CNET News Video: Forza Motorsport 5: Xbox One

6:01 /

Forza Motorsport 5 promises a more realistic driving experience with the creation of its AI "Drivatars."

-McLaren, it's a name that every automobile enthusiast knows, and if you'll indulge us for a moment, we'll explain why. McLaren is the most successful team in Formula 1 history. It would take days to describe their decades of revolutionary advancements. From modified air intakes to carbon fiber monocoques to the chimney coolant system. McLaren was the first team to win Formula One, Can-Am, the Indie 500, and Le Monde. The newest feat of engineering has technology so advanced it's beyond Formula One regulations. As of today, there are only 2 of them on the planet which means very few people can experience the feeling of driving them, but thankfully there's another racing team with a legacy of innovation that is also dedicated to pushing the boundaries, and that team is bringing the future to everyone. Welcome to a new generation. -Ladies and gentlemen, from Turn 10 Studios, Dan Greenawalt. -Together with McLaren, we believe in innovation. We believe in pushing boundaries. Like this McLaren P1, Forza Motorsport 5 signals the beginning of a new era, one that delivers the real world in all its startling clarity. What you see behind me is Forza Motorsport 5 running on Xbox One. The new generation is about more than Polycount and texture resolution. With the power of Xbox One, we've transcended. The new generation is about capturing the details that make our world human and real, the play of light on a perfect coat of paint, the feel hence its leather and brushed aluminum, the history written on the scratched rotors and worn concrete. This is air you can taste and texture you can feel, but the new generation is about more than even the power inside the box. True innovation is unlocked through its connection to Xbox Live. Using the near-limitless power of Cloud processing, creators are now able to shatter your expectations. In Forza 5, this means the end of A.I., more human, more intelligent. Now you have a learning agent in the Cloud, a Drivatar. Let's head to the track to see Drivatar in action. Watch the opponents in this race. They don't drive like A.I. They drive like people and every time you play whether you're in multiplayer or in career your Drivatar learns from how you race. Let me initiate my personal Drivatar so you can see exactly how it thinks. By logging and processing your decisions in the Cloud, your Drivatar learns to recreate your speed and style even on tracks and in cars you've never raced. He learns how you attack the corners and where you cut. He learns how you use the car, how you drive in traffic and where you play dirty. While you're at your work or school, your Drivatar races against the world, and when you log in again you earn credits for your Drivatar's work. Now you never race alone. Your opponents or your friends and your family racing in their customized cars even when they aren't available to play, an ever evolving network of well-matched opponents every time you race. This is not about creating better racing A.I. It's about delivering real human behavior, real reactions, real mistakes, real victories. Using the power of Xbox One, the Cloud and Xbox Live Forza Motorsport 5 will redefine the expectations of racing fans and gamers alike. Now let's take a look at the world premiere of our latest trailer featuring all in-game footage. Thank you.
