Playground Have Shown off Forza Horizon 5’s Eleven Environments

Forza Horizon 5

Playground and Microsoft have highlited the eleven different environments that will feature in Forza Horizon 5. 

This open-world drive-em-up’s map is one-and-a-half times bigger than the previous Forza’s, plus it takes place in Mexico, so there’s a wealth of different biomes to drive around.

“We knew from the beginning that we wanted this to be the biggest Forza Horizon yet. However, if we wanted to be the biggest, then we felt we also needed to offer the most diversity and contrast as well,” explains Mike Brown, Forza Horizon 5’s creative director.

It’s certainly something we’ll appreciate; the first thing we did when we got our hands on Forza Horizon 4 was to drive off the road and just explore, seeing if we could make it all the way to Ambleside, shortly followed by bothering some sheep. Who needs to do things like “race” or “win”?

The environments the game will feature are:

  • Canyon
  • Tropical coast
  • Farmland
  • Arid hills
  • Jungle
  • Living desert
  • Rocky coast
  • Sand desert
  • Swamp
  • Urban City of Guanajuato
  • Volcano

Of these environments, the one that appeals to us the most is the jungle area. It reportedly contains several ancient temples which we’re looking forward to using a ramps, vandalism be damned.
