  1. The Fate of the Furious Is Coming To Forza 7 Turn 10 have announced that Forza Motorsport 7 will receive a ‘The Fate of the Furious Car Pack’ at launch and that it will be free to the Deluxe and Ultimate Editions of the game, or available standalone for a price. Created in collaboration with Universal Brand Development, the pack features ten cars all authentically reproduced from those found in the latest of the action-packed blockbuster series. Reaction to the pack has been mixed, with some scratching their heads and questioning whether the ‘Motorsport’ branch of Forza is fitting for a pack like this, especially as the 'Day One' pack that is given as one of the bonuses for those who have bought the more expensive versions - feeling that it’s more suited to the Horizon games than it’s track based brethren. Forza Motorsport 7 - ‘The Fate of the Furious' Car Pack 1951 Chevrolet Fleetline Special The Fate of the Furious Edition 1966 Chevrolet Corvette The Fate of the Furious Edition 1968 Dodge Charger The Fate of the Furious Edition 1971 Plymouth GTX The Fate of the Furious Edition 2013 Subaru BRZ The Fate of the Furious Edition 2014 Local Motors Rally Fighter The Fate of the Furious Edition 2015 Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupe The Fate of the Furious Edition 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT S The Fate of the Furious Edition 2016 Subaru WRX STI The Fate of the Furious Edition 2018 Dodge Demon The Fate of the Furious Edition Amid the mad machinery in the pack is Dom’s all-wheel-drive (!) Dodge Charger in all its battle armoured glory, a gorgeous Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupe, a slightly heavily worse for wear Chevrolet Fleetline Special, and several more. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="seven-post-image" ids="7356,7355,7357,7362,7363,7360,7359,7361,7364,7358] It is what it is though, and so if you are a big 'FnF' fan then this is very likely right up your street racing avenue.

  2. Forza Motorsport 7 Demo Out Now! The Forza Motorsport 7 demo is out now for download on Xbox One and PC, giving players a real taste of what they can expect from the next in the amazing Forza Motorsport series before it officially launches in a little under two weeks. While waiting for it to download you might like this glimpse at the demo’s content courtesy of the official Hoonigan YouTube channel. A bunch of them got together and challenged each other to a hot lap contest and through this we get a good view of the racing experiences that can be had in it. It also gives players of the demo something to aim for as all the times are posted. And with players being able to take a heavy but extremely speedy racing truck round Mugello, pilot the cover car Porsche 911 GT2 RS through one of the new Dubai environment tracks, or hang on to a Nissan GT-R at a soaking wet storm hit Nurburgring Grand Prix circuit, there should be enough here to tide them over until they get their hands it on for themselves. In addition to this Turn 10 have set loose the official Launch Trailer and posted a new batch of screenshots. Right enough of that, go download the demo for Xbox One or PC now. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="small-post-image" ids="7325,7324,7319,7322,7323,7326,7321,7320] [via Forzamotorsport.net] 2017-09-19 21:01 GMT: Updated screenshots with high-resolution versions
  3. Assetto Corsa 1.15 & Ready to Race DLC Out Now On Console Assetto Corsa on PS4 and Xbox One have received a new update that brings the console versions up to 1.15, Alongside this, the 'Ready to Race' car pack has also become available to purchase. Just like the big update of 1.14 before, this latest one introduces yet more goodness to the game that players will be thrilled to see. Improved AI that makes the computer-controlled opponents even racier will be very welcome to those who enjoy playing offline and are itching for more of a challenge. And it may have taken it’s time in getting here, having been one of the main demands since the early days of the game’s release, but customisable button mapping is now accessible. Assetto Corsa – Ready to Race PS4 & Xbox One Console players have become used to having to wait a while to get the same content that has been released previously for the PC but it still hurts when the time difference between it is realised. That 'Ready to Race' car pack that has just now dropped for the PS4 and Xbox One has taken almost four months to get to them. 'Ready to Race' Car Pack Audi R18 e-tron quattro 2014 Audi R8 LMS 2016 Audi TT Cup 2016 Audi TT RS (VLN) 2013 Lotus 3-Eleven Maserati MC12 GT1 McLaren 570S McLaren P1 GTR Toyota Celica ST185 Turbo Toyota TS040 Hybrid For many, the wait finally being over will be enough as the RTR pack is a stellar one – there is just so much variety in it with dedicated race cars, a McLaren road car and even a rally car making up its contents. (video below from PC announcement) It's good to see information starting to spill out about the game again, been a bit quiet in that area lately. But with this, along with the PC release date announcement of the Ferrari 70th Anniversary car pack, the future of AC is always something that can be looked forward to.
