Forza Horizon 4 was an outstanding racing game but with poor engine sounds, according to the community that cares about the sound effects complained that the sound for Forza Horizon 4 was far away from reality. Though the developers at Playground Games heard them and to top that, Forza Horizon 5 brings out 320 new car audio recordings. Along with that, the audio is going to be ray traced (RTX audio) while running at 90fps, where every change or upgrade you apply to your engine will be heard out loud in real-time.
The RTX audio sounds like a game changer here, that means the vehicle sounds will dynamically change according to the surrounding environment. Traffic sounds will also be different depending on the location you’re in for e.g. a town, underpass or a plain, all of these would sound drastically different.
Playground Games also came with granular hybrid looping, that was already a part of Forza Horizon 4 for around 15% of vehicles, but with the Forza Horizon 5 granular hybrid looping will be applied to all the vehicles available. This particular tech draws the best of the audio files according to the user’s driving style and environment from the “thousands of little audio files” and does that while being at stable 90fps.
