Forza 5 to include “Driveatar” which will learn how players race

Monday, 10th June 2013 18:09 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Turn 10 Studios came on stage to discuss Forza 5 to talk about the cloud – and the end of AI. Talking about Drive-atar, instead of Avatar. Opponents don’t dive like AI, but real people. It will learn how you race. It will race for you in the cloud even when you are not playing. The studio went on to show a new trailer featuring all in-game footage. Shots are below.

Here’s the list of game features:

Features:
Always racing, always adapting
• Never race alone. By learning how you and your friends drive, the power of the cloud delivers real human behavior. Drivatar technology creates an ever-evolving network of opponents who are always ready to race. Real tendencies, real mistakes, real victories.
• Rivals everywhere. Every corner a new challenge, every event a new chance to win. Compete against your friends’ top times in rotating challenges for in-game credits and bragging rights.
• Fast and fair multiplayer. With Smart Match matchmaking and Xbox Live dedicated servers, experience epic, fast and competitive multiplayer perfectly suited to your skill and style.
• Curated customization. The power of the cloud means the best custom content now finds you. With a system that learns your preferred cars and paint schemes, seamlessly experience the most compelling user-generated content available.
• Your ever-growing garage. Your automotive journey continues long after launch.
Download, drive and explore the most anticipated new cars in the world, months before they hit the showrooms, then challenge your friends in continuously updated online race events.

As real as it gets
• Unprecedented visual realism. The definitive next-generation graphics engine delivers stunningly realistic visuals in 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second.
• Leading simulation. Racing’s leading simulation engine, developed for Xbox One in
conjunction with Calspan and the world’s top automotive manufacturers, makes driving easy to learn and rewarding to master.
• Dynamic damage. High-resolution damage modeling shows every bump and scrape. Roads accumulate tire rubber and debris. Racing has consequences; damage can stop you in your tracks.
• Astonishing detail. A new graphics engine created exclusively for Xbox One delivers physically based material rendering that re-creates the real-life characteristics of thousands of unique materials. Surfaces such as metal, glass, leather, rubber and concrete look real enough to touch.
• Living busy worlds. Racing comes alive with fans crowding the walls, helicopters circling overhead and the vibrant hum and spectacle of race day. Your ultimate car fantasy
• Forzavista. Truly feel what it’s like to own the world’s most exclusive cars in an experience that brings you closer than ever to the history, craftsmanship and potential of every car in the game.
• Hundreds of next-generation cars. The most diverse lineup of vehicles ever seen in a “Forza Motorsport” game: from classic sports cars to modern tuners, purpose-built racers to extreme exotics and, for the first time in “Forza Motorsport,” open-wheel race cars.
• Unique careers. Take your favorite cars through unique careers highlighting their greatest strengths, their most notorious rivals and their place in motorsport history.
• Laser-scanned tracks. Drive the world’s most legendary race circuits and exotic road courses, captured with millimeter accuracy.
• “Top Gear” exclusives. The world’s biggest automotive TV show teams up with the most innovative racing game yet. Take on Stig’s Digital Cousin in unique car challenges, turn a Power Lap on the Top Gear Test Track, and hear show hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May share their distinctive automotive insights throughout the game.

    Now this is how you do online gaming.
    Asynchronous multiplayer done right. Racing other people without actually racing other people.

    There’d be no need for leaderboards anymore.

    Yeah. This is what I call a next gen idea.

    Driving AI has been horribly predictable since pretty much the first racer.

    If they can make me feel like I’m racing online even when I’m not, the races should be a whole lot more interesting.

    This game is SERIOUSLY testing my resolve not to buy the Bone. And then they go and announce a new HALO. Dammit.

    Oh and by the way Kaz, wake up and take note. This is how you advance a driving franchise.
