Forza Horizon 5 has Gone Gold

Monday, October 18, 2021

Forza fans, we’ve reached an important milestone on the road to Forza Horizon 5 – we’ve gone gold! That means the game is now off for pressing of retail discs and final setup for digital release. This is a moment that represents the incredible accomplishments of everyone who worked on the game and we’re celebrating by sharing the music you will enjoy while you drive through Forza Horizon 5’s Mexico.


Music has always set the stage of the Horizon Festival and this time, it’s no different. Pulse, Bass Arena, Block Party, XS, Hospital Records and Eterna – the latest evolution of Timeless FM, all come together for your listening pleasure at the festival that never ends, featuring authentic Mexican pop music combined with the latest feel-good tracks from across the world.



To bring our fans the most realistic adaptation of Mexico, we’ve partnered closely with local Spanish language artists from across Latin America and are thrilled to introduce their music to a global audience. Check out tracks from Centavrvs, Clubz and Diamante Eléctrico on Pulse; Bomba Estéreo and the Mexican Institute of Sound on Block Party; Angelica Garcia, El Shirota and Technicolor Fabrics on XS; and Miguel Pacheco, Rodolfo Ritter and the Mexico Festival Orchestra on Eterna.


We’ve also collaborated with artists such as Sotomayor, Urbandawn, Plague Vendor and Metrik to compose original songs for the game’s initial drive and Expeditions. As you will see, the result is the most diverse soundtrack in the history of the Horizon Festival.



We’re getting the party started by announcing the tracks for handful of radio stations – check back in the days ahead for the complete line-up which we will be debuting on our Forza Horizon socials. If you want to listen now, we’ve created Spotify playlists to get you started!
