Rally Adventure: Forza Horizon 5’s Second DLC is Here

rally adventure dlc

Forza Horizon 5 was released towards the tail-end of 2021, and it instantly became an overnight sensation among Xbox gamers the world over. When it launched, it hit 4.5 million players on the first day, smashing records and beating Forza Horizon 4’s concurrent player count (at launch) four times over.

It was mostly thanks to the game being made available on Game Pass, of course, but there was still a hefty investment from fans looking to get in on the action early – and they all paid cold, hard cash.

Now, Playground Games and Xbox Game Studios have lifted the lid on the second DLC for Forza Horizon 5 – Rally Adventure – and it looks good.

Get Ready to Get Dirty

On March 29th, Rally Adventure will be released, expanding Forza Horizon 5 for the second game since the game first launched way back in November of 2021. Last year, the first DLC, a Hot Wheels-themed expansion, offered players a no-holds-barred, high-octane experience that took many racers back to the bygone days of their childhoods.

Rally Adventure is something entirely different, bringing a gritty, hardcore, offroad expansion to Forza Horizon 5, with Playground games guaranteeing that, with new customisation options, players will be able able to ‘build a rally monster’.

There was an hour-long showcase streamed on YouTube that showed every detail of the upcoming expansion:

At the heart of the Rally Adventure expansion sits an entirely new environment, brand-new tracks, ten never-before-seen vehicles, and several technical updates, such as anti-lag and launch control features.

Judging from the general consensus littered throughout the comments on the YouTube video embedded above, the community is somewhat split on the delivery of this expansion. On one side, there are many who feel that this is too little, too late for a game that launched so long ago. On the other side of the table, there are the die-hard players that welcome any and all updates, including a full-fledged rally-based DLC.
