4K enabled racing game wants you to challenge the elements. The 919’s starring role in the trailer is apparently part of a new six-year partnership between Forza and Porsche.
Game developers spent years mastering the art of recreating cars in crisp, clean detail. Forza Motorsport 7’s artists have turned their attention to making the cars as filthy as possible. Take this Le Mans-winning Porsche 919 from the game’s stunning new trailer, which has been thoroughly sandblasted by the UAE’s Jebel Hafeet Mountain Road.
Forza 7 itself is looking spectacular, running on Microsoft’s newly revealed Xbox One X, a 4K Ultra HD-capable version of the Xbox One that produces graphics so sharp you could slice your finger open on them. You’ll be thankful for that extra detail though when you’re desperately squinting for the apex in the middle of a biblical rainstorm. For the first time in the series, Forza 7 will feature dynamic rather than static weather, meaning storms will roll in, drenching the circuit and forcing you to scramble for the pit lane for a new set of boots.
You will also get the full driver customization, which allows you to create as garnish a race suit and helmet as your fevered imagination can conjure, 30 international locations to race in and over 700 cars packed into the game at launch.
Forza Motorsport 7 will be released on October 3rd, but until then why not just rewatch that spectacular trailer over and over again?
