All players are required to start the game with the “Welcome To Mexico” opening sequence and the “On A Wing & A Prayer” chapter.

Based on the number of accolades you earn, you will have an option to choose from the 3 most gripping adventures on the Forza Horizon 5 campaign: Horizon Apex, Horizon Wilds and Horizon Baja. Let’s dig deeper into what each adventure consists of.
