Turn 10 Studios' creative director Dan Greenawalt has confirmed the Drag racing and Tag multiplayer modes will be headlining the imminent content update for Forza Motorsport 5.
Speaking to IGN, Greenawalt revealed that – along with the headline-grabbing revised economy model for the game announced a fortnight ago – the popular drag racing mode that's been a popular part of the core Forza Motorsport franchise for some time now will be added to the Xbox One exclusive racing game in the soon-to-be-released patch.
The creative director went on to announce the return of the Tag multiplayer modes to Forza Motorsport 5, detailing the three variants that players with access to the title's online servers will be able to experience:
- 'Keep the It' – Target is to be the 'It' player for the longest period of time in the session. One player starts the game as 'It', and – as 'It' status is transferred through contact – must avoid collisions with other players in order to remain so. Player with the longest 'It' time at the end of the countdown wins.
- 'Pass the It' – Like 'Keep the It', only in reverse. One player starts the match as 'It', and must pass the status on through bumping into other cars. Player with the least amount of 'It' time wins.
- 'Tag Virus' – Last man standing mode where one player starts with the 'virus', and infects others by colliding with them. Winner is the sole remaining car left uninfected.
No ETA release dates were mentioned, so we're still yet to know when this major update patch for Forza Motorsport 5 will be released. Given details about its contents are being discussed with the media, though, it's likely it isn't far off now, so we hope we'll have an official announcement to report on in the coming days and weeks.
