A Tasty Teaser Ahead Of The Main Course

New concepts, new racing conditions, and a very blue Ford supercar are the highlights of this sample of the sixth installment in the Forza Motorsports series.


Track List Finalized, Will Include Daytona, Brands Hatch, Watkins Glen

The official demo for Forza Motorsport 6 will hit Xbox One consoles on September 1 and include both night racing and wet-weather competition.


Formula E is coming to your Xbox One, as Turn 10 Studios has announced that the entire 2014/2015 grid will be offered in Forza Motorsport 6.


Slightly Mad Studios has announced the followup to the racing title Project CARS, promising more tracks, vehicles, and racing disciplines.


Ubisoft, makers of The Crew, have announced a major expansion to the open-world racer, adding monster trucks, motorcycles, and two other new vehicle classes.


The latest installment in the Forza Motorsport series is coming on September 15, and it'll arrive with night racing, dynamic weather, and at 1080p and 60 fps.


Although we doubt you've forgotten, the upcoming Mad Max game is so packed full of crazy, it should come with a warning label.


The teaser for the new Need for Speed game offers some brief glimpses of some of the cars. However, you need to look past a very shaky camera to see them.


Finally, A Challenger To Forza's Crown

With a single-minded focus on racing, Project CARS takes a simple idea and executes to a tee. It falls short of Forza in some ways, but not many.


Project Cars may finally be hitting store shelves, according to a new report. PC sales start May 6, while console on-sale dates are staggered across regions.


We go behind the virtual wheel of the star cars in Furious 7, ranging from Dom's Charger to Brian's Supra.


Also: US-Spec Car Said To Weigh Just 2,332 Pounds

The 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata will be offered as part of a free, four-vehicle car pack on March 17. Gamers will also have a chance to win an MX-5 in a new Rivals contest. What's more, we learn that the production MX-5 will supposedly weigh just 2,332 pounds in US-spec form.


Forza Horizon 2 is teaming with the folks behind Fast and Furious for a new, free, standalone expansion pack based on the multi-billion-dollar movie franchise.


The G-Shock car pack is ready for Forza Horizon 2, bringing with it a collection of six very eclectic models that run the gamut from concepts like the 2015 Nissan IDX Nismo to classics like the 1953 Ferrari 500 Mondial. The car pack even gets very quirky with the 1980 Subaru Brat GL. There's at least one car here to grab the interest of any fan of the game.


Beautiful, Vast And With Loads Of Unfulfilled Potential

Lofty promises and lovely trailers have become Ubisoft's modus operandi of late. Gaming enthusiasts as a whole have seen it in the company's other, non-auto-related franchises, while we've observed this tendency in the lead up to Ubi's latest title, The Crew.


GTA V features an "R18+" rating in Australia, the equivalent of a "Mature" rating in the US.


The Next Generation Is A Beautiful One

We've spilled a lot of virtual ink in our coverage of Grand Theft Auto V. Rockstar Games' 2013 blockbuster was arguably one of that year's very best titles, delivering a unique version of automotive mayhem, along with all the other things – guns, sex, drugs, murder, thievery and biting satire – that the series has been praised and criticized for.


Slicker, Prettier And More Addictive Than Ever

One of my early triumphs while playing the sparkling new Forza Horizon 2 for Xbox One came after what I could conservatively call a "non-traditional" motorsports experience. In a point-to-point street race across a lovingly rendered, sun-dappled corner of Europe, I transitioned from a winding two-lane road to a narrow dirt , with one extended foray – at well over 120 miles per hour – through a vineyard. I did all of this in a Ferrari 360 Modena Challenge Stradale.


It's easy to look at racing video games as just a time waster or a hobby. In reality, though, they're often powerful tools for aspiring racers to learn tracks, race craft and how to set up a car in an easily accessible, risk-free environment. We aren't just talking about proper computer-based sims, like iRacing. Console-based racers like Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo provide a test bed for racers of all sorts.


With its September 30 release date just over two months away, Turn 10 Studios has slowly started releasing the car list for Forza Horizon 2, the sequel to 2012's Forza Horizon.
