Forza Motorsport 6 has gone gold and demo out next week

What is a great bit of news – the Forza Motorsport 6 demo is out next week on Tuesday. If you play the demo you’ll also get the Ford GT delivered to your garage for the full game.

At least we’ll all get a chance to have a go at it and see how it has developed from Forza Motorsport 5.

Forza Motorsport 6 has also gone gold as well so for those that pre-ordered the game digitally, expect to see that downloading soon as well.

Other important points to note is that not every track will have wet options, nor night options. The tracks that have wet and night options are listed below. Some of this makes sense as on some of the tracks you are not likely to have night races, and it probably doesn’t rain much in others either. I will say it is a bit disappointing, but to be expected when Turn 10 want to hit 1080p at 60fps (in contrast Forza Horizon 2 was 1080 / 30fps).

Racing in the Rain

No matter how fast you think you are, the rain will humble you. There’s a reason they call rain “the great equalizer” – it’s enough to bring even the greatest racers down to earth. It’s where the smallest errors are magnified a hundredfold, and where the greatest risks can be the difference between victory and an embarrassing spin.

With Forza Motorsport 6, we’ve brought rain to life; simulating the experience of not just how rain looks and sounds but, most importantly, how it feels. Fully modeled 3D puddles lurk on wet-weather tracks, waiting to pounce on your car like hungry sea monsters. Get an apex wrong or dip a tire in the water, and you’ll feel the puddle pulling your car deeper into the wet.

Perhaps the most challenging aspect of racing in the rain is relearning the course. After all, your racing line changes in wet weather – where once there was an apex, there might be a puddle, and you’ll need to react and relearn your racing line in order to find the fastest (and safest) way around the track.

Each of the wet-weather tracks in Forza Motorsport 6 have been selected because of their close ties to rain racing. Whether its U.K.-based circuits like Brands Hatch or Silverstone, or famous endurance racing tracks like Spa or the Nürburgring (the latter of which features more than 500 accurately placed puddles!), these locations will test your mastery of the car, the weather, and yourself:

Brands Hatch

Circuit de Spa Francorchamps

Le Mans Circuit de la Sarthe

Nürburgring

Sebring International Raceway

Silverstone

Additionally, the Top Gear Track will feature wet conditions.

Racing at Night

Racing makes demands of the driver in an entirely different way. Call it bravery, chutzpah, or sheer will , driving at ludicrous speeds when all you have to guide you are a pair of headlights and, if you’re lucky, the brake lights of the cars ahead, requires race drivers to go above and beyond what is already expected of them.

The same is true in Forza Motorsport 6. Whether you are careening down the back straight at Le Mans or navigating tight traffic on Daytona, night racing in Forza Motorsport 6 requires you to use your driving skills in new ways. We’ve taken inspiration from different variations of night, too. After all, racing under the neon lights of the Viceroy Hotel at Yas Marina is a very different experience from battling it out in the darkest depths of Sebring. With reduced grip thanks to the cooler track temperatures, you’ll experience a unique challenge in each of the night-racing tracks in Forza 6:

Circuit de Spa Franchorchamps

Daytona International Speedway

Le Mans Circuit de la Sarthe

Nürburgring

Plus, Sebring International Raceway, and Yas Marina will be available to race at night.

  1. Yeah it is going to be a great game I suspect. Can’t wait for the demo next week and then I can play from the 10th September (I pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition via the digital marketplace).
