Here’s A Reason To Care About Forza 6: It’s Got Bathurst And V8’s

Most Australians ask the same question every time a “serious” racing game comes out. “Does it have Bathurst,” the cry goes, before being summarily rejected.

Not this time.

Microsoft has announced the one thing that will get the hearts of most motorheads racing: Bathurst will be making an appearance in this year’s Forza 6 when it launches on September 15.

As an added bonus, Forza 6 will come with all 10 cars from this year’s V8 Supercar series with current liveries as well. Mark Skaife, a five-time V8 Supercar championship himself, will also be providing a voice-over for the game.

It’s nice to know that at least someone has finally delivered someone is continuing to support the inclusion of V8s in modern racers.

Below you can see shots of the Holden, Mercedes, Volvo and Ford cars in the game, along with the Nissan which might be sacrilege to some people. But it’s there in real life, so sorry about that.

Update: The previous Forza, as many pointed out, did have Bathurst and one V8 supercar. Apologies all and thanks for the feedback.
