Turn 10 Studios provides a new in-depth look at Forza Motorsport
Last summer, Turn 10 Studios and Xbox announced a new entry in the acclaimed Forza Motorsport series, built from the ground up for the Xbox Series X/S. The studio made big promises about the kind of experience it could deliver with the new hardware, and during today’s Xbox Developer Direct we got more information about the next entry in the sim racing franchise, dubbed simply Forza Motorsport.
Turn 10 Studios calls this entry “a generational leap for the Forza Motorsport franchise.” For the first time in series history, Forza Motorsport features fully dynamic time of day and weather conditions that affect how cars drive. Track temperatures and surface conditions combine with the texture of the driving surface to ensure every lap is different.
These races take place in 20 environments with multiple track layouts available at launch. Fans can expect their favorites from previous Forza Motorsport titles as well as five brand new locations. One such location is Kyalami, the first South African location in Forza Motorsport history. Through the use of photogrammetry and laser-scanned images, Turn 10 is able to display 10 times more detail than previous games. The environments feature more detailed vegetation and overgrowth, as well as tens of thousands of fully animated 3D viewers.
The stars of the show will always be the cars, of course, and Forza Motorsport brings a lot to the table in that regard, too. At launch, the game features more than 500 real-world cars. Each of these cars is customizable with more than 800 unique upgrades and modifications. Each vehicle features a level of detail far beyond what almost any player will notice, with context-aware damage and dirt deposits unique to each vehicle, right down to the type of paint being applied. Advanced physics mechanics also improve realism when accelerating, braking and cornering cars. Thanks to special partnerships with Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos, the cars and their respective mods also sound better than ever.
Players can expect to get in the driver’s seat and hit the track via an all-new online racing mode and single-player career mode when Forza Motorsport launches on Xbox Series X/S and PC sometime this year.
