Apart from the Forza Motorsport 8 trailer, we also got to see an official gameplay demo. The developers also state that the new game is one of the most technically advanced Motorsport games to have ever been released. Forza Motorsport 8 gameplay demo shows off Maple Valley – a track that has been a fan favorite since the first iteration of Forza Motorsport. The game also has full ray tracing support while racing on the tracks, giving you a more realistic experience of the game and the environment you race in.
The game now has dynamic weather. This also means that your vehicle handling and performance will change based on the type of climate you are racing in be it wet or dry. At least from what we can see in the demo, the on-screen elements such as the speedometer and as well as the map are simple and pleasing to look at. The game now finally has tire and fuel management systems as well as multiple tire compounds to choose from. The other important aspect that players love a lot is the car sounds, vehicles sound so much better and for that matter super close to the real thing.
