Ultra-popular series made in Xbox, Forza Horizon will bring freedom-loving gamers to the benefit from this Tuesday, November 9. But, joy of the early access, he is already a few laps ahead.
Forza Horizon 5 topped one million players in less than 48 hours. Success is therefore there. And the figure, discovered thanks to the leaderboards, all the stronger since the Playground racing game will only officially be released this Tuesday, November 9, 2021 on Xbox and PC. If it is indeed playable since Friday, November 5, it is in early access.
Thanks to whom, to what?
And to all those who would see there the simple work of Xbox Game Pass to make up the reality of sales, it should be added that this Early Access was not open to the first subscriber. To ride in the middle of the Mexican countryside in advance, you had to have your hand in your pocket. Or by pre-ordering the Premium Edition, at 99.99 euros. Either, while having subscribed to the Game Pass, cracked for the set of Premium extensions of Forza Horizon 5 (44.99 euros). From there, we can say that it has already grossed between 45 and 100 million euros as you read these lines. Which, even before its arrival in stores and on the Xbox Game Pass Day One, demonstrates the popularity and expectation around this license.
As a reminder, Forza Horizon 4, released in 2018, had reached 2 million players in one week. We learned in November 2020 that it had exceeded 24 million. Who knows how far his successor will go, for which you can always read our TEST if you want to know more.
