The latest edition in the Forza Motorsport series, which will be released on Xbox Game Pass and through Steam later this year, will launch with 20 “environments”, rebuilt for the new generation of Xbox consoles, and multiple track layouts.
The decision to include Kyalami in the game’s list of racetracks for the first time comes as South African motorsport fans get excited about the possibility of the country playing host to a Formula One race, possibly as soon as 2024.
“Cars have context-aware damage and dirt build-up that is authentic and unique for each vehicle in the game. We’re simulating paint thickness, chipping and directionality of damage, while layering dirt so it accumulates in a realistic manner in low-pressure areas like recesses and alcoves,” Microsoft said.
Kyalami has though long been on Assetto Corsa Competizione, as I clocked my fastest lap time there of 1 minute 48.288 seconds in a Ferrari 488 GT3.
