The Forza Horizon 5 Rally Adventure DLC expansion lets you take the race off-road into the badlands of Sierra Nueva. If it’s your first time delving into the newest add-on content, it’s not entirely obvious how to start the DLC expansion. Here’s what you need to know.
Where to Start Forza Horizon 5 Rally Adventure Explained
Rally Adventure is part of the Premium Edition and Premium Add-ons Bundle for Forza Horizon 5, but if you haven’t purchased either of those versions, you can get the expansion on its own for $19.99.
Once you’ve purchased the Rally Adventure DLC, check to make sure the base game is updated to the latest version.
In-game, you’ll need to have progressed further until you reach the main Horizon Festival site to acquire your first car. Then, you should see the Forza Horizon 5 Rally Adventure icon in the northwest portion of the Mexico map. Head to that location to start the Horizon Badlands Expedition.
From there, you’ll drive a couple of new vehicles, including the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Platinum and the 2001 Ford #4 Ford Focus RS. This is also where you’ll learn of a new feature where your co-driver will note any turns, jumps, or track changes as you advance further.
When that’s done, you’ll be able to start the Rally Adventure DLC expansion in earnest. You can explore Sierra Nueva at your leisure, but it’s probably best to get a few activities done so you can choose a team. This will unlock additional sets of challenges for you to complete.
And that’s how to start the Rally Adventure DLC in Forza Horizon 5. If you wish to return to Mexico, you can open the Campaign menu and click on the Travel to Mexico option to head back, or just fast travel by highlighting a road on the main world map. Conversely, if you want to return to Sierra Nueva, check the Rally Adventure tab and select the Horizon Outpost option. It’s really that easy to bounce between the base game content and the expansion. Look for more Forza Horizon 5 guides here on GameSkinny.
