Another day, another spectacular Rockstar Editor creation. E3 2015 just wrapped up, with a ton of awesome new games shown off at the expo. Microsoft seemingly “won” E3 (until Sony came along, that is) with their announcement of backwards compatibility coming to the Xbox One free of charge, but that certainly wasn’t the only thing they had going for them. A bunch of Xbox One and Microsoft exclusives were also announced, or previously announced titles got their first trailers. One such game, exclusive to the Xbox One, is Forza Motortsport 6, successor to the Xbox One launch title.
The first gameplay trailer for Forza 6 was shown off at E3 2015.
What does Forza have? Cars! What else has cars? GTA V! What game has in-built gameplay recording and editing software? Also GTA V! You see where this is going.
Many fans were disappointed by Forza Motorsport 5 back when it launched on the then-newborn Xbox One, as they didn’t feel that the graphical and technical difference between it and the later racing games of the previous generation was large enough to warrant the “next-gen” descriptor. Current-gen car games started popping up, as Ubisoft released The Crew last year, and Forza Horizon 2 was also released. But hey, we’ve all had GTA for our racing needs, right?
The current-gen racing scene is a tad sparse, but we can look forward to a few newer releases soon to scratch this particular itch, and it seems that these titles will finally make proper use of the current generation’s hardware. We’ve already seen an improvement in the visuals of games released for Xbox One and Playstation 4 in the past year over the launch titles, and considering the massive difference between the launch titles of their predecessors and later games released on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, we can look forward to some genuinely amazing graphics. (Or, you know, just play on PC.)
Are you guys looking forward to Forza Motorsport 6? What did you think of Forza Motorsport 5?