  4. Forza Motorsport 7 Demo Announced Turn 10 have announced that Forza Motorsport 7 has gone gold, and that a demo will be available for Xbox One and PC on September 19th. We are also treated to a look at the official commercial for the next in the highly-popular racing series. ‘Musical Cars’ is a fun advert which takes on the typical musical chairs theme but you guessed it, replaces them with cars. Watching a group of people, including professional driver Ken Block, nonchalantly walk around a collection featuring his own “Hoonicorn” Mustang, a Pagani Huayra, Plymouth Barracuda and more, the music inevitably stops and the race is on to not be left without a driver's seat. https://youtu.be/_PKL3323wkQ Those who weren’t too slow, get into their cars and delight our ears to a delicious symphony of engine start ups and exhaust notes. A really nice top down shot shows each one speeding away and heading out on to the track... except for the Plymouth, which just wants to burn rubber it seems. A brief bit of on-track action follows, and then it switches from the inside of the real car, to the in-game version. As I said it's a fun watch, with an aim to show the fun that all types of player can experience. Make sure you watch the whole thing as there is a nice little finisher at the very end that raises a smile. Forza Motorsport 7 Demo The official demo for Forza Motorsport 7 is coming for both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. The demo features three unique racing experiences in Forza Motorsport 7, showcasing the depth and breadth of the experiences available in the game. Drive the Forza Motorsport 7 cover car – the Porsche 911 GT2 RS – to the brand-new Dubai circuit and experience the thrill of navigating the Jebel Hafeet Pass, one of the most famous driving roads in the world. Or, pilot the massive Mercedes-Benz Tankpool racing truck to victory at the high-speed Mugello circuit in Italy. For drivers who want the ultimate test, the Nissan NISMO GT-R LM is available for a race at the Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit. Forza Motorsport 7 is out October 3rd for Xbox One and PC. (Ultimate Edition owners get earlier access on September 29th) [via Forzamotorsport.net]
  5. Assetto Corsa v1.14 Xbox One Assetto Corsa fans on Xbox One have had a hell of a time the last month or so watching those on PS4 enjoy everything that the v1.14 update brought and delivered to the game, but at long last, they too will get to join in. Kunos Simulazioni have confirmed on their Facebook that the update has finally passed submission and has the green light for a release some time this week. This update is being waited for eagerly, as it brings custom and private lobbies, a selection of excellent free bonus cars and the awesome Scotland-based ‘Highlands’ track. Update v 1.14 has passed submission and we will be launching mid-next week! Stay tuned for more info! Once again, thanks for your continued show of support! It means a lot to the team. Along with the usual fixes and improvements, v1.14 has been looked upon as bringing new life to the game for many and so it is good to see that those on Xbox One will be able to get in on that action too, in the coming days.
  6. Project Scorpio Becomes Xbox One X Microsoft has taken the covers off of Project Scorpio and revealed its real name to be, Xbox One X. Keeping the ‘Xbox One’ in the name shows that MS has stayed true to their promise that this is in fact just a super powerful version of their current console. Priced at $499 and launching November 7th, the One X is aimed at hardcore gamers and this new system is a seriously hefty step up from its siblings, the One and One S. With that sort of premium there has to be some monumental increases in power, and there is. A beefier Radeon GPU capable of pumping out six teraflops of graphical processing power, 12GB GDDR5 RAM and a built-in 4K Blu-ray player means native 4K visuals are a reality, although buyers without a 4K tv will feel and see the benefits on a 1080p set too. Despite being the most powerful of the Xbox One systems, amazingly the One X will also be the smallest! Incredible how over time technology gets to a stage where such a significant increase in power and performance can be scaled down to be even smaller. It’s not a massive difference between it and the One S but still it’s quite remarkable that this is the case. Perhaps surprising (at least to me it is) is that the included controller is not an Elite but instead a standard one. And is a 1TB HDD enough space for storing all those 4K native and enhanced titles that are to come? External storage is obviously an option but hasn't the ability to swap hard drives become the obvious and preferred choice these days? When rumours were circulating around the price being what it turned out to be, some were put off, however they were willing to accept it had these two items been more on the premium side. Whatever the case, the One X will be the most powerful console out on the market when it launches in November and will have to stick around for a few years before a next-gen Xbox can be shown. Well at least you would hope so.
  7. Forza Horizon 3 Loves (Hates?) Mountain Dew A new car pack is out now for Forza Horizon 3 and response to the ‘Mountain Dew’ Car Pack is tepid at best, with more players than usual calling it out as weak. The main reason for this is because back in January the developer version of the PC game was mistakenly made available, and as a result, a look at possible upcoming future content could be performed. Therefore, with players waiting for their desires to show up, it is understandable that a new pack will be criticised or result in disappointment for them. However, even if that info wasn’t already known, impressions from around point to this pack still failing to excite players. By all means that doesn’t mean every car pack has to be gold as players will put up with a crap car among the rest. But that’s just it, the rest doesn’t save it, and that’s what is making this a hard sell. Forza Horizon 3 - 'Mountain Dew' Car Pack 1951 Holden FX Sedan 1971 Chevrolet Vega GT 1973 AMC Gremlin X 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX 1996 Ferrari F50 GT 2013 Dodge Dart GT 2016 Lotus 3-Eleven Maybe it will get by on just providing something else to drive and tune in the game, and who knows, perhaps it will find its admirers out there.

  8. Need for Speed Payback The name of the next title in EA’s long-running Need for Speed arcade racing series has been revealed as Need for Speed Payback ("Payback") and will launch worldwide for PS4, PC and Xbox One on November 10th. A trailer for the new game, that has been in development for two years, was premiered today and already it is causing quite a bit of discussion between players and fans. Mostly because a broad set of them wanted nothing more than what is essentially a carbon copy of the 2015 edition -- just throw in more street racing, drifting and customisation and these folk are more than happy. Others however are excited at the prospect of starting with a piece of scrap and building it into something magnificent, more challenging police pursuits (hello Rhino!) and a story that seems to be more involved than its predecessor. From the first-look it does appear that “Payback” is actually including aspects that all NFS fans have enjoyed the series for over its time, whether it can all coexist or will make some feel excluded because of this spreading out, will remain to be seen. Watching the reveal trailer above it cannot be missed that it contains many sequences that echo those of the Fast and Furious movies, particularly the more recent outings. But consider that the much loved Underground and Underground 2 were games that emulated those films of the day and in a funny way "Payback" is doing exactly the same. (FAMILY!) As with all NFS games it is the cars and where you will be playing with them that matters most to people. And “Payback” is set in a region called Fortune Valley, a place that closely resembles the areas of Nevada, including of course, Las Vegas. The cars range from your everyday street cars to supercars and onwards towards the pinnacle of the hypercar. For those worried that the EA exclusive Porsche deal may have resulted in some bad blood between the two, fear not as Porsche is in. We won’t have to wait long to get a better look at “Payback” as the game will be at EA Play along with a comprehensive showing at E3, both of which take place in the coming weeks (of course you already knew that right?). Need for Speed Payback is due out on November 10th worldwide for PS4, PC and Xbox One. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="seven-post-image" ids="7001,7002,7003,7004,7005,7006]
  9. DiRT 4 Rallycross Gameplay If there is one motorsport that is fun to watch every time it is on then it is Rallycross. Combining typical versus racing with rallying is just something that works and DiRT 4 showcases this with its newest trailer. Being the official game of the World Rallycross Championship, it would be easy to discount DiRT 4 and see their push of this form of racing as an attempt at getting people into something they are heavily involved with. But this would be unfair, as rallycross is just such an immense display of control and skill, coupled with fierce rivalry, culminating into an incredible spectacle for those who are watching. And because of this, it is of no wonder that its popularity continues to grow. As when you have famous World Rally drivers such as Petter Solberg, Sebastian Loeb and Ken Block taking part, you just know that it has to be something special. Solberg himself is helping make the whole experience in the game even more authentic, providing feedback to the team at Codies into shaping it into as close as possible to the real thing. Whereas in rallying it is the surroundings you need to watch out for, in these races it is the other drivers that will be the ones to cause a spin, crash or even flip. It’s not an all out destruction derby or anything but there is certainly plenty scraped paint, dented bumpers, bent side panels and more, seen often at the end of races. Featuring multiple classes including Group B classics, Rallycross is sure to one mode that gains a lot of attention from players and probably gives the real championship some extra supporters. DiRT 4 is out for PC, PS4 and Xbox One in early June 2017.
