Looks really good, very impressed with the number of opponents on the course. Sounds like a good candidate for DX12 for the extra CPU processing. I have no doubt this will support the Thrustmaster wheel/pedal set. Not surprised it's taking some time to complete, there's a lot going on in the game.

It's taken 1/1/2 years for a developer to match the 1080p 60fps of the launch game Forza 5

That means the tools and the skills are getting better.

Good to see

EDIT @ I_love_gaming, it means 3rd party developers are starting to get 1st party results.


EDIT 2 @ Unreal01, take a trip back to November 2013 and read ALL the comments about how supposibly EASY it is to get a racing game to run at 1080p 60fps. I'm suggesting that ALL those comments were disingenuous and a bitter response to what Turn10 was able to accomplish, ergo the 2nd highest rated racing game next to FH2. Try "reading those comments" now that it's 18 months later and no 1080p 60fps racers except F5.

I_Love_Gaming888d ago (Edited 888d ago )

Umm if Forza 5 already had 1080p and 60 fps and so does this does that equal to better tools?

This game looks great btw. Thank god for the delay and hopefully this can release in a flawless state for fans. Forza Horizon 2 is something I am more interested in. But the more games the better

I_Love_Gaming888d ago (Edited 888d ago )


Doh! I don't know why I didn't think of that lol

moldybread888d ago

better tools meaning a third party developer managed to get better performance than the typical 900p we often see on the xbox one. not many games manage to hit 60 frames and 1080p on any of the consoles.

plus forza 5 didn't have night racing, weather effects and that many opponents.

Mr Pumblechook887d ago

Previously Slightly Mad Studios said the game was 'slightly less' than 1080p on Xbox One. So I'm wondering if this extra delay was to get the game at 1080p on both consoles for launch?

Pogmathoin887d ago (Edited 887d ago )

Drivelub was just a racing game too.... Ohh, did you never think of that?

@ unreal, I see the digs at Sony too that you mention, but only when the meds wear off.....

vulcanproject887d ago (Edited 887d ago )

I just hope if it is 1080p on Xbox One, it isn't at the cost of performance in the finished game. Solid 60FPS is more important than trying to squeeze full on 1080p. I'm sure I saw screen tearing in this video, and that means frame rate drops as well.

This isn't the final thing, so if they can tidy that up along with any of the AI issues mentioned in the video I'm confident this will be a very smart racer. But let's see.

Angerfist887d ago

It has better Tools because it supports almost 3x more cars on track and has Weather and Day and Night Cycle. But Forza 6 might come up with something big too.

this looks so much better than forza graphically

mhunterjr887d ago (Edited 887d ago )

It does.

On the one hand, forza5 was very clearly a rushed launch title, while This title has had plenty of time in the oven, and is being developed on an improved SDK.

On the other had, Turn10 is a large AAA studio, compared to an independent studio, making a cross platform game. Turn 10 should be setting the bar.

Ultimately, I think the lack of development time and the fact that Xbox developer tools were crap explains why Forza5 visuals are nothing special. I'd be surprised is Forza6 doesn't at least look this good. It SHOULD look better.

forager887d ago

Honestly I think that Forza simulates materials better, as in metal carbon fiber and glass. Idk that's what I'm seeing

XanderZane887d ago

You're right, especially with the weather effects too. Forza 5 wasn't even a completed game. It was obviously a rush game to make launch. Forza 6 is going to blow Forza 5 away. We'll compare that game to Project Cars when it launches this year. Hopefully Forza 6 will be using all the DX12 tools.

emilijo777887d ago

i hope project cars will have night racing, day/night cycles and weather unlike forza 5

Azzanation887d ago

Whats with all the disagrees? Are fanboys jealous that X1 can achieve 1080p? I smell a lot of insecure fanboys on this site.

Good to see PC achieve what FM5 did at launch.

Re-versed887d ago

But still it is sub HD on one whats your point?
Oh!FORZA 5 yes i remember you are talking about a different game they released and a different one they advertized due to heavy downgrade that took place to reach 1080p 60fps

curious to see a ps4/x1 comparo

boodi888d ago

( looking pretty good @1080&60fps here on x1 )

uth11887d ago

It looks like crap on PS4!

(at least according to everyone in the project cars/ps4 footage thread last week.. I thought it looked fine :p. )

ABizzel1887d ago

Well based off the last footage the PS4 had an insignificant edge to most console gamers, but it was running at a higher framerate.

That's all probably gone by now, but the PS4 version might have a slightly more stable framerate, with the XBO having better AO, and the PS4 having some other minor win. Again minor as far as console gamers are concerned.

georgenancy887d ago (Edited 887d ago )

car models look decent,the environment on the other hand looks so low res.
The car physics also looks weird

windblowsagain887d ago

Looks decent, but have to agree with georgenancy, the game physics look weird. Like the cars are not actually on the track type thing.

TheBrownBandito887d ago

The physics look fine. In that view, driving with a controller as is obvious in the clip, you can't realistcally judge them anyway. Real sim enthusiast don't drive in that view. It's way too slow and easier to read the lines, so offers no realism and no real immersion.

Darren at Inside Sim Racing rates them as "proper sim" and that's more than good enough for me.

omarcomingyo887d ago

That guy bores the hell outta me, his videos need perking up big time imo
