One of our most long-requested features in Forza Motorsport is the inclusion of open-wheel race cars. In fact, back in 2011 Alan posed the qauestion to Turn 10's Dan Greenawalt about their whereabouts, which you can see towards the end of this video below:
It's safe to say, then, that we were elated to discover that open-wheel race cars will finally feature in Forza Motorsport 5 for the first time in the franchise.
Sadly, there were no screenshots or videos to whet our appetite. In fact, this significant development wasn't even mentioned during Forza's showing, and was instead tucked away in the official factsheet that details "the most diverse lineup of vehicles ever seen in a "Forza Motorsport" game: from classic sports cars to modern tuners, purpose-built racers to extreme exotics and, for the first time in "Forza Motorsport," open-wheel race cars."
Still, we can't contain our excitement over this development in Forza's ever-growing car collection that should bring the franchise closer to its potential of representing a rich variety of motorsport disciplines.
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...