  10. Assetto Corsa Console Update - Get Ready! The big Assetto Corsa console update (v1.14) that will add the ability to create custom lobbies, the new ‘Highlands’ track, and deliver five free bonus cars, is coming to PS4 players on May 17th. Announced on the official social media pages of the game the latest update which was detailed only recently is the BIG one for many console players, as it will give them the ability to set up their own racing lobbies online and also allow for the creation of custom championships offline. Therefore, whatever kind of racer you are, there's something here to keep you interested. It was expected that this update would likely be more towards the end of May rather than only a number of days after the earlier announcement by the team. However in saying that we are still waiting to hear about the Xbox One release. But with this being Kunos, at least we know we will be informed about whatever is happening with it, and hopefully Microsoft will supply them a drop date that they can then shout out. Many console players will be excited about the landing of this update as it brings a lot of extra content by way of the new Scotland-based 'Highlands' track (PC announcement trailer below), which was created in partnership with nVidia and Sparco because “the perfect track does not exist”. Ignoring the sales pitch, the new track and their layouts is designed to thrill and test players’ bravery with its high-speed sections along narrow roads that are littered with boulders along the edges. Factor in five new pieces of free machinery such as the Mazda 787B and this update will not only have current and previous players jumping back in, but could also sell the game to those who have waited. And if the update proves reliable, it would be hard to argue that won't be the case. [via Assetto Corsa Facebook]
  11. Assetto Corsa “Ready To Race” DLC An all-new premium DLC car pack is heading to Assetto Corsa next week and it is very much squarely aimed at the racing enthusiast, with the forthcoming release presenting a package that caters to multiple racing flavours. Coming first to players on the PC through Steam on May 18th, and then (much?) later for those on PS4 and Xbox One, this newest pack provides the “most wanted” ready to race models from Audi, Lotus, McLaren and Toyota. Assetto Corsa - “Ready To Race” Cars Audi R8 LMS 2016 Audi R18 e-tron quattro Audi TT Cup 2016 Audi TT VLN 2013 Lotus Eleven Maserati MC12 GT1 McLaren 570S McLaren P1 GTR Toyota Celica ST185 Turbo Toyota TS040 Hybrid As can be seen from the list above, the term “Race” is being broadly stretched, as with the inclusion of the Lotus 3-Eleven we must be looking at the local trackday kind, whereas the McLaren 570S must mean the manner in which speeding away from the lights in the city is one too. Obviously I am joking here, though the McLaren road car does seem a bit of strange one you have to admit. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="small-post-image" ids="6920,6928,6926,6924,6919,6921,6922,6927,6923,6925] There will be an update (v1.14) released on the same day and some of what this will address is shown below. Further details about the “next major Steam update” to be revealed over the coming days. Assetto Corsa PC – v1.14 Update Info Added wind algorithm Added AI Aggression selection More AI differences within a single lap to generate more battles Added AI wing setup variations New AI algorithms for understeer detection and downshifting Improved Downshift Protection Updated Steam statistic reader to synchronize steam achievement [via Assetto Corsa Facebook]
  12. Assetto Corsa Console Update v1.14... update The team behind Assetto Corsa are eager to keep their console population informed about what is going on with the approaching BIG v1.14 update. Unfortunately that doesn’t include a release date, however in a posting by publisher 505 Games we learn of everything it will have when it does come. For many online racers it will be the arrival of Custom Lobbies that will be the best thing, whereas those who play offline will enjoy being able to create their own Custom Championships. And if you’re sick of the view from the cockpit position then smile, as this is now possible to customise during a session. But that’s just the tip of it, as there is an astonishing amount of FREE bonus content landing also. The “Highlands” track, based in Scotland, is the first of these, PC players have been able to enjoy this and its four configurations for a while now, but in what we hope is not too long. so too will those on PS4 and Xbox One. Highlands – The original layout, 8152 meters long, filled with fast flowing path with curves and several jumps. Highlands Long – An extension of the original layout, 12191 meters long and has all the characteristics of the original layout. This layout features some slower curves, a fast series of left and right turns, after a passage between rocks and the distinctive 3km long “Cabhag straight” Highlands Drift – A configuration born to create long powerslides with supercars and hypercars. At 5167 meters long, this layout features long, flat and smooth curves, perfect for holding a constant power slide. The “tower lùb”, guards the surroundings at the top of the hill. Highlands Short – The shortest configuration, only 1714 meters, but based entirely inside the city. Incredibly intense and requires the concentration of a pro. Should you have exhausted the usage of the current available vehicles then smile, as five more are on their way and they won’t cost you a thing. The selection is extremely varied, with two from Mazda that could not be any more different to each other (unless one of them could fly), an Audi rallying legend, a 1200bhp producing bi-turbo Lamborghini Gallardo, and an extremely nice sounding BMW M4. Those last two are kind of already existing examples in new clothes but for no cost to us, we’ll take it. Assetto Corsa – PS4 / Xbox One Free Bonus Content Highlands (4 layouts) Audi Quattro S1 E2 Mazda MX5 NA Mazda 787B BMW M4 Akrapovic Lamborghini Gallardo SL Step3 There is also a quite substantial upgrade to the physics engine, with the new v10 tyre physics added along with the following: UPGRADED PHYSICS ENGINE * Updated minimum pressures and optimum pressures for various cars. * New v10 tyre wear algorithms more sensitive to load for all cars. * Graining is now reducing when driving in good temperature conditions. * New and updated V10 street, semislick, vintage, and race slicks tyres for all cars. A total of 151 cars updated. * Updates for cars that already had V10 tyres. * Updated chassis balance and inertias for all 151 available cars. * Updated engine coast braking for street cars. * Updated Brake heat for the following cars * Shelby Cobra * Lamborghini Miura * Alfa Romeo GTA * Abarth 595 * Ford Escort RS * Ford GT40 * Lotus 25 * Lotus 49 * Maserati 250F 6C and 12C * Lotus 72D * Ferrari 312T * Ferrari F40 Don’t worry premium content buyers, you’re not being completely left out, as if you splashed out on the Porsche Pack Vol. 3 (or the Porsche Season Pass) then you will find the 911 RSR 2017 will be yours. Just like they promised. Providing there are no other delays with submission or anything else unforeseen, the long-awaited update should be with us at some point this May.

