Microsoft have revealed a new television ad today to celebrate Forza Motorsport 6. Celebrating 40 years of the evolution of racing games, it takes a nostalgic look back at a selection of games through the years ending of course with Forza itself.
As a racing fan, I can’t help but enjoy this video and even recognised some of the games on show. Featuring Gran Trak 10, Pole Position, PC Pro Am, Chase HQ, and Ridge Racer we also see the 2017 Ford GT as it races its way through all the games.
While some would argue that there are better racing games than Forza, as this is an Xbox One focused advert it should be expected that Microsoft show Forza Motorsport 6 off as the fully realised evolution of racing games. Whether it will live up to these claims will have to be seen on the games release.
Revealing the trailer on his website, Major Nelson also revealed that the ad could be seen during the Formula One Italian Grand Prix this weekend.
Featuring 460 cars, 26 race tracks and an all-new 70+ hour career mode, it will be no surprise if the game sells well. Coming September 15, a demo is available to download now. If you play the demo before you buy the full game you’ll also find that the Ford GT is delivered free to your garage when the game is released. That seems like a good incentive to at least give the demo a try, especially if you already plan on purchasing the game.
