Forza Motorsport 5

Turn 10 Releases First Direct-Feed Gameplay Footage

The very first direct-feed gameplay footage of Forza Motorsport 5 was released today courtesy of developer Turn 10 studios. It’s an impressive demonstration of the Xbox One’s powerful new graphics engine, which renders the game at 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second.

The footage showcases the 2012 Pagani Huayra navigating the icy roads of the Bernese Alps circuit, which has been entirely rebuilt since its debut in Forza Motorsport 4. Also returning to the franchise is “the home of British Motor Racing”, the Silverstone circuit. The real Silverstone was laser-scanned during development, and its appearance in the Forza Motorsport 5 is the most accurate rendering of the circuit in any racing game to date.

The career mode for Forza Motorsport 5 is organized into eight leagues, each focusing on a particular type of car. For instance, a league might be specifically for vintage cars, another for sports cars, and so on. Players can choose from a number of career mode events, and can participate in one with a car that meets the event requirements. They can also go back and replay any of these events for credits and experience. Each set of events features its own video introduction with commentary provided by the hosts of the UK version of Top Gear.

Check out the new video, and screenshots below. If you haven’t already, be sure to look over the list of 21 new cars announced for the game.

  • So...beautiful. 0.0
  • Looks about the same as any other Forza game.
  • The bottom left picture of the sun above the snowy mountains and track almost looks real.
  • Just remember everyone. These are all launch games. Remember how bad launch Xbox 360 games looked. Just give it time for developers to harness the power of the new systems.
  • November can't come soon enough!

  • It looks pretty good but I wouldn't mind slowing down so we can get an actual look at the environmental detail in the trees and walls.

  • Forza Motorsport is possibly THE best racing simulator to date. For those of us unfortunate enough to actually experience being a real-life professional race driver have the next best thing.
  • They ported Forza 4 to the Xbox One...
    Really? Okay, Turn 10 is lazier than Valve now. At least Valve changed L4D1.5 a bit.
  • cockpit view please

  • I enjoy Forza & played the heck out of Forza Horizon, but what I really wanna see is a next gen NFS: Underground. Either that or Dirt 4 with the addition of dirt bikes and atv's...as long as Codemasters can duplicate what they did in Dirt 2! Racing felt more exciting in that installment. They'll both never happen so here's to dreaming! Oh, & Forza 5 is looking great :-). I almost forgot why I clicked on this article, lol!
  • Wow, this is going to be a very nice racing game to kick off next-gen.

  • dear lord! can't wait to see this on my 42" 1080p LG HD TV! ....dammit I might have to get another for the living room!

  • Forza 5 or Forza 4.5?

  • I'm digging the next gen evergreen tree technology. That's how I know we've made it!

  • I just want to know if they're bringing back Endurance Races. I couldn't believe those were left out of Forza 4.

  • Dat as....phalt!

  • Skybox, Skybox, Skybox!!!! SO PURDY!
