Does anyone know if Horizon 4 brings the graphics level up to Motorsport 7 or is it a next step beyond?

Track racing has very few elements compared with all the stuff you see in Horizon so probably not. It's going to look like H3 maybe slightly better.

Digital Foundry on the E3 demo:
Quote:
The demo begins during Autumn, with crimson trees and a low hanging sun shining across the world. Long shadows are cast while specular highlights on the road surface help to increase the sense of depth. This is combined with the top-notch motion blur and what seems to be an improved materials system, resulting in a more striking presentation. When the game jumps to Winter, tyre tracks are left behind, as the vehicles realistically carve up the snow. This looks great but honestly, it's the indirect lighting that is most striking in this sequence: the mix of realistic snow rendering, beautifully lit particles and great reflection work combine to deliver a sensational presentation.

Following Winter, we're given a look at Spring time in a scene reminiscent of Horizon 3, featuring a rich forest with detailed foliage, realistic puddles and mud along with nice rain particles. Lastly, there's the Summer mode, which is obviously bright and sunny and should be a great showcase for the title's HDR support.

Horizon 3 has graphics equal to or better than Forza 7 already so it stands to reason that Horizon 4 will be just as good. Forza 7's scenery is pretty last gen compared to 5 and 6. The trees look like cardboard cutouts unlike Horizon 3 which has more realistic trees that move with the weather.

Agreed, lots of cardboard stuff! If you really wanna be freaked out, go to the bathurst and on the back stretch go into photo mode and zoom in on the bystanders. Those 3D models are freaky!
Forza junkie since FM2. Horizons are the break I need from the track. 🏁🏁

FH4 and I have a volatile love/hate relationship 😑

Hopefully FH5 will treat me better 😬😬

The only thing that FH3 does better than FM7 is the environment. to make the game run at 60FPS in Forza 7, they have to have 2D Trees which are essentially 2 intersecting planes of a 2D sprite, making them look 3D from a distance, but look really bad up close. I don't think most of these 2D trees cast shadows either in FM7. The textures of 2D environments in FM7 are also pretty poor. Crowds are 2D too in FM7 but 3D in Horizon I believe. Horizon also has a lot more effects in general especially environmental effects. Bare in mind the game runs at 30FPS too so it should look better in general than FM7. FH3 also has a fully dynamic time of day. So you get more interesting lighting conditions too.

In short, the games are pretty much neck and neck but FH4 should look better than FM7 for sure. However in 60FPS mode, who knows. It might be very even then.

They are constantly centered on the camera and rotate as you move about.

YEEEEESSSSSSS! That tripped me out the first time I saw. I dont spend time taking pics unless something catches my eye while i'm racing or its part of an achievement. Too see those cutouts follow the camera was creepy hahaha

FM7 on XB1X is full 4K. FH3 on XB1X is simply enhanced 4K. I am sure that FH4 on XB1X will be full 4K.

Ummmm .... no. FH3 on the OneX is native full 4K with no dynamic scaling or checkerboarding .... just like FM7 on the OneX.
