Wave goodbye to Blighty as the latest instalment in the Forza Horizon franchise moves to sunny Mexico.

Announced today at E3, the Forza Horizon 5 launch trailer showcases a series of fantastic new high-performance cars and some seriously impressive scenery.

The game follows the same formula as previous entries. Expect plenty of cool cars to drive and plenty of different surfaces to race them on. A series of fun minigames have also been confirmed, including a piñata smashing game.

Interestingly, there was no news on the relaunched Forza Motorsport series. A short trailer was showcased last year but no real news has emerged since.

Forza Horizon 5 launches on November 9, 2021, and will be playable on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC. It has been confirmed to be part of the Xbox Game Pass.
