Turn 10 Studios has unveiled a new video offering the first ever direct-feed gameplay footage of Forza Motorsport 5 on the Xbox One.

Featuring the 2012 Pagani Huayra racing the Bernese Alps circuit amidst the snowy peaks, the direct-feed footage is shown in Full 1080p HD at 60fps.

The Bernese Alps circuit was introduced with Forza 4, but has been rebuilt for Forza 5 on the Xbox One to showcase the elevation changes in the track and make the most of the new graphics engine for the game.

Take 10 Studios also announced that the Silverstone Circuit will be making its reappearance in Forza 5, having been rebuilt for the Xbox One game to include the track layout introduced in 2010.

“Known as the ‘home of British racing’, the Silverstone Circuit is 3.6 miles long and features 18 corners ranging from high-speed sweepers such as Woodcote to intricate series like the Maggotts and Becketts corners,” explains Microsoft. “The Silverstone Circuit was laser-scanned during development to provide the most accurate rendering of the circuit to be found in any racing game.”

Earlier this year, Polyphony announced that Gran Turismo 6 for the PS3 would also feature the Silverstone Circuit.

Forza 5 will feature hundreds of drivable cars that will appear during the eight leagues within the new career mode. Each league covers a different genre of vehicle, ranging from vintage to supercar, with a special introduction and commentary provided by Top Gear hosts James May, Richard Hammond and Jeremy Clarkson for each set of events.

Rather than progressing from low-performance cars to the super-charged, players will be able to enter the events in whichever order they please, as long as they have a car that fits the requirements of the league.

Available to pre-order now, Forza 5 will be a launch title for the Xbox One when it is released in the UK on November 22.

no different to any other forza title

I am inclined to agree. Okay, it looks pretty (in a clinical, cold way) but not profoundly different, or better than any recent version.

here's the 1080 version:


it looks no different to gt on the ps3 running at 1080

@ torjs99: The thing is, I don't know why I feel a bit 'Meh' about it...Gaming fatigue? Nothing original? No giant leap? I should be excited by this, given I do enjoy Forza but I'm just not.
Every time I see Watch Dogs, well, that's a different story...

They should have shown it from the cockpit view it always looks better and more realistic.

It looks a lot better than GT on PS3.

Download a proper version here. http://www.gamersyde.com/downl...
Video is only 30fps but the image quality is way better than the youtube clip, and mentally better than the poor version on here. Why say its 60fps and 1080p then put such a poor video up?

i agree. the lack off road animation is very troubling for a next gen title. it looks like they have had to remove everything but the car to get it to run at 1080

Thanks for the link Noel.

Unfortunately as new generations of consoles come along, the difference between them isn't as obvious. It's coming down to smaller things, or being able to show more items on screen at the same time.

I also think it a shame that the focus with new consoles is an obsession with showing off new graphic capabilities, and less about gameplay improvements and longevity.
