Developer Turn 10 Studios and publisher Xbox Game Studios continue sharing track reveal videos for the upcoming Forza Motorsport title for the PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
Today, we can check out the Japanese Suzuka International Racing Course. In addition to the standard GP layout, the Suzuka Circuit in Forza Motorsport will also feature a number of alternative layouts, including a reverse layout and a shorter layout.
The real-world Suzuka circuit is a 5.821 km (3.617 mi) Gran Prix track in Ino, Suzuka City, Japan. The circuit has 17 turns and a massive 1.2 km back straight and is one of few tracks in the world to feature a “figure eight” layout. The track is designed by Dutch architect John Hugenholtz and was built in 1962, as a test track for the Honda Motor Company. Its first Formula One race was held in 1987.

Besides F1, the venue also hosts other motorsport events such as the 1000km endurance race and the Super GT. The real-world Suzuka track features five different layouts.

Key track features:
- Dynamic weather system – The weather in Forza Motorsport will be fully dynamic, and it will change in real-time. This will affect the track conditions, making it more challenging to race in wet or snowy weather.
- Rubbering in – As cars race around the track, they will deposit rubber on the track surface. This will make the track grippier, but it will also make it more difficult to overtake.
- Track temperature – The track temperature will also affect the grip of the cars. In colder weather, the track will be grippier, while in hotter weather, the track will be more slippery.
- Living crowds – The crowds at the tracks will be fully animated and will react to the race in real-time. They will cheer for their favorite drivers and boo the ones they don’t like.
- Multiple layouts – Many of the tracks in Forza Motorsport will have multiple layouts. This will give players more variety and challenge.
Forza Motorsport will include a mix of over 500 classic and modern cars and 20 real-world, and fictional tracks to race them on. The game features a new career mode called Builders Cup, where players can build their own team and compete against other teams in a variety of events. There will also be a multiplayer mode that supports up to 20 players.
The new Forza Motorsport title features a new dynamic weather system that changes the track conditions in real-time, as well as a new damage system that shows realistic wear and tear on cars. The physics engine has also been overhauled, and the game is said to be the most realistic game in the series to date.
