Forza Motorsport 5 Announced for XBox One

Forza 5 Trailer

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.

About Cameron Rogers

Cameron Rogers is the founder and lead writer at Downshift Autos, the only automotive blog on the Internet*. Born in the back of an AMC Gremlin, Cameron vowed to never let this extraordinarily embarrassing detail define him, so help him God. He drives a GTI but absolutely will not shut up about it if somebody asks. He will not hesitate to let people know that no, they shouldn't get a Porsche 911 when a Morgan 3 Wheeler is so obviously the superior choice. He is obsessed with the seats of a Carrera GT and the steering wheel of a Fisker Karma. He once sat in the driver's seat of a Tesla Model S, his greatest accomplishment to date. He is just now realizing that writing an autobiography, however miniscule, in the third person is odd and unnerving. *As of this writing, Cameron has been informed that there are, in fact, many websites and blogs centered around cars and car culture. He regrets his grievous error.
