Why Forza Motorsport 5 could be the best launch title for Xbox One?


Forza 5

Microsoft is set to release their new console in the coming weeks and they have a good lineup of games available at launch for the Xbox One.

There’s Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct and Ryse: Son of Rome that can provide gamers with a good variety of game play for them to choose from.

However there’s one more game that could be the best of the bunch with Forza Motorsport 5 looking spectacular.

The developer Turn 10 Studios has a good history of making quality racing games that people enjoy playing.

The one thing that stands out with the Forza series is how good the cars look and the attention to detail in the game.

They have made great improvements since the first game, but the one area that does need some fine-tuning has to do with the computer-controlled competitors on the track.

Forza 5 aims to fix this with Drivatar -  a type of learning AI system that governs every AI racer in the game.

The system is powered by the cloud and fueled by the habits and behaviors of Forza 5 players.

This is something Turn 10 Studios hopes will make racing in Forza 5 more dynamic, unpredictable and true to life.

Drivatar first appeared in the initial Forza game as a local learning system that gleaned information from race times and data on the console level in order to adapt AI behavior.

Now with the Xbox One’s cloud-computing potential, the feature can better achieve its intended vision.

In Forza 5 it will catalog data from players who are connected online and form a Drivatar profile, which can then go on and represent the player on other Xbox One consoles.

Here’s a trailer that shows how good the game looks, and remember the game will be running at 1080p and 60 frames per second.

Forza 5 looks gorgeous and it’s no surprise that Microsoft wanted this game to be a launch title for the Xbox One.

Let me know what you think of the game and if it could be the best launch title for the Xbox One.

If the previous trailer didn’t wet your appetite enough, this is the launch trailer for the game.
