But Forza Monthly isn’t the only stream this week that will feature new details on Forza Motorsport. Microsoft is hosting an Xbox and Bethesda Developer Direct stream on January 25 that will showcase “new, expanded gameplay” for the upcoming racing sim. In other words, it’s been a good week for Forza fans.
what to look forward to
Forza Motorsport (technically Forza Motorsport 8) was first announced in 2020, but since then, there hasn’t been a huge amount of details shared about the next entry in the long-running racing series.
However, we do know that it will release in early 2023 and serve as a reboot of the series in a way. What’s more, it looks like Turn 10 is trying to push the physics of what’s possible in a racing game with this next entry. While we got to see glimpses of it, especially in the 2022 gameplay demo (opens in new tab)I hope the upcoming live stream will give us a better idea of the car physics.
Turn 10 has also confirmed the 41 cars that will appear in Forza Motorsport, nine of which are new. If you want to see for yourself, check out user youngrombus’ list (opens in new tab) on GTPlanet. We’ve got a look at five tracks so far, with the stunning Autumn track appearing in the Maple Valley 2022 gameplay demo. It is however unclear whether this entry will have the same number of cars and tracks as its predecessor, which claimed 700 cars and 32 tracks in total.
Forza Motorsport will be available to play on Xbox Series X|S and PC, as well as on Game Pass at launch at no additional cost. If the promise of a constant 60 fps at 4K resolution wasn’t enough, this great deal would definitely encourage me to pick it up. Here’s hoping that what’s revealed this week will make Forza Motorsport an even more attractive proposition.
