Time dust off the old 360 and controller. This is very good news!

This could be really cool or it could be a big, who gives a crap moment.

The official page calls it a 'partnership' and only mentions tracks that have appeared in previous Forza games. All 26 cars, also mentioned, would not be a big bonus either considering most have also appeared in past games. Basically a partnership that adds some paint schemes and a logo to the box

The really cool bit could be if they include the full ALMS season. That would be at least four new real-life tracks that were not in F3. Long Beach, Lime Rock Mid Ohio and Mosport. Could be five if they include Baltimore which is new this year but might make for a nice city track - far better than the NY crap at least. Go one better if they include dynamic day/night cycles.

Anyway. It is Turn 10 so I won't get my hopes up.

Any chance we get an actual ALMS season mode? I know Forza 4 will only have a max of 12 cars on track at once but it would still be nice to race a season/championship with 12 LMP cars or even a combination of 6 LMP and 6 GT cars on the grid. It would be nice to be able to race this outside of career mode too.

I also wonder if there are any other ALMS tracks besides the 4 mentioned in the article. Long Beach, Lime Rock, Mid Ohio and Mosport would be really nice. I don't really care about Baltimore.

Not according to the career mode walk through video in another thread. But 12 is still an upgrade from the 8 car fields we had in Forza 3...
