Forza Motorsport 5 Gets Free Long Beach Circuit TrackBy: Zach Walton - April 9, 2014
Forza Motorsport 5 has been supported more than any other Xbox One launch game and for good reason. It’s easily one of the best of the bunch and was even included with Xbox One consoles for a time. With its latest content update, the developers at Turn 10 Studios are adding a legendary race circuit to the game.
Turn 10 Studios announced today that the Long Beach circuit will be coming to Forza Motorsport 5 as part of a larger update scheduled to hit tomorrow. The developers note that this is the first time the circuit has been in a Forza game. They went above and beyond the call of duty with recreating the circuit by including all of its forms:
The full eleven-turn, 1.97-mile course, home to this weekend’s 40th running of the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, is included, as well as two alternate ribbons: the slightly shorter East Loop and the half-mile West Loop, both of which are perfect for drifting or pushing your technical driving skills to their limits.
The developers also note that the Long Beach circuit has been worked into every facet of the game experience:
Like all track add-on content for Forza Motorsport 5, Long Beach has been fully integrated into every mode of the game. Once you download the content update, the Long Beach circuit becomes part of your Forza Motorsport 5 world. You’ll find brand new events in Career mode, new Rivals and multiplayer lobbies to challenge your friends, and more.

As an added bonus, here’s IndyCar Driver Josef Newgarden taking on the virtual version of the Long Beach circuit in Forza Motorsport 5:
