Forza Horizon 5’s PC Requirements
During the press conference, Playground Games emphasized Horizon 5’s scale and graphical fidelity, along with ray-tracing capabilities. These features truly bring the game to the next generation with style. But, with all these upgrades can your PC handle it? For most PC gamers, the answer is, Yes! A Microsoft store listing confirms all players need is an Intel Core i3-41710 or Intel Core i5 750 and 2 GB of VRAM. For a game of this caliber, you are looking at quite a deal here. The listing continues with a memory requirement of just 8 GB which is low. Given there is also an Xbox Series X version of the game, its great that Playground has managed to compress the PC version to decently low requirements. Note, these are the minimum requirements. Recommended have yet to be posted.
