So real you can practically smell the exhaust fumes
The very best in stunning 4K entertainment
“So rich is the level of detail that you’ll be able to pick out every last imperfection on the track”
Turn 10’s latest title in its sublime racing series has grown up alongside the Xbox One X, to the point that the team was the first to get a working demo up and running on the new console. The studio’s feedback helped shape the prototype hardware into the final unit, making sure other developers would have everything they need to give their games a noticeable bump in resolution, performance, visual effects or even all of the above.
We’re happy to tell you that it’s that last one in Forza’s case – the One X delivers native 4K resolution and enhanced visuals without sacrificing the series’ 60fps standard, making it the most realistic racing game yet seen on consoles.
But it’s not just about everything looking crisper and prettier – that visual upgrade can actually serve a purpose on a gameplay level, too. So rich is the level of detail that you’ll be able to pick out every last imperfection on the track, see upcoming bends in full detail long before you reach them, or be better able to gauge car handling simply by judging exactly how it behaves as you scream into or accelerate out of a corner. There’s power left to spare in the console even after all of this, so Turn 10 has decided to put this to use with full dynamic weather, presenting even more opportunities for jawdropping moments as well as actual gameplay evolution as well – an untimely downpour might change the dynamics of a race in an instant, presenting constant and everchanging decisions about whether sticking to the drenched racing line or erring on the side of caution and avoiding puddles on unforgiving curves might work best. Racing games simply don’t get any more lifelike than this.
