Forza Motorsport 5 has been confirmed as a launch title for the Xbox One console. The news was part of the Xbox One reveal event, which featured a short trailer of the game. Here’s what we know from that glimpse.
- Forza Motorsport 5 will be available as a launch title. No date has been revealed. Or prices of either the console of the game.
- The trailer featured a street racing circuit. It didn’t look like Rally di Positano from Forza Motorsport 4, but did feature the same cobbled street surface.
- Two supercars were featured.
- Some race commentary was featured in the trailer, which may just be to add excitement to the video. Hopefully it’s not recorded in-game commentary. If there is a commentary feature, we can only hope it’s part of an ability to commentate on live streamed racing.
Other non-racing news included the fact that Xbox 360 currently runs on around 15,000 servers, but the Xbox One platform is scheduled to have 300,000 servers available – there’s no indication of how many of these will be dedicated to gaming rather than the endless parade of TV and sports tie-ins which were being publicised.
Obviously there’s likely to be much more news on the actual games over the coming weeks, particularly during and after the E3 event, so we’ll keep you posted.
