With Forza Horizon 5 ready to release in less than a week, learning the controls (keybinds) before launch can set you ahead of the other opponents. Since the game relies on quick wits and reaction times, knowing all the controls of the game is an absolute necessity if you wish to win some races!

High-speed racing in Forza Horizon 5 doesn’t give players much reaction time to look down or think about which key to press. Your best bet for not crashing your ride amidst a head-to-head race is memorizing the control layout and knowing what to press.

  1. hi need to alter buttons on controller for shifting up and down and when I try it comes up with ‘key bindings missing’. Would like X to be upshift and A for down. Any help out there?
    Thanks in advance.

  2. hi i would like to know if there will be an option to use the keyboard in the xbox one, cause i hate to use the controller and my pc isn’t good enough to play the game on it.
