Since Forza 5 came with fewer cars than its predecessor, in a move not at all akin to progress, it is clear that the developer and publisher have thought this out as a DLC-centric game (that’s short for heavily-reliant on downloadable content). However, then can (and will) make us overlook this lucrative marketing ploy of theirs if the quality of content they release is high and our better judgment is clouded by it.
This week, everybody in the scene has been abuzz with talk about the IGN Car Pack that adds a total of ten very diverse rides including a 1957 Ferrari 250 California, Lambo Reventon, Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG or the deliciously curvy 1961 Maserati Tipo 61 Birdcage racing car.
The rest of the cars are: 2013 Caterham Superlight R500, 1977 Ford Escort RS1800, 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS 409, 2002 Ferrari 575M Maranello, 1969 Nissan Fairlady Z 432 and finally the 1984 Peugeot 205 T16.
Some players have already had a go at making these cars better, and one even made a drift car out of the classic Ferrari 250 – it is posted below, along with others in the same vein.