  13. Project CARS 2 Special Editions Are Pretty Special In today’s gaming space, special editions and pre-order bonuses are fairly routine and let’s be honest, not that special at all. There are some exceptions to this but generally it’s run-of-the-mill cheap extras that are usually provided. This is not the case at all with Project CARS 2. As rather fitting for a team called Slightly Mad Studios, they and Bandai Namco (shoutout to Lee ‘Pizza and Games’ Kirton!) have revealed the various special editions that are going to be available. Showing a high degree of respect towards their fans, the lowest version of these, called the 'Limited Edition', will be the same price as the Standard copy and will include the game (O RLY?!), steelbook case, stickers!, and an exclusive ‘Japanese Cars Pack’ that comes with four models from those of Honda and Nissan. A step up from that is the ‘Collector’s Edition’. This is where the cool stuff starts to come in, as inside the very nice looking Collector’s Edition Box there is everything that the 'Limited Edition' has as well as a Season Pass Download Code that entitles holders to the non-purchaseable ‘The Motorsport Pack’, a 200 Page Art Book, some Esport Live VIP Pass that gets you preferential treatment at real-world events, and an awesome looking 1:43 scale diecast McLaren 720S, in one-off SMS-R Stealth Satin. However, for as incredible as the ‘Collector’s Edition’ is, there is one other, and it is rightly called the ‘Ultra Edition’. Limited to only 1000 copies, this is the dog’s dangly bits of special editions, as contained within its Ultra Edition Box is the game, steelbook case, stickers!, DLC, Season Pass, Esports VIP thing and the Art Book from those above. And as good as all that is, we now reach a whole other level, as on top of all that, there is an individually numbered cap and a McLaren 720S sketchbook. This details the development and design of the car itself, with never-before-seen sketches, models, clays and renders, giving readers an in-depth look at how McLaren’s new supercar came to be. Wait is that it? I hear you say. What about that sweet little model the Collector’s get? Well dear reader I have left the best to last, as there is a model in this one but it’s not a cool little 1:43 scale version, instead for your major purchase, you get a 1:12 scale version!! The majority of people have probably seen 1:18 scale models for the most part in shops and perhaps in car showrooms, and even model collectors tend to prefer this size (yep, I do) due to the price to size ratio, and so a model car this size is absolutely nuts! But it is also phenomenal too, as this thing looks soooooo good. The satin black and orange colour scheme really is striking. And so if you are not loaded enough to put in an order for the real machine, well then this could be the next best thing. It will cost a pretty penny but for a change, it does actually look like you will get a good amount of worth for your hard-earned moolah. With E3 on the way and the halfway point of the year approaching fast, a release date other than LATE 2017, should be heading our way in the very near future. Project CARS 2 is due out before the end of 2017 and will be available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. [via Projectcarsgame.com]
  14. Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels – Looping The Way! It’s time to get loopy Forza Horizon 3 players as the Hot Wheels expansion is now available, coming in at around a 3GB download. This, the second expansion for the game, revealed in the latter stages of April, introduces a whole new style of play and complete change of direction (quite literally!) to the typical racing formula. And because of this, it would be fair to say that there has been a bit of a mixed reaction from people towards it. However, for a number of those who were unsure, a lot of their worries were removed with the stream held at the Hot Wheels offices on Monday. As with the footage that was shown, it was easy to see just how fun this was going to be (yes I know that rhymed). Also evident, was that this was no lousy, no effort cash-in, as the tracks, their details, and the additional cars, were at the high level that is known and expected from a Forza title. Really, the workmanship that's gone into the creation of the tracks to make them look like the actual thing, is quite extraordinary. Viewable too, was the challenge and some of the chaos that awaits players: Be it falling off the edge of the track when aiming for that perfect line through a corner, completely missing the other side of, or barrel rolling long jumps, carrying too much speed and driving over the wall-edge, taking a wrong turn, or perhaps getting t-boned at a cross-section, it was all there, and it brought the realisation that this is actually Hot Wheels but, done in a semi-realistic manner. And sure, there’s speed power boosts, but hey, how else are you going to stick to 90 degree surfaces or loop-the-loop, if you’re not carrying some seriously deranged speed? Forza Horizon Hot Wheels – Car List 1969 Hot Wheels Twin Mill 1972 Chrysler Valiant Charger R/T E49 2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang 2007 Toyota Hilux Arctic Trucks AT38 2010 Pagani Zonda R 2011 Hot Wheels Bone Shaker 2012 Hot Wheels Rip Rod 2016 Jeep Trailcat 2016 Zenvo STI Plus a Barn Find! Diehard interior view drivers get an extra bonus too. As a couple of the Hot Wheels cars will have them needing to tackle these layouts without being able to see what is in front of them that well, let alone the dizziness and confusion felt when going through the loops or round some insane camber. Now tell me that doesn’t sound fun! Understandably there will still be those out there who will not want the expansion or will not like that their Expansion Pass is made up of this, but seriously if you are in that latter camp. Go download the content and give it a go, or better yet if you have kids let them have a shot as that’s what’s great about this. It let’s us all, be kids. Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels is out now on the Microsoft Store for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. It is available as a standalone purchase, or is included as a part of the Expansion Pass.

