Absent since the first game, Turn 10 is bringing back the Drivatar for Forza 5. Now syncing up with the cloud, you will be able to play against your friends based on how they race even when they’re not online.
The Drivatar was a feature in the first Forza Motorsport and allowed players to create a digital profile of how they race in-game. This allowed players to race against themselves (in a way) and allowed them to simulate races based on how they would (theoretically) perform on a track. With Xbox One’s increased power (a substantial leap over the original Xbox) and the cloud, the simulation will be able to be more realistic and precise. It’s exciting to see the return of this feature and how it will expand the possibilities of what can be done in gaming.
