Microsoft hosted a live stream during San Diego Comic Con over the weekend and in that panel, they gave fans a new look at their upcoming racing simulator, Forza Motorsport 7, which also included our first proper preview of the vehicle damage system in the game.
The event was hosted from Entertainment Weekly’s Comic Con party and as expected, a lot of the people present with notable Hollywood personalities with varying degrees of experience when it comes to gaming. Microsoft, however, decided to let these people play Forza Motorsport 7 themselves and it resulted in a pretty funny livestream thanks to the numerous car crashes that occurred.
The Forza Motorsport 7 demo also featured the brand new Porsche GT2 RS on the Dubai track from the game. As Microsoft had previously demonstrated during E3, not only does Forza Motorsport look great but it also runs great on Xbox. After all, it is one of the few Xbox One X titles confirmed so far which will be running at a native 4K with 60 frames per second. Hopefully, the PC version of the game also manages to perform at a similar level, the required specs released by Turn 10 Studios are pretty reasonable in that department.
Forza Motorsport 7 is currently scheduled for a 3rd October release on both Xbox One and Windows 10. Like previous Microsoft exclusives, it will also be a part of the Play Anywhere program so fans will have to only buy it once and their progress will work between both platforms. To bridge the gap between fans of Sony’s platform, Microsoft also revealed that the game will have native DualShock 4 support.
Those purchasing the game digitally will have to keep their storage in mind as the game will weigh in around 100GB which is considerably higher than Forza Horizon 3’s 45GB download size.
