The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S from Microsoft were the best-selling consoles at launch.
At their most recent E3 2021 showcase, Microsoft introduced Forza Horizon 5, bringing its virtual car festival to Mexico for a cross-country adventure encompassing all types of terrain. This November, the open-world automotive sandbox will be released for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, with significant improvements across the board and the largest map in the series to yet. Microsoft has also set performance goals for its new Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles.
Following the reveal, the creators updated the official Forza website with more details about the game. The resolution and frame rate targets for Forza Horizon 5 are [email protected] FPS on the Xbox Series X and [email protected] FPS on the Xbox Series S, respectively. Furthermore, while ray tracing was mentioned at the E3 2021 preview, it will only be available in Forzavista when exploring automobiles.
According to a post on the official Forza Motorsport website, Forza Horizon 5 will aim at 4K resolution at 30 frames per second (FPS) on Microsoft’s top Xbox platform, Xbox Series X. The Xbox Series S will have comparable performance at a lower resolution, with a native resolution of 1080p at 60 frames per second. Microsoft also intends to offer a 60 FPS mode, which will downscale images to achieve a greater framerate on these devices. On Xbox Series consoles, the game will offer ray tracing at launch, but only in the “Forzavista” mode for watching automobiles.
“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.”
Unlike the impending soft reboot of the Forza Motorsport series, which was created from the ground up for next-generation devices, the next entry in the Forza Horizon series is also going to Xbox One. With the limited supply of Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S systems projected to remain through 2021, the game’s Xbox One release will make it enormously more accessible. In comparison to its predecessor, Forza Horizon 4, Microsoft has yet to clarify how Forza Horizon 5 will run on Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X.
Forza Horizon 5 will be released on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC on November 9, 2021, with preorders starting at $60 for the basic edition. The weather in these seasons is said to have a considerably bigger impact on your experience, with different maps being “uniquely altered” by the season you’re playing in your pc.
New systems, such as increased graphic fidelity, expanded draw distances, harsh weather effects, and an overall bolstered open world, seem to be the key advancement of Forza Horizon 5. We already have a long list of Forza Horizon 5 vehicles, with more to be revealed in the coming months.
