Microsoft’s latest racing game launched with Xbox ANZ performing a stunt replicating the initial drive from the game.

Forza Horizon 5 has officially launched and to celebrate Bastion ExperienceBastion Amplify and Pulse partnered with Xbox Australia and New Zealand to perform an airborne stunt inspired by the game’s ‘Initial Drive’ opening sequence, dropping a Polaris buggy from the sky at a height 4500 feet; the vehicle parachuting to the ground like each of the four cars seen in the initial drive experience.

The launch kicks off a huge holiday season for gamers with the much-anticipated launch of Halo Infinite just weeks away.

Forza Horizon 5 is on Xbox consoles, PC on Windows and Steam, and Xbox Game Pass including console, PC and Cloud Gaming (Beta).
