    Turn 10 Motorsports has officially unveiled many new cars for its upcoming Forza Motorsport 6, including the full field of Formula E's Season 2 competitors.

  2. What a good idea !
     
    • Agree Agree x 1
  3. That's great news, I was at the London Finale and thoroughly enjoyed it. Shame they won't have the tracks from the series as well... now that would have been very cool :thumbsup:
     
  4. Forza has a history of choosing interesting cars - but also packing them into expensive DLC!!

    The last Forza I spent time with - 4 - didn't even have the heart to do a 'complete edition' - wrapping-up all the DLC into one game (3 did this) - and acquiring all of it's content would run you a lot of cash!!

    Did Forza 5/Will Forza 6 fix the 'joke' offline racing too? In 4 you could race any circuit with any car but you had no choice over what your opposition was (often very random weird selections were made) and every race was 3 laps - like it or lumpit - that was poor form.

  5. 450 is still quite a small amount compared to Gran Turismo. I mean I don't understand why recent games haven't had the extensive car list of older games like Gran Turismo
     
    • Haha Haha x 1
  6. Well as a person who has never played forza and a massive gt fan gt6 has some really unnescasary cars (daihatsu midget) for a racing game
     
  7. Gran Turismo is packed-to-the-gills with shitty cars you'd never want to drive tho - and that's before we get into it's awful AI and generally dated gameplay

    Forza has always thrown in some nice leftfield choices and made it's cars handle in more interesting ways - it's AI can drive too (GT's just runs around crashing into everything - it's woeful)

    Considering Forza4 pre-dates GT6 by quite a way, it's clearly the more advanced game. It's just their nasty attitude to customers with nickel-and-dime DLC and the requirement for XBL which deters me from playing more of it tbh - wheras I couldn't face 10 more mins with GT6

    Not to mention the 50 or so Mazda MX-5 variants :p

    (Mazda MX-5 itself is cool though)
     
  9. Wait, doesn't rFactor2 already have this mod? They just shrunk them and named them Formula R/C. lol

    Yes, I watch the series, I'm a die hard race fan - doesn't matter how they look or sound, I'm a glutten.

    Looks like Forza 6 is trying or is going to give us everything Project Cars can't deliver. :redface:
