Forza Horizon 5’s Hot Wheels content is cooler than it has any right to be

The big orange tracks are back. Not long after getting a winner of game all to itself, Hot Wheels is coming to Forza Horizon 5 (and looking great).

Watch those loops

Have you played Hot Wheels Unleashed? Released last year, the game finally offered up solid Hot Wheels-branded racing action. But the license isn’t going to be set aside that quickly.

Shown at the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase yesterday, there’s a fantastic looking Hot Wheels pack coming to Forza Horizon 5. Imagine, if you will, the stunning looks of Microsoft’s racing series, but with the insane, looping tracks of Hot Wheels.

Well, imagine it, or just watch the below trailer.

Seriously, how cool is that? While Forza Horizon 5’s gameplay and looks stay intact, the game is massively altered by the inclusion of those gigantic plastic tracks. Dubbed Horizon Hot Wheels Park, Forza’s upcoming expansion will offer up the most “extreme tracks ever devised”. And that just might be an understatement.

The pack will be loaded with 80 “distinct” track parts, and yes that means it’ll allow players to build their own courses. But there’s more, because on those courses you’ll be able to control a 10-pack of fresh cars. Those include the 2021 Hennessey Venom F5 and the 2000 Hot Wheels Deora II.

You won’t have long to wait for all of this either, since Horizon Hot Wheels Park is coming to Forza Horizon 5 on July 19th, 2022.
