Before its launch takes place on November 9, Microsoft has premiered at Gamescom 2021, a video that anticipates the first 8 minutes
The trailer exposes the first minutes of the game in full. The initial bars start at a frenetic pace and from the beginning it is clear who is the king on this track: the Mercedes-AMG One. But the sequence covers many more kilometers leaving evidence of many other vehicles and biomes regardless of the graphic plot, that defines itself.
The format chosen to start the game repeats the steps from previous installments. From the first second, the player will pilot in order to reach the registration point of the festival, doing the tutorial tasks. However, at the beginning of ‘Forza Horizon 5’, unlike the others, we will start to pilot after falling from a ‘Fast & Furious’ style plane aboard a 2021 Ford Bronco Badlands, a perfect vehicle for the initial terrain, a volcanic mountain that unfolds until reaching the circuit.
Shortly thereafter, what looks like a huge and colorful Airbus A400m, “drops” a 2020 Corvette Stingray, with which it will be necessary to plot a course on an asphalt track with green fields, until the moment of entering a sandstorm and disappearing before a vast wall of orange dust.
The introduction continues with the sample of different scenarios and the air giant delivers, this time, a Porsche 911 configured for rally that makes its way through a dense forest with lots of mud and puddles, passing through a small town where it is possible to see a church in the background, in addition to many important details that sometimes go unnoticed by speed.
And finally, the cover car, the most modern Mercedes AMG of the moment. A super-car with which we will travel the coast directly to the Horizon Festival.
The creative director of the game, Mike Brown, assures that it will be possible to activate different “modes” in the cars. An example is the Mercedes AMG One itself, in which the sports mode can be activated. With this the car, for example, will lower the suspension and raise the spoiler.
The feature could be implemented thanks to the additional development time forced by the pandemic and they ensure that it will be active in several vehicles. Forza Horizon 5 is coming to Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, and PC on November 9. It will be available on Xbox Game Pass from launch day.
