Forza Horizon 5 has been announced at the Xbox & Bethesda, coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC on 9th November 2021. The game will be available in Xbox Game Pass from day one, just like all of Microsoft’s games.
This year’s game is heading to Mexico for the largest and most diverse game in a Forza Horizon game. The Mercedes-AMG Project One Forza Edition was the game used to show off the world, and ray tracing will be available to enhance the look of the car with raytracing in the ForzaVista photo mode.
There will be a new story mode that will have you exploring the environment, such as racing through the Mexican jungles. You could also head to the Caldera volcano (captured with photogrammetry) and explore a small seaside town. The game intends to be faithful from the voice actors, down to the artwork from local artists that plaster the sides of some buildings.
Forza Horizon 5 showcases powerful, all-new graphical features. Experience sweeping vistas and scan the distance to see the adventure that lies ahead. Encounter the smallest of details throughout the world which is rendered with striking realism, down to the smallest details like the light that glows through each needle on a Cholla cactus. Our Mexican HDR sky captures illuminate the world to the point that you will feel as if you are right there. And thanks to Xbox Series X|S, ray tracing is utilized in Forzavista to make the cars look even more true to real life
The world is rendered with incredible detail on Xbox Series X, right down to individual needles on each Cholla cactus, and up to the Mexican HDR sky captures that they took to get the lighting just right.. The in-game shot seamlessly shot from a gorgeous still to live gameplay. It’s an impressive shift…
Returning for this game is the open world battle royale mode The Eliminator, which was added to Forza Horizon 4. There’s Horizon Arcade that adds plenty of arcade game modes like racing around and squishing pinatas, and a new Events Lab that allows you to create new races and games, that can feature gigantic bowling pins and more.
A key new feature is an AI system that tracks the kinds of game modes that you like and how you play with others. If a friend of yours is about to start a particular race or game type that you’re a fan of (or have a track record of playing a lot of), then they will have a prompt to invite you to their co-op multiplayer session.
