The Forza Motorsport reboot is geared up to be the biggest and best yet in the long-running Xbox-exclusive racing series.
During a June 2022 Xbox and Bethesda Showcase, it was announced that Forza Motorsport would be coming to PC and Xbox Series X|S. What’s more, it would also be a reboot of the series.
Could Forza Motorsport come to Xbox One?
Since that time, news has been quiet on the FM reboot front with Microsoft shifting its focus to Forza Horizon 5. There were rumours in May 2022 that the Forza reboot might be headed to Xbox One. However, those rumours should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Thankfully, we got to see more of Forza Motorsport during this week’s Xbox Developer Direct event. We think it’s fair to say that this reboot is shaping up to be the best entry in the series. During the presentation, we were treated to a six-minute developer deepdive.
Developers Turn 10 Studios said that Forza Motorsport will feature over 500 wonderfully crafted cars. Over 100 of which will be new to the series. Each and every car will be created with in-depth detail not only from how the cars look and perform but right down to the sound of the tyres burning rubber.
Could this be the best-looking racer ever?
Moreover, not only will the reboot feature over 500 cars to collect, but there will also be over 800 unique upgrades as well as 20 environments, each featuring multiple track layouts.
Furthermore, on Xbox Series X as well as high-end PCs, Forza Motorsport will be playable with ray-traced global illumination at a full 4K resolution and 60FPS. What’s more, in terms of what this reboot has to offer, the developers claim that it will be bigger than Forza Motorsport 5, 6, and 7 combined.
As exciting as it was to learn more about Forza Motorsport during the deepdive, we didn’t see any of the single player campaign or multiplayer offerings. I guess those details will be saved for a later date. However, the developers did tease that the reboot will feature a “car building focused single-player career mode”.
When is the Forza Motorsport release date?
At this time, the release date for Forza Motorsport wasn’t revealed, other than that it will release in 2023. However, we at least know that it will be released for PC and Xbox Series X|S.
