Adding weather and night racing to Forza Motorsport 5 not just a matter of a patch
Dan Greenawalt, boss at Turn 10 has been talking a lot lately about Forza 5 and one of the things he has been discussing is the possibility of adding weather and night racing to the game.
Greenawalt explained that the addition of weather effects and night racing would be no mean undertaking probably requiring major surgery to get up and running.
The simplest of the game's tracks took around nine months to build and that was because it was an updated version of a track from a previous game.
“To build a new track that would work at night and in wet would mean a bespoke track. Everything we build is bespoke," Greenawalt explained. "If we wanted to make one of those tracks work with the added particles or projected shadows, and of course adding the physics to do something like night and wet, it means re-engaging those tracks. I’m not trying to give an excuse, I’m trying to give context as to why this is an order of magnitude higher than something like Drag and Tag, and other things we’re looking at from the community.”
In the meantime a new patch is on its way adding drag racing and Tag mode as well as rebalancing the game's economy to make the better cars more accessible.
