Horizon 5 will release later this year on November 9th. Both a gameplay trailer and developer deep dive were shown off, and each showed off the stunning new visuals coming later this year.
Fans of the Horizon series know what to expect: a large open-world full of different racing events and a host of official cars to customize and drive. A new event builder is coming in Horizon 5 though, which will allow players to build their own events to share with others in the open-world.
The deep dive detailed the map of Mexico, sharing how the team used accurate geometric data to capture and authentically map their “largest open-world” yet. The game is being built with next-gen in mind, but it release on Xbox One alongside Xbox Series X, Series S, and PC.
