Forza Motorsport 5 will feature the “digital cousin” of Top Gear’s The Stig, the BBC and Microsoft have announced.
Top Gear’s commercial director Duncan Gray said.
“Trying to beat The Stig on track has long been the petrol-fuelled dreams of Top Gear fans everywhere and whilst Jeremy and the team did not want to frustrate or embarrass gamers by putting forward the real Stig, they did help us track down a potentially more fallible relative of their tame racing driver.”
Then Dan Greenawalt, creative director on Forza Motorsport 5, added:
“The partnership between Forza Motorsport and Top Gear has featured many highlights over the years. Including The Stig’s digital cousin in the game is a natural extension of that creative partnership. Now, on top of racing against the best virtual drivers in the world online or against brand new cloud-powered Drivatar opponents in career mode, players can tackle the digital cousin of one of the world’s most celebrated racing icons.”
