The next major update for Forza Horizon 5 has been revealed
Beginning November 8th, Forza Horizon 5 PC gamers can anticipate significant enhancements to the game’s PC version. The Donut Media series update on that day will provide players with the choice of using NVIDIA DLSS Super Resolution or AMD FSR 2. The former is exclusively accessible to gamers who own NVIDIA RTX graphics cards, while the latter is open to all PC graphics card owners. The game will also enhance ray tracing with the addition of two additional settings. The game’s existing Medium and High ray tracing settings will continue to function as previously, but only in Forza Vista. Ray tracing will, however, be available in races, photo mode, and free roam in the new ultra and extreme modes.
“Enabling NVIDIA DLSS Super Resolution or AMD FSR 2 will increase your Forza Horizon 5 framerates while also improving visual quality.” These resolution upscaling capabilities will be included in the Donut Media series update, which will be available for download on Tuesday, November 8, through the Microsoft Store and Steam, according to the game’s website. “In addition, we’re improving our DirectX Raytracing implementation on PC with two new presets Ultra and Extreme, which generate realistic Drivatar reflections in Photo Mode as well as true-to-life reflections for the player vehicle in Free Roam and Races.” Ray tracing is still possible in Forzavista, as it was before.
Playground Games suggests the Extreme ray tracing option for people with “perfect” PC specifications, rather than the minimum or recommended. According to the game’s website, the team has “nothing to report today” on DLSS 3.0. That seems to be a hint at a future announcement, but fans will have to wait patiently until then. Of course, Forza Horizon 5 was always visually amazing, but these additional upgrades should be quite exciting for PC players!
