FORZA MOTORSPORT: TURN 10 UPDATE ON RESOLUTION AND FRAMERATE, XBOX ONE VERSION CONFIRMED?
As expected, the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase – which took place on June 12 – allowed us to get to know more about the next Forza Motorsport in development at Turn 10. Obviously, the first quality of the game will be visual. “In Forza Motorsport, vehicle damage is displayed in great detail, down to the tiniest scratch on your bodywork,” said Creative Director Chris Esaki. You’ll see which direction the damage came from, paint chipping off at the most exposed edges, wheel abrasion and dust accumulating. Damage is part of the reality of motor racing and has been faithfully reproduced in the new Forza Motorsport. […] All of these things come to life at the stand, where advanced materials and shading combine with ray tracing to show off the incredible detail of gold tapes, anodized aluminum and carbon fiber. Ray tracing especially works wonders on engines and their intricate reflections.”
As part of an FAQ, Turn 10 gave an update on the framerate of Forza Motorsport: on Xbox Series X, the game will run in 4K 60fps, while on Xbox Series S, we will be entitled to 1080p 60fps. Interesting detail: the developers do not refute the existence of an Xbox One version, which seems to go in the direction of the latest rumors. It is also specified that there will be a way to select the time as well as the time of day. Finally, we are reminded that the game will be released in the spring of 2023 – including on PC – and that it will be available day one on the Xbox Game Pass.

Forza Motorsport: Turn 10 ambitions
4K, ray-tracing activated in the race, many cars, damage management, dynamic lighting, day / night cycle, realistic environments… Turn 10 has big ambitions and wants to make Forza Motorsport a representative of next-gen capabilities. The single player mode has been redesigned, the multiplayer will include real races taking place throughout the weekends, and ray-tracing has been confirmed to be present during races and not just on replays or screenshots. Forza Motorsport Creative Director Chris Esaki said that the simulation would be deep from a physical point of viewbut that the “Forza sensations” will always be there.
Fluidity or resolution, the studio has made its choice
But how will Forza Horizon turn out, knowing that Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S do not have the same capabilities ? Last week, a FAQ was posted on the official Forza Motorsport website, allowing us to glean some information, but many questions, such as the location, the Xbox One release or the number of cars are currently displaying a “stay tuned” sign. However, one of the questions got an answer. So we now know that Turn 10 has chosen fluidity !
It is obviously out of the question to reduce driving sensations with 30 frames per second, so it is at 60 fps that Forza Motorsport will run, whether on Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S. On the other hand, and as one might suspect, it is only on Xbox Series X that the title will display a resolution in 4K. On Xbox Series S, players will have to settle for 1080p solid.
Will not run at 4K/60 FPS on all consoles
A few days ago, Microsoft revealed a new video of Forza Motorsport expected for 2023 on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Today, developer Turn 10 reveals new information that will not please all players…
Although the output of Forza Motorsport is not planned before spring 2023the developers at Turn10 had revealed a lot of information during the last video with 4k graphics, ray-tracing activated even in races, a day / night cycle or even increased “simulation” driving.
Words that quickly delighted the players who were pleased with the choice of Turn 10 to have abandoned cross-generational to release a game using the power of the “Xbox Series”! Nevertheless, the latest words from the firm will not please everyone, because it indicates that there will be a big difference between the version Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X.
In effect, Turn 10 favors fluidity and the game will not be in 3840 x 2160 pixel (4k) resolution on all Xbox Series … Nevertheless, Forza Motorsport will run at 60 frames per second on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
Here is the resolution and framerate of each console:
