You Can Race The Stig's Digital Cousin In Forza Motorsport 5

Some say he's The Stig. But he's not. He's The Stig's digital cousin. And he's coming to Forza Motorsport 5 on XBOX One in November.

Forza just announced a pretty substantial partnership with Top Gear, and it includes what might be the first ever video game appearance of The Stig, and you'll even be able to race against him.

And since Top Gear is still so damn popular these days, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May will all be in the game, giving voiceovers for cars during the career mode. That means you can expect a lot of outlandish analogies, lovely British accents, and probably at least one shout of POWWWWERRRRRR.

Also, yes, you will be able to race the full Top Gear Test Track at Dunsfold, just like in Gran Turismo 5.

Didn't they already have a Top Gear partnership in Forza 4? I thought there was a whole mode where you could hear Jeremy talk about a bunch of cars plus the Dunsfold track.

GT5 had a similar partnership, but didn't do much with it; you get the Dunsfold track and...well, that's it. Of course they later released some DLC packages which, among other things, contained a white Simpson racing helmet with a blue visor and a white Alpinestars racing suit for your driving avatar. So you can essentially make yourself the Stig as you put various cars around the track and compare them to this list... What, nobody else does that?

I just still can't believe that neither game, with all their thousands of driveable cars thought to explicitly include the 'reasonably-priced car'.
