I would get it as I'm thinking of collecting all the Forza games from the beginning.
Doing the same thing - FH3 and 2 arrived so far and look very good! FH1 is on the way smile

There's an off-road 911 is in the trailer. Is that a real off-road safari type car, or a standard 911 with mods in the game? It doesn't look like a Singer (classic or the modern off-road car they made)

I'm not entirely sure but assumed it was a classic 911 rally from circa late 70s. See link: http://rennfilms.com/jim-goodlett-and-his-1978-por...

Obviously different paintjobs exist, no idea if the one in the trailer is based on a real livery.

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
FH4's off road element was hit and miss IMO. The cross country stuff was garbage but some of the longer point-to-point rally events in the snow / ice were decent.

Likewise. FH5 looks great visually and I'm sure it will be worth playing but did wish it was Japan as it has arguably the most diverse car culture in the world. A lot would've liked to see winding roads / touge (remember Fujimi Kaido?) along with the bright lights of Shinjuku.

Looks decent, will look forward to it dropping on Gamepass later this year, already playing FH4 on Xbox One S which I enjoy as does my 10 year old

The Xbox store gives you the option of preinstalling FH 5 now. Don't get excited - the 280Mb download displays one static image and then closes.

Wonder if I will be able to get a Series X before this comes out ?

Asked in a game shop in the Trafford Centre, looked at me like I had asked for "Fly Fishing by JR Hartley".

I just want some adjustable rear spoiler options that aren't taken from the original Fast & The Furious.

I just want to choose the colour of my interior.

And lots of 60's and 70's land yachts.

New video about the game. Drinking game for the amount of times they say 'Biomes' hehe



Stuff from the video...
The season changes will be weekly as on FH4.
The volcano is in the middle of the map, from the top you can see the whole map area in the game, and from just about everywhere on the map you can see the volcano.
The map will be shown on the next video in 2 weeks, unless they change their mind and say so on twitter hehe .

It looks great as ever, and it’s clear there’s a hell of a lot of work gone into it.

However, I found the season changes to be tedious. Well, winter anyway.. Sometimes I wanted to just pick the game up after a brief hiatus and just cruise round on normal roads, messing around with set ups on tarmac. A few times I’d switch on and find it was winter, so I’d just turn it back off again and wait until the end of the week. I found it really annoying that I can’t play the game exactly how I want to - don’t see how it would be too difficult to just have an offline mode!

I expect I’m in the minority, but we all have our preferences haha.
