The eighth installment of the “Forza Motorsport” installment is on its way to the Xbox Series X and Series S consoles, and a new video in-game footage is due to be released on Sunday.
Set for release in the spring of 2023, “Forza Motorsport” (no “8” in the title) continues as a racing simulator, as opposed to the more arcade-like “Forza Horizon” series. And the new video highlights the impressive graphics that the game can create using the popular Maple Valley racetrack as a showcase.
The game features 4K / 60fps graphics and realistic images of reflection, vehicle damage and even daylight changes. This last feature means that the shadows change depending on the time of day, helping to enhance the immersive nature of the game.
Then there are the new physics models. Like a real racetrack, changes in time of day affect the temperature of the track which in turn affects the grip level. The rubber layer on the track and in the weather also changes things. Tire and fuel management will also be embedded in the new game.
As for the cars, they also feature incredible detail. Some of the highlights are Audi RS E-Tron GT, Brabham BT62, Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, Koenigsegg Jesko, and Porsche 911 GT3. There are multiple race cars including the Acura ARX-05 DPi, Audi R8 LMS GT3, Chevy Corvette C8.R and even Mazda’s Wild 787B Le Mans.
