It has been a long wait for racing game fans, but the release of Forza Horizon 5 finally happened on November 9. To celebrate this momentous occasion and show just how much anticipation there is among gamers everywhere about this eagerly awaited title Microsoft teamed up with LG Electronics to host an innovative event.
LG brought the good OLED toys
For fans of car racing, the Forza Horizon 5 event was an exciting two-day journey. Taking place at Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey, England, on November 6th and 7th, 2021, it featured several challenges with new cars and environments from Mexico. ‘Drift Lab’ was the perfect place for those who wanted to take their driving skills up a notch. The challenging courses were explicitly designed for drift racers, making them experts in this area and can help you hone your virtual racing game. Prizes awaited those daring enough to push it all out there – not only will they win bragging rights but also some pretty awesome rewards like cars or other prizes.
The intense custom-built driving pod that is located on one of the Aerodrome’s runways, The ‘LG Dream Gaming Setup,’ brought all the excitement from Forza Horizon 5’s open-world racing to life in a real outdoor setting. Three large OLED screens surround drivers and deliver an immersive 4D experience as they race around those virtual worlds for themselves.
Using virtual reality systems is no longer necessary when you can enjoy a fully immersive experience with realistic sounds and smells in real-time. With the new LG OLED TV, we’ve taken immersion one step further by adding pre-recorded environmental effects such as rain or thunderstorms that will accompany every race. At the same time, our screen refreshes at 60Hz, so there’s zero lag time between commands from your controller. For those who just want to sit back, relax and watch their favorite show without having any responsibilities, VR experiences are also becoming increasingly popular. Still, nothing beats being able to interact personally.
The OLED “Dream Gaming Setup” for gamers to try out
Forza Horizon fans were given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in an exclusive event and play the highly anticipated game Forza Horizon 5 before release. The high-octane gathering showcased all of why LG OLED is such favor among serious gamers worldwide, with stunning picture quality that only gets better when you’re watching replays on Twitch or YouTube, fast response time making for fluid gameplay even during intense moments where things seem impossible; low input lag which means players won’t experience any delays reactions whatsoever.
In addition, at this year’s “Forzathon Birthday Bash,” Xbox One users had another chance at getting their hands on one last build ahead of launch day by competing against others. When you’re looking for a TV that can handle all of today’s top games, there are not many options better than LG OLED. With self-lit pixels and large screens to deliver infinite contrast with vivid colors on an impressive scale – this display will make any gamer happy.

Just buying the latest consoles or PC hardware is not enough. You always need a display that supports the latest visual features and innovation just as much. The displays from LG that offer OLED panels are a good example of that. Of course, there are more specs to enjoy, but OLED is one that is genuinely unique to products manufactured by LG – and a combination of front and side displays never anyone either. Why not? LG indeed had a lovely ‘Dream Gaming Setup’ going on here.
