Get in, losers, we’re going shopping as the new Forza Horizon 5 Barbie crossover adds one of the snazziest vehicles to the racing game’s already dense garage.

Spotted by players on the game’s unofficial subreddit, a new Forza Horizon 5 Barbie crossover is coming to let players race in the iconic doll’s pink, plastic automobile.

Fans noticed that two new vehicles are being added to the game in order to advertise the upcoming Greta Gurwig movie starring Margot Robbie. While developer Playground Games has yet to reveal this new crossover, fans have already found evidence of it in the game itself.

Players found evidence of the film’s gorgeous 1956 Corvette EV as well as the movie’s 2022 Hummer EV Pickup. Both vehicles feature prominently in the movie’s trailer, especially that stunning pink Corvette. 

Fans are mixed on the game’s new Barbie additions, but not for the reasons you think. While many are excited for the introduction of the 1956 Corvette EV, many are unhappy with the 2022 Hummer EV Pickup. This is because the game already added the vehicle last week, and this movie tie-in version is likely just a respray with some minor detail changes.

Players are also hoping that the game also adds new vehicles to tie-in with Christopher Nolan’s upcoming Oppenheimer movie. Barbie and Oppenheimer are currently box office rivals with both movies releasing in cinemas on the same day. 

The addition of the Forza Horizon 5 Barbie crossover isn’t too surprising. Playground Games has a strong relationship with Barbie IP holder Mattel. Previously, the two have collaborated on Hot Wheels expansions for the open-world Forza games resulting in some of the best content ever available in a racing game.

The new Barbie movie launches in cinemas on July 21st worldwide. You can currently play Forza Horizon 5 on Xbox One, Xbox Series and PC. The racing game is also available in Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass subscription service alongside other first-party games like Halo Infinite for no additional cost.
