It's set in Mexico. Out on November 9th on Game Pass.



The AMG One hypercar, new Defender, new Bronco and the Taycan are in the trailer, probably some others I didn't spot.

Gameplay video



Biggest Horizon map yet, raytracing, a volcano.

Looks good so far, they're adding more visual customisation options too which is great. Just need to sort the car sounds out wink

The gameplay video says it's the biggest map vertically too, the mountain parts look like they make Fortune Island a bit of a hill hehe . So, what are spring, summer, autumn and winter like in Mexico? The FH4 seasons were: a bit wet, sunny, a bit wet again and SNOW!!!

I have started to consider junior's request for a series X too since seeing this... (I've already pre-ordered the premium pack with the early access, car pass, VIP membership, 2 extensions (whatever those will be) and some cars)
It is designed to also run on the One S, which should buy me some time.

However, loading times in FH4 are already horrendous and FH5 graphics just look amazing on series X hardware...

Doesn't really sound like they did (Lambo in the trailer for example).
This is my main issue with FH4 (next to the aforementioned loading times)

Have Game Pass, so only added the pack with the extension compared to the basic game (with 10% reduction).
I probably used the wrong name...

It looks good, but I've never cared much for the story aspect so not sure about the "expedition" thing.

Can't say Mexico would be the first thing that came to mind when I think of car culture. Although the series has moved away from that and into Lego and Fortnite dances anyway.

Sneaky little shot of working convertible tops has been doing the rounds, you can see it here on the 720:

Definitely. If you look on r/forza there are hundreds of outraged posts about it not being in Japan. Most of them read like they've been written by a 15yr old who hasn't yet realised that everything in life wont go their way. Seems there was very heavy focus on off-road in the trailer which isn't my cup of tea but I know there was lots of complaints about 4 not having enough good dirt tracks so maybe they're making up for that

I think it looks alright. It would have been good if it was in Tokyo or somewhere more city like. I have had FH2, FH3 and FH4. It looks like they have gone back towards the FH3 sand etc. I normally just cruise in the FH games which in FH5 I can't tell if it is any good for that. They have turned more towards a arcade game to appeal to youngsters with the Stadium etc. Would be interested if it's better than FH4 with a wheel. Most importantly better loading and correct sounds.

I would get it as I'm thinking of collecting all the Forza games from the beginning.
