'Heads up, Forza Horizon fans, during the recent Forza Horizon 5: Let’s ¡Go! – Episode 10 live stream, it was mentioned that Forza Horizon 5 had gone gold. The version of the game that was shown off during the recent live stream was also the final build of the game. Which the participants were happy to announce. What does this mean for you? It means that Forza Horizon 5 will not be delayed in any shape, and once November 9th gets here, you’ll be able to play the game on the Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. They also did mention that information on pre-load will be announced in the upcoming future. They didn’t say if that would be during another live stream or via Xbox News Wire. Either way, it’s great to see that Forza Horizon 5 won’t be delayed, and we’ll be playing it in just a few weeks.

Read more at The Outerhaven: Forza Horizon 5 has officially gone goldhttps://wp.me/p9C4eV-ThT'

I think it's going to be a solid 8/10 - Excellent but more of the same.

I wasn't, and this applies to GT as well, but seeing Jeff play, it looks extra dull, and even Jeff is bitchin'.

Dull. Its as if they gave you an empty map with nothing in it, and you just randomly b line it cuz its there. Its the AssCreed of racing games.

It may get a Gamespot 8/10. Maybe if MS tell the reviewers it's coming to the PS5 as well. ;-)

@hardwenzen: I don't play Assassin's Creed so I can't draw a comparison. My last Horizon was FH2 and I recall the driving/racing to be pretty good. The open world is meant to be played at your own pace though depending on what sort of match you're looking for; were you expecting more traffic? More destruction beyond cones, fences, guard rails, etc? What do you want in the map?

Well, for example; If you drive in a sandstorm, i want to at least feel the wind. You look at the video i posted above, while Jeff is driving through it, its like there's an orange filter that sets up on your screen, and that's your sandstorm. If you add weather effects, at least do a proper job. BF2042 is a good example of this.

In a standard racing game, the racing is the main reason to play. In an open world game like this, racing is most likely not the main thing most will be doing. For a game like this to be entertaining, i want it to feel lively. The RDR2 of racing games.

As is, its just a flat field with trees and empty houses. No idea how one finds fun with such aimless gameplay for more than 5 hours. Too much freedom is not a positive.

Jeff said at the end he thinks it look cool and is looking forward to playing the full game.

And racing is still the thing you do the most in FH. There are dozens of different races to partake in across different racing types.

At least this will be fun to play unlike RDR2 which while pretty was a chore to play in my opinion.

He said it looks cool (do you think he wants to create drama pre release by pooping at the game?), but he also has said a million times how its just FH4.

@hardwenzen: Sand "dynamic rumble" is more of a mechanic than a map filler. Bizarre but if that increases immersion then okay. You want the game to feel lively, so what should it have? More densely populated events so less drive time in between races?

Aimless, assuming there's no incentive to compete in events or participate in any duels/racing.

Did you play the previous FHs?

I played FH3.

If driving in the jungle/forest, i want to see plenty of animals as an example. So you can stop in a nice looking place you fund, and take pictures and whatnot. In a city, if there's one (and there's better be one, and not a small one), i want to see a densely populated zone with cars, people walking, etc. I want it to feel alive like a standard racer cannot be.

The only racers worthy of 10/10 scores are Burnout 2, 3 & 4 & Motorstorm 1&2. The rest are pretending to be real, or arcadey or a horrible meshing of the 2!!!!!

I'm sure Forza will score 8-9's+ & deservedly so for it's fanbase & those that like that type of gameplay, they are obviously doing it right, just like Gran Tursimo caters to those fans.

Bought a nice TV recently and fired up my first Forza game with Horizon 4 on gamepass the other day. Never had interested in racers, but that game looks great!

I will certainly check out Horizon 5 when it releases on the service. Game looks like the MS Flight Sim on land.

9-9.5

In order for it to score a perfect 10, it would have to innovate the racing genre, and there's not much more you can do really. Horizon already has it all.

Definitely looking forward to this, and hoping for some kind of Hot Wheels-like expansion.

I'm guessing 8 on Gamespot, 9 on metacritic.

@above_average: I could see it garnering an "8" for being too "samey" -> a hybrid of 3+4. However, I also expect a 9

Can see it getting an 8 on GS and high-80's on MC since it doesn't seem to be doing much to change the formula, but it will be another solid entry

Interesting, seeing animals and taking photos, Pokemon Snap style, would increase your enjoyment in a racing game?

As for pedestrians in a racing game, there's a clear issue amidst collision factors and the game's rating amidst the open world setting. There are spectators that fill the stands and barriers amidst the closed circuits. This isn't Grand Theft Auto and the game isn't marketed for something like that. Curious to how the presence of pedestrians in a racing game would also increase your enjoyment.

I’ll say between an 8 and a 9. Forza games rarely disappoints and IIRC, a Forza game haven’t scored under an 8 since it’s debut, and with this being a Forza game built for the xsx/xss, unless they royally screw up, this game won’t be getting anything under an 8.

@girlusocrazy: Bingo! My brother bought me Paradise for the ps3, I think I played it for 20-30 minutes and never touched it again. I'll still pick up and play Burnout 2&3 though because they're just way better games.
