Posted on November 4, 2021 by Paul Thurrott in Games, PC gaming, Xbox, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X with 3 Comments

Forza Horizon 5 will be released November 9, but Premium Edition buyers can unlock the game early, starting at midnight local time tomorrow, November 5. So it’s time to preload the game on Xbox or Windows.

“Forza fans, are you ready to explore the largest, most diverse open world ever in a Forza Horizon game?” Microsoft’s Mike Brown asks rhetorically. “Starting tomorrow, November 5, jump into Forza Horizon 5’s early access where you discover living deserts, lush jungles, historic cities, hidden ruins, pristine beaches, vast canyons, and a towering snow-capped volcano, all while you lead breathtaking expeditions across Mexico’s gorgeous, ever-evolving landscape.”

Those who purchased Forza Horizon 5 Premium Edition or the Premium Add-ons Bundle on Xbox or Windows PCs can unlock early access at 12:01 a.m. local time on November 5. If you purchased the game on Steam, early access unlocks globally at 12:01 a.m. ET on November 5.

For everyone else, Forza Horizon 5 launches globally on November 9 on Xbox consoles, Windows PCs, and Xbox Game Pass.

    Premium Add-ons bundle is discounted to £35.99 for Game Pass subscribers. Have to admit I bit.

    I'm just going to play it when I wake up Friday as I work from home still. I know if I start at midnight I'll go to bed at 3 am and get 4 hours of sleep and be useless Friday.
