Microsoft and Playground Games have shown off the full map for Forza Horizon 5 and, as expect, it is big. Really big. Ridiculously big, in fact.
If this were any other kind of open-world game, I'd argue it might be a little too massive - but where racing games are concerned? The bigger the better. Which means Forza Horizon 5 might just be the best yet.
Playground Games previously promised that Forza Horizon 5 would boast the series' largest and most diverse map to date, and that certainly looks to be true. The upcoming game is set across what almost the entirety of Mexico, with cities, towns, beaches, mountains, and forests to explore/crash into. Entire areas of the map will even change up massively depending on the season.
"Your ultimate Horizon adventure awaits! Explore the vibrant and ever-evolving open world landscapes of Mexico with limitless, fun driving action in hundreds of the world's greatest cars,' promises the game's official synopsis. You can check out the entire map for yourself below.
Aside from being the biggest, as if that alone wasn't enough, this is also quite clearly the best looking game in the series yet. Playground Games has made use of all manner of fancy tricks such photorealistic skies and volumetric lighting to produce a game that looks as close to photorealistic as anything I've ever seen. Speeding through Mexico should be an absolute treat, although I'm worried the vistas might just be so stunning that I struggle to keep my eyes on the road for very long.
