. Texture grips are applied to the trigger and bumper, and dot-pattern grips inspired by the steering wheel of a performance car are applied to the rear and sides.
