While this isn't recommended, it has allowed eager players to jump in sooner than scheduled.
With the release looming, many will be wondering exactly what time the game will become available.
What Time Does Forza Horizon 5 Come Out?

As for Xbox Game Pass, the game will also become available at the same time. Subscribers will have day one access to Forza Horizon 5 at no additional cost.
Players in the US have been able to access the game early by exploiting a timezone difference. In New Zealand, the game was scheduled to release 00:01 NZDT on Nov. 9. This corresponds to 07:01 ET, Nov. 8, for the US. Using this method involves changing your console's location to New Zealand.
The process has been known to cause some issues, therefore, DBLTAP does not recommend that players utilize the exploit. Any changes should be done at the user's risk.
