Since announcing the game back in 2020, Microsoft has been a big cagey about rolling out new Forza Motorsport info. We finally got a first look at the game last summer, and since then, not a lot has been shared. Well, today during the first Xbox and Bethesda Developer Direct, we got a fresh look at Turn 10 Studios’ new racer.
The new dev video provides a look at the game’s impressive ray-tracing, which reflects the minute differences in different paint types. Turn 10 is also promising 4K/60fps gameplay with ray-tracing, over 500 cars at launch, and 20 racing environments, including 5 all-new ones, like the Kyalami Grand Prix in South Africa. Unfortunately, the game’s spring 2023 release window is no longer a lock, as the game is now only promised for 2023. You can check out the new Forza Motorsport video, below.
Haven’t been keeping up with Forza Motorsport? Here’s some information about the new tech Turn 10 is looking to bring to the track…
“Forza Motorsport has been built from the ground up to showcase the Xbox Series X|S consoles. The accuracy of our overhauled physics, the beauty of our cars and tracks, our new dynamic time of day, advanced car damage, and real-time ray tracing on track lead to a generational leap in immersion. The all-new Forza Motorsport is the most technically advanced racing game ever made.
Fundamental to Forza Motorsport is our fully dynamic time-of-day system, which brings tracks to life in stunning detail and like weather, it will be available on every track. Changes in time of day alter ambient temperatures, which, in turn, impacts the track surface temperatures. These track temperature changes will affect the grip of your car, as does rubbering in and weather. These new simulation details add further depth, drama, and dynamics to the racing experience.
We’ve completely overhauled the core driving experience to take advantage of the power of the Xbox Series consoles. This includes a 48 times improvement in the fidelity of our physics simulation. Based on your feedback, we’ve introduced new features like tire and fuel management, multiple tire compounds, and new in-depth car building to create the ultimate racing playset. This is all brought to life at the trackside pits, where advanced materials and shaders paired with ray tracing bring out incredible detail in the gold heat wrap, anodized aluminum, and carbon fiber. Ray tracing especially shines on engine bays with their complex self-reflection.
In Forza Motorsport, car damage is reproduced down to the individual scratches on the bodywork. There are all-new simulation details in the directionality of damage, how the paint peels away at exposed and raised edges, in the wheel abrasions, and in the dirt build-up. Car damage is a racing reality and has been authentically captured in the new Forza Motorsport.”
Forza Motorsport races onto PC and Xbox Series X/S sometime in 2023.
