A lot of effort goes into making the modern racing game as realistic as possible. This video offers a behind-the-scenes experience of the playgrounds as they work on Forza Horizon 5, the next installment of the wildly popular Forza Horizon franchise. The focus is obviously on the sound, and as we can see it is much more difficult than gluing the microphone next to the exhaust pipe. Sounds are recorded under the hood, in the car, in the back of the car, next to the car, on the side of the road, and this is done at all engine speeds. Considering that Forza offers hundreds of vehicles, the effort is seriously impressive.
However, the best part of this video is the internal combustion music coming from many amazing cars. There is something for everyone here.
Of course, these are real sounds, but how will they be translated into Forza Horizon 5? To answer that question, Forza offers yet another video of digital previews of some real cars in a behind-the-scenes clip. Yes, it does take some signal processing to create a virtual car, but to be honest, it sounds good.
We saw a preview of Forza Horizon 5 and it looks fantastic. Based in Mexico, the new game promises everything from volcanoes to Mayan ruins and fantastic desert running. It arrives November 9th on Xbox and PC.
Recall that a little earlier information appeared that the updated pickup Toyota Tundra 2022 received an electric rear window.
