The launch of Forza Horizon 5 is less than a month away and we can't to give it a spin. For those that are looking to play the game for less cost though, will Horizon 5 be available on the Xbox Game Pass? We've got everything you need to know about Horizon 5 on Game Pass right here!

What is Xbox Game Pass?

Xbox Game Pass is Microsoft's subscription-based cloud gaming platform. It's available for both Xbox home consoles and PC. There's also an "Ultimate Game Pass" which includes same-day releases for Xbox studio games.

For what you get, it's an absolute bargain. Even the Ultimate Game Pass only costs £10.99 per month. When compared to the price of a new game (around £60 these days) it's a steal.

Will Horizon 5 be on Game Pass?

As Horizon 5 is a Microsoft exclusive and an Xbox Studio release, it will be on Game Pass from launch day. Honestly, it's worth getting Game Pass just for Horizon 5 if you don't have it already. Horizon 5 will cost upwards of £60 when it's released and the first month of Game Pass is only £1 in price.

Plus, there are a lot of games included for free in Game Pass as well, with more being added weekly. This includes upcoming Microsoft exclusives as well, such as the upcoming Forza Motorsport.

The only real downside to getting Horizon 5 via Game Pass is that you don't actually own the game. So, if you decide to cancel Game Pass, you'll lose all of the games that you downloaded from it. Plus, downloading the game rather than physically owning it would mean you miss out on the bonus content that comes with it.
