Forza Motorsport 5 flaunts "exclusive" LaFerrari licencing in new celebratory trailer

Not contempt with having just one of the world's most high-profile supercars - the McLaren P1 - in the game, Microsoft has also confirmed it has currently exclusive rights to use the Macca's arch rival from Maranello in Forza Motorsport 5.

To help celebrate the oddly named LaFerrari's inclusion in the Xbox One launch game (bar having an entire DLC car pack named after the most advanced Ferrari road car to date), a new trailer has been released, featuring to-camera pieces from Microsoft Studios' Phil Spencer and Ferrari's design director Flavio Manzoni on the high-tech supercar's role in the equally technically impressive Forza game.

The trailer also briefly mentions a new partnership between Ferrari and the Forza Motorsport brand, hinting that there may be more Ferrari-related content in the pipelines for the current Forza game, and perhaps in any other titles in the franchise that are still in the development stage.

It's worth pointing out, though, that it doesn't appear the LaFerrari won't be exclusive to the Forza franchise, as was the case for a while with the Pagani Huayra in Need for Speed 2: Unleashed a few years ago - a disclaimer at the end of the trailer states the car is "exclusive for a limited time", which should please those who'd like to see the current Ferrari halo car in a racing game other than Forza Motorsport 5.

The following excerpt from your article isn't really right:-

As the La Ferrari isn't included in the launch game without forking out a further $49.99. Similar to the Lotus F1 car, which is only unlockable through purchase via in game credits or paid for tokens.

Apparently the beta is locked at 30 fps on PC. I really hope the full PC release is unlocked because 30 fps may be a deal breaker for me. Admittedly though some games are more playable than others at 30 fps, unfortunately didn't get into the beta so I don't know what it plays like.

Every car in AC is so unique and feels so natural that it's genuinely exciting when we see something new. I look forward to testing this and the eagle eyed will have spotted it racing round an as yet unreleased Spa.

Is 3 cars enough for a pack? Is £1 per car worth it? Hmm it feels like 5-6 would have made for a better selection, I hope to test these out next week.

Just a simply good bye fix then. Now the focus on GT7, lets hope we see that in late 2015, though 2016 still looks more likely.

Yes I'm sure we'll see wet weather tyres implemented on a later build, either way it looks stunning so far and I look forward to testing wet conditions more when they improve the frame rate for triple screens.
