After bringing the EP9 to “Asphalt 9: Legends” last year, NIO is about to make the supercar available in another well-known racing game. The Chinese EV Carmaker will have its EP9 Super car featured in the world’s top racing game “Forza Horizon 5” on February 3. This is making it the first Chinese-branded supercar in the game.
“This 1,360-horsepower performance beast will once again ‘go beyond the limits’ and travel to Mexico in the virtual world for an adventure in the tropics,” NIO said.
Forza Horizon 5 is a racing game developed by Microsoft
. The game was first released on Win10/Xbox/Steam platforms in November 2021, and is regarded as the pinnacle of open-world racing games, according to NIO.
The game was nominated for the TGA Global Game Awards, known as the “Oscars of the gaming industry”, and the IGN 2021 Best Game of the Year award.
The NIO EP9 broke the lap record of the German Nürburgring, known as the “Green Hell”, and many speed enthusiasts have only been able to watch its speed from afar, NIO said, adding that now, in the virtual world of “Forza Horizon 5”, the dream becomes a reality.
