The festival in Mexico is about to kick off. On November 9, Forza Horizon 5 is going to take players to the North American home of mariachis, tequila, and tacos. Exploring the new open world on your own is sure to be great fun, but it can also be very entertaining to see what other creative minds make of the game. Whether they invent new races and game formats, teach us secret tips and tricks or just entertain their audience with their comments on the game.
So, in this list, we gathered five YouTube and Twitch creators you should check out for amazing Forza Horizon 5 content!
The British content creator FailRace is a veteran of YouTube, having uploaded his first video on Forza Motorsport 3 in June 2011. Since then, he has been inventing new formats and challenges in a variety of racing games.
Today, FailRace is mostly known for his GTA V and Forza Horizon content. One of his most successful formats is “Survive the Hunt”, in which he tries to act like an AI car as best he can. Meanwhile, chasers from his community try to spot him and, when they do, FailRace tries to avoid being caught. More than half a million people follow his adventures on YouTube.
Sometimes, creators not only entertain us but also help us to understand our favourite games better. If you are looking for good advice on basically every topic in Forza Horizon, you should check out HokiHoshi.
The American has created Forza Horizon 4 guides for beginners and pros, on the topics of tuning, racing lines, offroad racing and more. Last year, he also created a tutorial about drifting for OverTake, which you can check out here! We are sure he is going to enlighten us about all we need to know in Forza Horizon 5 as well. But HokiHoshi (aka Rob) is not only a great teacher but also just a very pleasant guy to watch for a relaxing evening on Twitch.
The Canadian creator AR12Gaming calls himself a “race car driver, comedian, 5 star chef, helicopter pilot and a massive liar”. What we can confirm is that he is truly passionate about racing games in general and especially about Forza Horizon.
While most other creators are still waving goodbye to Forza Horizon 4, AR12, or Nick, has already put in massive hours into the new game. So much so, in fact, that he has already been able to create videos on all barn finds or the best roads to find in the Mexican open world.
rAii from ‘Die Pixelhelden’
Even though he only creates content in German, Mathieu ‘rAii’ Wacker has to be on this list. On his channel ‘DiePixelhelden’ he has created almost 1000 Videos on Forza Horizon 4. In order to stay entertaining throughout his many videos, rAii had to invent new formats over and over, for example “Cops vs Racers”, in which a team of police cars try to catch one single speeder.
In an interview with OverTake, rAii spoke about how he believes inventing new content formats not only strengthened his channel, but also the entire Forza community. He also spoke about how he thinks his way of engaging the community into his videos is unique on YouTube. Check out the full interview linked below.
Australian creator EricShip started his career on YouTube with videos on “Call of Duty”, eleven years ago. In 2014, however, he uploaded his first video on Forza, the game that would make him famous on the platform. His most successful videos are cinematic drag race videos he produced in Forza 5 and 6.
Today, Eric’s channel boasts around 343,000 subscribers. He focuses mainly on The Crew 2 and Forza Horizon as his main games. In his content, he focuses less on Let’s Plays or race footage. Instead, he puts out a lot of informative pieces in which he presents secret places to discover or customization body kits he recommends. Also, he has produced various opinion based videos in which he talks about features he still misses in the games or concerns he has ahead of the release of Forza Horizon 5.
