Forza Horizon 5 Hot Wheels orange track

The full Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels expansion map has been revealed

A lot to see, even more to do.

Playground has dropped the first full look at the map of the Hot Wheels Park for the new expansion, Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels. With four distinct biomes and miles of the new, iconic orange-colored track to drive on, this is statistically the largest expansion to a Horizon title yet.

The rollercoaster like track design is on full display in this top-down map of Hot Wheels Park. It clearly shows that the entire map forms a shape close to that of a globe, with the biomes separated as their own, distinct floating islands.

 

Tracks for days

In the center is the new Horizon Nexus festival site, which serves as  ground zero for the new map. Players will begin their Hot Wheels adventure here, and then branch out to each of the other three biomes. They can all be directly accessed from this point on the map as well.

To the north of Hot Wheels Park lies Forest Falls, which has the tracks suspended above tree canopies and looping around towering waterfalls. The western region is where Ice Cauldron is found, featuring a dual-edged landscape of fire and ice. Finally, there’s Giant’s Canyon to the east, where the tracks go in and out of its meandering rock formations.

Along with these diverse regions, Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels will also contain unique challenges in the form of different types of tracks. Some sections include magnetic strips that allow cars to stay grounded while defying the laws of physics. Then there are the environmentally-charged ice, water flume, and rumble tracks that use the power of nature to create intense hazards.

As prominent Forza content creator Don Joewon Song pointed out via Twitter, the new Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels expansion contains 200km (124.27 miles) of new roads to explore. This is nearly double that of the original Hot Wheels expansion that graced Forza Horizon 3. The competition will heat up soon as the flags drop for Forza Horizon 5Hot Wheels on July 19.
