Ever wanted to race the legendary Bathurst racetrack in a game, which actually will do it justice? Well, don’t fret; Bathurst is coming to Forza 5 and you will be able to race V8 Supercars around this track and we expect that online players will be hosting their own Bathurst 1000 races.
Dan Greenawalt, Creative Director at Turn 10 said, “Bathurst holds a special place in motorsports history as one of the most demanding and challenging circuits in the world. The timing couldn’t be better to finally bring Bathurst to the Forza series; with Forza Motorsport 5, we’re able to bring the circuit to life in a way that nobody else can.
“Through the use of cutting-edge technology like laser-scanning and our new materials-based graphics engine, we can now precisely reproduce the characteristics of every corner, straight and detail to sub-centimeter accuracy; from the narrow twists and turns of the Esses, to the thrilling rollercoaster sprint down the Conrod Straight. This is the Bathurst that racing fans have been asking for years and we’re proud to bring it to them in Forza Motorsport 5.”
In addition to the exciting announcement, and to help hype up the upcoming Xbox One console, Xbox Australia have teamed up with Triple Eight Race Engineering to eneter the Xbox One Racing Team in the 2013 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
Andy Priaulx and Mattias Ekstrom will be driving this special V8 Supercar, which is a VF Commodore underneath.
We were looking for a reason to order a Xbox One console, and now we’ve just found it! Are you excited to finally have our legendary track in Forza 5, up against the likes of Le Mans and the Nurburgring?
