The Best Driving Games For Xbox One
Driving games are not just the preserve of PCs and mobile apps. They are also available at a reasonable price on game consoles.
Below we list the best driving games for Xbox One:
1. Assetto Corsa
In this addictive racing simulator, you can work on your lap times in flashy sports cars like Porsches and Lamborghinis.
The smooth handling and authentic sounds will whet your appetite as you accelerate around the Highlands racetrack.
2. DiRT Rally 2.0
Although we’ve now treated to the arrival of DiRT 5, it’s DiRT Rally 2.0 that continues to keep us coming back for more.
With a sublime combination of incredible graphics and physics, each sector you pass in DiRT Rally 2.0 will make you feel like the next Colin McRae or leave you swearing at your screen.
The game is undoubtedly one of the most challenging we’ve ever played. Still, anyone who’s ever had the opportunity to experience getting behind the wheel of a rally car will know exactly how hard it truly is.
If you think you’ve got what it takes and are willing to spend countless hours refining your skills on some of the most demanding courses we’ve ever driven, DiRT Rally 2.0 is the ultimate driving game challenge.
When you eventually nail it, this game is SO damn satisfying!
3. F1 22
The latest game in the official F1 gaming series certainly doesn’t disappoint.
Bringing the latest challenges that F1 drives have to deal with on the track, it provides the most immersive yet challenging experience to date.
Whether you’re a younger fan of F1 picking up the controller for the first time or an advanced gamer looking to shave milliseconds off their best lap times at their favorite official circuits across the globe, F1 22 has something for everyone – ensure you’re selecting the correct difficulty level!
If you’re not too keen on splashing out for the price tag that comes with the game, we highly recommend checking out F1 21, which will provide almost as much as this game besides some minor graphics and physics tweaks and the annual F1 rule changes.
4. Forza Horizon 5
The ultimate open-world driving experience for Xbox gamers is arguably from Playground Games, with the latest and greatest version of their hugely-popular Horizon series.
As a Microsoft exclusive, the game is only available for Xbox and PC gamers, who can share the game cross-platform, but Playstation owners miss out on this incredible experience.
Having visited Colorado, Southern Europe, Australia, and the UK, the fifth game in the series provides Mexico with the chance to shine. With some exhilarating road and off-road action, the game certainly doesn’t disappoint.
With the ability to get behind the wheel of some of the fastest cars on the planet, or shred your tires with the ultimate drift tune, Forza Horizon 5 does have something for everyone.
With the imminent release of the brand-new Forza Motorsport 8 game, the rumor mill is heating with some exciting Forza Horizon 6 updates, but it’s looking like there’s still some time until the game hits the shelves.
Until then, Forza Horizon 5 is undoubtedly one of our favorite Xbox driving games, and we highly recommend that any driving game fan takes some time to check out what it has to offer.
5. Burnout Paradise Remastered
This spruced-up version of an old favorite is one of the most enjoyable driving games for Xbox One. Its stripped-back sensibility gives it a charm all of its own.
Pull up to a traffic light to start a race and wait until one comes along. You then traverse Paradise City to the strains of the Guns ‘N’ Roses song of the same name, picking up collectibles as you go.
Your objective is to reach the chequered flag by any means possible, upgrading to a better vehicle if necessary.
So, there you have it.
The range of driving games for Xbox One encompasses racing simulators, off-road challenges, and prestigious Formula One experiences. Today’s gamers are spoilt for choice like never before.
