Is the Forza Horizon 5 Formula Drift Cars Pack DLC worth it?

Best answer: Yes, the Forza Horizon 5 Formula Drift Cars Pack DLC can be worth it to some players, but only if you're very interested in the competitive drift racing cars included in the DLC and don't want to spend extra on the Car Pass or Premium Add-Ons Bundle (both of which include the Formula Drift Cars Pack). If that's you, this DLC offers decent value for the eight included cars.

The car list in Forza Horizon 5 features hundreds of incredible entries, including eight Formula Drift cars that are sure to serve any player's drifting needs. Those looking for even more cars to add to their garage, particularly of the competitive drifting variety, can also pick up the optional Forza Horizon 5 Formula Drift Cars Pack DLC, with includes an additional eight unique cars. For the asking price, this DLC offers decent value to car collectors, but its appeal is decidedly limited by other DLC options for Forza Horizon 5.

The Formula Drift Cars Pack is of course included in the far more expensive Forza Horizon 5 Premium Add-Ons Bundle, which bundles almost all FH5 DLC into one quintessential package for any hardcore Forza Horizon 5, with considerable discounts baked into the final price. Even if you're not interested in everything the Premium Add-Ons Bundle has to offer, the Formula Drift Cars Pack is also included in the Forza Horizon 5 Car Pass, which pairs the former with an additional 32 cars (one added every week).

If you're loving Forza Horizon 5 or intend to sink a ton of time into this epic game, it's worth it to consider the Premium Add-Ons Bundle. Alternatively, car collectors may be better served by the more complete Car Pass, which offers a total of 42 unique cars not included in the base game. The Formula Drift Cars Pack is a solid DLC option for Forza Horizon 5, but only if you're specifically interested in the included cars and not the benefits provided by other DLC bundles.
