A seven-minute look at Forza Motorsport was revealed during today’s Xbox and Bethesda Developer Direct presentation, which shared more details about the racing game.

During this time, the developers discussed how they strive to make the game look, sound and feel real through the cars, tracks and audio – all of which promise a “generational leap in fidelity, immersion and realism”.

There will be over 500 real cars in the game, each one more dynamic than ever. You can collect and race these cars, 100 of which are new to the series, as well as customize them with more than 800 unique upgrades and modifications.

In addition to the number of cars, their appearance was also improved using a spectrophotometer. This collects multiple data points of light behavior on a surface and with this technique the color models have a more realistic light response across colors, metallic flakes and gloss levels.

The next in the racing series also features cars with context-aware damage and dirt build-up, all authentic and unique to each vehicle, with more accumulation in the low-pressure areas such as depressions and niches.

Turn 10 also strives to create a more fun and rewarding driving experience by utilizing advances in physics simulation that are greater than Forza Motorsport 5, 6 and 7 combined.

Forza Motorsport launches with 20 environments with multiple track layouts. In addition to fan favorites, you can race at five brand new motorsport locations including the first in South Africa – Kyalami.

Due to the level of detail that was put into the tracks through photogrammetry and laser-scanned imagery, Turn 10 was able to show 10x more realistic detail for vegetation and overgrowth.

New to Forza Motorsport is a dynamic time of day mechanic with weather, including track temperatures, wet pavement, and rubber for each track. This ensures that no track is played the same way twice.

For a more immersive audio experience, the team worked with Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos. Each audio system has been rebuilt to create an immersive soundscape to enhance car sounds with the highest fidelity possible. These include upgraded tire and suspension audio, as well as exhaust systems and turbos that change when modified to sound like their real-world counterparts.

Forza Motorsport is due out this year on PC and Xbox Series X/S.
