Horizon 5 looks absolutely gorgeous from the glimpses we’ve seen thus far.

Making up all the biomes, this translates to the map of Forza Horizon 5 rounding out to be around one and a half times the size of Horizon 4’s map, so this is quite the substantial difference this time around.

There’s no doubt this is gearing up to be Forza’s most ambitious project yet, and while we know what a large portion of the map is going to look like. We still don’t know a whole lot about the cars that are going to be in the game.

As of now, we only have seen around 50 within the game, and Horizon 4 featured 400 So, there’s still a lot we don’t know going to be driveable, but we’re sure this news is going to flow in within the coming months.
