We know Forza Horizon 5 is now confirmed thanks to the announcement on the Xbox Showcase yesterday. We now know more about the performance of the game especially, in particular, the versions for Xbox Series X/S. After the consoles launched in November Playground games did upgrade the current version of the franchise. As we know that was Forza Horizon 4.
This is the first Horizon title to be in development with the most powerful hardware available. We also get to hear of how the seasons’ system that debuted in Horizon 4 has been expanded for the latest entry in the series. The official Forza Horizon website has told us seasons will return and the impact in-game will be felt in “unprecedented ways”.
The game features 11 biomes in total, all in which be affected by the change in seasons uniquely.
If you’re deep in the jungle during spring, expect heavy rainfall, but during the dry season, you’ll be able to access and explore areas you can’t reach any other time. No two seasons will ever be the same.
It looks like the seasonal weather will have more of a gameplay impact than could be done on Horizon 4.
