Fulgore closes out season one of Killer Instinct

Forza Motorsport 5 gets another free track tomorrow photo
Forza Motorsport 5 gets another free track tomorrow
by Jordan Devore

Additional tracks for Forza Motorsport 5 is a very good thing indeed, I think we can all agree. Especially when they're delivered as free DLC. Like the Road America track before it, Turn 10 is giving away another course, southern California's Long Beach Circuit, starting tomorrow.

As per usual with add-on tracks, Long Beach will be playable across all of Forza 5's modes. There's also a Long Beach Booster Pack containing five new vehicles on the way, although this is unsurprisingly only free for Car Pass owners. Those cars are: the 1977 Ford Coyote Gilmore77, the 1974 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale, the 1956 Jaguar D-Type, the 1998 Mercedes-Benz AMG Mercedes CLK GTR, and the 1971 Ferrari #2 Ferrari Automobili 312 P.

Forza 5 gets free Road America track today
by Jordan Devore

It's a pleasant sight indeed to see "Forza Motorsport 5 DLC" and "free" in the same sentence.

The game, which one in three Xbox One owners have picked up, according to Microsoft, is getting a free track based on Road America today. Beyond the usual, this Wisconsin course presents four alternate ribbons "that will test the limits of each and every player."

Forza 5 Season Pass owners are getting a little something extra in the form of the five-car Road America Booster Pack, also out today. It includes the 2006 #2 Audi Sport North America R8, 1995 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1, 1968 Ferrari 365 GTB/4, 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1, and the 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series.
