Forza Horizon 5

The Forza franchise, for a while now, has always been a reference point and a true showcase of what gaming hardware is capable of at its best, and from the looks of it, Forza Horizon 5 is no different. The game, from the gameplay trailers, looks every bit a technical powerhouse as fans had expected it to be, and the best part is, the game comes out on PC as well.

It being on PC means that players might need to pack serious hardware in order for the game to run without issue. Playground Games has released the system requirements for the massively anticipated racing title, and it honestly looks far more comfortable than expected.

While the “Ideal” specs are quite the sight, the Minimum and Recommended Specs aren’t exactly that far out of reach.

I possess the dexterity of a toddler when it comes to fighting games, but the confidence of a hundred Jay-Z's. Absolutely love narrative-driven games - with a particular obsession with indie side scrollers and retrowave scores. Currently playing: Disco Elysium for probably 5th time in the last 6 months.
