The creative director of the game Forza Motorsport has emphasized that the Ray-Tracing feature will perform well in the game.
In a study by rival Gran Turismo 7, the majority of viewers noticed only the effect of light reflections in the trailers. Forza’s creative director Chris Esaki said on Thursday that the Turn 10 developer shared they didn’t mean to mislead viewers. “The Ray-Tracing feature is completely in the game and on the right track so you can rest assured that what you see is true.”
“We are not trying to fool you here. When you are racing in the game, Ray-Tracing will be enabled and we want to make that clear again. When you see it while playing, it’s the buoyancy of each ray of light onto the object. Reflections look lifelike, providing an immersive experience and you can rest assured of that.
Forza Motorsports’ in-game ray tracing seems to include both light reflection and refraction from the surroundings. However, Esaki clarified that the footage shown in the recent Xbox Showcase trailer featured global illumination, which calculates light bounces off these surfaces onto other surfaces, which he emphasizes strong to introduce in some scenes in the game.
“I thought it was unbelievable,” he said. “It showed us just how far we’ve come in developing this Ray-Tracing feature, as well as how immersive and the visual leap we’ve made on these platforms. new and the power we have in our hands is no longer something that is too difficult to reach.” Tracking this allows realistic simulation of light and reflections in the environment, similar to what is seen in CGI movies – the flagship graphics feature of the next-generation consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X and modern PC graphics cards.
Currently, many PS5 and Xbox Series X games offer Ray-Tracing. However, these modes come with a trade-off between reduced frame rates and lower resolutions to facilitate the substantial provisioning needed for this effect. Other powerful graphics games, such as Gran Tursimo 7, do not support this feature at all during play. Xbox confirmed last week that the new Forza Motorsport will be released in the spring of 2023 and let’s wait and see if what the developer has shared is really 100% true as advertised after launch. .
