With Forza Motorsport 7 coming out tomorrow on the Xbox One and PC, YouTuber Cycu1 has decided to do a Forza Motorsport 7 graphics comparison video with the other major racing game on the scene, Gran Turismo Sport. Gran Turismo Sport is due for release on October 17 on the Playstation 4
Forza Motorsport 7 is the most recent entry in one of the two different Forza series that are part of the franchise. Whereas Forza Horizon (its third entry having come out earlier this year) focuses on open-world racing, Forza Motorsport is more standardized, focusing on professional racing on tracks all around the world and the fast cars that take part.
One of the most important things about racing games is how good the cars and tracks look, and the Forza Motorsport 7 graphics comparison video aims to compare which of the two major racing franchises does it better.
To start off with, we have the cars themselves. Each gameplay clip from Gran Turismo and Forza are apparently using the same car, though it seems like the Forza version is more detailed. However, the environmental effects in Gran Turismo seem to be much better, meaning that we get better lighting effects and better reflections off of the ground.
Granted, the two different maps that are being used have a pre-determined time of day, meaning that it’s not possible to actually get an exact match and see which game is better. Along with that, the Gran Turismo Sport footage that’s used in the Forza Motorsport 7 graphics comparison video is only the beta footage, and with the full game not being out yet, we could get a better idea later.
Forza Motorsport 7 comes out tomorrow on October 3 for the Xbox One and the PC, so if you want to pick it up, you won’t have long to wait. Gran Turismo Sport will be releasing on October 17 on the Playstation 4. To see the Forza Motorsport 7 graphics comparison video, simply look further up the article.
