Playground Games have shared the full map of Forza Horizon 5, which is 50 per cent bigger than the Forza Horizon 4 map. Check out how these maps compare in our side by side comparison.

During the last night's Forza Horizon 5 Let's Go! dev live stream, Playground Games showcased new Forza Horizon 5 gameplay, some vehicle customisation and the full map. As expected, the map took the spotlight since players have been waiting to see it for quite a while.

And it's safe to say that the map looks absolutely huge and showing a great deal of variety, just like we got to see in the previous episode of Forza Horizon 5 Let's Go! which focused on the biomes.

Anyway, the map is 50 per cent larger than the map in Forza Horizon 4, Playground confirmed, and we've made a simple comparison which should give you a closer look at the differences between the two maps. 

As you can see, there's quite a difference between the two. The map in Forza Horizon 5 offers almost everything that can be found in Forza Horizon 4's map but on a much grander scale. Just look at the big straights in the middle of the maps and the drift zones as well as offroad race tracks in red.

One of the biggest differences between the two games is in the seasons mechanic. Forza Horizon 5 won't see drastic changes when seasons switch like  Forza Horizon 4 did but still, it will have its own unique way of presenting seasons.

For example, Playground confirmed that there are some river beds that flood in the Autumn season, which will affect gameplay. This may not be the same as covering the whole map in snow like Forza Horizon 4 did but we don't have any doubts it's still going to look and feel great.
