Thanks to a new partnership between Extreme E and Forza Horizon, players can now pick up all ten Odyssey 21s as part of Season 10 of Horizon 5’s Festival Playlist. Not only that, but the latest round of the Playlist itself has been adapted with Extreme E in mind, bringing new challenges and seasonal events which take inspiration from the real-world series.
Events will take place across Horizon’s Mexico map, hitting up different terrains and environments each week. The Summer “Island X Prix” season, features a race along the east coast by Playa Azul. The Autumn “Energy X Prix,” a race to the city of Guanajuato. Winter takes inspiration from the upcoming “Copper X Prix” with a canyon race. And lastly, the Spring finale will take players through Baja in Dunas Blancas for a “Desert X Prix.”
“This partnership between Extreme E and the Forza franchise has brought the Championship to a new platform and audience,” said Ali Russell, Chief Marketing Officer at Extreme E. “It has been great to work together to bring the Extreme E Odyssey 21 e-SUV to Forza Horizon 5 players who are enthusiastic about electric vehicles. We are excited for more people to see what electric vehicles are capable of and showcase the series in a new light.”
Additionally, Forza Horizon 5 will be showcased at Extreme E races going forward, proving that this partnership really is a two-way street (pun intended).
