OXCGN’s Forza 5 Preview- Beyond your wildest dreams

OXCGN

"When a studio has been together for so long, refining a game genre, it’s only a matter of time before they hit their stride and create what is the pinnacle of what they have been doing over the last decade.

Forza 5 coupled with Xbox One‘s Cloud technology and an array of other features is simply majestic to witness." (Forza Motorsport 5, Xbox One)

This really does look amazing. Love Prague!
gaminoz  +   759d ago
Drivatars should be reallyl interesting, and thankfully the tracks look interesting too as well as the cars.
jimbobwahey  +   759d ago
They've actually had drivatars since the first Forza game, that learn to drive based on how you drive. I'm not sure why Turn 10 are suddenly claiming it's a brand new feature with Forza 5, but if you played any other Forza game then you've already experienced what drivatars are like.
PFFT  +   759d ago
They have never said its a brand new feature. Watch their E3 interview. The guy clearly states that the Drivatar feature has been in previous Froza games.
JokesOnYou  +   759d ago
Yeah of course the physics and gameplay driving features will be rock solid but I have to admit that Forza5 has those eye candy visuals that really draws me in, its definitely going to be one of my day 1 X1 games that use to show off to my bro's.

Got this baby pre ordered. With the new XBL Xbox One smart match feature playing online will be a blast and no laggggg. No shenanigans with the shenanigans filter.

Can't wait to see the game with more of its simulation and background processing enabled/added. Also can't wait to see the polished visuals closer to launch.

Be interesting to see what they do with spectator modes, if they improve them and how will the DVR and Twitch features work. Can't wait to hear this bad boy with the Xbox One's S.H.A.P.E (Scalable Hardware Audio Processing Engine) http://www.develop-online.n...

EDIT

And Please MSFT and Turn10 I wan't to be able to stream live music from XBOX MUSIC service in-game using my playlists or channels.

Been really getting into Xbox Music on my Surface... its a great service. Apart from how slow it is, and a disturbing lack of 90s era hip-hop.

Hopefully they let you use it for free on Xbox, too. Don't see why not after an XBL subscription. Of course, there will always be a premium service.
starchild  +   759d ago
Don't worry.. hip hop sucks anyway.
malokevi  +   759d ago
@Strarchild

Typical. Would expect that on N4g.

Me: "I like hip-hop"
you: "hip-hop sucks"

me:"I'm excited about Xbox One"
you:"Xbox One sucks"

me:"I want world peace"
you:"world peace is stupid"

I would never say your preference's suck. Even if you liked Little Wayne, The Backstreet Boys, Christina Agulara and Ronie James Dio. Everyone has a preference.

My parents taught me something when I was too young to form a coherent sentence... something I have always taken to heart. It goes like this:

"If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."

There are some people around here who could really use some basic parenting.

Its a simple matter of being enthusiastic about the things you love, rather than the opposite.

Would love to see Spotify get an app on Xbox soon.
CRAIG667  +   759d ago
Agree, spotify would be perfect on the xbox and playstation for that matter...
aviator189  +   759d ago
I'm especially excited for forza 5. Driveatars seem like a really cool concept.
RenegadeRocks  +   759d ago
You can try out drivatars right now your ipad . Get Real Racing 3.
malokevi  +   759d ago
Haven't played much since Forza 3... but this just looks too good to pass up.
Auron  +   759d ago
does that website even work?
theWB27  +   759d ago
took awhile to load..but it eventually did. But if you've read one preview then there isn't much new in this one. Did mention over 50 hours of career content plus rivals and top gear events
peowpeow  +   759d ago
If I pick up an Xbone, this might be the top reason
PFFT  +   759d ago
There are more reasons. Like me the reason ill be picking up a PS4 at a later date will be to play Killzone, Second son and whatever else Sony will be showing at Gamescon.
peowpeow  +   759d ago
There can only be one 'top' reason
Rowdius_Maximus  +   759d ago
I'd rather have driveclub ^_^
The_Infected  +   759d ago
Seriously lets be honest here Driveclub doesn't look as good as Forza 5 in any way possible.
HammadTheBeast  +   759d ago
At least not in what was shown at E3 (35% complete).
The_Infected  +   759d ago
^^^

