Forza Horizon 5 may not be officially launching until this Tuesday with Xbox Game Pass, but over one million players appear to have already dived into the early access edition of the game with the Premium Edition bundle.

Following an immensely positive reception with its reviews, it seems players just can't wait until November 9th to drift into Forza Horizon 5. The Premium Edition (or add-on bundle for Xbox Game Pass players) is striking a chord with many users judging by these early numbers.

From our own experience, one challenge currently has 969,211 players listed as completing the speed trap. However, one Twitter user has come across a particular challenge which listed 1,023,752 users.

It's an impressive feat - especially considering Forza Horizon 4 managed two million players in its first week. With Forza Horizon 5's inclusion into Xbox Game Pass still to come, it's easy to imagine that past milestone trumped.

In our review we called Forza Horizon 5 an "amazing game", but one that perhaps feels a bit familiar to past instalments. With the official launch just hours away, it won't be long before everyone gets to try it with Xbox Game Pass.
