Forza Horizon 5 will be released next week but fans can get their hands on the highly anticipated entry to the renowned racing franchise a little bit ahead of time.
Early access is actually available for players who opted to buy the more expensive Premium Edition of the game. There's still time to pre-order, but be warned it'll set you back $99/£84.99 for the privilege.
In exchange, you'll get four days of early access play before anyone else, plus the Welcome Pack, Car Pass (42 extra cars), VIP Membership and two game expansions when they become available.
