    New game developed by T10 and Playground games. Open world, Forza physics.

    Probably gonna be around 200 cars +around 70 DLC cars over the year. When you remove all the race cars and shit cars, nearly 300 is a ton, especially for an open world game.

    This is the best preview video I've found. Only problem is that he keeps a bunch of the assists on; which T10 says is bad if you want it to feel just like FM4. Either way, lots of gameplay, including the night driving. Can't wait!

    Oct 23rd, sir!

    I pre-ordered the Limited Collector's Edition months ago. VIP status, which means gift cars and discounts. 5 VIP Cars (Audi R8 GT Spyder, Pagani Huayra, Koenigsegg Agera, RUF RT 12 R, Lamborghini Sesto Elemento). Day 1 DLC car pack.

    There will also be a DLC Season Pass, which includes 6 car packs over 6 months and some sort of expansion pack on December 18th. No idea what the expansion will be, just know it's not cars. Map expansion? Hope so, even though the map looks massive as is!

    Different stores give out different pre-order cars too. Game Stop-Ferrari 458, Amazon-Aston Martin Virage, Best Buy-Mercedes SLS. They all give a code for the 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 in FM4 as well.

    I pre-ordered from Game Stop. Thing is, they revealed the 458 Spider recently... so, I won't care too much about the coupe haha. I suspect we'll get the SLS Roadster and Virage Volante as well.

    Sp excited about matte paint and daytime running lights!

    Probably the same but at a lower frame rate to compensate for the open world/night and day cycle.


    Remember reading somewhere it was 30fps compared to F4's 60fps.

    That is correct. They say the damage model is better, probably because they replaced actual damage with visual damage; gave them more space.

    The night racing looks great. Absolutely love how realistic the headlights are. When the 2013 Viper's outshine the old Audi in front of it? Phenomenal...

    I just hope the roads actually are entertaining to drive on. The map certainly seems HUGE with many twisty roads so we'll see.



    Also hope the 30fps doesn't ruin it for me, I always thought the FM replays were weird with the reduced framerates. Perhaps that was because I'd just raced at 60fps before watching the replay.

    "that left turn was highly illegal, you cannot turn left from the right lane and you can't floor it mid-corner"

    "bitch, that is called hitting the apex"

    Not without the $50 Season Pass! :rofl: I was lol'ing at all the whiners over on the FM forum, sweet jesus! :ugh: If you make $6/hr and don't want to save up your pennies to swing the DLC, get over yourself! :rofl: I'm not saying I agree that it's priced "fairly" (IMO it's still a bit high for what they're giving you compared to FM4 Season Pass), but it's also not something I'm exactly losing sleep over. ;) I'm hoping they reduce the price around Christmas again like they did with FM4, and if they do that I'll buy it for sure, but I am curious what the expansion will include. :D All of that being said, I don't regret pre-ordering the LCE and can't wait for next Tuesday so I can finally play the demo! :hbang:

    36 cars, 5 more exclusives (i think, so 41), and whatever the expansion is. I'm gonna buy it all regardless, so why not save some money lol.

    I think I read somewhere that the expansion will be "more than just cars".... bikes? More roads? The mountains appear to need a road.
