the first hour in the hands of DF

With Forza Horizon 5 entering the Gold phase, the Playground Games team is now ready to debut its new racing game on PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S.

To whet the curiosity of fans, the scenarios of the racing game set in Mexico have returned to show themselves exclusively on Digital Foundry channels. The international videogame editorial team had the opportunity to preview some game sequences taken from the first hour of Forza Horizon 5 gameplay.

With the rich video that you find available at the opening of this news, Digital Foundry has also told its first impressions on the work of Playground Games. After testing Forza Horizon 5 on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, the editors didn’t hesitate to describe the Microsoft exclusive as “amazing”. The team particularly emphasized the technical grandeur of the production, as well as the excellent scalability of the experience. The impressions related to the rendering of the settings and the lighting system, which can count on the implementation of Ray Tracing, are also extremely positive. Digital Foundry has not yet been able to test the game on PC and Xbox One.

Recall that the preload of Forza Horizon 5 is already available, with the racing game that will be available starting next November 9, 2021, on PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S, as well as in the Xbox Game Pass catalog.
