Driving a yellow Lamborghini along the Stelvio pass as you enjoy the views through your Randolph Engineering sunglasses. A recurring dream that you keep going back to, at will. It makes you want to sleep some more as the alarm clock runs riot and your boss at work wonders why the entire world conspires to obstruct you on your way to work. Video games these days have reached such an advanced level, it makes you live another life, one that the real world and your real boss dismisses as unrealistic.
Microsoft’s Turn 10 Studios, the creators of the iconic Forza Motorsport racing game franchise, have chosen the Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4, as the hero car for Forza Horizon 2, the studio’s latest racing game. Indeed, the latest chapter in the Forza Motorsport open road – spinoff revolves around the descendant of the Gallardo.
Set in beautiful Southern Europe, the videogame provides all the thrills of taking the new super sport car’s Instinctive Technology for a spin around Mediterranean landscapes, with weather, Drivatars (Xbox One’s cloud-based racers that replicate the behaviors of friends and strangers to drive like real people) and endless routes. And that’s just the start of it – this new game has an almost unimaginable level of detail, including a complete view of the passenger compartment. This includes the original interior, working power windows and headlights, and the luxury super sports car can even be fully customized, from the color right down to the technical specifications.
Forza Horizon 2, coming exclusively to Xbox One and Xbox 360 – this fall, it will offer stunning 1080p resolution graphics at 30 fps. Once behind the wheel, there will be no experience to match it in terms of open-world racing, with the stunning visual impact even more spectacular in nighttime scenes.
As we wait for the one of the most exciting racing game of the year to launch, I’m still trying hard explaining, how the tyres on my vehicle manage to find a nail only on the route i take to work.
