Forza Motorsport 5 Features Bathurst Track on Mount Panorama
Meanwhile, the Xbox One Racing Team prepares for battle.
Revealed via the Xbox Newswire, Turn 10 Studios revealed that Forza Motorsport 5 would receive the Bathurst track on Mount Panorama on the request of fans.
Creative director Dan Greenawalt stated that, “Few circuits have been requested more by the worldwide Forza fanbase than Bathurst, and for good reason. It holds a special place in motorsports history as one of the most demanding and challenging circuits in the world.
“In addition, the timing couldn’t be better to finally bring Bathurst to the Forza series; with ‘Forza Motorsport 5’, we’re able to bring the circuit to life in a way that nobody else can. Through the use of cutting-edge technology like laser-scanning and our new materials-based graphics engine, we can now precisely reproduce the characteristics of every corner, straight and detail to sub-centimeter accuracy; from the narrow twists and turns of the Esses, to the thrilling rollercoaster sprint down the Conrod Straight.”
It has also been revealed that the Xbox One Racing Team would be taking part 2013 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 with a 5 litre Holden VF Commodore featuring a V8 Holdren engine, with Andy Priaulx driving (check it out above). Forza Motorsport 5 will be launching alongside the Xbox One on November 22nd worldwide.