  15. The Crew Passes 12 Million Players Over 12 million players have test driven open world racer The Crew, Ubisoft have revealed. More than two years after its release, players are still jumping on and exploring the vast replica of the USA that is the game’s world. Needless to say, the team are delighted at this achievement, and keeping in line with this ‘12’ milestone, the official Ubisoft blog roped in 12 members from developer Ivory Tower, to say a little something. We’ve only chosen a few but you can view all at the source link below. Every time I realise how strong and growing our community is, I can’t help but get emotional. Releasing The Crew was a childhood dream come true: building a whole universe dedicated to exploration, competition, adventure, and creating glorious moments with friends or solo, behind the wheel of our favourite rides. I’ve never thought this vision would strike a chord with so many and I am always thankful to see how more and more players connect to this world, filling it with their own challenges and creations. One of them is a screenshot I’ve been using as a wallpaper on my smartphone for over a year now (see pic). It represents everything I like about The Crew: the call of the road, the fact that the destination doesn’t really matter as long as you’re enjoying the journey. And really, ours has just begun! – Stéphane “Fergus” Beley, Game Director We live in hope that the “ours has just begun”, is a hint to a possible sequel, that could see a reveal at this year’s E3. The Lead Game Designer isn’t afraid to admit that he has been beaten by many a player, but even with that revelation there is no bitterness held, as still they share a nice little tip for how to perform a better drift. From low-key road trips on country roads to exhilarating chases across the most iconic cities, I’ve lived countless adventures at your side these past two years. And even if I’ve designed a lot of challenges and missions in The Crew, I have to admit I’ve been whipped pretty badly by some of you in PVP! I still have a couple of aces up my sleeve, though, and today I’ll give away one of them: when you want to drift, just hold A & B at the same time – That’s called power drifting, and that’s my gift to all those who keep challenging us, helping us deliver the best experience possible, and giving us the ambition to always go one step further than expected. After all, this is your game too! – Paul Narducci, Lead Game Designer Depending on how you prefer your handling in a game like this – you will either love, or not have fond feelings for this next one: A few days ago, I went to a huge event and found myself in the middle of a crowd of 400,000 people. Being able to see and be part of the human tide was both impressive and humbling. Then it hit me: there are 30 times as many The Crew players! The rush of emotion I got was overwhelming – thank you all so much! You have no idea how inspiring you are. Fun fact: I used to tweak the vehicles’ handling on what we called “the Branchu Loop”, north-west of Monument Valley. Then I noticed you guys were using Observatory Dash as a training mission, so I’ve taken up using it as a test-drive spot – and still do! – Sylvain Branchu, Vehicle Handling Designer Post-release support has been quite something for this game, with the update to the engine, introducing weather, and of course the photo mode. These were all something the community asked for, and incredibly, they got it! Being big fans of the latter ourselves, it was nice to see that there is passion in the team for it too. Like a lot of our players, I’m a big fan of our Photo Mode. Between my everyday job and a burning passion for nice pictures, I’ve quickly become a real screenshot machine! So here are some tips for the amateur photographers out there: take the fuzziness into account before capturing, it’ll help you get more realistic pics. For tight close-ups, don’t zoom in right away. First, set the focal length to a minimum, then choose your angle, set the focus to your liking, and shoot. Don’t forget to send us the result – here’s one of my personal creations! – Aurèle Gannat, Game Designer This last one, displays the feelings many players have for a game like this, as in how it is all about the freedom given to the player to play the game how they want to. That's what gives this title and those like it, longevity. They are the game that people will jump back on during bouts of playing others, as there is just not really anything else like it that allows the passing of time to be done in such a manner. (except for going for a real drive of course) I was really into the Artic Monkeys’ AM album when I started working on The Crew, and especially the song “Do I Wanna Know”, which is part of the game’s soundtrack. To me, it feels like the spirit of that song has soaked the whole game’s DNA: it’s the perfect road-trip track, the kind you want to turn all the way up while watching the scenery go by, goofing around with friends, or showing off in your favourite ride. It’s really touching to see how players share this kind of connection to the game, giving meaning to even the smallest details. It makes us all part of this big community. – Lucie Dugand, Level Designer Well done to all those behind and involved with the game, it’s been a wild run the last years, and we wouldn’t mind seeing even more of it, in the future!

  16. Assetto Corsa Console Private Lobbies Delay The wait for the Assetto Corsa console update that will at long last bring custom lobbies, has unfortunately received another delay. Kunos Simulazioni shared the news, and their sorrow, at not being able to get the update out before the end of April as they had hoped on their official social media channels over the weekend. To help ease the upset however, they did provide a few screens of the feature in action and some of the many settings ardent players will be able to use, when it does eventually land. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="seven-post-image" ids="6828,6829,6830] Console players of the game shouldn’t be too bothered with this latest push back as let’s be honest, a lengthy wait is not unexpected in the console scene. We would hazard a guess that May will be the month it will actually become available but we wouldn’t bet a chicken dinner on it.
