First aired during an Xbox Gamescom live stream on Tuesday, the video above features the game’s newly revealed cover cars, the Mercedes-AMG ONE and the 2021 Ford Bronco Badlands. The former boasts Formula 1 hybrid technology while the latter specialises in off-roading.

Earlier this month developer Playground Games revealed Forza Horizon 5’s full world map, which “is 50 percent bigger, so one and a half times the size of Forza Horizon 4’s”, according to creative director Mike Brown.
A limited edition Xbox controller based on Forza Horizon 5 will be released on November 11, Microsoft also announced on Tuesday.
The controller is made of translucent bright yellow plastic – enabling players to see the rumble motors – with light blue and pink paint splatters over it. The D-pad is white, while the analogue sticks are light blue and pink.
According to Xbox, the design is inspired by the fireworks that go off throughout the day during the in-game Horizon Festival.
