Turn 10's Bill Giese revealed the audiovisual enhancements planned for Forza Motorsport 7, including one that will only be available on Xbox One X.
Excited to get my hands this.
Hyped for this
I have to be that guy and say that no matter what improvements they put in this, It'll never hold up to the Forza Horizon games. Interesting new feature though, hopefully it'll work out well and not have too big of an impact on systems, particularly that of the Xbox One X.
Different type of racer, both can be good.
I personally think the Horizon games are just as bad as Drive Club, if not worse. I've got almost 800hrs invested into Forza 6, and I can't even tolerate 5 minutes worth of Horizon 2 or 3.
DriveClub was terrible. It was pretty and that’s it. Horizons at least has replay value and diversity. And more cars. And more events. And better physics nd more tuning... and customizing, and social features.... and just about everything else.... including a great licensed soundtrack.
The only thing they have in common is the game engine and the brand. Everything else is different. Horizons is an arcade racer and Motorsport is meant to be realistic with real tracks - for people like me who love racing and cars in real life and want to recreate the experiences at home.
Horizons has the same game engine and in depth engine tuning and simulation options as Forza Motorsport. Horizons is the same game but different level design and events. The car handling is identical. It's not an arcade racer and as much as a sim as Motorsport. Just with a fun landscape design.
Drive Club was not "terrible". Stop drinking drugs. Whats your PSN gamer tag so I can look up how much Drive Club you actually played?
Yeah but the casual fanbase that are the xbox owners dont know that
Maybe your personal. It'll be a cold day in hell when a racing game actual gets a GOTY award.
Well, it is a niche, but it's a pretty large niche.
@Obscure_Observer Best Racing award =/= GOTY
I think he meant a racing game winning GOTY,not a racing game wimning Racing game of the year.
Obscure_Observer so "Best Racing" award is GOTY?
Maybe the xbox1 will finally have a goty. But it's going against some stiff competition.
Wonder when the demo is going release? If it can out do Assetto Corsa's racing mechanics I might pick it up.
It won't. Assetto Corsa is more of a hardcore sim compared to Forza.
Project CARS is too. Forza is better than GT at this point though, much better, and definitely my pick.
How is GT relevant to my comment?
You know this because you have played Forza 7?
Don't need to. Assetto Corsa targets people looking for the most realistic experience, Forza focuses on providing more realism than arcade racers while offering a better game experience than hardcore sims like Assetto Corsa.
I'm hoping it gets proper Dolby Atmos treatment too. I know Gears 4 is getting that patched in later this year.
Just from the E3 video clips, you can hear how great the sound is in this game.
«Increased grass density», lol. Thats cool.
Your comment reminds me of gta 5's grassgate😬
there were huge fights because of grass!!! one version got more then another!!!!
I thought grassgate was Mafia II?
Ziggurcat I don't know about mafia 2 but there were heated arguements about gta 5's ps4 version having a higher density of grass than x1's and how much it mattered or didn't matter, depending on which side of the fence gamers were.XD
Grass gate really Started with RDR on 360/PS3. Or maybe Bush Gate ?
It seems there have been multiple grassgates in the past, but gta 5 is the only one i personally remember.
Don't stop there... *dynamic image-based lighting *dynamic HDR skies *dynamic cube mapping *improved particle effects *ambient occlusion Now this really does sound cool! Especially when you add in 4k textures and downsampling 😎
Hooking up my headphones and my wheel to the Xbox for this.
Gonna have to buy a new wheel myself before it's out, any tips?
The Logitech G920 is what I got. Force feedback and solid build. If your budget is limited,the Thrustmaster Spider will get the job done so long as you set it properly. The material is cheaper so you might only have it for a couple of years.
These games are amazing
Sounds great, though Im a bit concened that they said nothing about Dolby Atmos implementation. That would be incredible for Forza. Have birds, blowing trees, planes, etc... coming out of the atmos height speakers, which would carry over the listeners head... making it feel as if they are truly above the listener, all around them. Atmos is incredible when implemented correctly.
Dolby Atmos is now supported system wide with the headphones at least, so tehre's that.
It is supported system wide for home theatre too, but it still needs devs use object-based sound and height channels.
I wonder what sort of features Microsoft will be keeping exclusive to Xbox, instead of sharing the love with PC...
Getting the full game is good enough for PC gamers. MS have already said they wanted Xbox gamers to feel like first class citizens in their ecosytem. So this is probably what they meant by that.
A Paywall for online maybe?
So, anyone up for estimsting sales?
100 million copies at launch
If only Forza Horizon 4 was a launch game.
"We want players to see, hear and feel the explosive power of motorsport. For all 700 cars the instrumentation clusters are going to rattle, windshield wipers and mirrors vibrate – it’s that feeling of the car at its peak." Interesting. I'm not seeing or hearing anything like that in this latest gameplay footage of the game in action... https://www.youtube.com/wat... It seems to look, sound and play the same as Forza 6, which isn't a bad thing, but I expected there to be a lot more improvements in the visuals and sound departments.
Please don't be this stupid
Yall got no choice but 2 be hype 4 this as x box truly has nothing else 2 look forward 2 lol so many delays not to mention cancels ontop of cancels lol better hope the all powerful X doesn't get delayed as well!!!!!! Now that will be something ._.
Why don't they ever talk about the regular xbox1. The console is getting cheap enough for me to buy one but I feel like it is being left behind and forgotten.
Gonna be epic. First game for my one x specifically (if I can ever pre-order the damn thing).
I'm willing to bet that it'll be put up for pre-order immediately following their presentation at gamescom on Sunday.
Ffs I want the Xbox one now. Made the wrong choice of having a baby at the same time haha. Looking forward to forza 7 love 6 and still play it but this sounds like the next step looking forward to it love the work pg and tune 10 do
No HDR on pc...damn!!!
So forza 7 will only take advantage of cube mapping and no other racing game? This article is dumb, misleading, and pointless. You know what else was pointless? Drivatars. The ai in forza games are terrible.
