As realistic as PlayGround Games and Xbox Game studios have made Forza Horizon 5, the reality remains that players are not physically inside a race car. This implies that the point of view or field of view (FOV) can be adjusted according to preference. Somehow, the developers of FH 5 have turned this into an advantage, as provision has been made for players to change the game FOV to whatever angle is best for them. All you need to do is use the settings in the pause menu. Let’s discuss Forza Horizon 5 change FOV feature, and how to go about it in detail.
Forza Horizon 5 provides some of the best camera angles for players. You can switch to view from the top which enables the player to view his car, opponents, and nearby environment or racecourse. There’s a personal favorite- the view from the driver’s seat. There are many of these you can choose from and we recommend you make the FOV decision while on the racecourse, as this allows you to choose the best view for each race event. The only issue here is if the player doesn’t know how to switch FOV modes. If you don’t know how to, we guarantee you will in a minute.
Forza Horizon 5 Change FOV
When you are about to start a race or just cruising, you can change FOV by following these steps:
- Visit the main menu
- Click on Settings
- Scroll to HUD and Camera view
- Open Camera view
- Move your left 360 button around till you get a view you find best suited for the race event.
If you want something faster, you can quickly change or switch FOV on your controller by clicking the RB button continuously till you get the angle that you are comfortable with. The available FOVs include; the driver seat, chase near, chase far, bumper view, cockpit view, and hood. The driver seat view allows the player to be closer to the windshield and see-through with the car dashboard just in front. The chase near view offers a third-person view of the player’s car. Chase far view on the other hand offers a third-person view too, but the camera is adjusted to make the car smaller on screen. The bumper view allows for a first-person view of the player’s car. The hood offers a first-person view too, with the camera placed on the hood of the player’s car.
All these are to ensure players can switch to any view that best suits their viewing needs. Share this info and tips with friends so they can improve their gameplay too. Have fun seeing everything from different angles.
