Forza Motorsport to launch next year as possibly the prettiest version of the game so far


A tonne of work has gone into making Forza Motorsport as beautiful and realistic as possible for Xbox and PC

The Forza franchise has always been an important one for car fans, and more so, for gameplay realism.

The next instalment in the Forza world will be Forza Motorsport and it’ll be launched next year for Xbox Series consoles and PC. 

It’s been five years since the release of Forza 7, which in my opinion is one of the greatest driving games ever produced, so how could they make it even better?

Damage detail has been extensively reworked for the new game

Games from the Forza catalogue such as the Horizon series have been highly acclaimed by gaming journalists across the globe, and now ‘Forza 8’ (or Forza Motorsport as it has been called) will bring new levels of realism and accuracy over the previous instalments of the racing game. 

While Forza has never offered a full simulator experience like other titles such as Assetto Corsa, the series has alway aimed to be as close to real life driving as possible while still applying some ‘arcade-style’ elements to the driving physics. 

What can we expect from the new Forza Motorsport?

Cars in the game are incredibly detailed as always and appear life-like

Forza Motorsport’s racing will all be in 4K resolution and will run at an incredible 60 frames per second, which is an impressive feat for a console to handle over and over again. 

We were given a sneak-peak demo of what to expect from the game, and the level of detail is astonishing. From worn pieces of tyre and small pebbles or stones lying on the racetrack to accurate damage modelling and more, this game seems to be a work of art as much as it is a racing game. 

The detail goes as far as changing track temperatures due to the climate and environment of the circuit, such as a warmer surface thanks to more sunshine, or a technically slippery surface thanks to heavy rain. 

Expect an amazing roster of cars for the new Forza Motorsport game!

Here at Chasing Cars, we hope that smoke effects for drifting and realistic tyre wear will become a greater focus for Forza Motorsport when it launches in 2023. 

I might need to buy a new console to play it, but it’ll be 100 percent worth it. All of us here at the office are keen to play it.

Friday afternoon office racing, anyone?
