News Weekly Racing Video Game News: Ambitious but Rubbish

Posted on

In this week's Weekly Racing Video Game news round-up, Forza Motorsport 5 gets back in the limelight with the new Top Gear DLC pack containing cars you've already driven in Forza Motorsport 4 and Forza Horizon. But wait, this time there's actually an all-new-car to the series in the form of the Chaparral 2E. Hooray! Meanwhile, Turn10 have been busy tinkering under the bonnet, resulting in "fundamental improvements" to Forza's in-game economy

Elsewhere, we got a glimpse of what next-generation bike racing will look like thanks to the first in-game screenshots of MotoGP'14 showcasing the Spanish Jerez glory with updated lighting and trackside detail. 

As is tradition each week, we attempt to answer the big question: when will we be playing DriveClub? Well, unfortunately we're still in limbo land, but DriveClub's Creative Director shedded some light as to why he left Evolution Studios to clarify the situation. 

In other news, rFactor 2 goes karting and Slightly Mad Studio's free-to-play World of Speed apparently won't be asking you to dip into your wallet every five minutes.

All this and more can be found in the latest Weekly Racing Video Game News round-up we've got embedded for you below. As always, links to all articles discussed in the video can be found below.
