If you’ve ever wanted to have a go in the reasonably priced car, or just sit behind the wheel of one of Top Gear’s test cars and set a lap that would make The Stig quiver in fear, soon you’ll get a chance to do so – of sorts – with the Xbox One release, as Forza Motorsport 5, will have a drivatar “digital Stig,” that you can go head to head with.
“Yes, Internet, making his debut in Forza Motorsport 5 is the virtual version of our tame racing driver — though this one’s slightly different. He — or it — is allegedly beatable,” reads the description on the latest Top Gear video. “But only if you’re really good. That means you lucky folks who plan on snapping up the shiny new Xbox One and Forza 5 next month will be among the planet’s first to take him on.”[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6u0ioMnWS4′]
You’ll be able to test your skills against The Stig on the Top Gear test track, featuring commentary from the show’s three presenters. There will also be a few races inspired by the show’s special events “among other things.”
Forza Motorsport will be released on the Xbox One global launch day, 22nd November.
KitGuru Says: Stig and Forza aside, that Holden used in the video is a bit of a beast, no?
