Upcoming Xbox One exclusive Forza Motorsport 5 will feature a digital recreation of Mount Panorama, Microsoft has announced.
The Bathurst track was created using cutting-edge technology like laser-scanning and the game's new materials-based graphics engine, said Turn 10 creative director Dan Greenawalt.
“We can now precisely reproduce the characteristics of every corner, straight and detail to sub-centimetre accuracy; from the narrow twists and turns of the Esses, to the thrilling rollercoaster sprint down the Conrod Straight,” said Greenwalt.
“Few circuits have been requested more by the worldwide Forza fan base than Bathurst, and for good reason.
“It holds a special place in motorsports history as one of the most demanding and challenging circuits in the world,” he added.
“This is the Bathurst that racing fans have been asking for years and we’re proud to bring it to them in Forza Motorsport 5.”
In related news, Xbox has announced the launch of the Xbox One Racing Team, which will compete in the 2013 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
