Forza Horizon 5 is not beyond the horizon, rather the first big Xbox Series X title is just a few days away from its release.
Set in a fictionalised representation of Mexico, the twelfth main instalment in the legendary racing series comes packed with content designed to showcase the capabilities of Microsoft's latest console and test the limits of your PC.
The ultimate driving experience, as developers call their game, will arrive with approximately 520 cars on launch, with at least additional 42 vehicles set to arrive via post-launch updates.
If your need for speed (pun intended) needs to be satisfied as soon as possible, worry not, as you will be able to play the game in a few days, once the game enters early access, or a bit later if you haven't preordered the premium edition.
