Never-before-seen images from the highly anticipated Forza Motorsport have surfaced online. The leaked images showcase the RS3 LMS Touring Car navigating the rain-soaked Maple Valley circuit, accompanied by a captivating home space shot.
While the origin of these images remains uncertain, there is a possibility that they could be part of the long-awaited Dev Flight event. A tweet from user IdleSloth84 revealed that a Forza Motorsport Dev Flight is scheduled for this week. According to the tweet, the exclusive test will last for just one day, spanning approximately three hours, and will be accessible solely to Quality Assurance testers.
Dev Flights are typically closed testing phases that allow developers to gather valuable feedback and fine-tune the game before its public release.
Despite the leak, there has been no official statement from the developers, Turn 10 Studios or Microsoft, regarding the authenticity of the images or the Dev Flight event.
It’s important to note that while these leaked images may whet the appetite of fans, they represent only a tiny glimpse of what Forza Motorsport has in store.
Forza Motorsport is scheduled for release on October 10, 2023. The game will be available on both Xbox Series X|S and PC platforms. An exciting announcement for Xbox Game Pass subscribers is that the game will be included in the service from day one, allowing players to experience the thrill of racing without any additional cost.
Forza Motorsport 2023 will introduce an enhanced simulation engine with tire physics sampled at six points per tire and eight times more samples per second than Forza Motorsport 7, resulting in 48 times more accurate physics calculations per tire.
New gameplay additions include selectable tire compounds, tire and fuel management, and a ‘car-building’ system for extensive mechanical customization. The multiplayer mode will have significant upgrades, offering full free-practice sessions and qualifying options, along with real calendar-based race times.
During the Xbox Developer Direct in January 2023, Forza Motorsport showcased its technical marvels, making it the “most technically advanced racing game ever made.” The game features ray-tracing and customizable features, surpassing the advancements of Forza Motorsport 5, 6, and 7 combined.
The game features an impressive lineup of meticulously rendered cars, focusing on modern vehicles and motorsport. Players can expect iconic models like the 2019 McLaren Senna GTR and the 1991 Le Mans-winning Mazda 787B alongside marques such as Ferrari, Mercedes, Audi, Aston Martin, Chevrolet, and Porsche.
It will have an upgraded damage system, visibly denting and scratching car bodywork during collisions, enhancing realism without extensive mechanical damage. The game utilizes real-time ray-tracing for breathtaking reflections and globally-illuminated ray-traced lighting during non-gameplay scenes.
