Xbox Australia has just started playing music to the ears of motorsport fans across the country. The world famous Mount Panorama ‘Bathurst’ track will be in Forza 5. Take a look at that screen shot form the game, it looks amazing.
This will make it the only current driving game to feature an Australian track. While the Forza franchise has flirted with Aussie V8 Supercars in the future, it only offered vehicles, but never tracks. To map the circuit accurately would be a massive investment and technically challenging, but as a racing fan who’s already pre-ordered Forza 5, this is a very, very welcome announcement.
It looks like the team at Forza will be working closely with Xbox One, with another announcement this morning that this Xbox One branded Holden will be competing in this year’s Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
Watch the liveries go on in this video introducing the car.
