Turn 10 Studios' creative director Dan Greenawalt has confirmed that Forza Motorsport 5 will feature downloadable content that'll be mandatory to experience the racing game in its entirety.
Speaking to IGN.com, Greenawalt revealed that more emphasis would be placed on DLC in the upcoming Forza game, especially when compared with previous entries in the franchise:
He went on to say in the interview that these additions to Forza Motorsport 5 would be released on Day One without any additional charge, though they will be "required content to play the game", due to the team at Turn 10 having "designed the game to work with all that content no matter how late is coming in, in order to make the biggest game possible.”
"When you first boot up the game, we’re going to ask you to log in,” he explained. “And when you log in you’re going to get the Drivatars and you’re also going to get a whole bunch of content: tracks and cars.
