Forza Horizon 5 drops this November
Most expansive and detailed Horizon world yet
Tired of not being able to travel? How about a trip to Mexico with the best cars, trucks, SUVs, and racers in the world to drive however you feel like? That’s right, it’s nearly time for the Horizon Festival. Last night at E3, Playground Games and Xbox revealed the launch trailer and gameplay for Forza Horizon 5.
It’s an incredible new landscape, and for the latest installment in the Horizon franchise one of the most diverse yet. There will be 11 different biomes on the map that includes landscapes like a living desert, dense jungle, and an active volcano.
This time, not only do seasons change, they change depending on the region. Hit the jungle in the rainy season and expect flooding. Come back in the dry season and the team says you’ll find places you couldn’t access before.
The Mercedes-AMG Project One is the feature car this time, the 350 km/h-capable road car that brings F1 hybrid tech to the street. This will be the first place you get to drive one when the game drops on November 9th.
Other new features include a more seamless multiplayer experience as well as the new Horizon Arcade full of challenges and minigames. The event builder has expanded from the Super7 mode recently launched in Horizon 4, and players will be able to make their own barn finds for others to discover in a new feature called Gift Drops.
Check out the trailer for a look at the sands, seas, jungles, and, yes, that active volcano. With cars like the new Bronco, that Mercedes-AMG, safari-style Porsche 911s, and a few other intricately detailed surprises.
If you want an even closer look, here’s the official gameplay reveal, which has the developers and in-game voice actors showing you what the game will actually look like.
