Forza Motorsport 5 Top Gear DLC released
Race The Stig's digital cousin, and get your DLC cars without in-game cost
TV show Top Gear and Forza Motorsport 5 have teamed up to deliver a new car pack for the Xbox One racing title.
The Top Gear Car Pack (included as part of the Forza Motorsport 5 Car Pass) is available now for $9.99USD. Each new car can also be individually purchased, a la carte, via the Xbox Live marketplace. The cars included are 1966 Chaparral #66 2E, 2013 Holden #10 Xbox Racing Team Commodore VF, 2013 Audi RS4 Avant, 1980 Renault 5 Turbo, 1999 Lotus Elise Sport, 2011 Ford Transit SuperSportVan, 1998 Nissan R390, 2006 HUMMER H1 Alpha, 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STi, and 2013 Lexus GS350 F Sport.
Beginning April 1, Forza players will have the chance to pit their driving skills against The Stig’s “Digital Cousin” in a new Rivals event set on the Bathurst Circuit at Mount Panorama, Australia. Upon successfully completing this Rivals event, all participants will receive an in-game credit reward. Additional prizes will be awarded to those who finish in the Top 10, including a special Stig Prize Pack from Top Gear for the top winner.
Finally, as of today, players who have purchased DLC cars in Forza Motorsport 5 can add those cars to their Forza 5 garage immediately, at no additional in-game cost. And, moving forward, when you buy a Season Pass, a DLC car pack, or a single DLC car, you will be granted the one-time free addition of each car to your Forza 5 garage, without needing to purchase them with in-game credits or tokens. Previously, players who bought DLC cars with real cash also still had to purchase them with in-game tokens to actually add to their collection.
Forza Motorsport 5 launched exclusively alongside the Xbox One last November.
