Can You Replay the Beginning of Forza Horizon 5? Absolutely – Here‘s How

As a passionate Forza fan and content creator, I‘m constantly asked if players can relive the thrilling opening hours of Forza Horizon 5. The answer is a resounding yes! Whether you want to replay the intro sequence, reattempt events, or completely reset progress, this guide covers all the options to replay Forza Horizon 5 right from the beginning.

Relaunching the Iconic Forza Horizon 5 Intro Sequence

That unforgettable first drive through vibrant Mexican landscapes – can you experience it again? Fortunately, yes. Simply disconnect your internet when first launching the game. Without syncing data, it will initiate the intro as if first boot.

According to expert Forza forums, this forces the game to revert to a local offline profile with no progress saved. Once finished, reconnect online to retrieve your actual save file. It‘s that easy to rewatch the famously scenic opening sequence!

I‘d rank it as one of the all-time great gaming intros. As a content creator, I‘ve replayed the sequence several times to capture exciting footage for video projects.

Completely Resetting Progress to Start Forza Horizon 5 Over

Of course, you may want more than just rewatching the intro video – perhaps fully restart the map exploration, story events and progression systems.

Well, by deleting your Forza Horizon 5 saved data, you can completely erase your overall progress and effectively begin the whole game again:

  1. Launch Forza Horizon 5
  2. Access the Xbox Settings Menu
  3. Navigate to System > Storage
  4. Select the Forza Horizon 5 storage
  5. Choose Delete Saved Data

Once confirmation appears, your saved data is wiped. When next launching the game, you‘ll initializes the start of the experience as a brand new player!

Based on HowLongToBeat, focussing only on main story content, Forza Horizon 5 averages around 20 hours. But completionists aiming for 100% can spend up to 108 hours across all races, challenges and collectibles!

So resetting back to 0% gives you huge potential game time ahead.

Can You Replay Key Story Campaign Content?

Rather than deleting all progress, perhaps you just want to reexperience memorable story events like Showcases or key Expeditions? Well here‘s a data table summarizing replay options for core campaign activities:

Campaign ContentReplay CapabilityHow to Reload
Opening RaceBy resetting dataDelete saved game data
Intro SequenceToggle offline modeDisconnect internet on launch
Story MissionsYesMap filter > Showcases & Expeditions
Showcase EventsYesFast travel to start points
Horizon ExpeditionsYesFast travel to start points

The table shows that the majority of story content can in fact be replayed by fast travelling to particular start points. This lets you replay story missions without losing overall progress.

From community discussion, the most replayed Showcase is apparently the iconic plane race! No surprise given its thrill factor.

So whether you found certain story events too easy on lower difficulties, or just miss key characters like temperamental Fernando, you can play them again thanks to the replay system!

My Top Tips For Revisiting Forza Horizon 5 Early Game Content

As an avid gamer and content creator focused on the Forza series, I love rediscovering old enjoyment by replaying opening hours. Here are my top tips for fellow enthusiasts wanting to recapture the rush!

Change Difficulty Settings

Increase drivatar difficulty above your original settings – it makes events way more exciting (and challenging) the second time!

Try Different Vehicles

Choose an entirely different car class or model to change up the gameplay dynamics. I switch from fast hypercars to slow classic Buggies which drastically alters the replay experience.

Focus On Missed Collectibles

Use your minimap more actively to hunt down bonus boards or other collectibles you probably ignored your first run. Finding them all takes serious completionist dedication!

Switch Camera Perspectives

Swap exterior chase cameras for intense in-car views combined with manual transmission to amplify engagement.

Appreciate The Artistry

I often replay just to admire the stunning Mexican environments or intricately detailed cars. Forza Horizon 5 is automotive art in motion!

In Summary – Reliving Early Game Greatness

Hopefully this post clearly outlines the various options at your disposal for revisiting, replaying and resetting those magical first few hours cruising Mexico‘s landscapes.

Whether you just want to rewatch the musical intro video, challenge yourself against top Drivatars, discover missed secrets, or simply drive a fresh new car – Forza Horizon 5 offers plenty of replayability right from the vibrant beginning.

Now get out there and rediscover the rush of those opening roads! Just don‘t forget to constantly shout "I‘m winning Esteban!" at the screen.
