Forza Motorsport 5, which will be launched alongside the Xbox One later this year will feature more new cars and advanced rumble features.
Forza Motorsport 5 To Feature New “Impulse Trigger Technology”
Turn 10 have always been looking for ways to make their Forza series more realistic and authentic. Their latest attempt is to improve player feedback with new Impulse Trigger technology.
This technology will allow Turn 10 to program triggers individually and provide players more advanced feedback and information than before.
The increased level of feedback will allow developers to simulate the feeling of ABS, accelerations and even help train the player not to oversteer and when to brake.
It is certainly a unique way to provide this new feedback and while serious Forza players may scoff at playing the game with anything other than a wheel the vast majority will still be using gamepads. These new features should go a long way in making playing with a gamepad more authentic.

Forza 5 To Make Full Use Of Xbox One Power
Turn 10 have also revealed that due to their close relationship with Microsoft the game will be utilize 100% of the Xbox Ones resources. They believe that with experience they will be able to get even more out of the new system in the future also.
Turn 10 boss Da Greenawalt has been recently quoted alluding to this partnership.
“Trying to be there at launch means we’re shipping our game at the same time the console is shipping, and it requires that kind of hand-holding between their team and our team. So in many ways, we’re testing their OS, we’re testing their architecture every day, so it’s an incredible partnership.”
“It’s funny, because I hear it a lot: ‘are you using the hardware?’ The truth is, you always use 100% of the hardware. You just do, but it’s a question of whether or not you’re using it efficiently, and so that’s what happens over a course of years.”
Forza Motorsport 5 will be launching alongside the Xbox One on November 22.
