Forza Horizon 5 Looks Jaw-Dropping in 8K60 Gameplay Video

Forza Horizon 5 is here at last, well at least it is for those who bought the premium version. However, if you’re a games pass gamer like myself, you’ll be waiting until tomorrow for the final rollout to everyone. It looks like it has been worth the wait too, as Playground Games have a track record of phenomenal game engines, and this is no exception. YouTuber’s Digital Dreams has shared a video of the game running at GPU busting 8K resolution, with Max Settings, and honestly, it looks like the game is running pretty smooth. Sure, they’re running it on an RTX 3090, but that’s still impressive to see smooth gameplay. It’s not fully 60 FPS, but it’s pretty damn good.
It takes about 1 second to realise this is a great looking game. Sure, the driving in the video isn’t much, but it’s more a sightseeing tour than anything else so I appreciate the slower pace of this one. The game uses photogrammetry, which means real-world photos turned into in-game assets, and it really shows.

The lighting system and the reflections look great too, with incredibly colouring and detail to both of them. Albeit, it looks like it’s only using Screen Space Reflections, and I would love to see this with ray-traced reflections in the future, officially or by the hands of a mod.
Forza Horizon 5 will be available to everyone tomorrow, November 9th. However, if you take out the premium upgrade to the games pass version or buy the full premium version, you can play it right now.
