Forza Motorsport 5 Latest Announcements

By Dread Reaver, 3 years ago
Turn 10 Studios have released three exciting new details about their upcoming driving-simulation Forza Motorsport 5, including information on the Career Mode, the first ever direct-feed video footage, and the return of the Silverstone Circuit.

Career Mode Overview
First up, let's check out how the Career Mode works in this instalment to the beloved franchise. There will be 8 leagues allowing the player to earn experience and credits, with each encompassing a particular car "genre". For example, one league might cover sports compacts, while another will highlight vintage cars.

In addition, the player has a lot of choice over how their career progresses; you won't be forced to start out with weak cars and slowly progress to the better cars over time in a standard linear fashion. The player will also be able to participate in any desired event as many times as they like, so long as they have the minimum vehicle requirements for that event.

The familiar voices from the Top Gear series make a return, with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May providing some introduction commentary before the racing actually begins.

The first ever direct-feed
Turn 10 Studios have showcased the first ever direct-feed video to show off the 2012 Pagani Huayra racing on the frosty heights of the Bernese Alps circuit. This circuit appeared in Forza Motorsport 4, but has been newly rendered in 1080p resolution and at 60 frames per second for Forza Motorsport 5, taking full advantage of the Xbox One's next-generation technology:
