We have learned that the map of Forza Horizon 5 will be much larger than that of the previous installment. In more detail than ever, the performance of Forza Horizon 5 is now known on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
This article has been updated with information about the performance mode of Forza Horizon 5 on Xbox.
Definition and framerate of Forza Horizon 5
The Forza Horizon 5 gameplay trailer (bottom of page) has impressed many players. It must be said that the environments of Mexico, coupled with the talent of developers to create worlds with realistic lighting effects, lend themselves rather well when it comes to caressing our retina.
After revealing the framerate and resolution of Forza Horizon 5 on Xbox Series X in standard mode, Playground Games then released the same information on a performance mode.
- Xbox Series X mode standard : 4K en 30 FPS
- Xbox Series X mode performance : 4K en 60 FPS
- Xbox Series S mode standard : 1080p en 30 FPS
- Xbox Series S mode performance : 1080p en 60 FPS
Since the definition is the same in standard and performance mode with a doubled framerate, we can legitimately wonder what the standard mode could add to not support 60 frames per second.
For the moment, the developers have not communicated more on the subject, but we can imagine better particle effects, improved shadows, additional details or even a better viewing distance in the standard mode in 4K and 60 FPS. .
Forza Horizon 5 Ray Tracing will not be enabled in race mode
During the presentation of Forza Horizon 5, Ray Tracing was mentioned by the developers. But don’t think that this one will be activated in the game itself since it will only be offered in Forzavista mode.
Forzavista is a mode that is not that of a race or a walk in the world of Forza Horizon. This is a function that allows you to approach a car with ultimate details, for lovers of beautiful cabins. We haven’t seen this mode in action yet, but the image below should give you a taste of what to expect, with reflection effects more realistic than ever.
