Forza Motorsport 3 is the definitive racing game. All 400-plus cars in the game have been built with more than 10 times the amount of polygons as Forza Motorsport 2. This includes painstakingly researched cockpits and interiors for every vehicle. But realism isn’t just about pretty graphics. Turn 10 takes realism to new heights, with the most advanced physics model, artificial intelligence and damage calculations.
Forza Motorsport 3 rises above the distinction between simulation and arcade games. Using a myriad of cutting-edge driving and gameplay assists such as auto-braking, game play rewind and auto-tuning, Forza 3 delivers an experience where everyone can have fun behind the wheel, regardless of your skill and dexterity. Whether you’re a newcomer or a seasoned racing game pro, Forza Motorsport 3 caters to how you drive and evolves with you over time as your skills increase.
400 cars and 100 tracks will be featured in Forza Motorsport 3. The garage roster includes 30 Ferraris, 28 iconic Porsches, as well as cars not previously available in any racing game, such as the new Aston Martin DBS, Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR, and the 2009 Acura ARX ALMS race car. Forza Motorsport 3 players will be the first to fully paint, customize, and tune these incredible cars and more.
On launch day, that list will grow even larger with the release of a free Game Add-on car and track pack, available exclusively by way of a one-time-use token card included in every new copy of Forza Motorsport 3. To celebrate these announcements, the team has also released the game’s official online trailer, featuring never-before-seen gameplay footage.
Additionally, the Motorsports Legends Car Pack gives players another great reason to be excited about picking up Forza Motorsport 3 on launch day, delivering 10 classic race cars and roadsters, on top of two extra tracks: the brand new Benchmark High Speed Ring and the returning circuit Sidewinder Proving Grounds.
The Benchmark High Speed Ring is best described as an old airfield and hangar converted into a race track and automotive playground, perfect for all manner of creative Forza Motorsport hoonage and multiplayer mayhem. The track is characterized by 3.96 miles of rough surfaces and huge open areas, featuring a massive oval, an 8-lane drag strip, and an airplane hangar that players can drive (or drift) through.
The free Motorsports Legends Car Pack includes these 10 cars hand picked by Turn 10:
· ’65 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA
· ’64 Aston Martin DB5 Vantage
· ’81 BMW M1
· ’60 Chevrolet Corvette
