How to Turn off Artificial Horizon in Forza Horizon 5 Hot Wheels DLC

As explained by developers themselves, Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels features “our fastest, most extreme, gravity-defying tracks”. And because of that, they have used this opportunity to also introduce new accessibility features. This includes the ability to turn off motion blur, FOV sliders, a stunt steering assist, and a roll indicator.

Probably the first new feature you will immediately notice is the roll indicator. Players also call it “Artificial Horizon” or “Gravity Indicator”. This HUD element is turned on by default when you start playing Hot Wheels. Since the tracks in Hot Wheels are so extreme and often act more like a rollercoaster rather than a racing track, you may sometime lose the sense of where’s up and where’s down.

That’s where the roll indicator jumps in, as it will always keep you informed about your position relative to the horizon. This will help you not to overestimate your position and accidentally overturn your car. Nonetheless, as we’ve already mentioned, some players find it distracting and want to remove it from their screens, especially because it is positioned directly above their cars. If you are one of these players, here’s how to turn off the roll indicator.

  • Head to the “Campaign” menu.
  • Open Settings.
  • Open the “Accessibility” tab.
  • Scroll all the way down.
  • At the very bottom, you’ll see the “Hot Wheels Roll Indicator” option.
  • Switch it to “Off”.
