Microsoft Details The Xbox One’s Cloud Integration With Forza Motorsport 5
The cloud capabilities of the Xbox One explained.
Yesterday, Microsoft released some new specs detailing the cloud capabilities of the Xbox One along with Forza 5. Today Microsoft released some brand new details to go along with that video.
Check out some excerpts from the press release below:
• The cloud allows the team to move learning AI into the cloud and act more like big data – or, act less like AI and more like real people. This brings AI closer to how real players drive.
• The cloud enables a conversation between the “Forza” team and their community, which is at the heart of “Forza Motorsport 5.” Through the cloud, the “Forza” team can add new challenges, new achievements and let the community vote with their actions. So if drag racing is a hit with the community, for example, the team can add more challenges.
• The cloud helped the team totally revamp Drivatars, where the system looks at how you drive and your behavior, brings it up to the cloud, crunches numbers, builds a profile, and builds an Avatar that races for you around the world and against your friends and family.
It will be interesting to see where Microsoft takes gaming with the help of cloud in the next few years.
