During this stunt, the helicopter dropped a Polaris RZR car with a fit-in parachute. And then a driver jumps off from the helicopter. In some time, both of them para-gliding smoothly towards the ground.

In fact, there’s a chance for fans to win the skydiving helmet that was used by the driver in this stunt. Unfortunately, this deal is only for New Zealand and Australian fans. Xbox pulled off this entire stunt to promote their newly launched game Forza Horizon 5.

This stunt exactly copied the “Forza Horizon 5 Official Initial Drive Trailer” opening scene where fans can see a 2021 ford bronco badlands skydiving its way to the Gran Caldera volcano. This is a mind-blowing scene from the trailer, honestly. No doubt, Xbox replicated this entire scene beautifully. Have a look at the trailer below.

Forza Horizon 5 is thriving

Here’s what Tania Chee, who is the Xbox Business Lead of New Zealand & Australia, had to say:

As one of the most anticipated releases of 2021, we knew we had to reach for the sky for Forza Horizon 5 to create our most exciting stunt yet.