  17. Forza Horizon 3 & Hot Wheels! If there is one thing we have seen games do recently, it is to embrace the insanity! With games like Trackmania Turbo being the more modern pioneers of all-out blistering paced gravity defying racing action, it was telling that this gameplay style was popular with people as others seemed to latch on to it, such as GTA Online. And now Forza is getting in on it too! The second expansion pack for Forza Horizon 3 is due to release on May 9th and sees the open-world driving and racing spectacular join up with ‘Hot Wheels’. If you aren’t already imagining what this means, then all you need to know is to picture in your head: A LOT of the colour orange, driving-on-the-wall type banking, multiple loop-the-loops, skyscraper-high tracks and destruction derby inviting cross-track sections. (or you can just watch the trailer below ) Set along six new islands located off the game’s Australian coast, each configuration is connected to one another and will have players performing extreme stunt driving as they tackle their way through an all-new campaign. Explore the world of Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels in an all-new campaign, completing events on your way towards the ultimate stunt-driving test, an epic Grand Finale taking place on the massive new Hot Wheels Goliath circuit. – Forzamotorsport.net It will be the multiplayer where this expansion is likely to shine, as players will not only be racing on those famous tracks, but also a brand-new Playground Arena in which they can go nuts in. For the competitive bunch, there is the option to use the ‘Stunt Swap’ feature to modify sections of the tracks (the stunts perhaps?) and then challenge your friends to have a go. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="seven-post-image" ids="6809,6803,6804,6802,6801] Being that this is a Hot Wheels expansion, there is naturally additional cars inside it. And yes, some of them are Hot Wheels legends! The Twin Mill, Bone Shaker and Rip Rod all feature in stunningly recreated excellence, with the Twin Mill looking especially good. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="seven-post-image" ids="6807,6806,6808] It’s not all weird and wonderful fictional recreations either, as there’s some normal road-going, non-road legal, off-roaders, and an unexpected arrival that you may recognise from how it helped Jeremy Clarkson and James May tackle Iceland easier than Hammond and his doggies did. Forza Horizon Hot Wheels – Car List 1969 Hot Wheels Twin Mill 1972 Chrysler Valiant Charger R/T E49 2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang 2007 Toyota Hilux Arctic Trucks AT38 2010 Pagani Zonda R 2011 Hot Wheels Bone Shaker 2012 Hot Wheels Rip Rod 2016 Jeep Trailcat 2016 Zenvo STI There are 10 cars in total, including a brand-new unannounced at this time Barn Find. This is a radical departure from the typical offering you would expect but it looks to be one that is all about delivering just good clean fun. Not taking yourself too seriously is something that usually works out well but only time will tell if the playerbase likes what’s here. [gallery type=rectangular" size="small-post-image" link="file" ids="6820,6819,6818,6817,6816,6815,6814,6813,6812] Available on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels will arrive on May 9th at a standalone cost of $19.99, or is available as part of the Forza Horizon 3 Expansion Pass. Forza Horizon 3 – PC Update Tucked away near the bottom of this announcement, is a mention about a new update coming to Windows 10 on the same day. This will include some “significant improvements” including but not limited to: new support for numerous popular driving wheels improved CPU performance additional graphics options More details of what else is to come in it will be revealed on May 9th.

  18. Porsche Expansion Pack Price CRASH The Forza series continues to deal out the feel goods when it comes to Porsche, as for a very limited time only, the Forza Motorsport 6 Porsche Expansion gets a monstrous price cut! Reduced by a massive 75% for Xbox Live Gold members, the pack can be had for very little money ($5/£4/€5) and contains over 20 Porsche models, a new campaign, new multiplayer events and a new track – Virginia International Raceway. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUvIzRiMnf0 The cream of the crop of the iconic brand are in, both racing and road-going. So no matter what generation you may be of, there will be a Porsche for you, and because of the genre defining sound expertise that Turn 10 have in their team, these cars can all be fully enjoyed, not just in looks, but in sound too. Therefore, if you held off from buying before but still enjoy a stint on Forza 6 now and again, then here is the perfect time to grab yourself this expansion and enjoy it even more! Forza Motorsport 6: Porsche Expansion Pack – Vehicles 1955 Porsche 550A Spyder 1957 Porsche 356A Speedster 1960 Porsche 718 RS 60 1970 Porsche 914/6 1982 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3 1987 Porsche #17 Racing Porsche AG 962c 1987 Porsche 959 1989 Porsche 944 Turbo 1998 Porsche #26 Porsche AG 911 GT1 98 2003 Porsche Carrera GT 2004 Porsche 911 GT3 2008 Porsche #7 Penske Racing RS Spyder Evo 2011 Porsche #45 Flying Lizard 911 GT3 RSR 2012 Porsche 911 GT2 RS 2012 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 (997) 2012 Porsche Cayenne Turbo 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder 2015 Porsche #19 Porsche Team 919 Hybrid 2015 Porsche Cayman GTS 2015 Porsche Macan Turbo Be quick mind, as this is only for a VERY LIMITED time!
