Forza Motorsport 5 Announced for XBox One
At Microsoft’s press event for the reveal of the next generation Xbox, dubbed Xbox One, the company also showed a trailer for the next installment of the Forza Motorsport franchise. While Forza Horizon was a more casual racer set in a fictionalized Colorado, Forza 5 brings the series back to its track-based roots. A McLaren F1 and its hypercar successor, the P1, are shown duking it out on a street course in the trailer. The race is narrated, hinting toward a possible new commentary feature that would be a pretty cool exclusive for the racing simulator. The game will be available on launch day, whenever that is. Microsoft is expected to unveil the release date and pricing info at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
Unfortunately, the trailer is only at 720p for the time being. Hopefully a full HD version will be uploaded soon.
