Forza 6 will feature an awesome weather system, which as can be seen in the gameplay footage below, from Team VVV, rivals the king of the racing game rain effects, Driveclub.

The footage was captured off-screen at Gamescom 2015 on a triple screen set-up, which does make Forza Motorsort 6 look quite impressive.

Forza 6 runs at 1080p, 60fps, with night, with wet and 24 cars on track

Creative Director Dan Greenwalt, in an interview with DualShockers, explain how the team managed to have Forza Motorsport 6 run at 1080p, 60 frames per second with weather and 24 cars on track.

Honestly, it is optimization, optimization, optimization. Forza Motorsport 5, as well as Forza Horizon 2 as well as Forza Motorsports 6 are underpinned by our bespoke graphics engine ForzaTech. And that graphics engine is being worked on by two world-class teams: the Turn 10 team and the PlayGround team.

But also, we’re first party, so we work with The Coalition, we work with 343, we’re able to learn how to really optimize for the box.

So yeah, I think it surprised a lot of people that Forza Motorsport 6 was able to come out with 1080p, 60 frames per second, 24 cars on track, with night, with wet, but it drives great.

At the end of the day, that’s what all this technology is for. It’s for the experience. It’s to get people passionate and excited about cars in games.And if it does that, it’s all worth it.

Forza Motorsport 6 releases exclusively for the Xbox One on September 15, 2015. Featuring over 450 Forzavista cars, all with working cockpits, opening doors and full damage, including the new Ford GT. With 24-player races across 26 world-famous locales, wet weather and night racing. We will bring you any new information on Forza Motorsport 6 as soon as it becomes available.
