Forza Motorsport Career Mode & Progression Based Content Requires An Internet Connection
The Career Mode and all progression based content featured in Xbox and Turn 10’s upcoming sim racing game, Forza Motorsport, will require an internet connection.
Speaking during the June, 2023 edition of Forza Monthly, Forza Motorsport Creative Director, Chirs Esaki, revealed that the Career Mode and all progression based content featured in the upcoming sim racing game will require an internet connection.
Esaki mentioned that Forza Motorsport has been designed to easily adjust and add new content over time. In order to ensure a fair and secure experience anywhere in the game, any progression will be stored on servers to support the integrity of the overall game experience. Therefore, any progression based content, including the Career mode, requires an internet connection to play. That said, there are options for playing offline, including modes like Free Play.
Previously, it was reported that Forza Motorsport will feature ray traced global illumination (RTGI) exclusively on PC. In a recently published Q&A, developer Turn 10 had apparently confirmed that its forthcoming sim racing game will feature ray traced global illumination (RTGI) exclusively on PC. However, that information has since been removed, though Twitter user ItsHoje was able to capture a screenshot of its mention in the Q&A.
Turn 10 explained that, in the PC version, when ray tracing is applied to global illumination, the game simulates how light accumulates color as it bounces color from surface to surface. For instance, a barrier next to a red rumble strip will be influenced by that color, creating a scene where all the pieces are connected.
According to the developer, Forza Motorsport leverages the full power and performance of Xbox Series X|S consoles and is its most beautiful, technically advanced game yet. As a result, it will not be ported over to Xbox One. Among the main new features in Forza Motorsport is the advancement made to its physics model, which is said to be greater than the physics improvements seen in Forza Motorsport 5, 6, and 7 combined. According to the developer, this makes the driving experience more fun and rewarding in the way that the car accelerates, corners, and brakes.
