Forza Horizon 5 is a huge and open world, and it has a lot going on. There’s a lot to learn for new fans coming to the series. And even for old fans returning, there’s a lot to get used to. The new game has added new events and race types, and redone a lot of technical aspects. Forza Horizon 5 also added some new mechanics to wrangle.
But as you learn the game, you want to really open her up and explore the world. With racing games, everyone wants to race around with their friends.
Once you get past the tutorial, you should be able to unlock online in Forza Horizon 5. The co-op and online modes are locked when you first boot up the game. You need to play a bit to unlock them. The online mode is now referred to as Horizon Life.
When playing through the basic races, focus on finishing tutorials and starter challenges. This will eventually unlock Horizon Life. You will know this happened when you see the “Welcome to Horizon” message come up on your screen.
You can then form a Convoy with your pals. This is the way the game presents lobbies and in-game groups, allowing you to stay grouped with your friends in events.
If you’re new to the franchise, you can find a bunch of different things to do, and the complexity might overwhelm you. There are actually a bunch of difficulty options to help with this. You can adjust assists to make racing easier. And the amount of car customization is pretty nuts, too, offering plenty of options. Get out there and have fun.
