We are now entering the storm of Fall 2017 video game releases and the pack is being lead by Microsoft’s simcade racing juggernaut, Forza Motorsport 7. Ahead of its September 29 launch for Ultimate Edition pre-orders, a playable demo has arrived on the Windows Store allowing players to get a taste of the 4K racing experience that is expected to be the showcase for Microsoft's upcoming Xbox One X console.
The 22GB demo features 3 selectable cars, each paired to one of three tracks. Each track offers a unique glimpse at the new weather system that promises to change how drivers approach each race. Earlier this year at E3, Turn 10 promised that the PC version of Forza 7 was being built from the ground up on the Windows platform in an interview with Shacknews. PC graphics enthusiasts can get a peek at some of the graphics options used for our demo capture video below.
The demo (and full game) makes use of a dynamic rendering system that will adjust settings up and down on the fly to ensure the best possible visual with a rock solid framerate. All options are configurable by the user and can be set to adjust themselves dynamically. Be sure to check out our guide to Forza Motorsport 7’s PC requirements to find out if your machine is up to the task of 4K 60fps gameplay.
