  • Gameplay for Forza Motorsport! That’s wonderful
  • Still no release date!

The most awaited conference of this beginning of the year is finally here, and as promised, it allows us to discover more about the eighth episode of the Forza Motorsport saga which will be simply called Forza Motorsport. Yes, as announced several months ago, the saga decided to resume the series from the beginning to also welcome newcomers and execute a magnificent return to basics.

Gameplay for Forza Motorsport! That’s wonderful

It’s Chris Esaki, the creator of Forza Motorsport himself, who opens the ball! He announces from the outset that we will be dealing with the “most technically advanced” racing game. And in view of the few extracts, we are ready to take his word for it.

The cars will certainly be plentiful, but we’ve also enhanced their look with the help of a spectrophotometer, which records multiple data points on a surface to analyze how light behaves on it. Thanks to this new technique, our models react to light in a more realistic way, whether it’s colors, glitter in the metal or shine levels. Damage and dust on cars are calculated based on the context in an authentic way and this differs for each vehicle, for example dust will accumulate more in certain corners and in alcoves.

During the few excerpts broadcast, the game is magnificent and even more picky. After announcing that there will be a total of 500 cars to drive and over 800 unique upgrades for the cars, Gabriel Garcia, the artistic director of the vehicles returned to the novelties.

We learn in particular that the ray-tracing will be more than impressive than ever and that the physics engine will be very powerful. It looks even stronger than those of Forza Motorsport 5, 6 and 7 combined, just that. Other novelties, damage and dirt will be highlighted this time.

The damage and dirt buildup is unique. They are contextualized and localized. It simulates the thickness, sheen and directionality of the paint. Dirt buildup is more realistic, especially in low pressure areas like reinforcements and alcoves. These innovations tell the story of your racing performance. Gabriel Garcia, Vehicle Art Director

Still no release date!

If we had expected that this new conference offers a release date, unfortunately know that this is not the case. But to be forgiven, the creators and creators of Forza Motorsport have revealed the number of environments that we can cross… And there are many.

Forza Motorsport will feature 20 environments at launch and plenty of tracks to master. In addition to fan-favorite tracks, you can get behind the wheel to explore new locations in the series, including our very first set in South Africa: Kyalami. The level of precision possible thanks to photogrammetry and images scanned via laser makes it possible to obtain details 10 times more realistic, especially for vegetation. With our state-of-the-art graphics, which let us, for example, display tens of thousands of spectators fully animated in 3D, you will be fully immersed in the spectacle that is motor racing. Turn 10

Finally, note that the game will have the right to dynamic weather and a day/night cycle. In other words, we can start a race that takes place at the end of the day and finish it in the middle of the night. Good news, especially since it has a good chance of further sublimating the contributions of ray-tracing.

As a reminder, Forza Motorsport will be available on Xbox Series X|S and PC (Microsoft Store and Steam), as well as on Xbox Game Pass.
