It’s that time again, Forza fans. The latest Forza Monthly has aired, revealing future content we can look forward to in Forza Horizon 5.
In the latest show, Formula Drift star Vaughn Gittin Jr. joined Playground Games’ Creative Director Mike Brown to reveal a new Horizon Story in Forza Horizon 5 Series 6, which starts next week.
New Drift Club Mexico Horizon Story
Forza Horizon 5 Series 6 starts next week on 29 March. It features a new Horizon Story called Drift Club Mexico, accessed in the Series 6 Playlist. The six-chapter story sees the return of Mark Glenn from Forza Horizon 4, who teaches you the art of driving sideways.
During your drifting journey, you’ll drive seven of the world’s most famous drift cars, starting with a drift event on a runway in the iconic Toyota Corolla AE86. Other chapters feature the 2020 Nissan GT-R and Formula Drift cars. Throughout the chapter, Robert explains the historical significance of each drift car.
The final chapter sees you smoking tyres in Ken Block’s Ford Focus RSX in a Driftkhana-style event sliding around narrow streets in Mexico. You’ll swap the Focus for the all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 teased a few days ago, providing a glimpse at future electric drift cars.
Making its racing game debut in FH5, the Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 is a one-off electric drift car built in collaboration with Ford Performance and Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s RTR team. Vaughn Gittin Jr. also provides voiceovers in the Drift Club Mexico story.
This ferocious beast is powered by seven electric motors generating a combined 1,400 hp. In FH5, players can switch from AWD to RWD seamlessly at any time. With 1,400-hp being sent to the rear wheels, the Mach-E 1400 will be a handful to drive but fun to master.
Vaughn Gittin Jr.'s Mustang Mach-E 1400 is unlocked by completing all six chapters in the Drift Club Mexico Festival Playlist. Once completed, it will appear in your garage. After Season 6 ends, Drift Club Mexico will be part of the Horizon Rush Festival.
