E3 2011 saw the release of a huge amount of details about plenty of games, and Forza Motorsport 4 is no exception.
The new racing game, coming from Turn 10 Studios and set to be published by Microsoft, was displayed during the North American company's own E3 2011 conference, during which footage of its gameplay was presented to all of the attendants.
We've already heard quite a lot of things about the new racing title, including its support for the Kinect motion sensor that will allow it to track the heads of players and display their actions when using the cockpit view, as well as listen to the voice of the gamers and ease the menu navigation while not in actual races.
Microsoft has now confirmed all of the major features from Forza Motorsport 4, ranging from the improved graphics, to the Xbox Live compatibility or the wide range of car or track choices.
- Platform-defining graphics. “Forza Motorsport 4” sets a new graphical standard for the racing genre. Featuring dramatic Hollywood-style camera effects and an all new lighting engine, “Forza Motorsport 4” creates an unparalleled, dramatically realistic graphical experience — all running at a silky-smooth 60 frames per second.
- Xbox Live showpiece. “Forza Motorsport 4” is making racing more social than ever. Create a Car Club and build the ultimate dream team of drivers, tuners and painters from the “Forza” community. Share your custom cars and dominate the other clubs. With the all-new Rivals Mode, play against your friends whether they are online or not by challenging them for bragging rights and rewards in a variety of different game types.
- Industry-leading innovation with Kinect. Autovista Mode brings the automotive experience comes to life. Walk around the car in a virtual showroom, crouch down to look at the details, or open the doors and hood using the power of Kinect. Immerse yourself with Kinect Head Tracking, which pans the camera view based on how you naturally look into the corners when you’re hard charging. Take the virtual wheel with Kinect as you sit on the couch with your friends and family — no controller required. You can even take advantage of Kinect voice control to easily navigate the game’s menu.
- More of what you love. With more than 80 manufacturers, the most in any racing game available today, “Forza Motorsport 4” features unrivaled diversity and more of the cars you love. The all new World Tour Mode boasts new tracks, unending choice and hundreds of hours of gameplay as you travel the globe with your favorite car. With the most accurate physics engine, cockpits and damage on every car and assists that allow even the most casual player to race, “Forza Motorsport 4” redefines the genre.
What's more, Microsoft also confirmed the actual release date of the new racing game to the world, which is out exclusively for the Xbox 360 console on October 11, in North America, October 14, in Europe, and October 20, in the rest of the world.
