The upcoming Forza was showcased in two videos, with some interesting graphical improvements over previous versions and potential rivals from other platforms. We currently know that we’ll have to wait until spring 2023 to enjoy it, and that it will release simultaneously on PC and Xbox X Series X|S, as it did with Forza Horizon 5. We’ve included everything shown in today’s videos, plus new social accounts and some images to help you appreciate her beauty, below.
Forza Motorsport, which will be released in the spring of 2023, was designed from the ground up to showcase the Xbox X|S Series consoles. The precision of our overhauled physics, the beauty of our cars and tracks, our dynamic new time of day, advanced car damage, and real-time ray tracing on the track all contribute to a generational leap in the immersion. Forza Motorsport is the most technologically advanced racing game ever created.
We’ve unveiled a new trailer that debuted alongside the first Forza Motorsport game, showing how Maple Valley – a beloved and fan-favorite track from the first Motorsport game released in 2005 – comes to life in vivid detail and stunning beauty, captured in-game and running on an Xbox Series X.
Besides Maple Valley, our trailer introduced players to fan favorites Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and Laguna Seca Raceway. We also unveiled Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit, a South African track making its Forza Motorsport debut, and the new Hakone Circuit, located in Japan, an original high-speed Grand Prix circuit designed to showcase technologies advanced and cutting-edge features of the new Forza Motorsport. immersion.
Our fully dynamic time of day system, which brings tracks to life in stunning detail and, like the weather, will be available at every track, is a key part of Forza Motorsport. Changes in the time of day affect ambient temperatures, which in turn affect track surface temperatures. These changes in track temperature, along with rubber and weather, will impact your car’s grip. These new simulation details enhance the racing experience by adding depth, drama and dynamism.
Photogrammetry and 3D material scans were used to capture the environments, while advanced rendering and procedural generation techniques add a new level of realism to the track. Grass, rocks, 3D vegetation, skies and clouds demonstrate a generational leap in beauty and detail, while + forward lighting and physics-based lights combine to increase realism and immersion in our world of motorsport, which is highlighted by the nocturnal glow of Maple Valley. Big Wheel.
To take advantage of the power of Xbox Series consoles, we’ve completely redesigned the core driving experience. This includes a 48x increase in the accuracy of our physics simulation. To create the ultimate racing game, we’ve added new features such as tire and fuel management, multiple tire compounds, and an in-depth new car build based on your feedback. It all comes to life in the pits, where advanced materials and shaders, combined with ray tracing, add incredible detail to the gold thermal envelope, anodized aluminum and carbon fiber. With its intricate self-reflection, ray-tracing shines especially in engine compartments.
Car damage is replicated down to individual scratches in Forza Motorsport. New simulation details include damage directionality, how paint peels off exposed and raised edges, wheel abrasions and dirt buildup. Car damage is a reality of racing, and it’s been accurately depicted in the new Forza Motorsport.
