It’s an exciting time too Forza Motorsport, as Microsoft’s sim racing franchise prepares for a reboot and its first installment on the Xbox Series X and S generation consoles. While there is still no indication that we are seeing the game released in 2021, developer Turn 10 Studios revealed on Wednesday that it will soon offer a “portion” of the upcoming project to play testers in its Forza panel.
To check it out yourself, you will need to sign up for the Turn 10 Feedback Panel. Registration is fast and can be done in a few minutes using this basic study, although it is unclear when invitations will go out. The official Forza Motorsport Twitter originally said that participants had already started receiving invitations, even though it later clarified it hadn’t actually happened yet and the players would get their chance “soon”.
10th year creative director Chris Esaki unveiled the initiative during a Forza Monthly stream. Esaki says that Turn 10 has run weekly play tests in Xbox Game Studios, but now it feels like time to expand it to the community:
“The new news is today, which we will soon be able to share with our people in our Forza panel. They will actually be able to grab some of our new ones Forza Motorsport game. So if you are part of the Forza panel – it is recommended if you are not already in the Forza panel – the only way to get hold of this part of the new Forza Motorsport title must be part of the panel.
“We will continue to plan this type of test as we go into the coming months and get more and more people from the community in and enjoy this experience. Then come back to these Forza panels and you will actually be able to check out the new or part of the new, Forza Motorsport. ”
Esaki says that Turn 10’s development method with this upcoming post is unlike anything the team has done before. It is not clear why right now; of course we have only seen one short trailer of the title so far, going back to last summer.
Around the same time, Dan Greenawalt, the leading creative force behind the franchise, published a blog primarily to talk up the upcoming computer’s technical chops, including its support for beam tracking – though he did not tell us anything specific about the gameplay structure.
Judging by the focus on team branding and garage action in the teaser footage, Turn 10 seems to be targeting a more authentic motorsport experience this time around. It could deviate from the standard “car-PG” direction Forces past and of course the main line Fantastic tourism game.
Even the name of the game is not confirmed at the moment. Esaki refers to it as the “new Forza Motorsport“Keeps in line with the simplified title and the new logo that appears in the trailer. If this is really a reboot of Microsoft’s sim racing franchise, as many fans suspect it is, an unnumbered posting would convey the renewed ambition. Thanks to this testing program, we all seem to get a better idea of what exactly Turn 10 is planning faster than later.