Both games are releasing at the same time and if you think Driveclub at 35% complete will magically look better that Forza 5 which already looks far better is crazy.
Brugal  +   759d ago
I agree with Kratos Drive Club does not look as good as Forza 5 at this point. Who knows what the final product will look like, but right now Forza 5 indeed looks swell.
greenpowerz  +   759d ago
That was some masterful damage control spin. Well played. As if FZ5 graphics will get worse and Drive club gets better LOL. Drive club devs right now are struggling to get the game at 60fps, they also need to fix the physics first as the game plays like a 6th generation arcade game. I will be surprised if Drive Club comes close to any aspect of Forza 5.

IMO the design of the box has a lot to do with the differences as well(XBOX ONE optimization and hardware design are influenced by this game and its devs)
http://www.x360magazine.com...

Smooth spin nonetheless, there is a reason Forza 5's visuals have stunned and shocked the industry.

Stunned and shocked the industry? They did? Which industry is that?
horndog  +   759d ago
No one cares about diveclub fanboy. Why are you even here if you already decided your not getting it. Idiot!
Nexgensensation  +   759d ago
in my opinion(short and simple)
forza is becoming the better arcade/simulator racer! it almost does everything that the Gt series does with alot more creative approach.

hundreds of cars! check
upgrading and tuning! check
damage flips and turns! check
custimizations! check

the only thing the gt series has over forza is that each individual car has its own stat for which each car drive differently to a car with simular stats
TomOfAllTrades  +   753d ago
Lol the dislikes you get for having an opinion O_o
I forget that certain 'Fan_Boys' don't encourage others opinions..
CPTN MITCHELL  +   759d ago
Gt6
WeAreLegion  +   759d ago
Don't come on here just to troll with that. I may agree with you, but seriously dude...
WeAreLegion  +   759d ago
What?!? Seriously? How do I get disagrees on that one?

If you guys are going to be like that, then screw Forza 5. There's a reason GT outsells Forza by a massive margin.
The_Infected  +   759d ago
^^^

Maybe because you called him a troll and said you agreeded with him at the same sentence? Lol

@CPTN MITCHELL

Gt6 seriously? /s
WeAreLegion  +   759d ago
That's the problem though. I agree that GT6 will, most likely, be the better game. I just think it's ridiculous that he came on here just to post that.
TomOfAllTrades  +   753d ago
How the hell is he trolling? Lol
He put GT6, if you can't handle his opinion then you clearly need help..
WeAreLegion  +   752d ago
Because that's obviously trolling. Why would you go into a Halo article and type KZ:SF? To troll. There is no other purpose for something like that.

The only thing that is stopping me from getting Forza 5 is will I be able to use my G27 racing wheel? The 360 did NOT support it, you had to buy an adapter.
No_Limit  +   759d ago
One thing that didn't get mentioned in this article is the # of materials that are being produced on-screen in FOrza 5.

http://www.oxm.co.uk/56724/...
This level of care and attention is possible, naturally, thanks to Xbox One's substantially superior RAM allowance. To put it all in hard numbers, Forza 4's cars were composed of between 54 and 60 unique materials. Those of Forza 5 are composed of around 1300, and Garcia insists that "we haven't hit the limit of what we can do".

Wow, sounds great! This is the game that I will play first on my One.
FrigidDARKNESS  +   759d ago
The game is amazing and look awesome with the cloud feature that takes it beyond gaming. Forza 5 is the king of racers that kicls off next generation gaming.
The game is going to look better at launch with the Direct 11.2 tech added.

Im not gonna knock on the game but LOL on some of the sales pitch comments inhere...
Overkill commenting, much
Supermax  +   759d ago
I think there fans of the game and its no different from people talking about killzone or knack or second son.
Thomper  +   759d ago
Really looking forward to this. I hope there will be a professional steering wheel available, at whatever cost. I want full force feedback, gear stick and pedals....
BootHammer  +   759d ago
Fantastic graphics and features...definitely a must have launch title ;)
