Normally new car announcements for video games are hardly worth writing about — particularly for me, a man with no interest in cars or racing games — but after years of wrangling, it looks as though the Porsche is finally coming to the Forza Motorsport series.
So what was the delay? Apparently there were licensing issues surrounding the Porsche, but now an upcoming piece of DLC will feature 30 new Porsche cars for afficiendos to get all sploongy about.
It’s a pretty extensive update — in addition to the cars themselves, 20 Porsche centric events are being added to the game. Once downloaded players can expect to see Porsches hooning around in other events as well.
“The upcoming Porsche Expansion Pack for Forza Motorsport 4 is great news for racing fans,” said Turn 10 Creative Director Dan Greenawalt, “and I’m pleased that we’ve been able to work closely with EA on an agreement that brings one of the world’s most iconic automotive brands to Forza 4.”
I’m assuming this of interest to car people, but I wouldn’t know. I still drive a Hyundai Excel. And that doesn’t embarrass me.
