Forza Horizon 5 is available now for pre-load on Xbox consoles. The pre-load could be an interesting idea, since the download is a bit generous at 103 gigabytes. This 103 GB applies to PC and Xbox Series X / S, on the Xbox One the game needs “even more” free hard disk space.
The announcement for Pre-Load by Forza Horizon 5 took place on the official Twitter account and in a blog post on the official Forza website. The post provides the specific file sizes for each version of Forza Horizon 5, including an explanation of why the file size is smaller on Series X than it is on Xbox One. Preloading isn’t currently available on PC, but it should be able to do so soon.
