Microsoft has announced that Forza 5 will feature the Spa Francorchamps circuit and have revealed some new details on that.
The addition of Spa-Francorchamps to “Forza Motorsport 5” will surely be music to Forza fans’ ears. Nestled in the Ardennes countryside of Belgium, the 4.3-mile Spa track is home to legendary corners like “La Source” and “Eau Rouge” and has been one of the most requested tracks from fans since the Forza series’ beginning.
The track is laser-scanned and recreated at 1080p and 60fps. Turn 10 will be releasing more details in the future but here’s what Dan Greenawalt had to say on why the game will be spectacular on the Xbox One.
“For Forza Motorsport 5, we have an incredibly powerful console at our disposal in the Xbox One,” Turn 10 boss Dan Greenawalt said. “To make the most of that power, we had to collect data on tire variables that have never been isolated – to refactor our understanding of tire technology through the lens of a much more powerful console; one that could handle the increasingly complex formulae of heat, slip and weight transfer that our increased understanding demands.
“Thanks to the power of the Xbox One and our Calspan partnership, we are implementing truly cutting edge scientific understanding of tire physics, suspension geometry, and aerodynamics – we’re not implementing the recommendations of last year’s text books, we’re running the tests that will write the vehicle dynamics text books of the next several years.”
