Really can't wait for this game. This blurb is from OXM:


The world itself has been rendered in the same level of detail. The setting for the opening race, Prague, was chosen for the express purpose of showing off the new console’s graphical chops, and (in a first for the series) it’s based on 1:1 laser scanning of the road itself. The resulting wireframe data is accurate to within six millimeters, and paired with high-definition 360-degree video capture of the track — similar to Google Maps’ street view, only higher resolution — it enables Turn 10 to create a course so detailed you can inspect the moss in cracks between paving stones.

A new cinematic automotive journey begins for racing fans this November with the release of "Forza Motorsport 5," exclusively for Xbox One. Today, Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios are announcing the details for the special edition versions of "Forza Motorsport 5," including the Limited Edition and Day One Edition, both which are now available for pre-order from participating retailers.

"Forza Motorsport 5" Limited Edition

With multiple car packs, VIP membership privileges, and packed-in content, the "Forza Motorsport 5" Limited Edition is the ultimate package for "Forza Motorsport 5" fans. The "Forza Motorsport 5" Limited Edition features the all-new 2014 Audi RS 7 Sportback on the cover and includes the following digital content:

Limited Edition Car Pack– This five-car pack features new cars that are already destined for legendary status. Each car in the “Forza Motorsport 5” Limited Edition Car Pack will feature a Limited Edition livery and will be tuned to the top of its respective class. The cars in the “Forza Motorsport 5” Limited Edition Car Pack include*:



2011 Audi RS 3 Sportback – More than a mere grocery-getter, the RS 3 Sportback marries performance with practicality. The result is a 340-horsepower grin-generator that will paste your head to the back of the seat and not crack a single egg in the process.
2012 Aston Martin Vanquish – As comfortable on the track as it is on cozy country lanes, the Aston Martin Vanquish is equal parts refined style and snarling, road-taming grit.
2013 Ford M Shelby Mustang GT500 – While the GT500’s aggressive lines suggest raw power and straight-line speed to spare, the sound of that big 5.8-liter V8 simply screams, “Get out of the way!”
2013 McLaren P1™ – The successor to McLaren’s legendary F1, the McLaren P1™ is an automotive highlight reel: technological innovation, gorgeous contours, and pure, unapologetic performance. Epic, legendary, astounding – words tend to fail when describing this car’s limitless potential.
2013 SRT Viper GTS – The return of the Viper has been celebrated by automotive fans worldwide. With an 8.4-liter V10 that’s capable of pushing the GTS to a top speed north of 200 mph, the 2013 Viper GTS has once again firmly entrenched its spot near the top of the American Muscle hierarchy.


VIP Membership – "Forza Motorsport 5" VIPs enjoy exclusive benefits, including 2x player reward acceleration, access to exclusive multiplayer events, an exclusive in-game player card badge, and in-game gifts from the "Forza" community team.** VIPs will also have access to the "Forza Motorsport 5" VIP Car Pack, featuring five amazing cars only available to VIP members, including:




1965 Shelby Cobra 427 S/C — Marketed as “the fastest streetcar in the world,” the 427 S/C is the most desirable of all the Shelby Cobra variants. Out of the 100 that were planned only 53 were built. They are nothing less than a purpose-built race car converted at the last minute for street use.
1987 RUF CTR Yellowbird — Dubbed the “Yellowbird” by journalists during a test drive event, the 1987 RUF CTR Yellowbird earns its name thanks to the canary-like chirping of its twin turbo blow-off valve. Just 29 of these cherished classics were built.
1991 Mazda #55 787B – One of the most beloved race cars of all time, the 787B holds the distinction as being Japan’s only winner of a 24 Hours of Le Mans race. Featuring a brash green and orange livery and an unmistakable screaming Wankel rotary engine, the 787B continues to inspire more than 20 years after its debut.
2011 Ford F150 SVT Raptor — Say hello to your rear view mirror's worst nightmare. The Raptor is essentially a factory-built pre-runner race truck with suspension to match its under-the-hood muscle. Slide it, jump it, whatever you like — it just begs for more.
2011 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport – Even among hypercars, the Veyron Super Sport stands alone. After all, this is the car that currently holds the Guinness record for “World’s Fastest Car” at speeds approaching 270 mph.

Day One Car Pack – A three-car pack featuring special liveries and custom tuned cars. See below for details on the Day One Car Pack.

In addition, "Forza Motorsport 5" Limited Edition owners will receive a custom Steelbook™ case, a decal sheet featuring “Forza Motorsport 5”, “Xbox One”, and Audi window decals, and 1,250 car tokens (a $9.99 value) that will allow Limited Edition owners instant access to any car in the game. The "Forza Motorsport 5" Limited Edition will be available for an estimated retail price of $79.99 at launch and is now available for pre-order at participating retailers.

"Forza Motorsport 5" Day One Edition

"Forza Motorsport 5" fans will also have the option to pre-order the "Forza Motorsport 5" Day One Edition, featuring the Day One Car Pack and special Day One commemorative packaging with artwork that matches the Xbox One Day One console design.

Day One Car Pack – This three-car pack features amazing cars from Lamborghini, Audi, and Ford; each with a Day One-themed livery and custom tuning package created by the experts at Turn 10. The Day One Car Pack includes the following cars*:




2010 Audi TT RS Coupe – Stuffed stem to stern with modern tech, the TT RS is the first TT model to carry Audi’s famed RS badge – a distinction that’s earned on the track from the moment you step on the gas.
2013 Ford Focus ST -- Debuting with the same 247-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine from the much larger Ford Explorer SUV, the new Ford Focus ST packs a serious punch
2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera – Like great sculpture, the Superleggera’s chiseled form is carefully considered for maximum impact. That’s where the similarities end, however, because this work of art is best appreciated when it’s moving at top speed.


The Day One edition of "Forza Motorsport 5" will be available for an estimated retail price $59.99 at launch and is now available for pre-order at participating retailers.

"Forza Motorsport 5" will be playable at this year’s Gamescom conference in Cologne, Germany. Conference attendees will be able to play an updated build of the game, as well as check out the “Forza Motorsport 5 Limited Edition” cover car – the Audi RS 7 Sportback – on display in the Xbox booth throughout the week.

* The cars featured in the Limited Edition Car Pack and the Day One Edition Car Pack of "Forza Motorsport 5" have been customized with unique Xbox One liveries and feature custom tunes designed by the developers at Turn 10 to improve performance above their stock counterparts. The stock versions of these cars will also be available on disc in "Forza Motorsport 5."

“I was blown away,” says Mark Skaife, regarding the apparently incredible accuracy of Turn 10’s laser-scanned ode to the spiritual home of Australian motorsport. “It was funny because we were standing in the pit area and Mattias had been on a simulator; Red Bull Racing have got a pretty good simulator.”
“So he’d been on the simulator and he started to talk to me about the lap. We only got four corners in and I had to go do something else as a PR thing. So the next time we started to talk about the track I was going through those first four corners with Mattias playing [Forza 5], and it was unbelievable.
“Turn 1, the amount of camber that was on the road; how much kerb you use. What side of the straight you drive up on Mountain Straight. What the bumps are like on turn 2 at Griffin’s Bend; what the road profile change is coming out of turn 2. How steep it is up to The Cutting, how much camber on the road there is at The Cutting.
“How close to the fence and the rise as you come up the hill again to Reid Park. The plateau at the top of the hill; the grate at Reid Park. It blew me away. The level of detail is unbelievable.

Picked this up yesterday. Anyone have to play ping pong with the drivatars to get anywhere?

Yeah, some of them are pretty bad.

Just got this last week on a whim. Was never really big into racing games other than the odd NFS game. After a week of playing this....I am blown away. Tons of cars to choose from, love the different classes and circuits you can race on.....and it's challenging(at least to me) getting used to the physics of the cars and how they handle.

The other reason we picked this up as it has a split screen option.....my wife and I needed something else to play together. I've yet to try the online portion and totally sure I'll get blown away but for now, I'm really enjoying my first taste of Forza.

Sounds good......Is it wrong to use the braking assist? I've been using it and totally makes it less frustrating for me. I may up the challenge and start braking around turns on my own......I guess I just really like super easy mode......funny I did not get NFS as it is more of an arcade racer, and here I am playing forza using assists and such to make it more arcade-y. I am going to have to start getting into more simulator based play to see how I really stack up against the AI racers.....again on super easy mode.

Very fun racing game though and am still enjoying it.

Whatever makes it fun for you. Start on easy and begin removing assists one at a time.

Hate to say but I use it. If I don't I go sailing through the turn.

I keeping on the Forza forums how better it would for your times not to use any assists. I feel my times are good with the braking assist.

As said whatever makes it fun for you

That's what I tend to do. But all in all with the variety and different classes of cars, I've had a lot of fun thus far.

Did not know about the cars. Thanks. Now to practice with less braking assists. Love the game but definitely harder as a simulator as opposed to arcade racing. Totally loving it though,so much I'm most likely going to get Horizon 2 when it comes out.

Same here Johnny. Have Horizon 2 on a wishlist. Of all the driving games I have played Forza has been the one I enjoyed the most. Not great at it but enjoy it.

You guys will love Horizon. I put more hours in the first one than any other racer. It's the realism and attention to detail of Forza in an open world racing game. There is a ton of stuff to do.

I do have Forza 3 and Forza Horizon on the 360. Always used the controller for steering and braking. And as for Forza 5 same thing. Use a controller.

I read on other forums about a steering wheel for the X1. I checked it and was $399.00. Would like to get a steering wheel but this is out of my range.

I have a wheel for the 360 and love it,still trying to get the controller down on forza 5 and they have a wheel for around 129 but it has no force feedback. I'm hoping the wheels with force feedback will come down in price but I'm not holding my breath.

Same here. I never really got into racing games but am loving my first foray into the Forza world. I'm also pretty bad at it and use the braking assists to dumb it down, but with a lot of practice, I'm sure things will get better. I do like the fact that you can really customize the game to cater to various different skill levels. Also some of the paint/decal designs I've seen are pretty sweet as well...the ones I've made are pretty simple and basic...but for those that take their time and are meticulous about it....wow.
