Forza Motorsport 2023 Pc (copy)

Microsoft has officially unveiled the first true gameplay of the new, “overhauled” Forza Motorsport.

The next-gen racing simulator will make its return to the track in Spring 2023. With it, Turn 10 Studios is promising to deliver the most “advanced” racing experience “ever,” complete with new levels of graphical fidelity and a further advancement of complex driving mechanics.


More than a new set of wheels

The new Forza Motorsport builds upon the long-standing mechanics of the series by simulating all sorts of different things, including more intricate levels of visual flare and the finer details of the simulation itself.

Advanced car damage, road temperature, different materials for different parts of a vehicle, environmental detail, dynamic time of day, and real-time raytracing, are what the new Forza Motorsport promises to feature wholeheartedly. The goal is to provide a level of detail never before seen in a Forza title that’s beyond what other racing sims have been able to offer.

The complexities of the sim will go down to small details such as how the temperature of the road’s surface will affect a car’s grip. Another detail is how every individual scratch is modeled when cars take damage.

Track days (and nights)

In-game raytracing will offer dynamic reflections and lighting techniques, such as vehicles  reflecting off of one another and producing self-shadowing. All of this will be drenched in a dynamic time of day feature, the first time the series has ever offered it, meaning that a race can start in the late afternoon and end at night. Not only will this change the visuals, but it also pairs with the aforementioned change in surface temperature. Tire and fuel simulation will also be featured, offering more realistic mechanics for sim enthusiasts.

Forza Motorsport will launch on PC via the Microsoft Store, Steam, and Xbox Game Pass/Cloud in Spring 2023. An exact release date has not yet been provided.
