Forza Horizon 5 gameplay
Playground Games is transporting gamers to Mexico in the fifth instalment of the Forza Horizon franchise. Players will now drive on the right side of the road, whereas the previous two games were set in countries with left-hand driving, such as Australia and the United Kingdom.
The Horizon Arcade, which is effectively a rebranded Forzathon Live, is one of the game’s key improvements. It does, however, have 12 co-op minigames, such as crushing piatas, doing super jumps, and breaking speed records, among others.
