Live Out Your UTV and Baja Dreams in Forza Horizon 5

The open-world video game’s fifth iteration is a virtual UTV paradise.

Forza Horizon is one of our favorite places to do the things we can’t—or at least shouldn’t—try with our UTVs in the real world. For those of us who happen to enjoy video games, Turn 10 and Playground Studios are bringing us Forza Horizon 5, their latest project, this fall.

The series’ world travel continues in Mexico, home to some of the planet’s most exciting off-road terrain. Horizon 5 boasts the “most diverse open world ever,” covering deserts, jungles, volcanoes, beaches, and ancient cities. It’s more expansive and more beautiful than ever.

Lucky for us, side-by-sides are an integral part. In the trailer, we spotted what looks to be a Polaris RZR among other off-road buggies like the Ariel Nomad and race-spec desert racers. Horizon 5 has a bunch of other off-road goodies, like Safari 911s and the new Ford Bronco. And that’s just that start: As always, Horizon offers a collection of vehicles large and diverse enough to tickle any enthusiast’s fancy.

Forza Horizon 5 will be available for multiple platforms when it goes on sale this fall. Those interested can preorder Forza Horizon 5 now or pick it up online or in person upon its release this November 9. Consider us excited, and very ready to launch a wildly overpowered RZR off a comically high jump at every opportunity.
