While the landscape is starting to hold its form for the upcoming Forza Motorsport – the definitive reboot of the series from Turn 10 Studios, Forza Horizon 5 is taking some spotlight to showcase its new EventLab 2.0 update. Recently, the in-game track editor welcomed a major overhaul to the feature. Originally welcomed in the previous Forza Horizon 4, the suite has been enhanced for the latest Mexico arcade racer.
“Since the launch of Forza Horizon 5, all of us here at Playground Games have been blown away by the stunning creativity and talent of the EventLab community. Your unique maps and game modes provide exciting new experiences for every player in Forza Horizon 5, and today we’re excited to double down on this with EventLab 2.0,” Playground Games Design Director of Forza Horizon Torben Ellert writes.
“Available now on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC on Windows and Steam, and Cloud Gaming (Beta), this free upgrade to Forza Horizon 5’s custom map editor is certain to get your creativity racing and inspire you to build the events you’ve always imagined. EventLab 2.0 introduces new quality-of-life improvements and asset creation tools to help players build their dream maps, races and game modes in Forza Horizon 5.”
The new update features a slew of enhancements to the original Forza Horizon 5 EventLab suite including the addition of multi-selection mode, prefabs, custom flyers, new props, and the addition of Event Island – a canvas for players to create new ideas and tracks to explore the limits present in Forza Horizon 5. Much of these additions appear to be notes that the Forza Horizon studio took from Halo Infinite’s Forge Mode, it appears.
