Forza Horizon 5 is almost here, so it's time to put the wallpaper from this wonderful game on your desktop!
For its latest outing, the racing sim is heading to an "authentic" recreation of Mexico and will boast the series’ largest open-world environments to date. Expect to traverse jungles, deserts, urban sprawls and ancient ruins as you tear through the rubber of the world’s fastest – and prettiest – cars.
A lot of those things can and will happen in free-roam just naturally, while you're exploring, but this gives a more curated way to do it. At the end of each Expedition, you open up a new Horizon festival site, and with that opens up a load of new races.
As we've said before, Forza Horizon 5's Mexico map will be made up of 11 distinct biomes, each offering a different driving experience - as well as localized seasons and weather conditions.
It turns out that Forza Horizon 5 will use ray tracing to affect the game’s audio, which is used throughout the world. The game will send out ray-traced audio paths that can detect walls, buildings and ceilings as well. This means you’ll hear the roar of your car’s engine sounds bouncing off of all the buildings around you, and that will change depending on the environment.
