Forza Horizon 5 Officially Licensed Xbox Controller

If you’re a fan of Forza Horizon 5, then you’ll want to check out Thrustmaster‘s latest offering – a brand new Xbox controller that’s been specially designed for the game. While Xbox themselves have already released a colorful Forza Horizon 5 controller, Thrustmaster’s version comes with a unique feature that sets it apart from the rest.

The standout feature of this controller is the ‘racing wheel module’ that can be swapped out for the analog stick or d-pad. According to Thrustmaster, this module has been designed to mimic the feel of a racing wheel and is equipped with a re-centering system and a 95-degree rotation angle, which provides greater control and immersion when playing racing games like Forza Horizon 5.

While the company’s description of the feature is a bit vague, it’s certainly an interesting addition to the controller and one that racing fans are likely to appreciate. The racing wheel module also features the Forza Motorsport logo prominently displayed on it, which adds to its aesthetic appeal.

Thrustmaster’s Forza Horizon 5 controller is actually a variant of the company’s existing “ESWAP XR PRO CONTROLLER”. It may not be as flashy as Xbox’s offering, but it certainly packs a punch in terms of functionality. However, with a price tag of $200, it’s definitely not a budget-friendly option. Whether or not the racing wheel module justifies the cost remains to be seen, but for serious racing enthusiasts, it could be worth the investment.

In conclusion, while Thrustmaster’s Forza Horizon 5 controller may not be as visually striking as Xbox’s offering, its unique racing wheel module is definitely something to take note of. It remains to be seen how well it performs in real-world use, but for those looking for a more immersive gaming experience, it’s certainly worth considering.

“Experience incredibly immersive racing with the gamepad, thanks to the brand-new RACING WHEEL MODULE. Master your trajectories and drifts, and stay in control on any type of terrain with the module’s 95° rotation angle and non-slip surface.”

“Hot-Swap technology lets you swap modules at any time, to adapt the gamepad to your gameplay — and not the other way around. ESWAP XR PRO CONTROLLER FORZA HORIZON 5 EDITION includes RACING WHEEL MODULE, two mini-sticks and a D-pad. Swap modules in a snap, for the setup that suits you best at any given time!”

“Combining enhanced precision with an extended lifespan of 2 million activations, the next-generation S5 NXG mini-sticks and RACING WHEEL MODULE represent an excellent balance between driving precision, control of your trajectories and overall immersion.”

“You’ll love the super-responsive clicks provided by the mechanical buttons, which are 64% faster than standard membrane-based buttons (tested under laboratory conditions). Say goodbye to lagging response times in games: with an activation distance reduced to 0.01 inches / 0.3 mm, you’ll be able to respond quickly and take control in your races!”

“Adjust the sensitivity and other settings of the mini-sticks, RACING WHEEL MODULE and the triggers with the ThrustmapperX software. When RACING WHEEL MODULE is inserted, the D-pad inputs are automatically assigned to the rear buttons (1, 2, 3, 4). ThrustmapperX is available for Windows, and accessible directly via the Xbox menu!”
