Leaked photos claim to show Forza Motorsport 8 running on Xbox One | VGC

Pictures claiming to show the next Forza Motorsport game running on the latest generation of the Xbox One console have surfaced online.

The pictures were posted on Subreddit r / gamingleaksandrumours on Saturday and reportedly confirmed by the site’s moderators as legitimate.

So far, the next Forza Motorsport has only been announced for Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox Series S and X consoles, though most of its first-party games to date have been cross-gen consoles and PC titles.

If they are authentic, it is possible that the images came from one of the closed tests that the developer Turn 10 has held for the race. It is possible that the last generation version has only been included as part of this test, as Turn 10 claimed that it only provided “parts” of the new game.

It would be surprising if a cross-gene version was planned, given Turn 10’s earlier claims that its next game would deliver “a giant generational leap” for the racing series.

Creative director Chris Esaki claimed last summer that the play tests Turn 10 had held gave players a sense of how the studio had gone about “renewing and deepening” the franchise’s physics and core game.

“To put the physics work in perspective for everyone, the changes we’ve made from Forza Motorsport 7 so far are more than the changes we’ve made from Motorsport 4 to 7, so it’s basically a big generational leap. played, “he said.

According to Esaki, the tire collision model in all previous Forza Motorsport games had a single point of contact with the surface of the track and was updated at about 60 cycles per second, or 60 Hz. The new model has eight contact points with the track surface and runs at 360 cycles per second, or 360 Hz.

“So if you do the math there, it’s a 48x fidelity jump in a single tire collision in itself, so there’s just a huge amount of work out there that’s just really paid off for us,” Esaki said.

Forza Motorsport for the Xbox Series X was announced in the summer of 2020 and described as “a re-creation” of the series. At the time, Turn 10 creative director Dan Greenawalt told Xbox.com that the game was in early development.
