Forza Motorsport 7 coming soon, official trailer released (video)

With the upcoming releases of Need For Speed: Payback and Gran Turismo Sport, Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios have decided not to cop it lying down, with the announcement of Forza Motorsport 7 at the E3 event.

Previewed at the event where the Porsche 911 GT2 RS was unveiled, and the next-gen Xbox One X console on which it will be available, Forza Motorsport 7 looks to push the boundaries of graphics and gameplay to hitherto unseen levels.

New features include 4K capable graphics, 30 racing environments including proper drag racing and drifting, with more than 200 ribbons, extra driver personalisation and dynamic weather during races.

The new Xbox One X was developed under codename Project Scorpio by Microsoft, and runs at 60-70 per cent capacity and 60 frames per second while playing FM7. Comparatively, the existing Xbox One runs at 1080p/60 frames per second. Racing is said to be more ‘immersive and dynamic’ with more parameters, such as tyre temperature, adding to the realistic physics.

Check out the trailer below before the game is released in late 2017. Some of the cars to be featured in the game are listed below as well.
