Forza 6

Microsoft’s regular car porn showcase is making a comeback in 2015. Rev up your engines, put the pedal to the metal and apply for sensible car insurance that covers you for any eventuality at a rather acceptable price every month. Because it’s time to race!

Announced at the North American International Auto Show, Forza Motorsport 6 will once again be developed by Turn 10, and is likely to release on the late side of 2015. Here’s the debut trailer:

In addition to the usual selection of page 3 cars, Forza Motorsport 6 has also inked a deal with Ford that will see their brand new cars that debuted at the same auto convention featured in the game; Cars such as the Shelby GT350 Mustang, the GT-40 and F-150 Raptor. If you haven’t seen it yet, the new GT-40 supercar is essentially pure sexiness on four wheels, packs a 3.5 litre twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine, 600 horses under the hood and a body that is all carbon fibre and aluminium.

It’s also a first for Forza, as the Ford deal allowed the game developers to work with the car manufacturer during the design stage of both the car and the game.

“We’ve been doing this game series for a long time,” Turn 10’s John Wendl said to Polygon. “But this is the first time we’ve been able to launch a car and a game at the same time.”

They’re doing some crazy things with Ford Performance and it takes a lot of work and understanding for us to get that realism into the game.

Beyond the Ford deal however, we’ll have to wait until E3 for a proper look at the game, where it will be playable. Although I have a feeling that the security is going to yell at me again for licking the supercar that they have on display at the Microsoft booth every year.

    XBox One exclusive? What?! Shocker… 😉

    It’ll be a fantastic racing game… All Forza games are. But it may have a lot to live up to, with the arrival of Project Cars in March. That may set the new bar when it comes to racing games! Can’t wait – let 2015 be the year of amazing racing game titles! 🙂

    Hopefully this one will be better than Forza 4.15 and be an actually racing sim, not an arcade cross.

    F-150 Raptor cant wait to take that “race car” to the track and “tune” it.

    Not marketing its a game…

    Interesting. I was so chuffed for Forza 5 until all that payment nonsense popped up and the costing of it made things even worse. Like why must you be forced to buy a car pack for one car you need in a specific race? Its insane. Anyway… Ill see how this one turns out.

    The only racing simulator of this generation of next-generation games, surpassing the previous next-generation of racing sims.

    I just bought Forza 5 last week and I think it is fantastic. The driver aids are superb, meaning the game is accessible to ham fisted players like me. I love it.

    Also, from what I can read, if you turn off all the aids and go “pro” it is pretty damn good too,

    BUT, the critics slammed Forza 5 for not being big enough? What? That game is massive, truly, massive. Superbly big. Massive and massive. I understand 4 was much bigger, but I ask you, with blisters on my thumbs, does it need to be that big?

    So, I expect more of the same from Forza 6, but with better graphics in certain areas.
