- There is no release date!
The most anticipated conference at the 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 simply be called Forza Motorsport. Yes, as announced several months ago, the saga has decided to resume the series from the very beginning to also welcome newcomers and implement a great return to basics.
How to play Forza Motorsport! that’s cool
It’s Chris Isaki, the creator of Forza Motorsport himself, who opens the ball! Announce it from the start We’ll be dealing with the “most technologically advanced” racing game out there. And given the few excerpts, we’re ready to take his word for it.
Cars will certainly be plentiful, but we’ve also improved their appearance with the help of a spectrophotometer, which records multiple data points on a surface to analyze the behavior of light on it. Thanks to this new technology, our models interact with light in a more realistic way, whether it be colors, luster in the metal, or levels of sheen. Damage and dust on cars are calculated based on context in an original way and this is different for each vehicle, for example dust will accumulate more in some corners and in cavities.

During the broadcast of the few snippets, the game was great and even more satisfying. After the announcement that there will be a total 500 cars to drive and over 800 unique upgrades As for the cars, Gabriel Garcia, Technical Director of Vehicles, is back with the updates.
In particular, we learn that ray tracing will be more impressive than ever and that the physics engine will be very powerful. It looks more powerful than the ones in Forza Motorsport 5, 6, and 7 combined, that’s just it. Novelties, damages and other dirt will be highlighted this time.
Damage and accumulated dirt are unique. It is contextualized and translated. Simulates the thickness, gloss and directivity of the coating. Dirt build-up is more tangible, especially in low-pressure areas such as the reinforcements and cavities. These innovations tell the story of your racing performance. Gabriel Garcia, Vehicle Art Director
There is no release date!
If we were expecting this new conference to offer a release date, unfortunately we know that’s not the case. But to be forgiven, the creators and creators of Forza Motorsport revealed just how many environments we can traverse…and there are many of them.
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 first set in South Africa: Kyalami. The level of resolution made possible by photogrammetry and laser-scanned images makes it possible to obtain details ten times more realistic, especially for plants. With our state-of-the-art graphics, which allow us, for example, to display tens of thousands of animated spectators fully in 3D, you will be completely immersed in the spectacle of car 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 the race that takes place at the end of the day and finish it at midnight. Good news, especially since it has a good chance of increasing the contribution of ray tracing contributions.
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.
