Playground Games announces first 165 vehicles for the game.

If it has an engine or motor and four wheels, there's a good chance it's in the game.

A virtual lap in a Ford GT race car could land you prizes from Michelin, Xbox, the Petersen Museum, and Ford.

We might not be world class endurance racers, but that doesn't mean we can't pretend to be.

NASCAR comes to Forza Motorsport 6.

Top gamers can rejoice as Formula E may pay for UK trip

'Virtual' Formula E electric-vehicle racing circuit series will kick off March 24 and will end up in London.

The new Alpinestars Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 6 lets drivers experience an eclectic mix of vehicles, including last year's Daytona 24 winner, a Subaru SVX, and a Pontiac Aztek.

Fallout 4 and Forza Motorsport 6 are teaming up to bring players two cars inspired by the upcoming, post-apocalyptic video game. They're starting with a rusted 1956 Ford F100, but the next one is much more fanciful.

Xbox announced backwards compatibility for Xbox One. We're dusting off all of our favorite 360 driving games.

Digging the new Ford GT? So is Microsoft, and it's putting the latest American supercar on the cover of its upcoming release of Forza Motorsport 6.

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.

In September Milestone, the developer behind the MotoGP videogame, announced an offering that would "alter the concept of motorcycle video games forever" called Ride, slated for release in Spring 2015 on Xbox One and 360, PlayStation 3 and 4, Steam and PC. Thanks to a press release we have a few more details on what's being billed "a complete motorcycle racing simulator" and "incredibly deep racing experience" featuring more than 100 bikes and every kind of circuit.

Why, you might be asking yourself, is Autoblog showing me an eBay Motors listing for a 2006 Ford F-250 and a box trailer (with a badly cropped photo to boot)? It's not because we're highly interested in this blue-collar rig, to be sure, but rather because we're interested in throwing the greatest Forza party of all time.

It's normal for parents to get frustrated with their kids sometimes. Moms and dads have high hopes for the success of their brood, and when the youngsters let them down, it hurts. That's not an excuse to be destructive, though. Especially not to the point of destroying a Mitsubishi Montero Sport with an Xbox 360 like in this video.

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.

Racing video games helps son connect with his dead father

Video games are often derided as low culture or violent wastes of time. One YouTube user, however, found solace in an old racing game by evoking the memory of his long-lost father.

Batman is getting yet another new Batmobile. We recently saw teases of director Zack Snyder's take on the iconic vehicle for the upcoming movie starring the Dark Knight and Superman. The movie isn't due to hit screens until 2016, so until then, we'll have to focus on the video game world as the Bat gets a new car to appear in Batman: Arkham Knight.

If you haven't taken the plunge into next-generation console racing yet, we can't recommend it highly enough. We were all but totally smitten when we got our first chance to play and review Forza Motorsport 5 this past fall, and still see the title as the crown jewel of the current lineup of Xbox One games. (Though admittedly we're biased about, you know, car games.)

The reviews for Forza Motorsport 5 have been just as keen as the few grudges held against it, those gripes chiefly being the paucity of cars and tracks compared to FM4 and the difficulty of purchasing the elite cars. Developer Turn 10 has heard the lamentations, and after making quick, temporary adjustments earlier this month has announced a coming update to address them.

If you couldn't tell by now, Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios are counting on the upcoming Forza Motorsport 5 to be a massive hit when it debuts for the new Xbox One console on November 22. In addition to the normal sort of promotion that goes along with the launch of a major title and an all-new gaming console (that is to say, a whole lot), the Xbox One marketing gurus are going above and beyond by producing a number of Forza 5 mini documentaries, like this one starring the McLaren P1.

Some say that the red ring of death is what he calls his belly button, and that in a past life, he was the dog from Duck Hunt. All we know is, he's not The Stig, but he is the Stig's digital cousin, and for the first time ever, you'll be able to race him.

Andrew Freeman is proof that video games will take you places. That's not really news, we suppose, considering the success of Nissan and the GT Academy, which takes talented gamers and turns them into full-blooded racecar drivers. Freeman's case is a bit different, though, as it was more deduction than a blistering lap that got him a seat in a McLaren P1.
