Playground Games shows you the full map of Forza Horizon 5 up front, giving you an impression of how much virtual Mexico is.
Forza Horizon 5 will launch in about three months, and now we also know what the racing game’s world map looks like.
On Twitter Developer Playground Games has published an image of the map that shows you how vast the world is in Part 5.
There you have the usual network with many different streets, where you don’t know otherwise from the chain.
Likewise, many interesting sights and sites can already be recognized, for example, a stadium, a dam, an airport, beaches, cities and much more.
Virtual Mexico has many different biomes to offer, and some screenshots and information have been released recently to illustrate the differences.
According to previous information from Creative Director Mike Brown, the Forza Horizon 5 map is about 50 percent larger than its predecessor and you can already see different areas on the map – from a volcano to a forest to beaches and dry desert areas.
As in Forza Horizon 4, you can expect different seasons and known weather conditions. So don’t be surprised if you suddenly get caught in a summer storm on the tropical coast.
In order to create a realistic sky, parts of the team traveled to Mexico and returned 75 terabytes of images from there.
Among other things, there will also be a 60fps performance mode in the game; Forza Horizon runs at 4K resolution with 30 frames per second by default. Ray tracing is only used to a limited extent, but Playground also uses ray tracing for audio.
Forza Horizon 5 will be released on November 9, 2021 for Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Xbox One.
