Forza Motorsport 5 arriving with enhanced 'human' AI

Microsoft used its Xbox One press conference to talk about its enhanced 'drivatar' system, for Forza Motorsport 5 on Xbox One, in which the game creates a simulated version of the player to race against friends that "doesn't drive like AI, but like people".

Developer Turn 10's Don Greenawalt said that Xbox One and cloud technology had allowed the company to improve its system of creating AI competitors. He said, "Now you never race alone". He added that the AI system "learns ro recreate your speed and style, how you attack corners, where you cut and where you play dirty. It's not about AI, it's about real human behavior."

Microsoft also confirmed that McLaren's P1 super-car will be included within the game, presenting one of the rare cars on-stage.

The fifth game in Turn 10's Forza series follows a bi-annual tradition stretching back to the original game's launch on Xbox in 2005. Last year. Microsoft released an open-world arcade-racer spin-off Forza Horizon, though this release is clearly a return to hard-core simulation gameplay.

Forza Motorsport 5 was unveiled at Microsoft's Redmond, WA Xbox One event on May 21, featuring a race between two McLaren sports cars through the streets of Prague. A short in-game teaser trailer was released last week.
