News Weekly Racing Video Game News: Forza familiarity

Posted on

In this week's Weekly Racing Video Game News, Forza Motorsport 5 gets its monthly ration of fresh car DLC – and surprise surprise, we've seen most of it before in Forza Motorsport 4 yet again. While we understand Turn10's desire to rebuilt some of the series' most fabled cars with the added detail the next-gen hardware can afford, some more variance is sorely needed. 

In other news, Need for Speed has retired from the race this year, as Ghost Games decide to spend an extra year finetuning the next Need for Speed due for release next year in a bid to shape the future of the long-running series, which is now in its twentith year. 

Elsewhere, DriveClub came under fire once again as the free-to-play Plus Edition has an unexpected catch which has since been resolved, and Fanatec launch a new range of extortionately-priced peripherals that you'd have to have more money than sense to consider buying. 

All this and more can be found in the latest Weekly Racing Video Game News round-up embedded below. Links to all articles discussed in the video can also be found below.
