Forza Motorsport 6 is the sixth installment in the Forza Motorsport series developed by Turn 10 Studios. It was announced at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan on January 12, 2015.[1][2] The game was released on September 15, 2015.[3]

Development

Forza Motorsport 6 was first announced to the public on January 12, 2015 at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. The announcement was made alongside the unveiling of the new Ford GT supercar, which will appear as the cover car for the game. It was also confirmed to feature Ford's other high-performance vehicles, including the Ford F-150 Raptor and the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350.[1][2] Turn 10 Studios got exclusive access to the Ford GT during its development, making Turn 10 developers one of the few that knew of the car's existence.[4]

FM6 appeared at E3 2015 and was part of a line-up of games that appeared in the Xbox press conference. The E3 demo included three playable vehicles along with three tracks: [5]

  • Ford GT/Rio de Janeiro in day time,
  • Audi TTS Coupe/Brands Hatch during rainy weather,
  • Lamborghini Huracan/Le Mans at night.

Gameplay

This installment of the game includes up to 450+ "Forzavista" cars, along with 26 tracks from various countries, and also introduces two new features to the series, wet weather and night racing. The game is capable of up to 24 cars on a track, during either online multiplayer or offline single player. The career mode is stated to have been completely rebuilt and have more than 70+ hours of gameplay, but still retaining the ability to choose races. Included as part of the career mode are Showcase events, a feature that has usually been seen in the Forza Horizon series. These Showcase will focus on different events compared to Horizon, such as Autocross or endurance races. The game is stated to play at 60 frames per second (fps) at 1080p resolution, especially through wet weather.[3]
