Microsoft has made great promises around the Xbox Series X hardware, and unfortunately, in the event of Thursday has not seen one iota of what the console is capable of offering despite its 12 TFLOPs of power and its SSD backed by Xbox Velocity Architecture technology. Although the event has not helped him at all in regards to someone wanting to buy his console, at least they will get new users for the future Xbox Game Pass, and that is that all the games shown will be integrated into the paid subscription from the first day of launch.
Until now, any user who has a PC, and thinks about replacing it, have not seen a single incentive or reason to buy an Xbox Series X, and that is that 90% of the announced games will be playable on PC through Xbox Game Pass, but Forza Motorsport could turn things around and show what we could expect in the future.
According to Phil Spencer, on the official Xbox blog, this title will not only arrive at a native 4K resolution @ 60 FPS on the console, but it will do it with RayTracing activated, so we would be looking at the first game that really takes advantage of everything console hardware to offer a differentiating title to others, which is what Microsoft really needs to show.
“One studio that has always pushed the limits of our hardware is Turn 10 Studios. They are in the early stages of development for the next Forza Motorsport, and the Xbox Series X brings them closer to their dream of unprecedented realism with RayTracing. rays) and native 4K resolution, all at 60 frames per second. “
That it says ” early stages of development ” is not good news, since it implies that this game will not be together with the launch of the console. If we add that it will not reach the original Xbox One / X, then we are facing one of those precious games designed exclusively for the new generation of the console, allowing them to focus and squeeze single hardware.
“The new installment of Forza Motorsport — currently in an early stage of development — is a reinvention of the series. We are taking what has made Forza Motorsport incredible for the past 15 years and integrating it with new game concepts and technologies.
With the new Forza Motorsport, ray tracing is coming to ForzaTech, allowing you to enjoy a dynamic world in 4K at 60fps, fully connected! From reflective vehicle surfaces to bright red paint bouncing off surfaces of highly detailed tracks, as well as the increased interplay of light and shadow worldwide. Developed by Turn 10 Studios, Forza Motorsport will be available on Xbox Series X, Windows 10 and Xbox Game Pass. “
