Microsoft's Xbox One racing sim game Forza Motorsport 5 might be the highlight of the console's many planned launch titles, thanks in part to its impressive graphics. A few days ago, the company released the first direct gameplay video clip from the game, showing off what players will actually get to see while playing the title.
As posted on the Xbox YouTube channel, the nearly two minute clip shows the game's virtual version of the 2012 Pagani Huayra driving on the Bernese Alps track. This track was previously put in Forza Motorsport 4 for the Xbox 360 but Microsoft and developer Turn 10 Studios claim to have "completely rebuilt" the course for the Xbox One. The video is quite impressive, showing the car driving through the snowy mountain track at 60 fps and at 1080p resolution.
Microsoft has also released a second Forza Motorsport 5 video on YouTube. This clip shows Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb chatting with Turn 10's Dan Greenawalt as they discuss how Forza Motorsport 5 uses the new features in the Xbox One controller. In particular, Greenawalt talks about how the game uses the Impulse Triggers in the controller to give players a subtle but noticeable haptic feedback as they drive these virtual super-cars around Forza Motorsport 5's tracks.
