Q:Do I need an Xbox Live account to play?
A:Yes! You’ll be asked to sign into Xbox Live the first time you install and launch Forza Horizon 5 from the Steam client. Additionally, creating an Xbox Live account is free, and does not require an Xbox Live Gold subscription.
Q: If I already play Forza Horizon 5 on another platform, will my game progress or items carry over to Steam if I buy the Steam version?
A: Your save file which includes progress and in game items on Steam is completely unique and separate from any pre-existing save file that’s associated with your Xbox Live gamertag, due to technical limitations. This includes user generated content like liveries, layer groups, blue prints, etc... However, there are a few exceptions:
- Leaderboards are one per gamertag. May the best profile win.
- Clubs are one per gamertag. Join once, play anywhere.
- Share codes can be used anywhere.
- Backstage passes and Forzathon points are linked to the gamertag.
- Gift messages that have already been redeemed on another platform with your gamertag are not resent to the Steam version.
