Forza Motorsport 5 cockpit and wheel E3 2013 gameplay videos

We've said it before and we'll say it again: visually, Forza Motorsport 5 is setting the standard for next generation racing titles to follow, and it's looking every bit as good in-game as the initial trailers led us to believe which our E3 gameplay footage will testify. 

We scoured the show-floor to bring you some in-game footage of FM5 in action played with a prototype wheel setup from an unknown manufacturer, and it's hard not to be impressed by the astounding detail on display. Even the rendering of the in-car windscreens finally resemble glass accurately rendering reflections and light accordingly - a feat that current generation games have seldom been able to convey. 



To us, though, the graphics almost look too clean. As glorious as the environment looks (particularly with those jaw-dropping vista views that scream next generation) the Prague circuit looks a bit too sterile, lacking the ambience and weathered track texture detail we come to expect from a racing game of Forza's caliber. Still, this is of course an early look at FM5, so Turn10 have plenty of time to patch up what is otherwise a truly stunning looking game. 



In fact, the camera footage really doesn't do FM5 justice. Not only is the visual clarity sacrificed for obvious reasons in footage filmed off-screen, but YouTube locked our recorded video to 30fps, so you can't appreciate Forza's fluidity fueled by its buttery smooth 60FPS. Nevertheless, the detail packed into FM5 is still abundantly clear.

Turn 10 are still holding back on revealing details about the physics, but we're told that the handling model in the demo is far from finished. With the recent announcement of open-wheel race cars finally answering our prayers, we look forward to disccovering what other surprises are in-store later down the line.