  19. Forza Horizon 3 Porsche Pack The good news continues to spread out across the racing sphere in regards to Porsche availability, as it has just been announced that Porsche and Turn 10 have struck an “in-depth six-year partnership” together... and it kicks off immediately with the release of the ‘Porsche Car Pack’ for Forza Horizon 3. From the catalogue of Porsche comes seven models, ranging from the classic to the modern. Fans of the marque should be more than happy with what is on offer too, with standouts such as the 911 (993) GT2 and 1973 911 Carrera RS being my personal picks of the list. FH3: Porsche Car Pack 1955 Porsche 550A Spyder 1960 Porsche 718 RS 60 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 1995 Porsche 911 GT2 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 2017 Porsche Panamera Turbo With the epic selection that Assetto Corsa brought to their game, we hope that Turn 10 take some inspiration from that and look to bring some of the models that are not so well known to their current release and future iterations. I also reaaaallly hope that the days of exclusive Porsche – or any premier marque for that matter – licensing is dead and buried, and is something we will no longer have to put up with. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="small-post-image" ids="6744,6745,6746,6751,6747,6748,6749,6752,6750] Porsche #Forzathon Perhaps this is a requirement of acquiring the Porsche license now, as it is not often you see a Forza game give something as good as a Porsche away for free, but that’s what is going to happen in upcoming #Forzathon events in the next few weeks. And wow, there isn’t a single SUV in sight! ;) Event #1 Basket of Goodies 14th – 17th April Win the Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 and more! Event #2 Show Us What You’re Working With 21st – 24th April Take home the Porsche 959 and more! Event #3 Horizon Secret Service 28th April – 1st May Compete and win the Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3 and more! One-Day Event Putting on a show April 18th Win the Porsche 918 Spyder and more! The ‘Porsche Car Pack’ is available now to download for Xbox One and Windows 10 on their respective stores. [via Forzamotorsport.net]
  20. Project CARS now FREE on Xbox One Xbox Live Gold subscribers can now pick up Project CARS for free for their Xbox One as part of the monthly ‘Games with Gold’ program. Starting Feb 16th through to March 15th. This giveaway was revealed before the sequel was officially announced earlier this month, and is the perfect way to get players to try out the brand for themselves with the intention of hooking their interest in the progress of the new game, currently due to be released in late 2017. Players of the game have had quite a turbulent experience since its initial release, resulting in the title having its haters as well as its fans. Nevertheless, after several updates and some support being provided throughout this bumpy period, it now provides a respectable alternative within the console sim-racing genre. A racing wheel is highly recommended, as controller handling has never been much of a strong point with the game, however if you can make it work for you – and there are plenty of suggestions of settings to use out there – then you might just find it becoming another of your go-to racers. With the sequel around the corner, we have every reason to expect they might have ironed out these handling bugs. If you have Xbox Live Gold then we definitely recommend you give Project CARS a go, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain as it will cost you nothing, and you might find it quickly becoming one of your favourite racing games. Just a warning that starting off with the go-karts may sour your initial impressions, so we recommend that you go for something else. That is unless you really want to start from the bottom and make your way up.
  21. Porsche Pack Volume 3 – Console The latest update for Assetto Corsa, the Porsche Pack Volume 3 and Update 1.12 we reported on last week is finally out for the Playstation 4, with the updates coming to Xbox One players tomorrow. Console players of Assetto Corsa should now be getting used to being 2-3 months behind PC users when it comes to these updates, it must be very frustrating watching the clock to see when updates you've known about for a months will be available. As reported last week, the Xbox One update has suffered a delay, but thankfully the team over at Kunos have made an effort to get that delay down to just one more day. Great work! This is the final of three Porsche Packs, finishing the Assetto Corsa Porsche extravaganza. It is made up of racing icons of historic and contemporary racers. The pack was originally meant to contain a 2017 911 RSR, however this was delayed as the team felt the car was not ready for release yet and so the Turbo S was brought in to make up the numbers. Despite the swap, Kunos have promised that the new 911 RSR will land as a free upgrade to the Porsche Pack Vol. 3 when the car is ready. PORSCHE PACK VOL. 3 DLC CARS Porsche 911 GT3 Cup 2017 Porsche 911 GT3 R 2016 Porsche 919 Hybrid 2016 Porsche 908 LH Porsche 917 K Porsche 911 R Porsche 911 Turbo S The accompanying update has a few items of note, such as improvements to the damage and repair system intending to make collisions more realistic, some models have been tweaked including some cockpit instruments, and some Events for the 3 Porsche Packs and the ‘Red Pack’ have been added. The Macan Turbo, the last of the free Porsche bonus cars will be made available. Private Lobbies are not included in this update, however a comment on the Assetto Corsa’s Facebook page states that they are aiming to get it out in 1.13 (bad luck for some). Also missing is the Custom Championship feature, although you can be fairly confident that Kunos are working on getting this out for their console playing community. UPDATE V 1.12 Changelog Added support for DLC content: Porsche Pack #3 FREE bonus car! – Porsche Macan Turbo The damage and repair system has been improved. As a result, collisions will now appear more realistic Various 3D models have been tweaked and improved, including that of the cockpit instrumentation Reviewed damage curve and repair times Fixed wing damage model on Nissan GTR Fixed graphics kersCharge and kersInput for ERS system Fixed wrong online pit crew locations Improve AI cut detection Fixed Ferrari FXX K fins All-new special events 15 events for The Red Pack DLC 13 events for Porsche Pack Vol. 2 DLC 12 events for Porsche Pack Vol. 3 DLC
