Forza Motorsport 6 is one of the eagerly anticipated racing titles for the Xbox One, ever since it was first announced at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. Now, at this year’s E3 event, we got our first good look at Turn 10 Studio’s racing title, and what it will bring to the table: a LOT.

First, let’s talk about the most notable addition: weather and night racing. For the first time, a Forza Motorsport racing title will have rain, and Turn 10’s planning on doing it right. They have recreated 148 different surface types, and have set values for both dry and wet surfaces. They also have worked to simulate puddles, and the dangers of hydroplaning.

Note that the weather and time of day will NOT be dynamic, though: they will be static conditions. This is somewhat disappointing, because titles such as Gran Turismo 6, Project CARS, and rFactor 2 feature dynamic conditions and transition of time.

Now, let’s take a look at what makes the racing game: the cars and tracks. While Forza Motorsport 5 was released with significantly fewer cars than Forza 4 (Forza 5 shipped with around 200), Forza Motorsport 6 will feature over 450 cars at launch. As of right now, over 100 are announced, which you can see below.

The game will feature 26 locations, with over 100 configurations! Every track from Forza Motorsport 5 will return, and more circuits will be added. 5 new locations announced at E3 are Watkins Glen, Brands Hatch, Rio de Janeiro, Daytona International Speedway, and the renovated Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Five more courses will be announced closer to the game’s launch.

The racing looks to be greatly improved as well. Forza Motorsport 6 will feature 24 opponents, both offline and online. The career mode looks to be improved, giving you over 70 hours of races over your “virtual career”.

Forza Motorsport 6 is slated for release September 15th of this year. Are you looking forward to the title’s release? Let us know in the comments!
