So it is Mexico then. Oh well. I will say the environments really do look absolutely gorgeous. Tho there seems to be an overwhelming influence on offroading.

So this means I have until November 9th to try and obtain a series X. And being day 1 gamepass is nice also.

Forza Horizon 5 provides three different ways players can participate in the Horizon Festival which serves as the focal point of the game. The first way is through the new story mode which will guide players all around the Mexican open world map motivated by a narrative filled with new characters and events.

The second way is the Horizon Open, a PvP (player vs. player) experience which emphasizes casual, fun gameplay and includes racing, drifting, mini games, and more all in one place. Other players can seamlessly jump in to join the party and bow out when they want to move on to something else.

The third way is called the Horizon Tour. In this mode players can join up with each other in the open world map and race against a crop of AI-powered opponents. In between events players can hang out in a style that is similar to a car meet and then drive together as a group to the next location on the tour.

IDAFC21 IDAFC21, that last paragraph sounds an awful lot like how The Crew works....and I'm excited by that.

Well that sounds cool. I wonder if they're still going to have houses in this one, or if the festivals will revert back to being your main hubs like in prior games since they're going back to multiple festival sites in this game. I wish a game would bring back houses with garages you could set up like test drive/gotham/crew/etc

I can't believe Gotham was never revived in some form. Or that it's not even fucking BC.

Hm. This is kinda a mixed bag. I will say the Viper exhaust is GREATLY improved over 4. Even tho i own all the vipers in that game, I REFUSED to drive any of them because the exhaust was so so GOD AWFUL and sounded like it was missing on at least 4 cylinders. The one thing I will say is that it does seem like F5 does a better job of capturing the spatial audio of the vehicle depending on where it is in the environment. Compared to 5, 4 just sounds like the microphones are fixed to the bumpers of the cars. I also chuckled that 5 seems to capture the DSG farts from the Golf R :mamoru: Mook Mook

More details. Starting to sound like I might just be playing this game on my PC, especially if i cant wrangle a series X by the time this game launches.

Maybe the audio is just cranked up for the video but the cars all sound overly loud and seem to echo even tho they shouldn't. Supra still sounds like crap.

Looks good graphically tho.

What’s the state of the Series X? Can you buy them at retail?

My only plan so far is keeping an eye on newegg shuffle, as they occasionally have series x's up for grabs

This might be the one that kicks me over the edge on buying a new console. Mostly because I'm sure my laptop isn't fast enough to run it and even if it was it'd look bad on whatever graphics I've got

I haven't felt the need to buy a new Xbox (I already have the PS5) but with no firm date on the new GT game from Sony, I may buy an Xbox for this.

God damn, if you skip ahead to the gameplay, the environments look outstanding.

Just watched the whole thing. The environment is definitely stunning, and the map is huge, but man it seems like there is a LOT of open space. Hopefully the cars and the racing can live up to the environment
