Microsoft and developer Turn 10 Studios announced the new Forza Motorsport game, simply titled Forza Motorsport, launches in spring 2023.
Forza Motorsport (2023) is coming to Windows PC and Xbox Series X|S sometime in spring 2023.
The series is split into two different games the Motorsport series which is aimed more at simulation racing and circuit style racing ala Gran Tourismo while Forza Horizon titles are more of arcade titles doing off the wall things like stunt driving or chasing airplanes in real life locations and cities in an open world environment.
The game features real-time ray tracing and dynamic time of day track conditions. In the event they also mentioned the Maple Valley track is making a comeback, one of my favorites.
The trailer shows a variety of cars ranging from classic sport racing cars to muscle cars of the 1970s and modern supercars like the BMW M8 shown at the event. If Sim racing is something that grabs your attention and playing with gear ratios on your dream car seems like a fun time, make sure to stay up with us on more info on this game.
Here’s a new trailer, and a gameplay demonstration:
Here’s a rundown on the 2020-announced game:
Forza Motorsport (2023)
Fan Favorites Return Alongside New Locales
Captured in-game and running on Xbox Series X, we unveiled a brand-new trailer, which debuted alongside the first ever gameplay of Forza Motorsport, showcasing how Maple Valley – a beloved, fan-favorite track since the very first Motorsport game launched in 2005 – is being brought to life in stunning detail and beauty.
In addition to Maple Valley, our trailer introduced players to returning fan-favorite tracks Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and Laguna Seca Raceway. We also revealed Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit, a South African track making its Forza Motorsport debut, and the all-new Circuit Hakone set in Japan, an original, high-speed Grand Prix circuit built to showcase the technically advanced, state of the art immersion of the new Forza Motorsport.
Built for Immersion and More Dynamic Than Ever
Forza Motorsport has been built from the ground up to showcase the Xbox Series X|S consoles. The accuracy of our overhauled physics, the beauty of our cars and tracks, our new dynamic time of day, advanced car damage, and real time ray tracing on track lead to a generational leap in immersion. The all-new Forza Motorsport is the most technically advanced racing game ever made.
Fundamental to Forza Motorsport is our fully dynamic time of day system, which brings tracks to life in stunning detail and like weather, it will be available on every track. Changes in time of day alter ambient temperatures, which, in turn, impacts the track surface temperatures. These track temperature changes will affect the grip of your car, as does rubbering in and weather. These new simulation details add further depth, drama, and dynamics to the racing experience.
We’ve completely overhauled the core driving experience to take advantage of the power of the Xbox Series consoles. This includes a 48 times improvement in the fidelity of our physics simulation. Based on your feedback, we’ve introduced new features like tire and fuel management, multiple tire compounds, and new in-depth car building to create the ultimate racing playset. This is all brought to life at the trackside pits, where advanced materials and shaders paired with ray tracing bring out incredible detail in the gold heat wrap, anodized aluminum, and carbon fiber. Ray tracing especially shines on engine bays with their complex self-reflection.
Show Off Your Battle Damage
In Forza Motorsport, car damage is reproduced down to the individual scratches on the bodywork. There are all-new simulation details in the directionality of damage, how the paint peels away at exposed and raised edges, in the wheel abrasions, and in the dirt build-up. Car damage is a racing reality and has been authentically captured in the new Forza Motorsport.
