The Xbox Wire post revealing the figure sensibly buried it behind a pun-free headline about the latest DLC
According to Microsoft, more than one-third of Xbox One owners have purchased Forza 5, making it “the best-selling racing game by console attach over the past decade”.
Players have driven over 653 million road miles; the equivalent of circling the planet 49,223 times. They’ve participated in 94 million races to total over 8 million hours of gameplay.
Drivatars have appeared in over 1 billion races, and players have created over 66 million individual design layers with the custom livery tools.
In celebration of the sales milestone, Turn 10 Studios has released the Road America track as a free DLC pack. It will be available in all event types in Career mode, as well as Rivals Mode and multiplayer. The track boasts four alternate ribbons for the first time in the core series’s history.
There’s also a new premikum DLC pack out, the Road America Booster Pack. It includes five new cars – the 2006 #2 Audi Sport North America R8, 1995 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1, 1968 Ferrari 365 GTB/4, 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 and the 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series.
