Forza Motorsport will release later this year on PC, Xbox Series, and Game Pass.
What to look forward to: Turn 10 Studios has shared new details about the long-awaited next installment in the Forza Motorsport series. Chris Esaki, creative director at Turn 10 Studios, said the game is being built from the ground up to be the most technically advanced racing game ever made. At launch, there will be over 500 cars to race, customize, and collect—the most advanced racing cars Forza has ever featured on its roster.
Vehicle art director Gabe Garcia said the improvements to their physics models are greater than in Forza 5, 6, and 7 combined. Everything is rendered in 4K at 60fps with real-time ray tracing.
Turn 10 also goes above and beyond in terms of visual appeal. The paints were obtained using a spectrophotometer to capture multiple data points about the behavior of light on various surfaces. Moreover, damage is now context dependent and unique to each vehicle. The game even simulates paint thickness, chips, and directionality, and dirt buildup is also more realistic.
Racing is not only a visual experience, but also an auditory experience, and Turn 10 does not skimp here either. The project’s audio director Chase Combs said it was the first Forza game originally mixed for immersive audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and Windows Sonic.
Mods now change the sound of your car. Install a new exhaust or add a supercharger and you will immediately notice the difference. The Turn 10 has even received small tweaks, such as a regional track alert system, as well as improved tire suspension and audio systems.
The game will launch with 20 racing environments, five of which are new to the series. A lot of details have been put into the design of the tracks to make them look as realistic as possible. For the first time in the series, there will be a fully dynamic time of day with weather, as well as dynamic track temperature, wet road surfaces and tires.
