Forza 5 “configurable” enough for monthly DLC

Friday, 19th July 2013 02:47 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Turn 10 Studios could add as many as ten new DLC vehicles per month to Forza 5.

“The game is very configurable. So we can add new tools and road locales and regions for like a van class,” Forza 5 game director Dan Greenawalt told OXM.

“Being able to do monthly cars allows us to do wild cards like the transit van,” he added.

“And it’s not like it was a strategy like ‘let’s add wild things later’ – it just happens. We get interest in it, we talk as a team. The nice thing is the game is so configurable that we can add things at will. We can add ten cars a month, just constantly releasing stuff, and the game will rearrange itself.”

Greenawalt said Forza’s diversity is one of its strengths.

“We have incredible depth across multiple axes. We have the depth of our garage diversity – we do traditionally have SUVs, cars, trucks, racecars, all sorts,” he said.

“We have the diversity in manufacturers – it’s not like we have 75 of some given manufacturer, we tend to really spread our bed across a lot of manufacturers. And we have a diversity of depth across time, because we do monthly updates of cars, because the car industry is always changing.”

Forza Motorsport 5 is headed to Xbox One and is expected as a launch title.

    I guess we can look forward to many conspicuous gaps in the car lineup this time too? I’m not getting the console this time around, but while I love the Forza games, in 4 I did often see a car was DLC in only and say “oh, come on! That’s basic! It should be in any racing game!” Forza seems to carry a unique mix of realism and DLC mania.
