Forza Motorsports 5: Honda Legends Car Pack

Forza Motorsports 5 has been taking a hammering from the press, fans, and former fans for the latest installment in the series. The general consenses is it’s good, but incomplete and that has ruffled some feathers. To make matters worse it seems T10 just can’t seem to get their house in order with bungled dlc releases, lack luster car packs, and tons of bugs that haven’t been fixed. However T10 does seem to be trying to right the ship. Today brings another DLC pack a big content update and the Honda Legends Pack. All of which are good news.

This is all big happy news. What you get with the Honda pack is three cars for FREE! The 1984 Honda Civic CRX Mugen, the 1994 Honda Prelude SI, and the 2014 Honda Civic SI. All very cool welcome additions to the game. I take this as a bit of an act of contrition by T10 to it’s loyal fans. Many of whom are feeling pretty scorned as of late. Let’s hope this is a step in the right direction for everyone leading to more updates and a better fan/dev relationship heading into FM6 which should debut in 2015.

Other updates in today’s pack include:
Multiplayer replays
aero damage now fixed in the pits
working drag racing tree. (don’t confuse this for a realistic drag mode. It’s not)

Today is a good day for the Forza community with all those welcome updates. Hit the jump for the Honda pack video.
