It’s time to start the engines – Forza Horizon 5 is on its way and it’s coming faster than you thought.
We got a longer look at Forza Horizon 5 during the Xbox E3 2021 show – and it looked really cool. The game received 4K/60fps/packet confirmed tracking and is built from the ground up with the latest generation of consoles in mind.
It takes place in a “real” recreation in Mexico and we saw a group of sophisticated cars that tore up dust in the desert, slithered through cities and inundated with stormy weather.
Beach buggies and off-road buggies are once again involved, in what developers Playground Games are calling the largest open-world racing game to date. The power of the new generation of consoles allows you to see several miles across the map and the game will focus more on plot than previous Forza Horizon titles.
It will also have a lot of new features, including a real-time multiplayer mode, a Battle Royale “Eliminator” mode and even some crazy mini-games.
Also introduced was the Event Lab – a suite of tools that allow fans to create their own races, game modes and crazy challenges. We got a glimpse of bowling, giant jumps and big fans of tossing vehicles into the air.
But what we noticed the most was the visual. This is going to be a really beautiful game that takes full advantage of the power of Xbox Series X. Everyone’s eyes will be on Sony by now – can Gran Turismo 7 match the ambition and beauty shown here?
