Good news adrenaline-seekers! Forza Horizon 5 is on its way and the cover art features a
AMG One (only 1000-plus-hp!) and the 2021 Ford Bronco Badlands. Not bad for a mere sneak peek.
This next-generation racing game features some upgrades you're going to love. Go off-roading in a Mexico-based virtual world you'll have to see to believe. Yes, the graphics are that good!
Now, if only that outrageously fast Mercedes-Benz offered mind control within the game. Imagine how much faster your reactions would be if they could just bypass your hands!
The specs, features, and experience of driving these cars in the game make it almost as good as driving these cars IRL. Almost.

What's new in this next-generation racing game?

According to
Car and Driver
, highlights include an improved physics engine for better handling. You're going to need them to manage the tricky terrain and challenging obstacles of that Mexico-based open-world map.
The simulation-like effects mean the suspension and brakes will feel more like a real vehicle. Watch out—there's a bumpy road ahead for drivers in this game! The Mexican environment includes everything from deep sand to rutted dirt roads to smooth pavement.
There are rivers, swamps, and lakes to cross, too. Just to keep things a little extra interesting, the developers have also added in a few adverse weather events. You'll face everything from dust storms to tropical monsoons along the way.

Realistic vehicles are key to the Forza Horizon 5 experience

If you liked the Ford Bronco Badlands on the cover, you're going to love driving it in the game. That's right, you'll first experience all of the game's stunning new features and graphics through the windshield of the Badlands as you take off on this thrilling new racing adventure.
If it feels like you're driving a real Ford Bronco from the comfort of your game room, well, you are in a way. The Forza design team goes to extraordinary lengths to get the details perfect on every vehicle in the game.
They take over 2,000 photos of each vehicle and model the game vehicles on those photographs along with CAD (computer-aided design) models.
That means if a particular model has unusual or even unique features, so will the vehicle in the game. Every vehicle is as realistic as a team of passionate designers can make it.
Vehicle manufacturer specs are followed to a tee. If you don't like something about a particular vehicle in real life, you're probably not going to like it in the game either.
For instance, Formula 1-style ground clearance is apt to encounter a few difficulties in this largely off-road game. Yes, we're talking about you, Mercedes-AMG One!
