Forza Motosport 8 is getting a number of exciting features including realtime ray tracing and an all-new career mode according to today’s Forza Monthly livestream.

The information comes from the game’s Creative Director, Chris Esaki. According to Esaki, the game will sport a full night and day cycle and varying weather forecasts for all tracks. These will only be enhanced by the game’s realtime ray tracing. These tracks, whether they’re new or returning, have been built from the ground up for this iteration of Forza.

The weather aspect will also determine how you drive affecting things like traction, grip and more. To make it even more dynamic, tires in-game have been drastically upgraded to include eight contact points. Forza Motorsport 7’s tires only included one, according to Esaki.

In terms of gameplay, players can expect an all new career mode and a racing weekend-style multiplayer with multiple steps to complete like practice, qualifiers, and the final races.

We got a peek a few days ago at the upcoming game during the Xbox Showcase. The trailer featured stunning cars on hyper-realistic tracks. The traile also had an emphasis on improved graphics, physics, and vehicle destruction.

There is currently no release date for Forza 8 other than sometime 2023. If you’re wanting to play the last game in the series while you wait, it was delisted last year. If you need a game to scratch that racing itch, though, check out Forza Horizon 5, which we awarded a 10 out of 10 in our review.
