The latest episode of the ongoing Forza Horizon 5 Let’s Go! series dropped last night, offering up more gameplay ahead of the racer’s launch next month.
First off, we took a trip to the first player house in the game, Casa Bella, to look at the game’s character customisation features. A bunch of new items and options have been added since the previous games. These include new hair, face items, masks and even prosthetics for your driving avatar to sport. As in previous games, you’ll be able to earn more through Wheelspins and other events. You can even select your own pronouns, which will change how people refer to you in game and even how the radio DJs refer to your exploits.
Elsewhere, Horizon Stories will make their return in the new game. Some examples of these include the stunt driving story as seen in previous Forza Horizons. You won’t need to have played the previous game to follow along, but you’ll still get to enjoy a mini-story weaved through the game as you progress. And unlike the previous game, where you’d start in the same location, stories can continue with new chapters appearing elsewhere in the world. You’ll also get to choose how to complete certain missions to earn points and unlock the next chapter.
Later on, the video also reveals that a certain iconic car is making its way back to Forza Horizon. The iconic DeLorean DMC 12 will be available in the Summer of Series One’s Festival Playlist in the game’s Forzathon mode. Rack up enough points, and it’ll be yours to keep.
