When is the Forza Motorsport 8 release date? Forza Motorsport, the next entry into the iconic racing game series from Turn 10, is on the way and there’s so much to look forward to – well if you’re a petrol-head anyway. This game is going to be much more focused on circuit racing than Forza Horizon games, which is what Forza fans have had to play over the last five years.

Forza Motorsport is going to be the eighth release in the Forza Motorsport series – and technically the 13th Forza game to be released by Turn 10. As you might imagine, you’ll be able to choose from a wide array of cars and race them against AI and other players on a wide array of tracks. Those of you with the latest Xbox will also want to check out the Forza Motorsport Xbox Series X|S resolution and framerate so you know how it will play when it rolls around.

Forza Motorsport 8 release date

The Forza Motorsport 8 release date is Tuesday, October 10, 2023 on Xbox Series X|S and PC. This was officially announced during the 2023 Xbox Showcase, but was previously reported by Exputer

The game will be available upon release on Game Pass, but it isn’t coming to Xbox One, as it’s been built to harness the power of Microsoft’s current-gen console.

There’s going to be real-time ray-tracking and Dan Greenwalt has claimed that this is going to be “the most technically advanced racing game ever made.” So… Yeah, we’re looking forward to this one.

Racing physics have seen a massive overhaul with this release. There is also a deep modification and tuning system, that will let you tinker with every aspect of your car’s set up.

In addition, the light will reflect off the track and the cars with support for 4K resolutions and ray-tracing on track, alongside 60fps gameplay on Xbox Series X. Bumps and scrapes as you race will also look far more realistic.
