Forza Horizon 5 was only just announced this week during E3 2021. The presentation left out some key details like the game’s resolution, frame rate, and crossplay.
In a new FAQ, the developers added some details left out of the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase. For instance, the game runs at 4K resolution at 30 frames per second on Xbox Series X. If you’re playing on an Xbox Series X, the game runs at 1080p at 30fps. Both platforms have a Performance Mode that boosts the frame rate to 60fps.

In addition, the developers confirmed that the game supports crossplay for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. So you can play with friends no matter what platform they are on. Plus, you can bring save data from one platform to the other with cross-save support. So if you start on Xbox One, for instance, your data will follow you to Xbox Series X. And if you’re wondering, the game also supports Smart Delivery.
