Microsoft’s Forza franchise is renowned for beautiful trailers and they didn’t disappoint at Xbox Games Showcase on July 23, revealing how Forza Motorsport 8 will look on Xbox One and Xbox Series X consoles. 

The exclusive Xbox game has been short on detail ever since developers confirmed they were working on it. This left fans with just reported leaks and the odd comment from the dev team to work with.

With this title being the first to emerge from the series on next-gen consoles, a lot of expectation surrounds its release. During the presentation, a release date wasn’t  confirmed but it can’t be far away now. Anyway, let’s take a look at the trailer.

Sound on for this one.

Forza Motorsport 8 trailer and new details

The epic new trailer showcases everything that Forza is known for. It includes loud engines, incredible landscapes, and tracks that any driver in the world would like to fly around on.

Fans of the series will be hoping to see a load of the newest models in the next game. The Ford GTA 2020, McClaren 720S, Ferrari 488 GTB, Audi R8 V10 Plus, and many more have been touted to be included.

After all, almost every major motorcar manufacturer in the world has their name on Microsoft’s flagship racing title.

In terms of release date, nothing is confirmed as of yet – but it’s expected to come out alongside the next-gen Xbox Series X at some stage.

Series 28 of Forza Horizon 4 has proven to be quite a lucrative update, with plenty of new cars and even new features on offer. With October 29 bringing about the move to autumn, players have a chance to get their hands on some legendary vehicles and more.

Forza Horizon 4 is still a firm fan favorite in spite of its age, with plenty of new vehicles and challenges available each week. For Series 28 autumn season, the legendary Zenvo TSR-S and Volkswagen I.D. R have taken their place as ‘star’ prizes for playlist completion.

Not only are there two legendary cars up for grabs, but a whole host of other rare, hard-to-find cars are available through the challenge playlist. There are also the usual super wheelspins up for grabs, along with a legendary piece of apparel too.

Fans of hard-to-find cars will be very happy to see two ‘hero’ cars as the playlist completion bonuses for the autumn season of series 28.

While neither of the cars are completely new to the game in the way the GMC Syclone was for Summer, both of the vehicles up for grabs are extremely hard to get in-game, and disappear almost instantly from the auction house.
