Here at MoparInsiders.com, we are huge fans of the Forza Motorsport and Horizon franchises. Whether it be the primarily professional-style track racing events of Motorsport or the open-world experience surrounding the traveling Forza Horizon festival, both series never seem to disappoint.
This week, Turn 10 Studios released an official trailer of the highly-anticipated eighth installment of its Motorsport franchise. It marks the first all-new Forza Motorsport title since 2017 and is set for a release on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox Game Pass, and PC via the Mircosoft Store and Stream this spring.
During the Microsoft and Bethesda’s Developer Direct showcase on Wednesday, we were treated to some intense 4K in-game footage (via PC) of some of the new details, graphics, and physics that the new game will have. Turn 10 also announced that over 500 vehicles will be available in-game at launch and even released a small teaser list of the cars shown in the footage. Among them, were some very popular Mopars:
- 1969 Dodge Charger R/T
- 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T
- 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
- 2014 #93 SRT Motorsports Viper GTS-R
Now, we are sure there will be a lot more Mopars in the game when it launches, those models listed are just the vehicles that have been confirmed in the trailer and videos of in-game footage. Other notable Stellantis products include:
- 1992 Lancia Delta HR Integrate EVO
- 1984 Peugeot 205 Turbo 16
- 1993 #3 Peugeot Talbot Sport 905 EVO 1C
The new trailer (shown at the top of the page) debuted alongside the first-ever gameplay of Forza Motorsport, which shows us the famed Maple Valley Raceway – a beloved, fan-favorite track since the very first Motorsport game launched in 2005 – is being brought to life in stunning detail and beauty.
In addition to Maple Valley, the trailer introduced players to returning fan-favorite tracks Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and Laguna Seca Raceway. Turn 10 also revealed Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit, a South African track making its Forza Motorsport debut, and the all-new Circuit Hakone set in Japan, an original, high-speed Grand Prix circuit built to showcase the technically advanced, state-of-the-art immersion of the new Forza Motorsport.
As for car damage, Turn 10 says that it has been reproduced down to the individual scratches on the bodywork. There are all-new simulation details in the directionality of damage, how the paint peels away at exposed and raised edges, in the wheel abrasions, and in the dirt build-up.
Overall, we can’t wait to spend some time behind our controls on this new installment.
