With Forza Horizon 5 officially launching this week, players will get to explore a whole new open-world map. This time, the Horizon Festival takes us to Mexico, offering some of the most beautiful visuals we’ve seen on the Series X, the series’ incredibly fun racing gameplay, and more cars and events than you can shake a gear stick at. To help you get that perfect launch off the line, we’ve compiled a list of five things you should know before starting Forza Horizon 5.
Quality & Performance Graphics Settings
If you’re playing Forza Horizon 5 on Xbox Series X|S, there’s one thing you’re going to want to do right away and that’s choose between the Quality and Performance graphical settings.
Quality is the mode you’ll want to play for the best-looking experience. Shadows and lighting effects look superb, and the game runs at 4K, HDR 30FPS. It also uses ray-tracing but only in the Forzavista mode used for viewing car models up-close.
Performance mode is what you’ll want to select if you’re wanting to steady 60FPS. By choosing this, the game will still run at 4K, HDR but some of the graphical options are turned down a little to help meet that steady and silky smooth framerate.
You are able to change between these options at any time, but doing so will cause the game to restart before any changes are applied.
