Forza Horizon 5 is here to take you on a trip

Welcome to the festival! Forza Horizon 5 is now here, as the latest entry in the popular open world flavor of the Forza video game series. And boy, will it take you for a ride!

End of the year is busy season for Microsoft when it comes for gaming. And this final quarter is in no mood to disappoint. We already got our hands on Age of Empires IV a few days back, and that well received RTS game will soon be joined by the highly anticipated Halo Infinite.

Sandwiched between the two is Forza Horizon 5, as one of the biggest video game releases of 2021.

After being released in early access 4 days prior to those buying the Premium Edition, the fifth iteration of Forza Horizon is now available for everyone to play. The game already crossed the milestone of over a million players — just from its early access period alone.

Check out the official launch trailer:

Developed by the wizards over at Playground Games, this time the action shifts to Mexico, after Australia and the UK in the previous two entries.

They have been enjoying playing with some of the most exotic cars in its large and vibrant map that does a great job of showcasing why this is the best Xbox racing game around. Maybe, you know, even the best racing game, period.

Forza Horizon 5 is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Windows PCs as well as Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Cloud Gaming.

Take a road trip by getting it on Steam or the Microsoft Store.
