Forza Horizon 5, the next open-world arcade racer from developer Playground Games, is racing to Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC this November. Ahead of its release, Playground has revealed the full PC specifications for the game along with steering wheel support. Thankfully, it won’t require an ultra-powerful PC to run Forza Horizon 5 at minimum requirements, though you may want to have the more high-end parts to play it at its full potential.
Starting on the lower end of the minimum GPU requirements for Forza Horizon 5, players will at least need an AMD Radeon RX 470 or NVIDIA GTX 970, which isn’t taxing at all. Players will need an AMD Radeon RX 590 or NVIDIA GTX 1070 for the recommended requirements, while an AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT or NVIDIA RTX 3080 will be needed for those ideal specifications. Across the board, you’ll need at least 110GB of free space (which is quite hefty), though may also give us an indication of what the file size might be for Xbox consoles as well.

Forza Horizon 5 is the next entry in the Forza Motorsport spin-off series that places an emphasis on open-world arcade racing as opposed to its track-based simulation racing counterpart. Players will explore the beautiful vistas of Mexico in the fifth game, including sprawling deserts, picturesque beaches, dense jungles and forests, and populated towns littered around the map. Playground also revealed its full roster of cars, giving players over 420 to play around with (and more to come in future updates and expansions for the series). You’ll be able to experience all that Forza Horizon 5 has to offer when it launches on 5 November 2021.
