Road to Release - Forza Motorsport 5

Posted on Thursday, November 14 @ 00:23:12 Eastern by GR_Staff



During Microsoft's Xbox One reveal event held on May 21, 2013, a few weeks before its public showing at E3 2013, Microsoft revealed a teaser trailer for Forza Motorsport 5. The paired teaser trailer highlighted a race between two McLarens - a metal-orange McLaren P1 against a silver McLaren F1 - driving under bridges, through city streets, and over the Czech countryside. All we knew was that it would be launch title for Xbox One, that the commentators would be British, and that we still love McLarens.



The next trailer on June 10, 2013 came at E3 and emphasized the HD graphics and power of the Xbox One with all in-game footage. While it featured the same track as the teaser trailer, this one showcased a six-player match with cloud-powered opponents and promised hundreds of liveries on international circuits. It also teased several internal shots of the car and a few quick glances at Forzavista.



That trailer came at the end of Forza Motorsport 5 presentation at E3, where Microsoft highlighted the history of Team McLaren and its extraordinary McLaren P1 by lifting it from the ground onto the stage to the crowd's oohs and aahs. Presenter Dan Greenawalt explained that while the polygon count and the material details were incredible advanced, especially on the high-def screens, the main improvement centered around the Drivatar.

It's an artificial intelligence representing you would act like a personal ghost that collects data on your driving personality, like when you draft, when you apply pressure, and when you pass. This will gradually transform the AI to play as you would, and while you're away from your console, the Driveatar will take your place in matches around the world and pass along credits that it earns straight to your purse when you next boot the game.

In an interview conducted by Xbox, Dan Greenawalt further revealed that Turn 10 Studios had been approached by Microsoft four years prior about what they would want in a next-generation console. They immediately knew they wanted a title that ran at 60fps at 1080p with photorealistic physics and cloud integration. Also, open-wheel cars... wahoo!



A few months later in late September, Turn 10 Studios finally released direct-feed footage for the first time, putting the 2012 Pagani Huayra on the newly revamped Bernese Alps circuit on the lofty pedestal it so rightfully deserves. The gorgeous snowy alps, the rev of the engine, and the lighting effects from the sun show without a shadow of the doubt the power of the Xbox One. Take a look below (notice the HUD elements!) and make sure you turn the resolution up to at least 720p. 



And just to emphasize the incredible framerate, take at this latest FilmSpeed commercial for ESPN that has received over 1.2 million hits (at the time of this writing), complete with amazing music, a McLaren, and ooo, goosebumps!
