I never really figured out how to play Forza Horizon 4 - it was my first Forza since Motorsport 2 on the 360, and I didn't realise that it was essentially an MMO, or GaaS game. Visually, this looks amazing, so I'm hoping being there to play it from the beginning will mean that I 'get' it more.

Probably worth pointing out that I fired up FH4 for the first time in ages and there's new events and stuff (like the businesses), so they've been quietly adding variety. Feels like a good one in general to dip in an out of, stave off some of that formulaic Horizon problem (which I definitely experienced in 4).

It's looks incredible but my interest in Horizon games as been decreasing with each new release and this looks like another game where the roads are as wide as a runway and routes for point to point races are completely forgettable and looking for new events to expand the festival are just a variation on barn finds. Give me the right roads and structure of the original Horizon anytime. But even with all those complaints if I ever manage to buy a Series X this will be the first game I play on it. 


I kind of agree and gave up with FH after 3. What I want from a FH is a cross between Forza, WRC and MotorStorm where vehicles are impacted by the environments more. I want to feel deep ruts off road, rocks and such in river beds, get bogged down in the sand with the wrong vehicle. Routes that can only be effectively travelled in certain vehicle types. I want a more realistic game but I suppose that’s not what FH is. The world looks fantastic though.

Agree. Looks stunning but hope it mixes things up a bit. Still part of GamePass so no massive investment. Just a bit of time.

 

I was hoping we got Japan this time so touch disappointed if I'm honest we've had jungle and beaches in 3. Anyhow it is what it is... And looks great.

The Horizon Festival is headed to Mexico! 

 

This week we announced the highly anticipated next chapter in the Forza Horizon series – Forza Horizon 5, coming this November 9th. Players will get the chance to traverse some of the most diverse landscapes ever seen in a Forza Horizon title including a living desert, a dense jungle, and an active volcano in an authentic and vibrant depiction of Mexico. 

 

Get ready for the return of seasons, first introduced in Forza Horizon 4. Only this time, you’ll feel its impact in unprecedented ways. Each of the eleven biomes found on the new map will be uniquely affected by the change in seasons. So that means if you’re deep in the jungle during spring, expect heavy rainfall, but during the dry season you’ll be able to access and explore areas you can’t reach any other time. No two seasons will ever be the same.

 

You can also expect powerful, all-new graphical features like HDR captures of the vibrant Mexican sky, sweeping vistas, and an unparalleled attention to detail. Available in 4K 30 FPS on the Xbox Series X (1080p 30 FPS on Xbox Series S) with an optional 60 FPS performance mode, and ray tracing added to cars in Forzavista, you will be immersed in the open world of Horizon like never before.

 

We want to give a shout out to one of the cars you saw in the demo - the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE. Reaching a maximum speed of over 350 km/h, the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE transfers the latest and most efficient Formula 1 hybrid technology almost one-to-one from the track to the street for the first time ever. Stay tuned for more information and content from us about the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE and prepare to experience it in Forza Horizon 5 this November. For more information, please visit the AMG web page.

 

But what will you get up to at the Festival in Mexico? Forza Horizon 5 has the most social and connected experience we’ve ever created, alongside a deep and rewarding campaign to expand the Horizon festival.

 

Experience a deep and rewarding campaign, where you’ll meet new characters and determine the outcome of their Horizon Story missions. You’ll take on expeditions across the map, battling the elements in hundreds of the world’s greatest cars.

 

In multiplayer, experience the most social and connected experience we’ve ever created. The Horizon Open takes the best parts of the traditional Forza Horizon online competitive experience and smashes them all together. Seamlessly jump into Races, Drift challenges, Eliminator sessions, and more. Horizon Tour is your chance to meet up like you would at a car meet and race co-op against Drivatars on circuits all over the map, forming up as a convoy as you hop from one race to the next. From there, you can head to the Horizon Arcade, where you quickly and seamlessly take on some truly wild challenges and minigames with other players.

 

Next, our creator community can hit up the EventLab. Imagine the Blueprint Builder you’re familiar with in modes like Super7 and Blueprint races, but blown way out with a powerful new toolset that includes custom races, challenges, stunts, entirely new game modes and so much more that you control, down to the rules of the game itself.

 

After that, it’s time for Gift Drops, like a personalized Barn Find Blueprint. Tune a car, paint it, then leave it hidden for others to find somewhere on the map. It’s a whole new way to share your prized cars with friends or others online.

 

The social aspect of Forza Horizon 5 is huge, with systems like Kudos that allow you to reward other players for positive acts and encourage clean, friendly driving, as well as the Forza LINC system, which enhances your ability to join up with other players by recognizing the things you like to do and finding other players to do similar things with.

 

All these features and so much more are layered into our deepest Horizon experience yet, featuring all new customization options like 100 new rims, hundreds of new visual upgrades like body kits, wheels and paint options, and thousands of performance upgrades. We’ve also completely overhauled the user interface for systems like tuning and painting to improve usability and efficiency. Even the character customization is getting enhanced, with a more diverse cast of selectable characters, customizable hairstyles, the ability to select prosthetic limbs, pronouns, voices, and clothing.

 

Additionally, we’re aiming to make Forza Horizon 5 the most accessible Horizon ever, and can’t wait to share more about our commitment to gaming for everyone.

 

The Festival starts November 9th. However, if you purchase the Premium Edition, you’ll get a jump on the Festival traffic with Early Access starting November 5th. Experience Forza Horizon 5 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows 10, Steam, Xbox Game Pass, and Android phones and tablets via Xbox Cloud Gaming. Players can choose from Standard, Deluxe, and Premium versions of the game. Xbox Game Pass players will have access to the Standard version, and if they purchase the Premium Add-Ons Bundle they can enjoy all the great DLC in the Premium version of the game, including Early Access.

 

Preorder now on the Microsoft Store and wishlist on Steam!

 

We’ll have much more to share about everything we’ve announced so far in the coming months, so stay tuned here, follow us on Twitter and Instagram for more, and check out the Support Site for FAQ and more details now.

 

Get it on November the 5th if you buy Premium DLC pack. That's going to be hard to resist.

Are you saying Forza Horizon is a GaaS-peddle? :hat:

 

Anyway, I thought this was a real stand-out feature of tonight’s showcase. The environments look stunning - it reminds me of the first time I saw Metropolis Street Racer and struggled to distinguish the in-game shots from real life photographs. Breathtakingly insane levels of detail - and that was on a crappy low bitrate stream. Disappointed the cars aren’t ray traced at all times, and that it’s not targeting 4K60, but clearly compromises have to be made when your game looks like this. 
 

FH5 and Flight Simulator have really got me wondering what the hell 343 are up to with Halo.

I bought the $100 ultimate FH4, which still didn't come with all the car packs, and I'd recommend you don't bother unless you absolutely must cane it as soon as possible. By the time the dlc was released, they were starting to feature in sales (or thereabouts).

 

Pace yourself, do sales.

FH4 had 1 extra car pack released 2 years later that wasn't included in the initial deal. The cars were all very unique but ultimately far from necessary.

Yeah, it was just slightly weird that there was extra. It did have VIP though, which is handy. I won't ever do that again, though.

Why do you bother ? If it looks awful at least explain what is so awful  about it then we can engage in some discussion.

I was talking about the first video, NOT the trailer? You’re so defensive. 
 

REREAD. WHAT. I. WROTE. 

 

no one talks like that, listen to the section with the piñata mini game again.

 

fucking hell.
