  • Interesting. I imagine this could mean needing to drive the roasting variant of the race car for a certain time/distance/affinity level to unlock the race car.

    Really makes you wonder what T10 considers as "launch."

    Is it really "700 cars and 32 tracks on Sept 29" or "there might be 700 cars and 32 tracks over the next 2 years depending on the size of the community"?

    Forza Motorsport Demo – Hoonigan Sneak Peek
    Last week I was sent on a mission to the Donut Garage, workplace and tire-shredding headquarters for the Hoonigans. These boys build incredible vehicles and host guests from the motorsport and car culture world, usually inviting them to reap havoc upon their tires and fill the neighborhood with tire smoke and awesome engine sounds. The school across the street may not appreciate the antics so much, but for gearheads like us, it is an extremely cool place to hang out.

    My mission was to deliver a killer Samsung 4K TV and Alienware PC loaded up with the Forza Motorsport 7 demo, so the Hoonigans could have a sneak peek. After delivering the goods, we had a fun time setting it up and you can see that, along with some rad details on Hert’s Twerkstallion in this episode.

    John Wendl, content director at Turn 10, has been there from the beginning. I played a preview of the game and talked to him about 4K racing at a Microsoft preview event.

    • I played three races in the preview. Is that the progression of the first events?
    • I saw a lot of rain.
    • The driver bodies and animations are new. What would somebody notice about them?
    • In some views you’ll see the character. Do the drivers have physics as well?
    • What do you notice as far as the difference 4K creates in the final product?
    • How big is this project as far as people and time you had to invest in it?
    • Forza is the flagship title for the Xbox One X. How’s that feel?
    • What was the most requested thing [for PC players]?
    • Where would people go to find a big simulation rig like the ones you’ve shown off at E3?
    • You think a certain number of gamers will really go and do that?
    • How big is that as far as the player base?

    It's typically towards the end of the workday.

    The last person out of the office turns out all the lights, stands just outside the doorway, leans forward and presses the submit button with a broomstick and then runs for the parking lot.

    How does Forza 7 improve on Xbox One X over base hardware?
    By David Bierton

    Quote:
    Colour differences aside (and we can't factor out an on-site capture issue on the day), the only real difference between PC and Xbox One X concerns anti-aliasing. On the PC, multi-sampling up to 8x is in play, which provides a crisp presentation with some nicely resolved sub-pixel details. EQAA is used instead on Xbox One X - an AMD specific AA implementation that shares similarities with MSAA. Sub-pixel reproduction isn't quite as good on the One X, but really, outside of the power lines appearing less distinct it's not something that sticks out when viewing on a 4K screen from typical living room viewing distances. The pixel density ensures that both looks reasonably clean and crisp.

    Quote:
    But what about the standard Xbox One version? Well, the good news here is that despite some graphical reductions in a few areas, the game still looks great, with crisp image quality and solid performance. Resolution comes in at native 1080p, while performance is locked at the desired 60fps. Whether bunched up with other cars at the starting grid, or driving through heavy rain, the game never loses its silky smooth 60Hz refresh. The experience remains consistently fluid and responsive throughout, and what's impressive here is that in many areas the visuals are reasonably comparable to PC and Xbox One X.
