Turn 10 have unveiled the car list for the upcoming Porsche Expansion Pack, pledging to reveal two cars everyday in the run-up to the launch date on May 22nd.
In total, 30 prestigious Porsches will be available chronicling the history of the manufacturer, some of which will be entirely new to the Forza franchise, along with 20 new Porsche-centric career events and 10 new achievements worth 250 MS Points.
The Porsche pack will be something of a milestone for Forza Motorsport 4, as Turn 10 were previously forbidden to include Porsches due to a licensing agreement with EA, despite their collaboration in Forza Motorsport 3. It's been an especially sore subject for Turn 10 - "this kills me," Director Dan Greenawalt yearned in a previous blog post.
Here are the cars that have been revealed so far - we will continually update this page as more are revealed:
If MS hadn't blocked Ferrari for the Shift Unleashed, none of these licencing issues would have occured. As it stands, one will be paying for the majority of Porsches available in FM3 which I think is poor value.
Am I the only person who wants MORE racing 911's?
Seriously, I would love to see the 911 GT3 R
The screenshots look like photos, never underestimate the power of realistic looking trees. Assetto Corsa can we have these now please? 2D trees are so last year. Seriously though, this looks (graphically) a lot better than WRC 5 and given Milestone's background in racing games the physics are more likely to be decent. Haven't really see what Kylotonn can do though so I'm keeping an open...
I still play SBK2000 and SBK2001 regularly. Physics is pretty good but imo not quite as realistic as gp500. There are two camps on that argument dating all the way back to 2001! I agree SBK2001 is pretty good but the more you grow accustomed to the physics of motogp14 on the limit with no riding aids whatsoever and zero or low tcs plus a decent set-up the more one realises that motogp14 is...
Reason I misunderstood you Travis is that Dorna have already confirmed to Milestone that they are retaining the motogp licence for 2015. Milestone have already started work on motogp15. In fact they have been working on this for quite some time now as I understand it. Also we at xbla are provisionally lined up to commernce a beta testing programme on the game. We have been running monthly Q&A...
Here's a recent example (one of many) in which Milestone have listened to us and have acknowledged that improvements are needed in motogp14:
Questions and Suggestions to Milestone S.r.l. from the XboxLiveAddicts U.K. Motogp14 Community
Now that it appears you will be retaining the Dorna licence for 2015 can you please address what is arguably the...
By the way, and I don't really endorse this concept myself (I would rather Milestone dropped it) the whole idea to combat the understeer in motogp14 is to use a manula "tuck" button. Hey presto..no understeer. Use the "tuck" as you come off the brakes and get on the power.
Personally I would much rather Milestone dropped the manual tuck requirement though. There is no manual "tuck" in...
