A few big pieces of Forza Motorsport 5 news have hit the interwebs – because we know the guys at Turn 10 Studios couldn't stay quiet after Polyphony's Gran Turismo 6/Ayrton Senna deal that was recently announced. The biggest bit of info is a limited edition package, called the Paddock Edition.

According to Polygon, the Paddock Edition is limited to 3,000 units, and won't come cheap, at $120 a pop. That deal is made more difficult to swallow by the fact that it won't even include a copy of the game. What it will offer Forza's most hardcore fans is an FM hoodie, a stainless-steel water bottle, valve stem caps, a key chain and a set of supposedly bomb-proof Spy Optics sunglasses. If you want a game to go with your swag, the Limited Edition version, which offers extra cars and such, can be tacked on for an extra $80.

Besides the Forza-branded tchotchkes, Turn 10 announced another 22 cars for FM5, including fan-favorites like the 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe, 1984 Ferrari 288 GTO, 1961 Jaguar E-Type S1, 2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 and 2012 Hennessey Venom. You can hop over to the Forza Motorsports 5 blog for a full list of new additions to the game.

And finally, just because it's the weekend and we aren't doing any work anyway, Joystiq came up with three-minute video of in-game footage, featuring a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta lapping the legendary, and already announced, Spa-Francorchamps Grand Prix circuit. Take a look below for the video. Forza Motorsport 5 will arrive alongside the XBox One on November 22, 2013.

      I have forza 4 and it's just hard to get over how expensive new cars are. I mean $200 for the full package of cars and the game. You have to really want this and be a forza freak.

      Oh boy, a bunch of cars that were in FM4. This doesn't show anything new. Seriously, there's maybe 7 or 8 new cars that they've shown, and the game releases in a few weeks. Spa is great, but Spa is also in Gran Turismo 6, and I don't have to buy a whole new system to play it. I've been a Forza fan since day one, but they really screwed up with this game. They've shown only a handful of new cars, a couple new tracks, and they've talked more about their cloud-based nonsense than about actual things that racing sim fans care about. Basically what I'm saying is that there isn't enough that's new in FM5 to make me want to spend, not only $60 on the game, but also $400 on a new system to play it. Now, they might reveal a whole batch of new cars/tracks/features in the coming days, and I'll have to eat my words, but if they keep going at their current rate, I think I'll be a GT fan from here on out.

      Game looks great but it is missing something. Something about Gran Turismo makes the cars actually look and feel heavy when playing, but this game still looks like a video game. Still wish it was available for PS3!

        I sort of agree with your comment until I get to in game dust ups. The crash physics have always baffled me for such an excellent title. Never liked the way my "heavy" car could slide, hit the barrier lift up and rotate mid air a couple times, then do a pirouette depending on how the throttle is applied. Either way both are excellent games, just not sure I will be buying an XOne just yet or PS4 for that matter

        Is this a joke of some kind $120 & you don't get the GAME. I am right there with you this is just sad trying to make a $100 off of people.

      I love Forza.. big fan of the franchise.. but the lighting still gives the game an artificial look. GT5, and 6 for that matter, get the win in that category again. too bad.

          GT6 will be out on PS4 next year and even on PS3 it will be the better game.

          which is exactly my point... GT6 will have much better lighting effects on a last gen console.

        The only thing you're going to be getting at launch is NFS: Rivals as Driveclub was delayed to Spring 2014.

      How do they get the model of the car wrong in the article? Makes me wonder how much they pay attention. To anything in that matter...
