Rivian R1 Electric Vehicles Take to the Roads of Forza Horizon 5

The highly anticipated release of Forza Horizon 5 is set to include two electric vehicles from Rivian, the R1T and R1S. Players will have the opportunity to unlock these vehicles through the Festival Playlist during the second and third week of Horizon Creatives. Completing the “Mudslinger's Scramble” EventLab challenge will grant access to the R1T, while the R1S can be unlocked by completing the “Stadium Supercross” EventLab.

The inclusion of the Rivian R1T and R1S in the game is a perfect fit for the adventurous landscapes of Forza Horizon 5, set in Mexico. Whether traversing sand dunes, rivers, or the jungle, Rivian's all-electric vehicles seamlessly blend into the game's environment.

Described as a completely electric pickup designed to conquer any terrain, the 2022 Rivian R1T offers a unique driving experience. This truck can handle off-road challenges with ease and then transition into a sports car-like performance on paved roads. Forza Horizon 5 shares this sentiment, stating that the R1T can handle like a true sports car.

The realistic depiction of the Rivian R1T in the game adds to its appeal. In a previous demonstration by Epic Games using Unreal Engine 5.2, the R1T showcased its capabilities. Fans of the game are curious to see how the R1T is portrayed and how it compares to the real-life vehicle.

While some may find it hard to believe that an electric pickup truck can handle like a sports car on the road, the Rivian R1T in Forza Horizon 5 proves otherwise. Actual Rivian R1T owners might have their own thoughts to share regarding the vehicle's performance.

Overall, the inclusion of Rivian's R1 electric vehicles in Forza Horizon 5 adds another layer of excitement to the game. Players will have the opportunity to experience these cutting-edge electric vehicles firsthand as they explore the vibrant landscapes of Mexico.
