120 new cars?
24 online grid?

Don't know how accurate the translation is or whether this is true at all.

Link racing games: Whether you are a beginner or experienced pilot, Forza Motorsport 5 is for you! Hundreds of cars reproduced to perfection, more than 120 new available from the start. Change in your garage and choose to ride on the legendary circuit or in the heart of cities around the world.

A unique multiplayer experience: With 24 drivers for the first time on the same course online, do yourself a name among the gaming communities. The matchmaking system Smart Match offers a whole new multiplayer experience, fast and competitive, perfectly suited to your skills and style. Finally for the first time, Forza5 benefit from dedicated servers.

"Hundreds of cars" Bombshell.

Joking aside. That is such a useless statement. It could mean as little as 200 or as big as 900 lol.

Power of the cloud, clearly. Definitely dedicated servers in play here.

What does it mean 120 new cars? Are they pulling a GT5 and having "premium" and "standard" cars pulled from older games?

But if 24 player online races were true, then wouldn't Dan have been screaming this from the rooftops in his recent PR interviews?

Seems like too big of a feature to completely slip his mind during all those recent interviews.

I meant consoles! Of course it's been already done on PC.

Anyways, that's awesome news. I wonder if its using the cloud for that kind of stuff.

According to B, the number hasn't been finalized. This was months back.
Could indeed be set now..

120 cars total would be fine with me, let alone hundreds. I only drive about 10 or so and stick with an R1 once I get it and it's allowed in a race. I'll take hundreds of tracks, though.

Sounds like new additions to the franchise. Forza 4 models are nothing like GT5 PS2 models.

Could be a number of reasons why - Perhaps they're still tinkering around with the numbers. There's a still a few months to launch... not that big of a jump to think that this hasn't been set in stone yet.

Pretty much this.

And 120 "new cars" generally means new to the series.

It would be cool if true though.

Although I imagine it would be track-specific. Because 24 cars on thin, small tracks like Amalfi Coast would be pure mayhem.

I don't like sim racers but I am interested to see how the online part of Forza works in real life as an indication for others games.

24 players is a good start certainly.

All 650 (?) cars in the franchise are modeled with 350.000 / 500.000 polys detail, which is as high or better than GT5 premiums, so definitely not a premium/standard situation here.

Guessing dedicated mp servers make this possible, 24 is a lot of connections for some dude's xbox to handle via p2p. Hope this is confirmed.

i'd imagine something like this isnt locked down till closer to the end, especially being this is on new hardware.

not sure if you are joking but both upclocks likely played a (small) role in this. maybe it was just enough to make it stable 60?

Just cars that T10 deem necessary to remodel so mostly ones carried over from FM1/2 (these cars were upscaled to suit FM3/4 but have some inaccuracies).

It might be track-specific in single-player, but I think the number is largely focused on multiplayer grid sizes, where you cant limit numbers based on the track for obvious practical reasons.

I bet they wont even think about lengthening the matchmaking races, though.

24 players with 3 laps is positively stupid and its a shame that's what 90% of players will flock to.

Aren't they all visible and interactive in autovista? Means they had to rework pretty much all of them.

also, with 24 cars, qualifying session start getting rather important.

would be nice to have "# of laps" as an option under difficulty before each race. to incentivise people to race with more you'd earn more credits equivalent to the increase in time invested.

True, I think there were only about 30 or so cars available for Autovista in F4 so I would think they would need to go back to most of the cars if they are indeed all available this time.

They certainly had to do at least a little work on every car. I guess those 120 are built from absolutely nothing (being new).

I don't expect as many cars in Forza 5, but I'm ok with that if they're delivering all these awesome new tracks and EVERY car is (Auto)Forzavista quality.

I never understood why these racing sims (not just Forza) need so many cars. I'd love to see the stats on which cars are actually used.
