Tanner Foust, Forza Motorsport and Xbox One will be teaming up for the 2014 season as the rallycross driver and TV presenter takes on the Red Bull Global Rallycross season in search of his third championship title.
“I’m excited to be working with Forza,” said Foust. “I play racing games in the off-season to keep myself sharp and Forza Motorsport has been a part of my life since its first release on Xbox.”
Forza Motorsport developers Turn 10 will be releasing a special edition Tanner Foust Racing-inspired version of the 2010 Volkswagen Golf R to Forza Motorsport 5 players on Xbox One to celebrate the partnership. The Golf R will feature a livery inspired by Foust’s 2014 Rockstar Energy Volkswagen and be uniquely tuned.
“The realism of Forza Motorsport on Xbox One is truly unprecedented,” said Foust. “I am thrilled to give fans the chance to experience my inspired car in the game. The visuals and physics are as real as it gets without literally getting behind the wheel.”
Foust is no stranger to the Forza franchise and has been involved in one way or another since Forza Motorsport 4 and recently too pate in the award-winning Forza FilmSpeed project.
“The partnership between Forza Motorsport and Tanner Foust is one we’re extremely excited about,” said Alan Hartman, General Manager at Turn 10 Studios, the creators of Forza Motorsport. “Partnering with a driver of Tanner’s ability is a natural extension for the Forza brand, which curates the best tracks, the best vehicles, and the best racing. Tanner is one of the world’s most celebrated drivers, and our fans will be excited to see him be an ambassador for the Forza brand.”
The car download requires an Xbox One videogame console coupled with an Xbox Live account and the game Forza Motorsport 5, all sold separately. More information can be found at http://ForzaMotorsport.net.
