Forza Horizon 5 was one of the best games of 2021, so it’s no surprise that its recent expansion has had a solid start. Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels launched roughly a couple of weeks ago, bringing a sizeable chunk of new content to the open world racer, and its strong critical reception has been reflected in its growing audience as well.

As per the in-game Hall of Fame in the racer – which tracks every player that has logged into the game at least once – Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels has been played by over a million players since launch. That’s notable in particular because unlike the base game, the Hot Wheels expansion isn’t offered with Game Pass, so these numbers are a much closer approximation of its sales.

As for the base game, as of early June, Forza Horizon 5 had surpassed 20 million players.

In our review of Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels, we awarded it a score of 9/10, saying, “Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels is yet another incredible piece of racing content by Playground Games. There’s easily between 10 to 15 hours of pure, unabashed racing fun in here. It proudly boasts all the many strengths of the game that it’s built off of, of course, but also introduces ridiculous speed, an excellent new map, incredibly fun new tracks and vehicles, and more to deliver what feels like a worthy addition to the Forza Horizon 5 experience.” You can read the full review through here.
