Tear up the raceway in 'Forza 5'

When the McLaren P1 rose up on stage, viewers immediately sat up and took notice. Whatever this game was, it had a gorgeous car sitting on stage for it. When the trailer opened and Forza 5 came rolling on screen,  fans started cheering immediately. The car’s beauty was matched by the brand new graphics engine that Forza 5 was sporting.

One thing Turn10 knew how to do is arrive in style. That McLaren P1 is one of only two in the world. It’s safe to say that McLaren and Turn 10 are pretty tight.

A new addition to Forza is the "Driveatar" feature. Weird name but the purpose is impressive. Driveatar eliminates the need for AI driving. Data is synced over the cloud and will be used to compete against other drivers, learning how they game, even while your console is off. This allows the game to grow and adapt to make the experience for realistic over scripted AI's.
