Forza Motorsport will include the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit, developer Turn 10 Studios announced in its recent gameplay deep dive during the Xbox Developer Direct showcase. The impressive visuals were displayed in the new extensive gameplay video showing races in the Kyalami Circuit. This will be the first time that South Africa has been represented in the Motorsport series.
Xbox’s gameplay deep dive of the upcoming Forza Motorsport was one of the highlights of the recent Developer Direct showcase. According to Turn 10 Studios, it will be “the most technically advanced racing game ever” when it releases later this year.
More details were also revealed about the latest entry in the long-running Forza Motorsport series. It will feature over 500 real-world cars with 800 unique upgrades and custom modifications. “We’re also delivering the most modern race cars that we have ever featured on our roster,” said creative director Chris Esaki.
Forza Motorsport will launch with 20 environments containing multiple track layouts. Of the five new locations that will feature in the game, the one that stands out is Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit from South Africa, showing an incredible amount of detail being packed into the familiar raceway.
A lot is happening visually with Forza Motorsport that players may not notice at first glance. Courses will apparently “depict ten times more realistic detail, including highly detailed vegetation and overgrowth,” said Turn 10 Studios. “With all the cutting-edge visuals, including tens of thousands of fully animated 3D spectators, each player will feel immersed in the spectacle of racing.”
The latest trailer for Forza Motorsport mentions that the game will launch later this year on Xbox Series X/S and PC, despite previously targeting a spring 2023 release window. A release date was not officially announced but we can expect to see a lot more of the game in the coming months.
