    Forza 5 - To include Driveatar which will learn how players race.

    Turn 10 Studios came on stage to discuss Forza 5 to talk about the cloud – and the end of AI. Talking about Drive-atar, instead of Avatar. Opponents don’t dive like AI, but real people. It will learn how you race. It will race for you in the cloud even when you are not playing. The studio went on to show a new trailer featuring all in-game footage. Here’s the list of game features:

    • Always racing, always adapting
    • Never race alone. By learning how you and your friends drive, the power of the cloud delivers real human behavior. Drivatar technology creates an ever-evolving network of opponents who are always ready to race. Real tendencies, real mistakes, real victories.
    • Rivals everywhere. Every corner a new challenge, every event a new chance to win. Compete against your friends’ top times in rotating challenges for in-game credits and bragging rights.
    • Fast and fair multiplayer. With Smart Match matchmaking and Xbox Live dedicated servers, experience epic, fast and competitive multiplayer perfectly suited to your skill and style.
    • Curated customization. The power of the cloud means the best custom content now finds you. With a system that learns your preferred cars and paint schemes, seamlessly experience the most compelling user-generated content available.
    • Your ever-growing garage. Your automotive journey continues long after launch.
    • Download, drive and explore the most anticipated new cars in the world, months before they hit the showrooms, then challenge your friends in continuously updated online race events.
    • Unprecedented visual realism. The definitive next-generation graphics engine delivers stunningly realistic visuals in 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second.
    • Leading simulation. Racing’s leading simulation engine, developed for Xbox One in
    conjunction with Calspan and the world’s top automotive manufacturers, makes driving easy to learn and rewarding to master.
    • Dynamic damage. High-resolution damage modeling shows every bump and scrape. Roads accumulate tire rubber and debris. Racing has consequences; damage can stop you in your tracks.
    • Astonishing detail. A new graphics engine created exclusively for Xbox One delivers physically based material rendering that re-creates the real-life characteristics of thousands of unique materials. Surfaces such as metal, glass, leather, rubber and concrete look real enough to touch.
    • Living busy worlds. Racing comes alive with fans crowding the walls, helicopters circling overhead and the vibrant hum and spectacle of race day. Your ultimate car fantasy
    • Forzavista. Truly feel what it’s like to own the world’s most exclusive cars in an experience that brings you closer than ever to the history, craftsmanship and potential of every car in the game.
    • Hundreds of next-generation cars. The most diverse lineup of vehicles ever seen in a “Forza Motorsport” game: from classic sports cars to modern tuners, purpose-built racers to extreme exotics and, for the first time in “Forza Motorsport,” open-wheel race cars.
    • Unique careers. Take your favorite cars through unique careers highlighting their greatest strengths, their most notorious rivals and their place in motorsport history.
    • Laser-scanned tracks. Drive the world’s most legendary race circuits and exotic road courses, captured with millimeter accuracy.
    • “Top Gear” exclusives. The world’s biggest automotive TV show teams up with the most innovative racing game yet. Take on Stig’s Digital Cousin in unique car challenges, turn a Power Lap on the Top Gear Test Track, and hear show hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May share their distinctive automotive insights throughout the game.

    Forza 5 - Xbox One tech explained by Turn 10.

    Forza 5 will be the sexiest racer ever. Dan Greenawalt explains to VG247′s Sam Clay where all of the tech wizardry comes from, and how Xbox One’s clout makes the racer gleam. VG247 caught up with Dan Greenawalt after his Xbox One E3 media briefing skit to discuss all of the latest details on the next-gen racer. Greenawalt was so excited by the upcoming title that he let out a cheeky swear just to show how enthralled he gets by cars.

    Forza Motorsport 5 - Requires day-one online connection for Drivatars.

