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
A great classic car, lovingly reproduced and with sublime handling that brings the expected challenge. There are still some aspects I have issues with but either way I'll have a lot of fun driving it and with more video content on the way.
Theres apparently a way to unlock it to 60fps if you change a value in the files and it doesn't break the game like it did with Rivals. Although I don't know how Ubisoft would feel about people doing so, it could result in a ban so I guess its best to put up with 30 fps.
Yes it will be locked at 30fps on all formats, its a shame the PC version has been restricted in this way (much like NFS Rivals) but either way the open world will get good fun to explore. You can expect a stack of videos nearer launch.
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.
