Where Is Forza Horizon 5 Set?

Forza Horizon 5 is set in Mexico, pulling together several biomes to create an interconnected open-world map. It's not exactly a 1:1 creation, instead feeling more like a greatest hits of the country. This means you'll see everything from ruins to beaches and even a snow-capped volcano. Here are some of the main features to look out for:

  • Snow Capped-Volcano that features the highest point in a Forza game ever
  • Lush Jungle areas with thick foliage and tress
  • Sandy beaches perfect for drifting
  • Colourful towns with tight turns and tunnels
  • Tropical storms and towers of sand that can spread across roads that you are driving on
  • Vast Canyons
  • Hidden ruins

As the seasons change, so does the weather. Snow comes into play in the winter, and storms will be more prevalent during certain seasons. Expect all kinds of driving conditions, and tune your cars accordingly.
