We Tackle Terrible Weather in Forza 7 Xbox One X Gameplay

Washing out

Forza Motorsport 7 on Xbox One X is going to be a visually spectacular treat in 4K and 60 frames per second. We've played a few races in a preview version and here is the delicious 4K gameplay to prove it. How will we fare in a wet weather race with no traction control or ABS? There goes the no claims bonus.

After a very warm warm-up at the new Dubai circuit in the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, we tackle a GT race around the Nurburgring GP circuit in wet weather, with crucial assists like traction control, ABS and stability control disengaged. Needless to say the Nissan GTR was quite the handful.

As one of the biggest features of Forza Motorsport 7 you'll need to get used to wrestling with the wheel during inclement weather. Managing to get to the finish line alone feels like you've completed a survival horror mini-game. Combine that with the new day and night transitions and you essentially have the most challenging conditions with which real-life racers have to contend.

Forza Motorsport 7 comes out on release date 3 October 2017 on Xbox One and Xbox One X.
