Turn 10 Studios finally took the covers off Forza Motorsport, its next mainline title in the racing sim franchise. It confirmed that it would feature 500 cars, the most in the franchise thus far, with 800 different upgrades. A release date isn’t available, but it’s still coming in 2023 for Xbox Series X/S and PC.
The visuals are incredible, with materials and shaders built from the ground up for a ray tracing experience. Dirt accumulates realistically on cars and paint chips, telling a story of the race. There is ten times the number of details, with animated track life, physically based materials and a fully procedural cloud system that evolves organically. Even the crowd of spectators number in the tens of thousands and are fully animated.
There are 20 environments with iconic favorites and five new locations, including the first in South Africa – Kyalami, with a fully dynamic time of day and weather. Furthermore, all environments are rendered in 4K/60 FPS with ray tracing on track for full reflections. Stay tuned for more details, especially in the next Forza Monthly livestream.