  22. Porsche Pack Vol. 3 For Console Next week will see the release of Porsche Pack Volume 3 and update 1.12 on the PlayStation 4, but unfortunately Xbox One users will have to wait as the update “encountered some issues” on the platform. The final of the three Porsche Packs will deliver yet another quality selection of vehicles from the Porsche brand, both old and new. Modern racing machinery gets a big nod, with two 991 GT3 racers and the 2016 Le Mans-winning 919 Hybrid among the pack's contents. Classic racing isn't overlooked either thanks to the inclusion of the iconic 908 Lang-Heck (LH) and 917 K, which are both ready and willing to be let loose on the numerous circuits and roads of Assetto Corsa. Last and by certainly no means least, the pack contains two of the most sought after modern Porsches, the 911 R and a 911 Turbo S. PORSCHE PACK VOL. 3 DLC CARS Porsche 911 GT3 Cup 2017 Porsche 911 GT3 R 2016 Porsche 919 Hybrid 2016 Porsche 908 LH Porsche 917 K Porsche 911 R Porsche 911 Turbo S For those of you who remember the early days of when the car lists were revealed, you might be thinking ‘there’s something not quite right here?’. And you would be right, as the 911 RSR 2017 was meant to be included in this pack. However due to Kunos not feeling that the car was ready, they replaced it with the Turbo S with the promise to bring the RSR 2017 as a free upgrade to owners of the pack at a later date. It seems that they will be keeping to their word, as this promise has been repeated in the blog post announcing this pack. However, there is no mention as to when this could be. As with previous updates, the latest will bring another free Porsche to owners of the standard game, with the last of these being the Macan Turbo. UPDATE V 1.12 RELEASE NOTES Added support for DLC content: Porsche Pack #3 FREE bonus car! – Porsche Macan Turbo The damage and repair system has been improved. As a result, collisions will now appear more realistic Various 3D models have been tweaked and improved, including that of the cockpit instrumentation All-new special events 15 events for The Red Pack DLC 13 events for Porsche Pack Vol. 2 DLC 12 events for Porsche Pack Vol. 3 DLC [via Assetto Corsa blog]
  23. Project CARS² After being teased by the numerous leaks and unofficial mutterings over the past few months, we are finally getting our first official look at Project CARS 2! ‘Difficult Second Album’ syndrome doesn’t seem to apply to pCARS2, with the trailer showing that it is improving on the high benchmark set by its predecessor. Other studios should be concerned with just how much Slightly Mad Studios are planning to include in this game, they are without a doubt living up to their name. The game will arrive sometime in late 2017 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The Trailer: In the video we are shown features such as day to night, fully dynamic weather including snow and icy conditions, and so many vehicles that it is clear pCARS2 will have much more than what the original offered. The accompanying info below the video states that there will be “over 170 licensed cars” and that it will have the “largest track roster ever on console” which is a huge increase over the pCARS1 inventory of vehicles and a strong statement to make in regards to the amount of circuits. Being a technical showcase, support for 12K and VR is also a given and no doubt will be shown in all its glory on some snazzy new Panasonic gear. (that deal is still in place right?) Because of fan feedback, eSports and player championships have also been given a boost and will see some excellent features ensuring that pCARS2 is the go-to game for those who want to run these events. A multitude of new locations can be seen, such as an ice circuit set within a snowy wilderness however the traditional tracks such as the Nurburgring and Brands Hatch are still present. Rest assured that the new Ice Circuit will push the traction of whatever you choose to drive to the limit! New vehicles are also a given, with the Aston Martin Vulcan, new Honda NSX and a green wheeled Ford F150 being a few examples highlighted in the trailer’s footage. And if rumours are true, Lamborghini, Porsche and Ferrari could make an appearance. Previously, it was easy to excuse Porsche due to the EA exclusivity agreement, but Lamborghini and Ferrari were sorely missed from the first game and so fingers crossed that pCARS2 remedies this. It is looking more promising for Porsche though as that stupid exclusivity deal is finally dead as of the end of last year. All in all this game is shaping up very nicely and appears even at this early stage to be deserving of its ‘Ultimate Driver Journey’ tagline. If they can nail all that they have already shown and keep the game running smoothly and stable with less of the bugs and problems that the first one occasionally suffered from, then they could very well smash the opposition.

  24. FH3: Playseat Car Pack Been a bit of a wait for the first Tuesday of the month to arrive as this is when a new slice of car pack DLC for Forza Horizon 3 tends to drop, and with this February having a whole 7 days before a Tuesday rolls around it has felt like this latest pack has taken its time a little, but it hasn't, it's actually right on time. The new Forza Horizon 3 Car Playseat Car Pack is out now and contains a collection of seven new vehicles, including the brand new Aston Martin DB11... aaaaaand a Vauxhall Corsa. A bit disappointing in a way this latest release in my opinion, considering what we saw being leaked with the whole unencrypted developer version mistake at the start of this year, but hey it’s a new car pack, and there will be players out there who will very much be feeling it. Forza Horizon 3 – Playseat Car Pack 2017 Aston Martin DB11 2016 Cadillac ATS-V 1985 Holden HDT VK Commodore Group A 2016 Honda Civic Type-R 1970 Honda S800 1990 Renault Alpine GTA Le Mans 2016 Vauxhall Corsa VXR [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="seven-post-image" ids="6585,6586,6587,6588,6589,6590,6591] The Playseat Car Pack is available to download now on PC (Windows 10), Xbox One and is free to those who own the Car Season Pass.

  25. Project CARS FREE Xbox One players will be able to grab a free copy of the Project CARS racing game through ‘Games with Gold’ from mid-February. Developed by Slightly Mad Studios, it will be the second of the titles that is given away each month as a reward to subscribers of the Xbox Live Gold membership, and will be available to download from the 16th February for active members. With the title approaching the 2-year mark since its release and the sequel starting to show itself in unofficial leaks – official info and media is planned for the upcoming months – it is ‘Marketing 101’ to get the name out there and try to bring in new players to the series, and one of the easiest ways to do this is to give the game away and get people playing it. Project CARS if you don’t know, was created through the means of a crowd-funding platform with all those who contributed being able to, in some way, influence the development as it took place. Not only this, there were also advisers such as old Top Gear ‘Stig’ Ben Collins on board along with racing driver and brother of F1 stalwart Lewis Hamilton, Nicolas Hamilton. Their input and feedback made for a very authentic handling simulation that is well praised by those who do not only drive day-to-day on normal roads, but also are paid to run laps around the circuits of the world. And the game must be doing something right if you have a professional racing driver such as René Rast using it to practice often and learn the circuits of the world. Just check out the video below and his channel to view how much he not only enjoys the game but also uses it to help in his real world racing duties. It’s difficult not to take this sort of backing seriously when you know that they have experience of how the real cars and tracks feel. Oh and if that isn't persuasive enough for you then don't forget that you also get to drive and race against the ‘turboduck’ RUF too. We can never thank our former staff member Ryzza5 enough for allowing us to use his perks to make this happen and to Milli who did the actual livery design for the car itself. Cheers to you both!
