Forza Motorsport 6 is speeding into the homes of Xbox One racing enthusiasts extremely soon and heralded as the “best racing game” during Gamescom 2015. In two weeks, Forza Motosport 6 will be available to download for owners of the Ultimate Edition and consumers opting for the standard version will gain access 5 days later. Turn 10 Studios has scheduled a demo for September 1st to whet your appetite and revolves around the iconic Ford GT. Rather surprisingly, downloading the demo allows you to keep this vehicle and use it in the full game for free.
As an authentic racing simulator, it’s imperative to hone the physics system, and create a smooth, realistic experience. Forza Motorsport 6 runs at a native resolution of 1920×1080 and 60fps. As a result, the driving is extremely fluid whilst emphasizing the Xbox One’s visual capabilities. In total, there are 460 cars to choose from and the latest additions include:
2015 Mercedes-AMG GT S
1979 BMW #6 BMW Motorsport M1 Procar
2015 Volvo S60 Polestar
2014 Audi #45 Flying Lizard Motorsports R8 LMS ultra
2014 BMW #5 Ebay Motors 125i M Sport
2014 Chevrolet #3 Corvette Racing Corvette C7.R
2015 Jaguar XKR-S GT
1976 Lotus #5 Team Lotus 77
1969 Lola #10 Simoniz Special T163
2014 Ferrari California T
The full 460 car list is available via Forzamotorsport.net and there’s bound to be something to suit even the most die-hard motorsport aficionados. Personally, I was fairly disappointed with the complete lack of content in Forza Motorsport 5 and hope this was due to time constraints surrounding the Xbox One’s launch. Over the years, Forza has established itself as a superb racing game and not just a clone of Gran Turismo. In fact, Forza’s physics model, interior renders and engine noises are vastly superior to Gran Turismo’s latest efforts.
