May 10, 2007 - With all the hooplah over the May release of Forza 2, [Register or Login to view links] has gone under the radar. That changes today. Microsoft revealed some new info about Bizarre Creations' fall racer.
Bizzare's goal for PGR 4 is to create an "emotionally-charged racing experience." One way that will be accomplished is through the new career mode. As your driver progresses, winning races and racking up kudos, he gains new fans. They cheer just for him as he passes other drivers. And thanks to the revised kudos system, your newly-confident driver will pump his fist as he passes an opponent. Just don't get too full of yourself, because the AI promises to be as big as showoff as your virtual driver.
Also added is a new dynamic weather system. You won't turn on and off rain or worry about a snow flurry in one specific track. The weather changes and you never know what to expect when you start your engine. The weather will force you to adjust your driving techniques, particularly when powering around corners in any of the 10 different locations in PGR 4.
