The new technology will also include a brand new volumetric lighting system.

Speaking during the original announcement, creative director Mike Brown described the next Forza Horizon game as “the largest, most fun and most beautiful open world we’ve ever built”.

Some gameplay news has also been shared, including the return of the ‘seasons’ that were introduced in the previous Forza Horizon entry.

The weather from these seasons will reportedly have much more of an effect on your experience – different maps will be “uniquely affected” by whichever season you’re playing in.

Elaborating, the blog states “if you’re deep in the jungle during spring, expect heavy rainfall, but during the dry season you’ll be able to access and explore areas you can’t reach any other time”.

Forza Horizon 5 will be launching on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on November 9, 2021.
