Forza Horizon 5 Live-Action Trailer Features Ted Lasso Star And Karol G

Forza is life.


Microsoft has released a new advertisement for the upcoming racing game Forza Horizon 5 featuring Ted Lasso star Cristo Fernandez and singer Karol G.

Called "The Getaway Driver," the video features Fernandez escaping a boring life of driving people around and embracing a life of white-knuckle fast driving in Mexico. And then Karol G shows up and challenges Fernandez to a race. The video is pretty slick, and it does a good job at selling the fantasy of Forza Horizon 5's open-world racing ambitions. Check it out below.

Forza Horizon 5 launches on November 9, though the more expensive editions of the game unlock on November 5. For more, check out GameSpot's Forza Horizon 5 unlock time guide to find out precisely when the racing game unlocks depending on each version.
