Forza Motorsport 7 Scorpio
The Forza sequence are the most effective wanting video games on the Xbox One, with final yr’s Forza Horizon three setting a very excessive bar.
It is sensible that with Microsoft spooling as much as launch the Scorpio on the finish of this yr, across the time that we count on Forza Motorsport 7 to come back out, that Turn 10 Studios would have been engaged on some Scorpio-specific upgrades.
A current Digital Foundry video closely implied that Forza Motorsport 7 would make its option to the console. The video confirmed that the Forza engine had been ported to the brand new , and a screenshot from a Forza recreation was used to indicate off the element potential at Ultra HD.

Forza Motorsport 7 want record
Now getting into its 12th yr, there are nonetheless a lot of options we’d wish to see make it into Forza.
Come now, Turn 10 Studios, we’ve waited lengthy sufficient. You can’t proudly bear the title ‘motorsport’ and never embody automobiles of the 2 wheel selection. We’d like to see superbikes be a part of the fray (and, if we have been being grasping, dust bikes, too)
Codemasters has completed nice work with RaceNet, its on-line group system that ties all its video games collectively. It could be nice to see Forza Motorsport 7 develop its personal group additional, offering instruments to run race seasons, stream the races for spectators on Twitch, and supply instruments for commentary.

Improvements to Drivatar

It was a neat concept however we’d wish to see what else Turn 10 can do with the thought and the way it can develop the characteristic. Maybe, as an alternative of constructing an AI avatar such as you, creating persistent rivals designed to counter your racing model.
