Forza Horizon 5 is a racing video game set in an open world environment based in a fictional representation of Mexico.
The game has the largest map in the entire Forza Horizon series, being 50% larger than Forza Horizon 4 while also having the highest point in the Horizon series.The map was described by creative director Mike Brown as one of the most diverse Forza Horizon maps the team has built.
The map contains areas like an active caldera volcano, jungles and beaches, ancient Mayan temples, and cities such as Guanajuato. Players can explore the open world freely, though they can also compete in multiplayer races and complete the campaign mode. Both the cars featured in the game and the player character can be extensively customised.The game is the first in the franchise to support ray tracing on cars (although this is only available in ForzaVista).
