Wow! I love Forza, I know Turn 10 works darn hard on the games, but darn it at this point they should have night racing at the very least. There is no excuse not to have it now. I was all set to buy this day one, but I'll wait a bit to see if they implement it at a later date!
Very bitter sweet feeling right now about Forza 5.

words can not describe the utter fail that this is next gen with better and powerful hardware.

there should be no reason that this game doesnt have night racing, or a day/night cycle. the gaming media better rip them for this.

Yi-Long1232d ago

... AFTER the game is launched, as downloadable content you'll have to pay extra for.

I think the Forza games are absolutely fantastic, but I didn't bother picking up Forza 4 or Horizon because of Turn 10's DLC-milking.

Aceman181232d ago


You know that would not surprise me Lol. I would love to hear T10 excuse for them not having it in a next gen game.

Jakens1227d ago

If any game (besides Gears) milks DLC it's Forza.

BABY-JEDI1232d ago

I think it's purely all about getting the game out for launch. They obviously can do a lot more, but to miss the XBone launch would be a BIG disappointment for the fans.

Jakens1227d ago

I'm a fan and I want a finished game please.

Kalowest1232d ago

WTF... That's a deal breaker, I was really hyped for this game :(

izumo_lee1232d ago

Really? Seriously!? A game called Gran Turismo 3 made over 10 years ago had night racing & wet roads. How in this day & age with advanced tech that a game of Forza's caliber is unable to do things a 10 year old game did!

Fans of Forza should be upset cause racing in night & weather is part of the hazards of racing. It makes the experience that much more exciting.

because its easy to apply a night theme and slippery track. i hate it when people put it like that. "well a game 50 years ago had this crap why can't this one do it". because they can't just make the track look wet, they gotta make it feel wet too, which involves a whole lot of physics and probably days/weeks/months of testing on each type of car. also just making it night doesn't work like it did in your GT3, tho it's still relatively unadvanced. you gotta have different lighting effects which should be relatively easy to do.

So are you saying that they cannot do what Sony did in GT6? with a hardware of 2006 and 256mb of video memory?

I think that rain and/or night features wouldn't be possible in xbox one at 1080p and 60fps... that would explain this

"So are you saying that they cannot do what Sony did in GT6? with a hardware of 2006 and 256mb of video memory?"

YES, I completely agree with that argument. Why cant they do on 8x more powerful hardware when PD did.
But to compare to GT3 like the guy above said where rain would have no impact other than visual, or maybe the car would slide here and there. GT6 rain, I have no idea actually, but Im guessing will affect how the car/tires/traction and pretty much everything works. So yes, comparing to GT6 they have no reason not to do it. It sucks tho because I might still have to shell out 500$ just to play it. I love the Forza franchise and since theres no GT6/7 that I can play on PS4 soon after launch, and seeing how DriveClub is arcade/30fps, I might have to shell that money out so that I can fill up on my racing simulation with good visual needs.

The_Infected1232d ago

Well Driveclub it is. I liked Forza 5 from what I seen but after hearing this I am not interested anymore.

JohnS13131232d ago

Make sure you have PS Plus and you'll get Driveclub for free at launch.

iCanHazCheez1232d ago

Don't let that fool you, it will have less tracks and less cars, don't forget that people!!!

But €60 is worth it.

Jakens1227d ago

Driveclub will be everywhere.

aaron58291232d ago

hmmm..even need for speed rivals has weather.... oh t10... sigh...
