Forza Horizon 5’s first trailer was just unveiled at Xbox and Bethesda’s showcase, and it must be said that the game looks absolutely incredible. Forza Horizon 5 has clearly made full use of the new and improved capabilities of the Xbox Series X and S, with ray-tracing being a major graphics feature being confirmed for the two consoles. The game will also be coming out on Xbox One, and there is every chance that it is the last ever Forza Horizon title for that console, marking the end of an incredible era.
In this article, we will be talking about the availability of crossplay and cross-save on Forza Horizon 5’s three platforms. These two features may not seem like much, but they can go a very long way in enhancing your gameplay experience. Crossplay means that you would be able to play Forza Horizon 5 with your friends who own the game on a different platform! Cross-save is a more single-player-oriented feature and lets you carry over save files from one platform to another and thus play the game simultaneously on two different devices!
In a recent Xbox forums post, the question was answered, and Forza Horizon 5 will indeed support cross-play and cross-save across Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows 10 PC, and Xbox Cloud Gaming. However, only cross-play, and not cross-save, is supported for the Steam version of the game.
This is absolutely brilliant news of all Forza Horizon 5, since it does not matter anymore if your friend is a PC gamer and you are a console gamer, you can still play Forza Horizon 5 with them! Also, you can use multiple devices to play through the game, just not with the Steam version of the game. It should not come as too much of a blow to Steam sales, but we will have to wait and watch how it affects the market.
