The third major post-launch DLC pack for Forza Motorsport 5 - the 'The Smoking Tire Car Pack - has been announced by Microsoft Studios, ahead of its release next week on February 4th.
Named after the popular web-based automotive video series, the The Smoking Tire Car pack will end up adding ten cars to the Xbox One's system-seller racing game, ranging from tyre-shredding compacts like the Abarth Punto Supersport and Chevrolet Nova SS, right up to the track-inspired Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale and Maserati MC12.
The pack will be priced at £6,99 when it's released this coming Tuesday on the Xbox Games Store (those who bought the Forza Motorsport 5 Car Pass will have immediate access to the bundle's 10 cars on February 4th). Whilst it's possible to buy individual cars in The Smoking Tire Car Pack, those who purchase the entire set will have the aforementioned Alfa 33 Stradale automatically gifted to their in-game garage.
Speaking of the entire DLC bundle, below's a full run-down of all the cars available in Forza Motorsport 5's car pack for February:
Those tyres on the Lotus are really not suited to the extremely wet track, lol.
Surely SMS can kit it out with some wet weather rubber?
I'll look forward to it and for once I'm not bothered wether its DLC or not because in terms of racing sims, Assetto Corsa is definitely more friendly on your pocket - free multiplayer etc. I hope that doesn't change when it leaves early access.
Its nice to see that they're not using lens flare, it really annoys me when its used in cockpit view because cockpit view is often for a more realistic driving experience yet it can be ruined by lens flare which is an effect only present on lenses (unsurprisingly). *ehem* Next Car Game *ehem*.
Yes this certainly has huge potential and mixing bikes with cars could be a good thing in terms of investment. Bike games have often been a mixed bag in terms of reception, so perhaps we'll see some bikes in GT7 and then if that works out, a full blown Tourist Trophy 2 further down the line.
I'm not going to get my hopes up because there have been too many rumors for far to long. But after GT6 the only thing that would make me buy another GT title would be the addition of bikes (and a good selection of those at that).
In regards to Tourist Trophy, that game still holds up today. Not perfect (bikes a tad to floatly) but over all it gave me the closest sense of how it feels to...
