Forza Motorsport 8 has just dropped.
Gamers have waited six years for the latest installment of the franchise, so needless to say excitement had reached fever pitch.
A clip shared online of gameplay from the racing title shows that it’s definitely been worth the wait too.
The clip shared by Niko Mueller on X is outrageously realistic.
So much so, it’s being mistaken for real-life footage – but that’s kind of the point.
Xbox Game Studios, which has collaborated with Turn 10 Studios, set out to make Forza Motorsport 8 the most realistic racing simulator to date.
In order to achieve that, the game boasts a completely overhauled game engine, refined physics, a robust multiplayer mode, and an impressive lineup of cars.
From a technical standpoint, Forza Motorsport 8 sets a new benchmark for the series.
One of the standout features of the game is its Artificial Intelligence (AI) system, which is notoriously difficult to implement effectively in racing games.
But in Forza Motorsport 8, AI adds a new level of realism to the racing experience.
What’s more, AI provides challenging opponents that adapt to the player’s skill level and racing style.
Irrespective of whether you’re a novice or a seasoned pro, the AI will push you to your limits, ensuring an engagement and competitive gameplay experience.
The game also offers an extensive range of customization options, meaning players can fine-tune their cars, experiment with different setups, and optimize their performance on track.
But where Forza Motorsport 8 really stands out are the photrealistic graphics it uses.
They showcase stunningly detailed environments, immersive sound design, and dynamic weather effects, further enhancing the realism and immersion of the gameplay experience.
And clearly people like what they see, judging by their comments on social media.
“That is pretty insane tbf,” one user commented.
I’m sold,” another posted.
“Damn,” a third said.
With its realistic physics, revamped AI, and impressive visuals, Forza Motorsport 8 is sure to captivate racing enthusiasts and solidify its position as king of competitive racing.
