It’s only a week away from the Microsoft’s E3 briefing, so of course some details for Forza Motorsport 6 have been leaked.
The official Japanese Xbox Website posted, and then removed some information with regards to Forza Motorsport 6, alongside some pretty photos of the game too. So let’s get uncovering the details from the leak.
According to the leak, the game will reportedly feature a collection of over 450 cars. This is over 200 more than Forza Motorsport 5 included when it launched back in November 2013, however this would still mean that Forza 6 would still fall short of the 500 cars on offer in Forza Motorsport 4, the Xbox 360 title released back in 2011. The game also promises to deliver “breathtaking graphics”, which is pretty accurately reflected in the screenshots included within this article.
The leak also reported that Forza 6 will offer two-player splitscreen. Racing fans across the world rejoice as we finally get to battle it out with friends in the same room, a feature that’s been absent in some more recent racers. That’s not where the multiplayer fun will end however, alongside the splitscreen mode, wannabe racers will be able to battle it out on the road against other players around the world in 24-player online races.
That’s not all though, Drivatar, the technology at the heart of all computer opponents in Forza Motorsport 5 is set to return in Forza 6. Drivatar is a novel form of learning Artificial Intelligence developed in order to allow players to create their very own AI driver. This driver will then be used to represent you in your friends games. It’s also the underlying model for all the AI competitors in the “Arcade” and “Career” modes of the game.
Finally the leak detailed the number of “world-famous” locations that racers can expect to be racing around upon the game’s release. The official Japanese Xbox website reported that there would be a total of 26 “world-famous” locations featured in the game.
Of course with all leaks and rumors it’s always good to take these details with a pinch of salt. But if the screenshots and details from this leak are to be believed, Turn 10’s upcoming racer sounds like one to add to your wishlist.
You can expect more concrete information at Microsoft’s E3 briefing on June 15th.
