Microsoft’s gaming showcase, the publisher revealed the long-anticipated next game in its flagship racing series, Forza Motorsport. The new title doesn’t have a sequel number and is out in Spring 2023.
In a nearly six-minute gameplay demo, Turn10 and Microsoft show the rebuilt Forza Motorsport, describing it almost as a complete reboot of the series, featuring new physics and enhanced car handling.
In the gameplay demo shown, Turn 10 Studios devs reported that Maple Valley, a classic Forza track is returning in this new entry. The devs also explained that for the first time in the Motorsport series, this new Forza will support dynamic time of day. According to the devs, the time of day will influence ambient temperatures, and that will how tires feel on various track surfaces at various speeds.
It will also feature fantastic-looking raytracing-powered visuals and incredibly detailed photogrammetry-created worlds, filled with hyper-realistic in-game objects and scenery.
As with past Forza games, this new game is concentrating on realism and the devs are adding enhanced car damage to all vehicles, claiming that each particular scratch is simulated and modeled in-game.
Also coming to the franchise with this new, great next-gen entry: Tire and fuel management. This is something a lot of fans of the series have been asking for and Turn 10 is adding it, that means players will need to hit the pits to get fresh tires and refueled during longer, more extreme races.
The end result is a gorgeous-looking game that somehow looks better than Forza Horizon 5, a game that already looked great.
This new Forza Motorsport will be released next Spring on Xbox Series X/S and PC. And as with all Xbox first-party games, it will be on Game Pass at launch.
