'Forza Motorsport' Will Deliver A Generational Leap in Fidelity, Immersion and Realism With Over 500 cars, Coming Later In 2023

The new Forza Motorsport is a reimagining of the series, immersing you in the spectacle of racing like you’ve never seen before.

Forza Motorsport is a follow-up to 2017’s authentic racing game Forza Motorsport 7.

Every track in Forza Motorsport has been built from the ground up for this generation, while the accuracy of our overhauled physics, the beauty of our cars and tracks, our new dynamic time of day, advanced car damage, and real time ray tracing on track lead to a generational leap in immersion.

Fundamental to Forza Motorsport is the fully dynamic time of day system, which brings tracks to life in stunning detail and like weather, it will be available on every track. Changes in time of day alter ambient temperatures, which, in turn, impacts the track surface temperatures. These track temperature changes will affect the grip of your car, as does rubbering in and weather. These new simulation details add further depth, drama, and dynamics to the racing experience.

The core driving experience has been completely overhauled to take advantage of the power of the Xbox Series consoles. This includes a 48 times improvement in the fidelity of our physics simulation. Based on your feedback, we’ve introduced new features like tire and fuel management, multiple tire compounds, and new in-depth car building to create the ultimate racing playset. This is all brought to life at the trackside pits, where advanced materials and shaders paired with ray tracing bring out incredible detail in the gold heat wrap, anodized aluminum, and carbon fiber. Ray tracing especially shines on engine bays with their complex self-reflection.


In Forza Motorsport, car damage is reproduced down to the individual scratches on the bodywork. There are all-new simulation details in the directionality of damage, how the paint peels away at exposed and raised edges, in the wheel abrasions, and in the dirt build-up. Car damage is a racing reality and has been authentically captured in the new Forza Motorsport.

The all-new Forza Motorsport is the most technically advanced racing game ever made.

At Developer_Direct, Microsoft and turn10 showed off a fresh look at Forza Motorsport and how we’re making the game look real, sound real and feel real through our cars, tracks and audio that deliver a generational leap in fidelity, immersion and realism. Forza Motorsport is coming later this year to Xbox Series X|S, Windows, Steam and Cloud Gaming (Beta) and we’d like to tell you all about it. Buckle up.

Cars Are More Dynamic Than Ever

Forza Motorsport will feature over 500 real-world cars at launch for you to collect, race and customize using more than 800 unique upgrades and custom modifications. We’re also delivering the most modern race cars that we have ever featured on our roster.

In addition to the number of cars, we have also made improvements to how they look by using a spectrophotometer,which captures multiple data points of light behavior on a surface. With this new sourcing technique, our paint models have a more realistic light response across colors, metal flake and gloss levels. Cars now have context-aware damage and dirt buildup that is authentic and unique to each vehicle, gathering more in the low-pressure areas like recesses and alcoves.

We’re also creating a more fun and rewarding driving experience thanks to the advances we’ve made in our physics simulation, which are greater than Forza Motorsport 5, 6, and 7 combined.

Enhanced Tracks and New Locations

Forza Motorsport will start with 20 environments featuring multiple track layouts for players to master. In addition to fan favorites, you can race on five all-new-to-Motorsport locations including our first in South Africa – Kyalami. Because of the level of detail that went into the tracks through photogrammetry and laser scanned images, the team was able to depict 10 times more realistic detail including highly detailed vegetation and overgrowth. With all the cutting-edge visuals, including tens of thousands of fully animated 3D spectators, each player will feel immersed in the spectacle of racing.

Also new to Forza Motorsport, the game will have dynamic time of day with weather including track temperatures, wet driving surfaces and rubbering in for each track so that no two laps ever play the same. With all of the new features and detail in our track environments, Forza Motorsport will be a generationally new experience with a truly incredible level of authenticity.

More Immersive Sound Experience

We also partnered with Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos to create a more immersive audio composition for this next generation of Forza Motorsport. Each audio system was rebuilt to create an immersive soundscape and deliver a new level of sonic depth and authenticity to our players. For Forza Motorsport, this is a legacy spanning 20 years of ongoing development, and we continue to utilize the most up-to-date technology to enhance our car sounds at the highest fidelity possible. This includes improved tire and suspension audio, as well as exhausts and turbos that change as they’re modified to sound like their real-world counterparts. New features like our regional track announcer will allow players to hear experiences in the game like never before.  

This is just a small peek inside for what is to come later this year.

Forza Motorsport is coming to Xbox Series X|S and PC in 2023.
