Forza Motorsport: Release date, gameplay, multiplayer, latest news, & more!
With the latest Forza game just around the corner, take a look at what we know so far!
It’s not complete radio silence however, and there are pieces of news filtering out about the 8th instalment of the more sim-focused racing title.
Here’s everything we know so far about Forza Motorsport!
Unfortunately, very little is known about the release date.
Revealed in 2020, there is still no release date more than 12 months on.
Instead, Xbox racers have seen Forza Horizon 5 be announced with a November 2021 release date.
This is a huge disappointment for the more sim-focused racers out there. As enjoyable as the Horizon series is, there’s no circuit racing on the great tracks of the world there.
With Horizon coming soon, we don’t expect to see any announcement around Motorsport’s release until early 2022, and predict a release date of September 2022.
When Turn 10 announced the game in late July 2020, the game was still in early development. There have been some playtests this year, but overall very little is known about how the new Motorsport title will play.
We do know that Turn 10 has greatly improved the tyre model for Motorsport. Increasing the amount and frequency of data the game will process. This will hugely impact handling, and should make Forza Motorsport the most realistic instalment of the franchise.
As playtesting continues we will hopefully get more insights into the game, but we don’t expect to see a new trailer until next year.
The announcement trailer was shot in the game’s engine, so we can expect similar visuals. However, this doesn’t quiet equate to actual gameplay footage.
In fact, the announcement of the game boasts 4K resolution, 60fps capabilities, and ray tracing.
This should all be exclusive to the next-gen consoles. The delay to release could make Forza Motorsport a Series X|S exclusive, but it’s likely it will get an Xbox One release too. Albeit with 1080p resolution and likely a 30fps cap.
The rumours circulating currently seem to suggest a less is more approach, especially when it comes to the car list. Expectations are that the car list will be trimmed down from FM7.
This is no bad thing if more time and detail is put into the cars that are included, to help them feel However, we more than expect Turn 10 to have done a great job perfecting each and every one of them.
This means that the developers, Turn 10, can focus on perfecting the feel of each and every vehicle.
