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
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.
