Xbox Series X owners have long been waiting for a big new AAA release to grace their consoles, and they’ll be rewarded for their patience this holiday season when Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 are released, alongside a host of new additions to Xbox Game Pass.
Leading into the big end of the year, the team at Xbox has lifted the lid on Forza Horizon 5 during a gaming extravaganza overnight, with a gamescom 2021 showcase that included eight glorious minutes of the game in stunning 4K.

“Presenting the first eight minutes of Forza Horizon 5, exploring our expansive version of Mexico. Featuring Forza Horizon 5’s cover cars, the Mercedes-AMG ONE and the 2021 Ford Bronco Badlands, and landscapes such as the active, snow-capped Gran Caldera volcano, a dust storm in the Mexican farmland, and dense jungle tree canopy,” developer, Playground Games, says as its introduction to the game.
Forza Horizon 5 is set to hit Xbox Series X and Series S on November 9, leading into what stands to be a huge end to the year for Xbox.
The Forza franchise has reached new heights in the past few years, with the series’ staple franchise, Forza Motorsport, seemingly taking a back seat to the more “fun” and arcadey offerings of Forza Horizon.
Forza Horizon 5 promises to take things to an even higher level of crazy, arcade-style racing, and this eight minute video proves just how confident Xbox and Playground Games are in the formula. Check it out!
