What can you play when Forza Horizon 5’s servers are down?

The Horizon series can be played offline but at the cost of several features.

Players will lose access to private convoys, community creations from the Event Lab, the Horizon Arcade, and races will be populated with drivatars instead of other humans.

There are still plenty of ways to enjoy the game while offline though, like collecting all the vintage Barn Finds that are hidden around the game’s supersized map.
