7. Forza Motorsport 7
Many racing sims aficionados have turned to the Forza Motorsport series over the years to enjoy some hardcore racing action, even if it can be argued that Microsoft’s franchise has played second fiddle to Sony’s Gran Turismo over the years.
But still, this year’s entry could end up being the best to date as Forza Motorsport 7 will not only be featuring the same collection of accurately modelled tracks as the earlier games, but also a large roster of cars to drive, as well as a large selection of game modes to enjoy.
Plus, support for Xbox One X means that this will likely be the best-looking game to date in a franchise that’s been renowned for its spectacular graphics over the years. Actually, this will not only feature true 4K graphics, full dynamic lighting and a real-time comprehensive weather system – but it will all be running at a full 60 frames per second, meaning this could end up being one of the best-looking console games released to date when it ships this fall.
Release date: October 3.
