Xbox One Forza Motorsport 5 trailer released

  • By Rory Reid

Hell will probably freeze over before you get your hands on a real McLaren P1, so do yourself a favour and start saving your pennies for Forza Motorsport 5. The newly-confirmed Xbox One launch title will feature the hot new McLaren and its grandfather, the McLaren F1.

Xbox One, in case you've not yet heard the news, is the successor to the Xbox 360. The new console will launch with a handful of highly anticipated new games, with Forza Motorsport 5 the only title designed to tickle automotive fancies.

Forza Motorsport 5 is expected to ditch the large open worlds of its predecessor in favour of a return to circuits and semi-realistic racing. Little is known of the game, but you can get a flavour for the sort of action we can expect by watching the trailer below.

The clip features a highly cinematic race between the new McLaren P1 and the McLaren F1, the car that inspired it.

Xbox One Launch Titles

The Xbox One will will be released alongside several launch titles including Forza Motorsport 5, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Quantum Break, Battlefield 4, Destiny, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, Watch Dogs, Thief: Out of the Shadows, Ryse, Mass Effect 4, Halo 5, Fifa 14.

Xbox One Release Date

Microsoft has confirmed the Xbox One will go on sale this year. With a little luck it'll appear in time for the busy Thanksgiving shopping period in October, but we'd be surprised if it turned up after the Christmas shopping period.