    Forza Motorsport 5 will require a one-time internet connection to unlock courses, cars and Drivatar racing AI. Turn 10 Studios head Dan Greenawalt told IGN that in order to meet deadlines, the game disc will ship with a portion of courses and cars, with the remaining content available as a day-one download. Greenawalt explained:

    Comparing the process to restocking a refrigerator, Greenawalt advises logging in as often as possible to refresh the Drivatar AI. He continued:

    Greenawalt said that the team was trying to pack as much into the offline mode as possible, but believes that users will want to remain online to experience the revolutionary AI. The game's new Drivatar system is capable of learning the player's racing style and emulating their behaviour. It is even capable of competing in races for them while they are at school or work.

    Forza 5 - Day-one download not required to start playing.

    Turn 10's Dan Greenawalt has moved to clarify that Forza Motorsport 5 on Xbox One will be playable prior to downloading a previously-confirmed free day-one update. According to previous reports, which cited Greenawalt himself, Forza 5 owners would have been strictly required to download a significant data pack before being able to play the game at all. But in a revised statement, Greenawalt has told IGN:

    Clarifying that the game will be at least partially playable before the free content is downloaded, and that while its eventual installation is required to complete the game, the whole process can be done in the background as you play. He said:

    Greenawalt goes on to assert that if a player never connects to Xbox Live they won't be blocked from playing the game, but also won't be able to complete it. He added:

    A background download process will also be used to download player-created 'Drivatar' AI opponents. He explained:

    Forza 5 will be an Xbox One launch title when the console arrives in November.

    Forza 5 - Xbox Showcase Gameplay.

    Forza 5 is one of the biggest Xbox One exclusives, so it took centre stage at Microsoft’s showcase yesterday at Gamescom. We have exclusive gameplay footage of a complete race being absolutely destroyed. It’s so, so pretty.

    Forza Motorsport 5 - Day One Car Pack screenshots.

    Microsoft has released a set of Forza Motorsport 5 screenshots showing off the bonus cars available to customers who pre-order the Day One Edition of the Xbox One game. The three-car pack includes the 2010 Audi TT RS Coupe, the 2013 Ford Focus ST and the 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera, each of which will come with a Day One-themed livery and custom tuning package.
    • 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.

    Forza 5 - To feature Bathurst Mount Panorama track.

    Forza Motorsport 5 will feature Australia's most famous touring car circuit in the form of Bathurst's Mount Panorama. Mount Panorama joins Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Spa-Francorchamps and a fictional Prague track on the list of confirmed Forza 5 circuits.

    Forza 5 - Is unlike other launch titles, isn’t just a graphics showcase.

    Forza Motorsport 5 carries on the tradition of marketable console launch titles, but Turn10′s Dan Greenawalt reckons its much more than that, given its ambition and scope. Speaking with OXM, Greenawalt said:

    He added that simply because the game is marketable and poised to launch the Xbox One in November, it is by no means a rush-job day-one title or stop-gap until the truly impressive next-gen games appear. He added:

    Forza 5 - Promo straps camera to McLaren P1 for old-school animation.

    Microsoft’s marketing gurus strapped a camera to a McLaren P1 and drove it at high speed past oversized images of Forza 5 to make this flipbook style animation video. It’s a lot of effort to go to, but the result is kind of cool; check it out below.


    Forza Motorsport 5 is a launch title for Xbox One, which arrives in November.

    Forza Motorsport 5 - Direct Feed Gameplay The Bernese Alps.

    YouTube can't keep up here, but you can at least watch this direct footage from Forza Motorsport 5 to get some idea of what the Xbox One can do for racing games. Even after being butchered by compression and frame rate changes, you can see that this launch day (November 22) racer is going to look good. If you haven't seen it in person yet, you'll just have to take my word for it that this Alps course looks amazing in 1080p, running at 60fps.

    [/CENTER

    Speaking of courses, Microsoft and Turn 10 have confirmed that the Silverstone Circuit makes its return in Forza 5. They say they laser-scanned the course during development to provide the most accurate rendering.
