The release date for Forza Horizon 5 is quickly approaching, and today we’re learning more about the PC version of the game. Not only are Microsoft and, therefore, the team at Playground Games sharing updated PC recommendations for Forza Horizon 5, but the 2 companies have also shared supported peripherals for the game. If you’re getting to dive into Forza Horizon 5 with a racing wheel, then this information is certainly for you.
In a blog post to the Forza website today, Playground Games announced that it’d revised the minimum specifications previously listed on Steam and, therefore, the Microsoft Store. The studio shared minimum, recommended, and ideal specifications both for AMD and NVIDIA rigs.
As you’ll see, those are some rather beefy specifications to run this game at its ideal settings, with Playground listing the RTX 3080 and Radeon RX 6800 XT within the ideal specifications. To satisfy the minimum specification, you’ll still need either a Radeon RX 470 or an NVIDIA GTX 970, while the recommended specs list the Radeon RX 590 and, therefore, the GTX 1070. Finally, no matter the sort of rig you’ve got, you’ll get to have a minimum of Windows 10’s November 2019 update (1909) installed, alongside a minimum of 110GB of free space for storing on your computer.
We also got confirmation today that the PC version of Forza Horizon 5 will support unlocked framerates, raytracing, 4K resolution, HDR, and 21:9 ultrawide displays. Additionally, Playground revealed supported peripherals from Logitech, Thrustmaster, and Fanatec. Have a glance at them below:
Logitech: drive , G25, G27, G29, G920, G923PS, G923XB, Momo
Thrustmaster: Ferrari 458, T150 RS, T300 RS, T500 RS, TMX, T-GT, TS-XW, TX, TS-PC
Fanatec: V1, V2, V2.5, CSL, CSL DD, DD1, DD2, Universal HUB device
All in all, it seems like Forza Horizon 5 will be a beast of a game on PC, especially if that ideal specification is anything to travel on. Forza Horizon 5 is out on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC on November 5th.
