Testing out the new Brands Hatch course with weather effects in Forza Motorsport 6.
At the Xbox Showcase event this evening I got to hear from Dan Greenawalt, Creative Director at developer Turn 10, about what makes this Forza game stand above the rest. Putting the new Rio track through its paces in bright sunshine it was visually impressive, but Greenawalt was keen to emphasis the level of simulation going on here.
“Going through a big puddle it’s really hard to keep the tires. The conditions are much cooler so the tires don’t heat up as much. When you are driving on the wet surface you’ve got to keep that rubber on the road.”
