We take to Brands Hatch in the rain to take a closer look at Forza Motorsports 6's impressive wet weather conditions.
A tentative Alan starts the race well being very conscious of the tricky road conditions but is soon undone as he aqua planes on a somewhat small and tame looking puddle which sends him off the track and into the nearest crash barrier. Straight away it becomes clear that puddles will really have a profound effect on the way you have to approach wet weather racing in Turn 10 Studios' latest offering.
Alan noticed that nobody he witnessed at the show managed a clean run on the track which should give you a good idea just how tricky these conditions are at the famous British track. Our second run of Brands Hatch goes a lot smoother as Alan now knows roughly where the puddles are. Alan raises a very good point by stating once you know where the puddles are the level of challenge drops significantly thanks to the absence of dynamic weather.
Forza Motorsport 6 is look amazing, the wet weather effects with the puddles are extremely impressive and its always exciting to see innovation in the racing genre. Hopefully the likes of Project CARS and Gran Turismo can take a leaf out of Turn 10 Studios' book and include puddle technology into their titles too.
Check out the Brands Hatch race below and let us know what you think of Forza Motorsport 6's wet weather effects.
