Playground Games has been improving upon an already excellent formula with each new Forza Horizon game it has put out, and it looks like with the series’ next step forward, it’s achieved something special. Forza Horizon 5 is promising the series’ biggest and most diverse experience yet, and as the hype continues to build in the lead-up to its imminent release, Microsoft has released a launch trailer for the game. Check it out below.
Forza Horizon 5 takes players to Mexico, where rather than simply participating in the Horizon Festival, you’re tasked with helping set it up. There’s a vast variety of races and activities across several disciplines, including street races, road races, cross-country races, PR stunts, and various Showcase events. Players can also expect hundreds of vehicles, a variety of optional side activities, a vast open world, and much more.
