After great success, the Forza Horizon Festival left Britain and moved to Mexico. And as the star of the festival, you also crossed that path. This time, in addition to participating in the events, you are also a scout to expand the festival. With the main stage set up, you will find yourself earning points for almost everything you do. So, whether you like racing on roads or dirt tracks, performing crazy stunts or drifting like a maniac, you will be able to progress. It’s your trip, and it’s your privilege to have fun.
Earn enough recognition points and it’s up to you how the festival will expand. You may want to set up a site for cross-country races, PR stunts or street races, which are now officially approved. Alternatively, you may want to extend your engagement at one of the already established locations, unlocking new stories, showing events, or epic races that cover large parts of the game map. After all, it’s all up to you, but you’ll want to unlock all the expansions to enter the Horizon Festival Hall of Fame and gain access to the latest series of events.
For those who have played Forza Horizon 4 and its expansions, there is little that seems new here in terms of events. The stories have changed, and many of them have more chapters. Sometimes you are asked to choose between chapters to progress, although in the end you may want to go back and finish them all. Multiplayer Forthazon events are also customized. You will now find multiple events taking place simultaneously on the map, each focused on a specific type of challenge.
Expeditions are the only type of event that is really new, because you drive to unexplored territory to discover new locations. However, in the end, they are very similar to the events for the exhibition, where you get involved in a healthy place of competition and have fun in situations that lift your hair on your head. The only thing that really sets them apart is their midpoint, where tasks such as finding objects or taking photos can be done to earn extra points.
With all the other Forza Horizon 4 features coming back, such as Wheelspins and Super Wheel Spins, customizable avatars and a weekly series of challenges, it’s easy to get a sense of deja vu with Forza Horizon 5. You’re basically playing the same game, but within a new setting. But is that really a problem? For some, it might be so, but on the whole it is not something they would get hooked on. Especially when the Playground Games display of Mexico results in one of the most diverse and densely packed open worlds ever created.
Mexico is truly a star here, providing beautiful scenery every second you play. This is the largest map found in the Forza Horizon game so far, and it is divided into several different biomes, each of which has something to offer. There is everything from a dense jungle to an active volcano to explore. What’s more, if you have an Xbox Series X, it all looks absolutely stunning. The visual elements are the best in Quality mode, but it’s worth taking a slight hit when switching to Performance mode. This is a game that really benefits from playing at 60 frames per second.
Due to the limited time we had with Forza Horizon 5, unfortunately we still haven’t seen the full impact the seasons have on the world that Playground Games has created. Given that Mexico is a much larger land mass than Britain, it is said that there will be no major changes in the whole. Instead, each season will affect many of Mexico’s biomes in different ways. In the dry season, there will be sandstorms in drier areas of the map, for example. In the end, it should lead to a more diverse and nuanced experience, but we will surely find out in the next few weeks.
One new feature that we especially appreciated is the new car collection menu. Here you can keep track of which cars you own from the absolutely huge list of Forza Horizon 5, and you even get prizes for filling the garage with cars from each manufacturer. Thanks to Wheelspins, awards for recognitions and much more, new vehicles are shared at a decent rate, and it also seems that money accumulates easier than ever, which allows you to create a huge collection very quickly; on which even Jay Leno would envy you. The car collection menu is therefore a welcome touch to keep track of what you own in a quick and easy way.
There may not be much new in Forza Horizon 5 out of his location, but that doesn’t stop him from being another action-packed, adrenaline-fueled racing extravaganza in the open world. This is the biggest and best sequel in the Forza Horizon series so far; it only lacks that spark of originality which made each sequel precede by a clear step in relation to the previous one. But for the vast majority of players, that really won’t be a problem. Forza Horizon 4 has raised the bar to an impressive height, and Forza Horizon 5 raises it a little higher. It’s hard to imagine how Playground Games will significantly increase that in the future Forza Horizon sequel, but let’s hope it finds some magic or the formula could become a little outdated.
