Forza is making its big return to next-gen consoles.

Here are all the latest racing sim's details on Xbox Series X and Series S.

Latest News - Forza Motorsport 7 coming to Game Pass

Microsoft is turning Game Pass into the ultimate gaming must-have.

Not only is EA Play getting added, but now Forza Motorsport 7 will be available!

FM7 will enter Xbox Game Pass on 8 October.

Xbox next-gen pre-orders

Priced at £449/$499 for the Series X and £249/$299 for the Series S, and with a release date of 10 November, Microsoft is going to kick-start the next generation of gaming.

Trailer

The Forza Motorsport trailer is here.

While it was a very brief look at Laguna Seca, the game looks promising already.

We've broken down the trailer in greater detail here.

Release date

Unfortunately, we shouldn't expect Forza Motorsport any time soon.

Rumours have put the release at early 2021.

MYSTERY MAN: Will Forza's career mode have more story or be pure driving?

Of course, that's far from official. It could be ready for the Christmas game rush. Hopefully Turn 10 wait for it to be perfect though.

The expectation is that it won't be out as a launch title for the Xbox Series X though.

What's new?

Forza will be Microsoft's competition for Gran Turismo 7 so surely it will have some new features, right?

According to leaks from @IdleSloth84, the new Forza will resemble that of a reboot/reimagining of the mainline Forza series. This will take it back to its more realistic and sim racing roots.

Here's what the new game is rumoured to bring to it:

  • New tyre pressure model
  • Dynamic track temperatures
  • New atmosphere pressure system, affecting air density, dynamics, and power
  • Redesigned suspension system with new modeling
  • New ranked online system
  • New integrated online Ghosting System
  • Tracks have full day and night cycles depending on race length/track
  • Rubber in on tracks
  • New heat interaction with tire pressure
  • Expanded race capacity
  • Off-road racing on land or gravel
  • Rally races will also be present
  • Clubs Return

Cars - Quality over quantity

Some racing games launch with hundreds of cars, only a handful of which are highly accurate and more than a few that feel completely wrong.

It seems that Forza will be going for the "less is more" option when it comes to cars that are available on launch.

DRIFTING: Precise car physics & handling will be key to Forza's success

This is a good direction to go in.

As we've seen from games like Assetto Corsa Competizione, racing titles that focus in on a class or category tend to have a higher quality of driving experience than those that try to represent every car from the 1950s on.

Graphics, physics, & gameplay

Forza Motorsport is expected to stay on the ForzaTech engine.

Of course, it will get an upgrade to take advantage of the amazing specs in the Xbox Series X.

The graphics are of course set to be stunning, but the weather model and day/night cycles will be amazing too.
