Forza Motorsport added the 2013 SRT Viper to its extensive collection of cars as part of a free DLC back in June, but with the launch of the Viper GTS-R in ALMS this summer we knew it was only a matter of time before the racing snake would be included in the game. That time has come, as both the #91 #93 Viper GTS-R race cars headline Forza's September Car Pack.
Once upon a not so long ago, I owned a 1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III. If the cruiser from the B52's infamous "Love Shack" really was as big as a whale, the Conti was the ocean in which that mighty Chrysler swam. I held the title for roughly 13 years, and in that time, I got the car sideways exactly once.
It may have gotten lost in the noise coming out of E3, particularly the preview for Forza Horizon that was released by Turn 10 Studios, but your good old Forza Motorsport 4 game got some new DLC this past week in the form of the Meguiar's Car Pack.
We may have gotten used to it by now, but the bottom line is that the Bugatti Veyron is an astonishing feat of engineering. The task of summing it all up, then, would fall to one Jeremy Clarkson.
Anyone with an Xbox 360 and Forza Motorsport 4 will be able to get their hands on a virtual version of the all-new 2013 SRT Viper. As revealed at its New York Auto Show debut, the hotly anticipated American supercar is headed to the game as part of an exclusive Viper Pack.
In the Forza Motorsport 4 vs. Gran Turismo 5 debate, no one questions Forza's commitment to genuine engine noise. Normally, the Turn 10 sound engineers use Dyno Authority in a business and residential area of Seattle to record their cars' sounds, but when it came to the 1991 Mazda 787B that was unleashed in February's ALMS DLC, the Le Mans-winning racer was just too loud.
The ladies and gentlemen at Turn 10, the studio behind Forza Motorsport 4, take their cars just as seriously as their gaming. They're not the only gamers to invest heaps of time rendering metal into pixels, but you might be surprised just how much travel, how many microphones, how long on the dyno and what kinds of owners go into gathering the selection of rides.
If you've been enjoying Forza 4 on your Xbox 360 but have been clamoring for some new cars to try out, you'll want to mark February 7 on your calendar. That's when Microsoft is releasing the new American Le Mans Series pack, complete with ten new cars in digital, downloadable format.
Heads up, Forza fans; Turn 10 has just released the next downloadable content package for Forza 4. The November Speed Pack oozes lustworthy digital metal, including the 2012 Dodge Viper SRT8 and the Lamborghini Aventador. But the 10 new models aren't all supercars. We're particularly happy to see that the 2013 Ford Focus ST is part of the group and that players will finally get a chance to drive the 1992 GMC Typhoon as well. You can head over to the Forza Motorsport website for a full list of th
Polyphony Digital has something special planed if Sebastian Vettel manages to take the Formula One Driver's Championship for the second year in a row. Vettel made history by becoming the youngest driver to ever take the title last year, and if he pulls off a repeat performance, Polyphony says it will release the Red Bull X2010 in game to anyone who logs on to Gran Turismo 5. As anyone who's familiar with the franchise can tell you, the X2010 is ultimate prize in GT5, as vehicle is the award for
"What you are about to see is a fantasy. It has no place in the real world."
Gamers, Turn 10 Studios is about to have you say goodbye to your family and friends. Forza Motorsport 4 is nearly available for purchase, and the creative team has let slip a few goodies that will be included with the game. We've already heard about the involvement of Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson, and how the developers turn a real track into a virtual one. Today, however, we've learned that there's a whole lot more in store for us.
We're convinced that Forza Motorsport is out to take over the universe. With the racing simulator's only real competitor, Gran Turismo, sucking wind, the title is kicking in teeth and taking what it wants. An example, you ask? Not only will Forza 4 feature the M12 FAV Warthog from Halo, the combat vehicle will receive an introduction from none other than Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear fame. How's that for a few of your favorite worlds colliding? Word has it that the Warthog isn't the only vehicle t
Being a video game designer sounds like fun. And when the video game you're designing involves recreating famous racetracks from around the world, you're definitely having more fun than the average cubicle-dweller.
Forza 4 is set to hit stores on October 11th, and Turn 10 Studios wants you ordering the game before the leaves start to change color. A limited collector's edition has been announced, which is chock full of goodies, both virtual and real. For $79.99, Xboxers will receive a special tin that contains the game, a 96-page photo book titled Cars of Forza Motorsport 4 presented by Top Gear, vinyl stickers and a slew of downloadable content.
