Forza Motorsport: new details from the Creative Director, list of cars confirmed so far

Yesterday Turn 10 broadcast the new Forza Monthly, during which we talked about the news seen at the Xbox Showcase: the new Hot Wheels DLC of Forza Horizon 5, but above all the brand new Forza Motorsport. On this occasion the Creative Director of the game Chris Esaki has pitted a series of interesting information about the title: let's see them together.

As for the features of the game, Esaki revealed that the title will have a completely new Career mode , while online races will finally have the possibility to be structured as in a race weekend, with practice, qualifying and race sessions, including also planning sessions and race strategy. Esaki also mentioned that the list of cars confirmed so far for the game (list below) is representative of the game's new focus on sports and competition cars; we will also see many new cars never seen in a Forza.

On the technical front, however, the ray-traced reflections during the gameplay have been confirmed, while the ray-traced global illumination (which gives a more realistic look to the entire scene with better shadows and light diffusion) will be present, but only during replays and other unplayed sequences. Also confirmed the presence of dynamic weather and variable time of day on all slopes; the latter will involve not only radical changes in the lighting of the circuits (with the sun being realistically positioned according to the time of day and the coordinates of the circuit), but also in the race performance, when the night hours will result in a cooling of the asphalt and relative decrease in grip. Even the damage system, as shown in the trailer of the Showcase, is now much more realistic showing damage compatible with the type of impact suffered and scratches on the body and rims compatible with the direction of the impact.

As for the simulation, Esaki explains that the game's engine has been completely overhauled and numerous systems have been completely rewritten to achieve a much deeper level of simulation than in the past, while maintaining the classic feeling of the series; it will also be the most dynamic Forza experience ever, thanks to the many variables in play and new tactical options for managing the race and the pits.
