The announcement of Forza Horizon 5 during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase made quite an impression on the audience watching Microsoft's presentation. Journalists were also delighted with the new installment of the racing game series, which can be seen both in the previews, as well as the results of voting during E3 2021 Game Awards. To the admiration of visuals and various gameplay improvements must be added praise for the size of the virtual Mexico. According to estimates by Nick "AR12Gaming" Adrev, the new Forza offers more than 107 km2 of terrain to drive. Indeed, the developers promise (via IGN) that FH5 will offer a world one and a half times bigger than the fourth installment (about 71.46 km2) and almost twice as big as Forza Horizon 3 (about 60.4 km2).
