The next generation of Forza racing, Forza Horizon 5, has now officially been launched. We have already seen the game through some YouTube content creators who published some preview gameplay of the game. And this year is no different. The game heavily focuses on the graphics sector, just like its predecessor.
Xbox has majorly lacked some exclusive titles when compared to competition like Sony’s PlayStation (PS), but this title changes the game. Forza Horizon 5 is an absolutely stunning showcase of the Xbox Series X. From the cars themselves to the Mexican landscape, everything looks better than ever before. Some people even argue that Forza Horizon 5 has better graphics than the recently released Far Cry 6.
Forza is a game series from UK-based developer Playground Games and takes the player around a country, this time Mexico, for completing challenges as well as taking full pleasure in the cars.
Forza Horizon 5 also got rid of Ranked Adventure, the game’s PvP (player versus player) mode. The game’s creative director Mike Brown said that “Ranked Adventure made winning super important. It made people really want to win a lot, and get very angry when they couldn’t.” This move has eradicated the toxic nature of players on Horizon 4. PvP enthusiasts haven’t been ignored, though, and there is a new game mode named Horizon Open.

The driving mechanics are slightly better this time, and this game carries the same user-friendliness. It also seems to be highly optimized for the Xbox Series X and looks stunning on the console. You will get to pick between two video modes in Forza Horizon 5: quality (4K 30fps) and performance (4K 60fps). Just like the choice Forza Horizon 4 offered on the Xbox One X.
While we wouldn’t say this generation is an incremental update, but it is an iterative update. Every time in the Forza series, we receive graphics and location updates, and this time is no different. There is nothing special or different about the fifth generation of this franchise, and it shows a blatant lack of innovation.
Forza Horizon 5 is out November 9 on Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, and Windows 10/11. It has been priced extremely high at Rs 3,499 on Steam, Rs 3,999 on Microsoft Store, and Rs 4,299 at retail. Its premium edition costs an extra Rs 2,000 on Steam and Rs 2,500 on Microsoft Store. The premium edition will be out on November 5, though.
