Fan-made Forza trailer may be foreshadowing the Forza Horizon 5by Dim Angelov, on LISTEN 01:50
When it comes to racing games, the Forza franchise is one of the biggest and most anticipated titles out there. Currently, Forza Horizon 4 is the latest of the series, but fans are already looking forward to the next iteration of the open-world racing game. Some enthusiasts go even further than that, by making their own trailers of the next game, way before any form of an official announcement. This YouTube trailer, uploaded by Cybergear is a perfect example.
Any Forza game is bound to have a zealous fan base and this video certainly piques the interest. There are already rumors about a Forza Horizon 5 being in development, but until then, this fan-made trailer is what we all get.
This masterpiece seamlessly combines a couple of other racing games, as well as videos from vehicle premieres and ads. The creator himself says that he combined footage of a few other Forza games, among which Forza Horizon 4, Forza Motorsport 7, and 8, with the Penzoil ad “The last Viper” and the Mercedes AMG Project One video.
The live footage from the Penzoil ad actually makes it look more like what Need for Speed did a while back for their Hot Pursuit game, from 2010. We also see some footage from a street circuit, which resembles Edinburgh, so we know that’s Forza Horizon 4. Of course, the more knowledgeable will immediately notice the Yas Marina Circuit from Forza Motorsport 7 or 8, which is beautifully lit at night, just like in real life.
We know this is not Forza Horizon 5, even though the realistic setting might fool a few. From what we’ve heard, they are working on the next Forza Horizon, so the prayers of the fans will be answered. Until then, enjoy this fan-made trailer.
