There’s gonna be a lot of GAAS burned with this reboot

1Victor1108d ago (Edited 1108d ago )

Really it’s kind of obvious it’s supposed to be better than previous generation at least graphically, unless it’s all just hype and look like the infamous halo and Greg demo but I highly doubt Microsoft would do something like that with cardboard box trees

F0XH0UND9221108d ago

I agree with Flavor. Game is gonna be riddled with MXT and service based junk.

OptimusDK1108d ago

Why do you care. Are you gonna play it on PlayStation?

Source?

Adding new tracks and cars, is not gaas, it is called DLC.

"In the video game industry, games as a service (GaaS) represents providing video games or game content on a continuing revenue model, similar to software as a service."

There is no monthly fee, and there is not a continuing revenue model, therefore it is not GAAS.

I believe this game will show what the Series X can really do. With the time they had, Forza Motorsport will be the showcase of the Series X. I think the gameplay trailer at e3 will be amazing.

It's the king of Racers. I'm looking forward to see how my RTX 3080 will handle it

PunksOnN4G1108d ago

King of Racers lol... Plz GT is an Olympic sport the other is an arcade racer nice try though

CaptainHenry9161108d ago (Edited 1108d ago )

There was a time when GT was on top but not anymore. Forza is better now

medman1108d ago (Edited 1108d ago )

Some people prefer GT, others Forza. What cannot be downplayed is the fact GT is still tied closely to the FIA, and gamers have gotten FIA racing licenses and professional racing careers started all from playing Gran Turismo. That is impressive no matter how you look at it. I enjoy them both, tbh. I prefer the more open Forza Horizon to Motorsport, and Gran Turismo was my first love in racing games (well not really, I think my first loves were pole position and rc pro am, but I digress) so GT will always be a game I play.

@medman

Those are all things of the past.

Forza is just better now. GT7 may be competitive again. but RN Forza is the king, no contest.

medman1108d ago (Edited 1108d ago )

Things of the past resonate more than things of the present. You're talking about all time games, all time experiences. Meanwhile, what racing game of the past 10 years will stand the test of time and be remembered like the "things of the past", as you put it? Those games were revolutionary, whereas the racing games of today are evolutionary. Major difference. 10 years from now, the racing games will put 2021 games to shame....but the classics will still be classics, and still remembered, unlike the every 3-4 year evolutions happening today.

iRacing says hi. King of arcade-sim racers maybe.

Better tire simulation, different kerbs (?), soft, medium, and hard tire compounds (?), and different track temperatures.

OK, but not convinced that is a huge leap.

Also, author needs to proofread or learn how to use apostrophes.

Obscure_Observer1109d ago

"OK, but not convinced that is a huge leap."

According with Chris Esaki himself, from Forza Motorsport 1 to 7 the tires had only 1 collision point with the track and operated in a 60 Hz frequency.

Now with the new FTech X Engine and its rewritten physics model, the tires now have 8 points of contact with the track, and work at a frequency of 360 Hz, bringing in raw numbers, about 40x more physical fidelity in the tire/asphalt ratio.

It´s gonna be a true next gen racing experience!

Can´t wait to see what innovations the competition will bring to compete. ;)

RaidenBlack1109d ago

They named the new one FTech X?

Knushwood Butt1109d ago

Like I wrote in another thread, I want full VR.

Obscure_Observer1109d ago (Edited 1109d ago )

@RaidenBlack

"They named the new one FTech X?"

Yes. Also, FTech X is the same engine powering another insanely looking amazing game:

Oh yes! Almost forgot FTech X will also be powering another very anticipated Action Open World RPG from another Team of Racing Masters:

HOLDERofFOOD1108d ago

Can you explain to me how 8 points of contact with the road will effect gameplay? Already feels pretty realistic. To me the way the title hyped physics I expect incredible collisions and vehicle damage, not tire to asphalt points of contact.

@DarthMarvin: What last gen hardware? The new Forza Motorsport is confirmed to be only on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Windows 10 PCs, with no Xbox One support.

ScootaKuH1108d ago

Numbers are great and all, but will the game actually feel any different to play? I doubt it

DJStotty1106d ago

@DarthMarvin

"both being cross-gen is super disappointing."

Gotta try and spread that false info to justify GT7 being cross-gen right?

Sorry to offend you, i really am, but there is currently zero Xbox One support in the works for Forza Motorsport.

Next-gen goodness only.

“ Like I wrote in another thread, I want full VR.”

MS doesn’t produce their own VR headset like Sony and you know that. So there is very little chance that this game would get any VR mode. I’d rather they focus their development on something else rather than VR for this iteration.

yeahokwhatever1108d ago

Forza will be on PC, and that has lots of VR options.

porkChop1108d ago

I mean they have WMR, but that's pretty dead. The launch headsets just weren't that great and people skipped them for Oculus and the like.

Knushwood Butt1108d ago

Fair enough but I was replying specifically to what Obscure wrote.

'Can´t wait to see what innovations the competition will bring to compete.'.

If you want something else, I want a fully recreated Targa Florio event.
