Forza Motorsport 5 Direct-Feed Gameplay Footage


The first ever direct-feed gameplay footage has been released for the upcoming next-gen racing title, Forza Motorsport 5.

Turn 10 Studios provided the video which features the 2012 Pagani Huayra racing in the snowy elevations of the Bernese Alps circuit.

This circuit shown off in the trailer made its debut in the predecessor, Forza Motorsport 4 and has been completely rebuilt for next-gen with Forza Motorsport 5.  Inspired by the Swiss Alps, the Bernese Alps circuit features stunning elevation changes and a variety of sweeping and challenging corners and is a showcase for the new graphics engine that powers Forza Motorsport 5 on Xbox One. From the physically-based materials system that re-creates every surface precisely as it looks in real life to the vastly improved lighting engine that brings the stunning beauty of the track to life, the Bernese Alps in Forza Motorsport 5 is a masterful marriage of innovative technology and pulse-pounding beauty, all running at fantastic 1080p resolution and at 60 frames per second.

There have also been new details about Career Mode released, which is as follows:

Designed to spotlight the hundreds of drivable cars in “Forza Motorsport 5”, the all-new career mode is organised into eight leagues, with each league covering a special “genre” of car (such as supercars, vintage, sports compacts, and more). Each set of career events will feature a video introduction with commentary provided by the hosts of the UK version of the worldwide smash automotive entertainment show, Top Gear.

Unlike traditional racing game career modes – where players move from low-performance cars and are forcefully guided into more powerful cars over time – the career mode in “Forza Motorsport 5” gives players the power to choose their own paths through the career. Players will have the choice to participate in whichever career mode events they like, provided they own a car that meets an event’s requirements, and can return to those events as many times as they like, all the while earning credits and experience as they go.

The Silverstone Circuit also makes its way back into Forza Motorsport 5 and has been built from the ground up to feature the current track layout that has been in place since 2010. It comes in at 3.6 miles long and features an impressive 18 corners which range from high-speed sweepers such as Woodcote to intricate series like the Maggotts and Becketts corners. It will look life-like due to it being laser-scanned during development to provide the most accurate rendering of the circuit to be found in any racing game.
