The next Forza Horizon game is launching soon, and is perhaps one of the most anticipated games of the year already. So far we’ve seen lots about the new location, the single player campaign etc., but what about multiplayer? Thankfully, the latest stream with the developers touched on all things online, and what you can get up to in the revamped multiplayer.

Perhaps the most interesting is that Team Adventure mode has now been replaced with Horizon Open in Forza Horizon 5. This includes 4 categories: Open Racing, Open Drifting, Playground Games, and The Eliminator (the very strange but very fun Battle Royale mode). But there’s also Horizon Tour and Horizon Arcade for more multiplayer goodness:

Playground Games has decided to put more emphasis on having fun this time round, rather than simply winning, which leads to many more opportunities to just play around with friends and enjoy the world and its cars. We’ll be hearing more about FH5 in the lead up to launch with more Let’s Go! livestreams planned before it releases in November.

What do you think? Are you excited for Forza Horizon 5? Are you interested in the multiplayer at all? Have you been watching the streams? Let us know!

Have you played much Forza Horizon multiplayer before?

I voted for the third option. As I have said in previous comments I am lobing FH5 more each time I see it. I haven't been this excited or even remotely interested in a racing games since Underground 2. And even though I abhor battle royales and vowed never to play them, this might be my first fling with one.

If anything, multiplayer tasks in seasons annoy me in FH4 xD


So many times you're given a race to beat against "unbeatable" avatars and you have to do it with other people, who usually can't drive and then all tail in the back, giving the bot team all the points and giving the humans none. Playground games I don't really care for either, even though it counts towards the season if you are on the losing team as well.
