New Forza Horizon 5 trailer blows audiences away


By Ray Ampoloquio August 24, 2021

Forza Horizon 5 is about to let gamers race through Mexico in a way that's never been done before.

Microsoft and Playground Games' virtual preview event before the start of Gamescom 2021 was definitely something else.

The press never really got any chance to play Forza Horizon 5 at Gamescom 2021. 

The opening was more than enough to leave audiences all around the world with a brand new appreciation of Mexico.

Playground Games has done a masterful job at subverting expectations by releasing three successful sequels.

Each Forza Horizon installment has been better than its predecessor, with Forza Horizon 4 being the best yet.

Many also consider Forza Horizon 4 one of the best racing games available today.

Graphically, Forza Horizon 5 is a huge step up for the series.

However, one can't help but wonder if Playground Games has done enough to improve on the series' formula.

So far, Playground Games have said all the right things about Horizon 5.

The game doesn't just have open-world racing events and side missions, it also has a massive Mexico map.

There are also plenty of other things to do in Horizon 5 as well.

For example, the Events Lab allows players to and participate in player-created events.

With that said, only time will tell if Forza Horizon 5 is an improvement over Forza Horizon 4.

With that said, roll on November 5, 2021!
