Forza Horizon 5, the new game in Playground Games’ open world racing series, seems to have made a great start. Microsoft’s Head of Gaming Phil Spencer, in his statement on Twitter, states that the game has already broken the 4.5 million player milestone, and this also marks the biggest launch day ever for an Xbox Game Studios game. The new game’s simultaneous player peak is also reportedly three times the player count of Forza Horizon 4.

Forza Horizon 5 has only managed to reach the peak of 70,000 simultaneous players on Steam so far. However, we can clearly say that the lion’s share of the player base is on console, PC and Xbox system via Game Pass available in the cloud. The game continues to be played with great interest since its first release. According to the evaluation made by Metacritic, the PC version of the game received a score of 91 out of 100, and the Xbox version of the game received a score of 92 out of 100.

Finally, it should be noted that Forza Horizon 5 received a lot of praise for its accessibility options. The game features support for American Sign Language and British Sign Language, which was specially designed with the help of the disabled community and used in the cinematics. It also includes a game speed change setting that allows players to play at a lower rate, customizable subtitle options, high contrast mode, color blindness mode, text-to-speech, and spoken-to-text features.
