12:01 AM, November 5, 2021 EDT
16:01 pm, November 5, 2021 GMT
New Zealand is first
New Zealand will be the first nation to access the Horizon Festival. It may even be there by the time that you read this. Some Xbox players even admitted to switching the timezone to get access to the Kiwis.
Forza Horizon 5 preload
You can preload Forza 5 before the release date if you’ve preordered it digitally or physically. Do not forget to load the game in advance. You don’t want this to slow down your progress while you’re exploring the Mexican landscape.
How do I get Forza Horizon 5 early Access?
Horizon 5 early access is available to those who have purchased the Premium edition of the game. If you already own any version of the game, but feel you may need early access to Horizon 5, you can still purchase the Premium Add-Ons Bundle. This will allow you to get into the game on November 5th.
Forza Horizon 5 general release time
If you are content to wait for the gates to open to all, you can still enjoy the festivities on November 9. Although there is no set release time for general access at this time, we have been given an official timetable to allow early access. We will most likely receive confirmation as soon as possible. Don’t forget to preload your files while you wait.
