Forza Motorsport 5 Reveals New Tracks

By Andrew Ogley, 3 years ago
Long time fans of the Forza Motorsport franchise will be happy to learn that upcoming Xbox One exclusive, Forza Motorsport 5, will introduce a new course that has been much requested by the community.

During an interview with Xbox UK, creative director Dan Greenawalt initially spoke of the new physics engine and how it has enabled more advanced aerodynamics, suspension, and tire models which could only be done using the power of the new console. However, later in the interview, Greenawalt went on to describe how a long time fan-requested track had finally made into the game.

Nestled in the Ardennes countryside of Belgium, Spa-Francorchamps is a 4.3-mile Spa track that is home to legendary corners like “La Source” and “Eau Rouge”. Greenawalt went on to explain how the physics engine would accurately reflect how modern cars with sufficient downforce would be able to take the infamous section without the driver lifting off from the accelerator, whilst cars of a certain age might want to consider taking it a little slower.



Along with the video, Turn 10 Studios has also released some new images of one of the recently announced cover cars, the Audi R18 and just for the sake of nostalgia, a new image of the classic Mercedes 300 SL.
