Hyper-realistic Forza Motorsport 7 revealed

Forza has been quite prominent in the automotive world lately and, while some of this is because of its partnership with Porsche, it’s mostly due to the incredible realism present in the simulation.

With a release date of October 3, four months away, Forza Motorsport 7 will be the newest addition to the lineup of top-end simulators produced by Turn 10 Studios.

The game will feature over 700 cars, with dynamic weather and road conditions, plus the developer says the game will be realistic to the point that cars rattle and vibrate.

Speaking to PC Gamer, Forza creative director at Turn 10 Bill Giese said the game has been re-built, rather than being an update to the previous version.

“We’ve rebuilt Forza Motorsport 7 from the ground up to really recreate that feeling of driving a car at peak,” Giese said.

“We have over 700 cars, and every single one is going to rattle and shake. It’s gonna scare the crap out of you.”

It’ll run with 4K (ultra HD) graphics, and have an unlocked framerate.

During the announcement, it was also revealed that the dynamic weather effects will be so detailed as to amass progressively larger puddles on the track if it’s raining heavily in game.

For those without monstrously powerful computers, the game’s low-end running requirements have been softened to allow more people to play the game properly.

It’s also compatible with numerous USB devices for PC users. Giese added that Turn 10 even tested the game on a Guitar Hero guitar, and a DDR pad.

We’d stick with a wheel though.
