Its E3 season! It's only day 1 and this year's E3 is already set to blow minds in the gaming world. We headed up to LA today the Xbox media briefing and to see what the folks over at XBOX had in store for their Forza franchise.
While the folks at Xbox spent the majority of the media day announcing some major news regarding their mega blockbuster gaming titles. We honed our sights on the Forza franchise and their new releases. During the media briefing Xbox unveiled the first screenplay of the all-new “Forza Horizon 2” highlighting its massive, wide-open world featuring dramatic weather and day-to-night cycles, all in beautiful 1080p resolution on Xbox One. On top of that, users now have the ability to start their own online car-crew / club with up to 1000 cars worldwide. We have a feeling the name “Rising Suns” is going to get taken very quickly.
"Forza 5" players also got a freebie from XBOX this morning. Xbox and Turn 10 Studios just released a free update to all users that includes the world famous Nürburgring track. Now you can see if you can beat that elusive 7:00 mark all from the comfort of your living room. As soon as the conference ended, we had to get our hands on the games and test them for ourselves.
There’s just something so satisfying about drifting on the Nürburgring with no marshals or other drivers to kick you off.
We can’t wait to see what’s next for the Forza franchise and Turn 10 studios. Stay tuned for more updates from E3 this week.
