Dell Gaming Car pack brings Bugatti Chiron to Forza Motorsport 7

Turn 10 Studios, the developer of Forza Motorsport 7, has just released this month’s collection of downloadable cars for the gamers. This time, it is very different from last month’s downloadable batch that included largely classic vehicles. Because for the month of February, they decided to put emphasis on the modern performance that includes bringing the Bugatti Chiron to the game.

We actually find it very strange that the Forza Motorsport 7’s extensive lineup, with over 700 vehicles, lacks the Chiron, which limits gamers to experience the top batch of hypercars. The Bugatti Chiron here has an 8.0 liter quad turbocharged W16 that enables it to produce 1,479 horsepower (1,102 kilowatts) and 1,190 pound-feet (1,599 Newton metres) of torque.

In fact, it will only take the coupe around 2.5 seconds to hit 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) before hitting the limited top speed of 261 miles per hour (420 kilometers per hour). In real life, not a lot of people get the chance to experience a car this quick, but now, Forza players have the opportunity to enjoy how the Bugatti performs on a track, plus they do not have to worry about totally wrecking the car.

2017 SEMA: Ford F-150 Raptor takes inspiration from Xbox One X

It was not very long ago when we first saw the Ford F-150 Raptor, and already we have seen a number of interesting variants of the said model. From a police truck, and now to an Xbox One X Edition, that was specially made for gamers. Its release is timed to nearly coincide with Microsoft’s launch of its newest gaming console, the Xbox One X, on November 7. It will be the fourth generation Xbox console since it was first launched. This videogame-inspired F-150 Raptor is showcased at the 2017 SEMA Show in Vegas. Of course, it is dressed in a unique Xbox livery and has got a number of added performance cues.

The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Xbox One X Edition was designed with a number of video-game inspired design elements such as custom graphics, paint, and even the upholstery - all of which are inspired by Xbox One X’s internal codename “project Scorpio”. The exterior is finished in a subtle matte grey paint, with matching white accents all over, and of course, Forza Motorsport decals by the front wheel. Some of which include a giant “X” as well as the words “Project Scorpio” across the windshield. This truck is basically an Xbox on wheels.

To make it even more special, it had been given custom wheels, bumpers, a chase rack, and some green LED lighting of course - the same hue that has been used on every Xbox since 2001. There are performance modifications that come standard like the Fabtech six-inch lift kit, upgraded Alcon brakes, and Addictive Desert Designs intercooler and a Ford Performance Borla exhaust. However, it was not mentioned whether this would give the standard Raptor added horsepower. But without any modifications whatsoever, it does deliver an impressive 450 horsepower (335 kilowatts) from its 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6.

Tech geeks and gamers get their adrenaline fix without having to spend a fortune on their dream cars. Or even if they merely want to experience the coolest ride there is, they can’t do wrong by getting into video games such as Fallout 4 or Forza Motorsport 6.

One of the most exciting news currently in the gaming world is the arrival of the codes for the Chryslus Rocket ’69. Turn 10 studios, developer of the Forza series, and Bethesda Game Studios, developer of post-apocalyptic role-playing video game Fallout, partnered back in November 2015.

A guy with the username 00WARTHERAPY00 commented on a YouTube video entitled, “Can Video Games Be A Spiritual Experience”, a heartwarming story about his father— which basically answers the question of the video published by PBS Digital Studios in 2014.

When he was four years old, his father gave him an original Xbox— the very first one. Two years later, his father passed away. He did not touch the Xbox until 10 years later, playing RalliSport Challenge, a racing game he used to play with his father. He goes to share that he can still play with his father in the form of a ghost.

In racing games, a lap is recorded as a ghost when one sets the fastest lap time. The ghost he was talking about was actually the lap his father was able to set a record of before he passed away. As a result, the guy gets to play with his father whenever he wants. As long as he does not beat his father’s record, he can continue to play with him.

It appears that the next Grand Theft Auto would be set in Los Angeles, a source has confirmed to Kotaku recently. These rumors have been around since years ago but this latest report strengthens the idea.

The game will be set in a version of L.A., bringing it to San Andreas, the last place that received the GTA treatment. Numerous other sources said that the game will make use of more than just one playable character. This would seem to be a natural progression for the series.

After the PlayStation 2's Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto Vice City were released, PSP games that were set in the same cities as those console games permitted each player to control just a single new character. These games helped strengthen the idea that there's more than one life worth living in a Rockstar-made GTA city.
