Forza 5 update adds Long Beach circuit for free

Plus five new vehicles for Car Pass owners, or available to buy.

Xbox One racer Forza Motorsport 5 will tomorrow be updated with a brand new track, California's Long Beach circuit, Microsoft has announced.

The course will be available for free to all users and will be added to all modes: Career, Rivals and multiplayer.

It's been recreated with the use of "laser scanning, thousands of photos, and hours of video", Microsoft wrote in a new blog post so that "each unique palm tree" is faithful to the real-life original.

Tomorrow also marks the release of the latest monthly car pack for the game, which will include the 1977 Ford Coyote Gilmore77, the 1974 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale, the 1956 Jaguar D-Type, the 1998 Mercedes-Benz AMG Mercedes CLK GTR, and the 1971 Ferrari #2 Ferrari Automobili 312 P.
