Forza Horizon 5 has been huge for Xbox

If you’ve been anywhere near social media over the last few days you’ve probably seen the buzz around Forza Horizon 5. Several players have been posting shots of the game and it is staggeringly beautiful – especially if you’re playing it on Xbox’s flagship Series X.
