Xbox Australia are well known for performing stunts to celebrate every major game launch, and we thought it was hard to top last month’s Age of Empires cereal, but they’ve bloody done it.
To celebrate the launch of Forza Horizon 5, Xbox has dropped one of the game’s most iconic vehicles out of the sky, the Polaris, to replicate the initial drive from the game in the middle of the Victorian country-side.
If that wasn’t cool enough, the driver has literally dropped from 4,500 feet straight after it and then driven the Polaris through the countryside as if nothing had happened.
Forza Horizon 5 is out today on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows 10 and Xbox Cloud Gaming. We gave the game a 9.5/10 in our review and said:
“Though it’s iterative in a lot of ways, Forza Horizon 5 is a near-faultless open-world racing experience that’s so sure of itself and its offerings that it goes the extra mile to sprinkle in the kinds of fan service that people go wild for. As a game it’s tremendous, but it’s also a brilliant, interactive postcard for a culture that is passionate about few things more than their country and their cars.
