Turn 10 recently released their laser-scanned version of the Nürburgring Nordschleife for Forza Motorsport 5, making the Xbox One title the first game to offer a laser-scanned version of the green hell.
Below is an interesting comparison, showing the 1967 Brabham Formula One car on the ring in both Forza Motorsport 5 as well as rFactor 2.
While the comparison is interesting to check out, it should be kept in mind that the rFactor 2 version is not just not-laser scanned but also an impressive one-man track modding project.
Turn 10 has released a new DLC content pack for Forza Motorsport 5 as the Top Gear pack is now available on Xbox Live.
The pack includes ten cars, consisting both of road & race cars as well as rather quirky additions like the 2011 Ford Transit SuperSportVan.
The majority of cars in this pack aren’t brand new additions to the Forza Motorsport franchise though as many of these cars have already been featured in Forza Motorsport 4 for the Xbox 360.

2013 Holden Commodore VF
2013 Audi RS4 Avant
1980 Renault 5 Turbo

The pack is now available on Xbox LIVE, selling for 10 Euros.
The Ferrari 312T from the 1975 has seen a rise in popularity thanks to the movie “Rush” as the car appears in more and more games.
With Friday’s Assetto Corsa update, the 312T is now available in a PC simulation as well, enough reason for FTRRacingTv to create a reality check video to see how AC’s version stacks up against F1 2013 and Forza Motorsport 5.

Darin Gangi of InsideSimRacing has published a very interesting video, hosting a face-off between the two console heavyweights Forza Motorsport & Gran Turismo.
In the video, Darin takes the SRT Viper for a spin at Bathurst, comparing 17 different aspects to find out which title does it better.
Granted, every Forza vs. Gran Turismo comparison is a bit off these days, considering how the titles run on different generations of hardware. Still, it is an interesting comparison well worth to be checked out!
Turn 10 has released Road America for Forza Motorsport 5.
The iconic American racing venue was among the tracks that didn’t make it from Forza Motorsport 4 to the Xbox One platform due to extensive reworking of the track that was needed to bring it up to next gen standards.
These works have been completed now as you can see in the preview video below, the track is a free addon for all Forza Motorsport 5 owners.

Gamespot has released two new gameplay videos of Turn 10′s upcoming Forza Motorsport 5 title.
The videos show the Lotus E21 Formula One car at Yas Marina Circuit as well as the Audi R18 at the Circuit de la Sarthe.
Forza Motorsport 5 is due to be released for Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox One on November 22. New features of the fifth installment of the Forza franchise include laser-scanned tracks, open wheel race cars and lots of new content.
Being a launch title for the new Xbox One, Forza Motorsport 5 will require an internet connection in order for players to complete the career mode as a substantial part of the game has to be downloaded off the internet first.
The title will come with 200 cars and 14 tracks, less content than Forza Motorsport 4 due to new quality standards set for the next-gen version.
