Free DLC Track Released For ‘Forza 5′

By: Sean Patterson - February 18, 2014

Forza Motorsport 5 was one of the most popular launch exclusives for the Xbox One, but was not without its critics. At launch the game was filthy with in-your-face microtransactions, offering elite vehicle unlocks for upwards of $100. Turn 10 Studios has since taken a do-over on the Forza 5 economy, though the game still sports less expensive microtransaction unlocks.

The game also sports some pretty funny crowd graphics.

For all its flaws, though, Forza 5 is still one of the only Xbox One games to run at 60 fps in a 1080p resolution, making it a clear contender for early Xbox One adopters’ dollars. Now Microsoft is sweetening the deal with a little more content – and for free.

Microsoft today released a new, free DLC track for Forza 5. The track is based on the famous Road America in Wisconsin. The track will be automatically added to career events and will feature alternate ribbons.

Of course, Microsoft isn’t giving away everything Forza 5-related today. Along with the free track the publisher is also offering a “Road America Booster Pack” featuring five new cars free only to those who are members of the game’s “Car Pass.”

    Um it’s a Racing RPG basically, meaning you have to grind to get money to buy cars and upgrades. It’s kind of been that way since the first Grand Turismo. The fact these Generation Glee whiners feel entitled to have the fast car in the game the second they start playing only shows what pieces of garbage they are.

    • Fuck Michael Hunt

      Tell us how you really feel! Sounds like someone has shined one too many “Glee Generation” shoe and is a little, shall we say, bitter? Shut your old ass up and go back to being depressed, alone, and living off my tax dollars.
