First, fans can follow in Barbie’s high-heeled footsteps with exclusive in-game content for Forza Horizon 5. Just as Barbie hits the road in a classic 1956 Chevrolet Corvette EV convertible and Ken cruises along in a 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup, Forza Horizon 5 players can join them with virtual versions of both cars. Everyone who plays Forza Horizon 5 will be gifted these themed cars. All you need to do is download them from the in-game Message Center and they will appear in your garage, ready for racing.

Another exciting drop from Xbox is a Barbie doll line of 10 diverse dolls decked out in the latest Xbox Gear fashion. These dolls also come with accessories, such as an Xbox Series S console, a wireless controller, and an adaptive controller. Fans can win the dolls as part of an international sweepstakes.

Lastly, bring Barbie’s fashion-forward genius to your gaming setup with interchangeable controller faceplates. They are inspired by Barbie and Ken’s distinct on-screen outfits, including their iconic Venice Beach looks. Fans could also go for a complete remodel of their gaming setup with a custom, glamorous pink Xbox Series S that looks like the Barbie Dreamhouse (pictured top). 

Fans have a chance to win the limited-edition Barbie items starting on July 10 via the @xbox Twitter and Microsoft Rewards.
