Can you change the time of day in Forza Horizon 5?

The main question players have been asking of late is whether or not it is possible to manually change the time of day in Forza Horizon 5. This could be for photography reasons, or simply just the aesthetic pleasure of a night or daytime background.

At the time of writing, there is no known adjustable setting for the time, meaning you cannot change the time of day in Forza Horizon 5. Though it is worth noting that the time cycle only takes about 1 hour and 40 minutes to complete.

Around the last 10 minutes of the cycle are considered as "nighttime" when players can enjoy a sun-down driving period. Though there is a bit of a work-around found on the time of day topic.

How to enter night mode in Forza Horizon 5

While the time cycle for day-night in Forza Horizon 5 runs automatically, there is a way to force the game into a night setting. Players can do this by entering specific events that are programmed to take place at night.

A number of street races like the Ruta Norte event take place at night, and will automatically change the setting of your open world no matter what time you entered the race.

 

That's all about how to change the time of day in Forza Horizon 5.
