Forza Motorsport, the latest installment in the epic racing franchise of the same name, is almost here. It's been six long years since the last entry and fans are really looking forward to the game. Ahead of its release next month, the game's developer, Turn 10 Studios, has released extensive introductory gameplay footage that gives us a sneak peek of what to expect.

The footage contains the first few minutes of actual gameplay that also serves as a tutorial. From what we can tell, it captures three events, two cover cars, and a free starter car, which can be any of the front-wheel drive Honda Civic Type R 2018, rear-wheel drive Ford Mustang GT 2018, and all-wheel drive Subaru STI S209 2019.

The Forza Motorsport gameplay footage begins with a practice lap that takes place at the Maple Valley track in the United States. Here, Turn 10 Studios shows us how to play the game and how to customize its settings. Among other things, we see how to change the camera settings, drive the race car, drive around a bend, and use braking lines.

Next, we witness the final laps of an endurance race in Hakone, Japan. Here, the gameplay captures the Cadillac Racing V-Series R in competition with 23 other vehicles. We also get an insight into the game's interesting pit crew animations and more.

For the final racing event, the footage showcases a full grid race that takes place at Grand Oak Raceway. Before the race begins, we see how players can update their vehicles and keep them in the right condition for their races.

Forza Motorsport will feature many iconic race tracks from around the world.

From what we saw, Forza Motorsport places a premium on delivering an incredible and authentic experience. Apart from the fact that it replicates many real-life tracks, including the Suzuka Circuit in Japan and the Kyalami Grand Prix, the game also seems to capture the real-world sounds and appearances of many of the vehicles it features.

Forza Motorsport's gameplay footage is an insight into what to expect when the game drops. If the rest of the game lives up to the little we have seen, we dare say that Xbox has a classic on its hands. The experience is nothing short of exhilarating and we are absolutely certain that players will love the game.

Forza Motorsport will be available on the PC, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S on October 10. The game will also be available on early access about five days before its widespread release. For this, you will need to purchase the premium edition.
