We’ve recently had the first look at next year’s release of Forza Motorsport. Unlike Gran Turismo 7 and Forza Horizon 5, this title offers ray tracing in-game. So what we have is ray tracing implementation whilst racing, which is a first in console racing.
The official Forza website has some more information. The website states
Forza Motorsport has been built from the ground up to showcase the Xbox Series X|S consoles. Together with the accuracy of overhauled physics, the beauty of the cars and tracks, the new dynamic time of day, advanced car damage, and real time ray tracing on track, the all-new Forza Motorsport is a generational leap in immersion and the most technically advanced racing game ever made.
Forza Motorsport And What Else To Expect
We know about the enhancements in-game and how powerful it will look visually. We also have the release window of Spring next year. Looking at some of the questions asked, we can work out some more information. It’s not confirmed it’s bypassing Xbox One consoles at this stage. All we can tell is Turn 10 will “share more details on platform availability at a later date.”
Another confirmed detail is the frame rate. We don’t know if this includes the ray tracing turned on but the game is running at 60fps on both Xbox Series consoles.
Q: How does Forza Motorsport perform on Xbox Series X|S?
A: Forza Motorsport runs at 4K 60 FPS on Xbox Series X; and on 1080p 60 FPS on Xbox Series S.
So it’s looking like the most impressive title in the franchise to date. It will also launch on day one in Game Pass and if like previous versions launch with two or three versions.
