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.

We can’t wait to share more details about Forza Motorsport soon! In the meantime, tune into Forza Monthly this Thursday, June 16 on our official Twitch and YouTube channels where I’ll take you through the trailer.

I really enjoyed this presentation. Graphically, it looks fantastic and all the other additions they showed are great. It will be over 5 years since the last Forza Motorsport game released and having the extra time shows. A true generational leap.

Looks amazing. Worth the wait.

Probably the best looking game at the show. Turn 10 never disapoints

Gran Turismo 7 looks PS3-ish compared to this. Night and day.

You're either blind or that's just wishful thinking.
With that said, I can play both as I have a PC and ps5.
Also, trust me on this, it will be delayed most likely to summer or fall of 2023, we are over a year away, meanwhile I have been enjoying GT7 already for months, and we always get constant updates improving and expanding the game.
Knowing Microsoft, this game will be a crash fest online, totally useless.
Its impressive how Microsoft keeps promising stuff, keeps showing stuff, yet, 18 months into the generation and there's barely anything to show for. Just another Halo. another forza horizon and flight simulator, which most people are not into.
Microsoft is just talk, this time they are even funny, 48x improvement in the physics simulation, that basically says that forza 7 had worse simulation than mario kart. Sorry but that sounds like bullshitt.

Yeah, nope post launch support for GT7 has been beyond piss poor so far. You got a handful of DLC cars and that is about it. Its, good though since I'm going to save a ton of money, I'm pretty sure I'm not buying it until its $20 now. FM6 and FM7 are still superior to GT7 in both car list and track list.

Let's see when Digital Foundry reviews the two. I'm betting Gran Turismo 7 will eat dust.

Forza games usually release on-time, both Motorsport and Horizon. On what basis are you predicting this game will be delayed when it's already had the longest-gestation period of any Forza game yet?!

Exactly once they announce a release date, they always stick to it. GT games since GT5 on the other hand get delayed constantly.

Another Forza game haha,

It's like call of duty every 1 year we get a new one but this time it's Forza motorsport and then horizon / motorsport / horizon back to the good all days

Forza 7 in 2017
Forza Horizon 4 in 2018
Forza Horizon 5 in 2021
Forza 8 in 2023.

How is that every year?

It used to be, sure. Clearly isn't anymore.

You're funny lol. It's been 5 years since the last Forza Motorsport which is developed by Turn 10 Studios which is the hardcore racing sim and Playground Games develops the Forza Horizon games which is an open world arcade racer. Two different genre of racing games by two different development studios.

You never see people going "another Gran Turismo game haha"

Dats becoz it takes years to make a gt game not like Forza coming out every 1 or 2 years lol

gtotheunit91 LivncA_Dis3 (on 15 June 2022)

The last Forza Motorsport released the same year as the last GT dude in 2017 lol. GT will have now released a new game a full year before the next Motorsport does

No Forza has come out with a sequel 1 year later in the history of the franchise. Motorsport and Horizon are different franchises from different developers, so that's not relevant.

Unlikely. The devs specifically named Series X/S and PC.
