Forza 5 to feature Spa Francorchamps Circuit, Recreated at 1080p and 60fps

GC - "Microsoft has announced that Forza 5 will feature the Spa Francorchamps circuit and have revealed some new details on that." (Forza Motorsport 5, Xbox One)

It was already released on GT5 a few months back (maybe even a year now, i know i've had the track for a while), and such a good track too.

Yeah, one of the few tracks still used by the FIA that has some character. Speaking of which, Formula One arrives at Spa this coming weekend.

Edit: It might help if the picture being used was actually from Spa and not Laguna Seca.

I love Turn10's attention to racing physics details:

“Thanks to the power of the Xbox One and our Calspan partnership, we are implementing truly cutting edge scientific understanding of tire physics, suspension geometry, and aerodynamics – we’re not implementing the recommendations of last year’s text books, we’re running the tests that will write the vehicle dynamics text books of the next several years.”

One month break in F1! It's the first full season that I followed, and this has been a horrible wait. Anyway...

These articles did a similar thing with a Forza article showing the taillights of a BMW from GT5. It happened at least two times on N4G, and those people suck for ding that.

GT finally gets Silverstone and Fm, Spa. Cool.

Yeah, already have 1080p 60fps Spa Francorchamps in GT5 on PS3. Hopefully Turn 10 manage to put out a real next gen racing game when they make Forza 6.

That's a little unnecessary jimbo.

Can't we be pleased that this track is being added to the game for all those that will enjoy it?

1080p, Lol no. If I recall correctly then GT5 is 1280x1080. Just be happy that Next-gen games will finally be full 1080p.

@ Lukas_Japonicus


Is that why it says "HDTV 480p/720p/1080p" on the back of my Forza 4 box?
theEx1Le  +   833d ago
Not how it works man, it just means its compatible with 1080p resolutions. Running Natively is totally different.
JunioRS101  +   833d ago
@ exile

Yeah you're probably right I was just speculating.

What does Red Dead Redemption run natively..?
JokesOnYou  +   833d ago

FamilyGuy  +   833d ago

theWB27  +   833d ago
