Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios to debut Ford’s all-new GT in Forza Motorsport 6

I’m here in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show for the Forza Motorsport 6 announcement and I can’t think of a better place in the world than the Motor City to reveal Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios have teamed up with Ford Motor Company to bring the all-new Ford GT supercar to the world of Forza. Having seen the car in person, all I can say is fans of the series are in for a wild ride.

The Forza Motorsport 6 cover will feature the Ford GT and the game will include other Ford performance vehicles including the Shelby GT350 and F-150 Raptor. Details about the game will be released later this year.

    I’m all for Forza Motorsports 6 if you guys will PLEASE knock off the garbage with the nickle and dime’ing us for “added content”. I loved Forza 5, but got so sick and tired of the constant attempts at selling me more. When I buy a game, I want my game, not a shell with possibilities for more if I pay more. Just release the full game and don’t let it be constant sales pitch.

    Honestly, at this point, I won’t buy it when it first comes out. I will wait a year until the game goes on major clearance so I can get the DLC as well and it’ll total the cost of a full game, instead of buying it day one and ending up paying over a hundred for the “full” experience. Kind of getting sick of that in the industry these days.

    But I am excited to see what they do with it next.

      I was just giving this some thought the other day and don’t think it’s fair to compare today’s games with “less” content and charging for more with games today . Reality is we get way more content for the base prices then we used to for the same money back before they started DLC & minor in game transactions. IMHO

        Well, I look at games like Gran Turismo for the Playstation (original) and it came with WAY more cars and tracks than today’s racing games. And all the content was on the disc. It was, and still is considered one of the greatest racing games ever. They didn’t have to charge extra for more tracks or cars, the game came with plenty of both. This is what I want to see, a complete game without the constant sales pitches being thrown in my face.

      It not the same thing for games that need to license the cars. They had to pay for cars to put them in the game and some cars cost alot more to license then other. So they can’t put them in the game for $60 and still make money.

      the only think that really p’s me off is all the dlc is already ON THE DISC.
      forza 5 I got on day one, got the season pass and when the dlc came out I was like …”wow 11meg, 20 meg, 9 meg”.
      I think there is a law being passed in the uk about on disc dlc from the office of fair trading.
      there statement was simple “if the content is already on the disc then it should be available from the moment the game starts”

        I’ve searched for the last 30 minutes on Google trying to find any hint of some sort of legislation by any government over on disk DLC and I can not find anything. If you have the link to show that England is cracking down on it, that’d be great. Otherwise, I doubt it ever happened.

        Didn’t the game update every time new DLC came out though? I’m pretty sure it did, the update was the actual assets & the small download was just the unlock key (or whatever)

      • Guest

        Yeah, you’re right, it did. The DLC wasn’t on the discs. What I do dislike though, is when a sequel doesn’t come with all the previous DLC cars and tracks that we paid for.
        I know licensing issues might prevent some from being there, but when it’s the same 100+ cars coming back in DLC packs, it’s a nono for me from now on.

        Burnout is far from milked. The last Burnout was Paradise 7 years ago. Most other racing franchises get new games every year or in some cases twice a year. Might want to recheck you definition of milking.

        Edit: Also, Burnout has been around since the early ps2 days, most of the big racing franchises that are still being milked didn’t come out until like halfway through the 360 lifecycle and already have just as many if not more versions than Burnout does.

      The game was built from the ground up with new scans of the cars and tracks made to make it even more detailed. On top of this, the cars licensed in 4 had been licensed for the series on 360 for previous iterations (2/3/Horizon). Those rights -presumably- did not carry over to the One so they had to repurchase them, hence the payment requirement.

    Forza 5 was a massive let down, not enough content, only 200 cars (over 500 in past games) and very few tracks.

      Would you race all 500 cars? I’ve used about 20 out of the 200 available. I can see what you are getting at but it’s overkill surely.

      • Pickleofwar

        Its not the fact only 200 cars were available its how the list was horrible, there were about 8 Lamborghini’s that were basically the same, many other manufactures had this issue.
        If they do 200 cars that haven’t got any close repeats that’ll be fine but in terms of variet F5 sucked, my highlight of Forza is taking the worst cars (like the Aygo in F4) and pushing ridiculous upgrades on it.

      • Finaldeath

        What makes you think having 500 will give it any more variety than 200? Just about every racing game i have ever played in my 26 years of living has had only like a dozen truly difference cars with the rest pretty much being different skins or very minor differences. And way back in the day racing games had 1 car and sometimes 5 or 6 different colors for that car.

        They can but they won’t. How i said it is how it always ends up happening. They always brag about having hundreds of cars but when the game comes out it always ends up being a handful of different cars then a dozen variants of each of those cars. More tracks are far more important than adding hundreds of cars when 99.999999999% of people will only use maybe a dozen of them. Those people may get all the cars for completions sake but they won’t use them.
