Developer Playground Games debuted some new footage of its latest game, Forza Horizon 5, showing off what races will look like in its new Mexican setting.
In the latest episode of Forza’s YouTube show, Let’s ¡Go!, you can clock some of the dirt roads that you’ll be racing on give way to a rich and luscious jungle, with real-time reflections from standing water really showing off how impressive the newly upgraded graphics are.
One of the most interesting insights is how the movie Predator – which was filmed in the jungles in Mexico – provided some inspiration for the way the developers put some of the biomes together. Just make sure not to focus on the trees too much when you’re driving, otherwise you’ll be in for one hell of a fender-bender.
The latest Forza Monthly stream brought us a look at the full map of Forza Horizon 5, as well as new gameplay exploring some of the game’s biomes.
In a new Forza Horizon 5: Let's Go live stream, the developer detailed FH5's wet season summer map before uploading a high-resolution image to Twitter. The map is 50% bigger than Forza Horizon 4's Britain and features prominent landmarks such as the La Gran Caldera volcano, which can be seen from anywhere on the map, a stadium in the centre, sand dunes out to the west, and a long highway (the longest in any Forza Horizon game) that cuts through the centre of the map.
The Forza Horizon 5 opening race that Microsoft just demonstrated during Gamescom's Xbox Stream is, frankly, ludicrous.
The new gameplay footage, that shows off the 2021 Ford Bronco Badlands (one of the game's newly-confirmed cover cars) dropping down from a plane onto the La Gran Caldera volcano, only gets more intense as it goes.
If you want to learn more about the cover car (and its companion, the Mercedes-AMG ONE), Mike Brown, creative director of Forza Horizon 5 at Playground Games, explains the choice of those vehicles below.
"We’re thrilled to unveil the cover of Forza Horizon 5 featuring the Mercedes-AMG ONE, which marks the first time a car features Formula 1 hybrid technology almost one-to-one from the track to the street – putting this power in players’ hands allows them to explore Mexico’s streets and roads in an unprecedented way," says a press release.
"Joining the Mercedes-AMG ONE on the cover is the 2021 Ford Bronco Badlands, primed to deliver rugged, off-roading across Mexico’s vast terrain like those amazing jungles and deserts."
If you’re planning on playing the game on PC, whether that’s through the Microsoft Store or via Steam, Playground Games has now revealed the full system requirements for the game across three presets- minimum, recommended, and ideal.

The developer says that regardless of whether you have a modest rig or a state-of-the-art computer, Forza Horizon 5 has been optimized to run well across all of its graphical presets.
