Forza Motorsport 7 was just announced at E3, and we’ve got an exclusive first look at the game, which you can see above. The first Forza for Microsoft’s new Xbox One X will take advantage of the console’s boost in power to run natively in 4K at 60 frames per second. The 5-minute clip shows off what that looks like with a quick race in a Nissan GT-R at Nürburgring.
That clip also shows off something else: Forza Motorsport 7 finally brings dynamic weather to the series. It goes way beyond the simple “rain” and “night” modes introduced in Forza 6 — every time you race, and even during the races (as you can see above), the weather will be different, and the tracks respond in kind. Puddles will build as the rain keeps pounding down, and severe heat in the game’s new featured track — Dubai — will affect how fast your tires wear, and more.
We also got an exclusive hands-on look at the game in the weeks leading up to E3, which you can read about in this feature. But here’s a short breakdown of what else to expect in Forza Motorsport 7:
- 700 cars, including the return of Porsche to Forza
- 30 tracks/locations with 200 different layouts
- A new character mode with 300 designs
- All-new featured track — Dubai
- The return of Mugello, the track’s first appearance since Forza Motorsport 4
