Mercedes-AMG Project ONE stars in the gameplay for the upcoming Forza Horizon 5
Microsoft's Xbox Game Studios recently showcased its new Forza Horizon 5 gameplay and its next-level 'hyper-realistic driving experience'. There were several cars used in this short trailer, but the star of the teaser was none other than the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE. The game is set for its global debut on 9 November 2021.
The Mercedes-AMG Project ONE "Forza Horizon Edition" represents the visual counterpart of the Formula 1 inspired hypercar with levels of details within the upcoming game. Set in the heart of Mexico, the game is said to feature all the necessary elements that represent the car's acceleration, braking, steering, and agility as well as active aerodynamics.
This all comes down to the close cooperation between Mercedes-AMG and Microsoft’s Forza team in order to pull this off successfully. The Mercedes-AMG Project ONE "Forza Horizon Edition" also comes with an exclusive body livery, which won't be available for purchase in the real world. Sorry, Mercedes-AMG fans.
According to Philipp Schiemer, Chairman of the Board of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, "The Mercedes-AMG Project ONE is strictly limited to 275 units in the real world. We’re delighted that there’s now a perfect digital variant exclusively in Forza Horizon 5. Thanks to our close cooperation with #microsoft, we can now virtually offer the unique driving experience of our hypercar to a large group of enthusiasts in the best and most impressive way currently available on the gaming scene."
