why are the people arguing about it not just take the time and pixelcount the highest quality video they find, and find out if it scales? it's not hard to do and doesn't take as much time ad arguing about it all day xD

here is how to pixelcount fast and easy


VGTech/NXGamer/DF or one of them should provide that, if it's worth it at this stage. Better wait for the game release and see the final build.

After watching Metro Exodus with RT needing an entirely new design that could only run on next gen, it makes a lot of sense to me since FH5 has to run on Xbox One as well. The new NEXT-GEN only Forza will use all the bells and whistles, the same way FH3 did, whereas FH2 worked on 360 and there's just no comparison.

The gen has just begun, if this is the FH2 of this gen, get ready to get your socks blown off.

Why are people comparing and open world game with tons of physics to GT7. Wouldn't the upcoming Forza Motorsport be a better comparison when that comes out?

Also, with regards to ray tracing. In third party games, Series X performs better.

I think this is a fair expectation but it wouldn't shock me if it misses the mark even if not by much. The digital foundry comparison of this game between XSX/PC is gonna be interesting.
I'd expect much better effort than they put in with the S|X FH4 upgrades. In retrospect it makes sense they'd do a bare-bones upgrade since FH5 was coming down the pipe soon. I'll be playing on PC at 60fps, but I'm still hoping for the best for people playing on S|X in 60fps mode. Stuff like night shadows and AO were absent in the S|X versions of FH4, and those need to be included in FH5 60fps mode even at the expense of resolution. A 1080p/120fps mode would be cool for the XSX, too.

to be fair the X|S version wasn't done by Playground. It was Panic Button iirc

That's how you know they brought the goods.


Haha true


"Give me the best visuals possible, RayTracing is a waste of resources, just look at Unreal Engine 5"

Oh man, how the narrative turns so quickly, it could snap someone's neck!




OMG, is this real life?

Oops, neve mind, it's not Ray Traced lol.

The funny part is they could just lie and say it's ray traced and all of a sudden that same picture increases in realism / awesomeness 100%.

Nothing wrong with RT, it can look amazing. But if you can fool me this well with all the fake tricks, be my guest. The end result should be what matters in the end.

I've even seen a few examples of RT where I like the non-RT version better, super realism doesn't always capture the mood quite as well. Especially in dark scenes.

It’s possible that with a 60 FPS target, multiple cars driving through a lush environment with water on top, it becomes impractical to apply real time RT.

I would be lying if It meant anything more than a footnote, Playground is doing phenomenal work.

This comparison makes me angry every time I see it.
Forza Horizon 2 on X360 is not shit because the original game is too heavy, but only because it is a shitty port. Even The Crew on X360 have more geometry than this, not counting NfS Rivals, Most Wanted and TDU2.
forza 2 was a massive step , and probably the foundation of the true game series, as the first was 90% arcade , the second , 90% real, due to input from physics scientists and race drivers.

no 120fps? Very disappointing. Its a rather fast pace game..

Framerate should be unlocked on Windows.

Forza has great graphics going for them but it doesn’t have the charm GT gives you.

Charm? There hasn't been a mainline GT game for over 9 years. Whatever charm it has, has been missing for so long, it's probably not relevant any more. I love Gran Turismo and I can't wait for 7 but they're going to have to do something really special to pull me away from the Forza ecosystem now.

But their main target is 30 fps native 4k like Ratchet. I think the open world limits the use of RT. Horizon Forbidden West isnt using RT either.

Apparently Avatar is using ray traced foliage. Whatever that means. But it doesnt seem to be using ray traced lighting or reflections either. Flight sim is coming out soon and its not using ray tracing. We have just two open world games so far using ray tracing. Spiderman and Metro and both go down to 1080p when trying to hit 60 fps. And thats while displaying last gen assets. Forza is using next gen foliage that looks almost photorealistic. I just dont think you can have enough budget left for ray tracing when you are pushing graphical fidelity that high.

The lighting is fairly cross gen and car models dont seem to have gotten a big upgrade from last gen so my guess is that it will stay that way even in the fully next gen only Forza Horizon. They will use any extra GPU power to redo the lighting and other visual effects going forward. I think ray tracing will only be in linear racing games like GT7 and Forza Motorsport.

Series S is definitely a 1080p console.


Edit: and to be clear, there's nothing wrong with that. Tons of people still have a 1080p TV in their living room.

Unless it’s a design issue due to being a cross gen game it could most definitely have ray traced reflections during gameplay if they implemented fidelityfx. The performance increase is massive.

I'm suprised that nobody noticed (even DF) that there are RT reflections visible in the official trailer with "replay" angles during racing. You can see it clearly on the scenes on the screenshots below. And for example in scenes with Land Rover near... waterfall you can see that in some scenes there are high res shadows and RT reflections and in other no RT reflections and lower res shadows.

Yeah i know but its still not in gameplay (which matter the most) its gonna be in photomode and Forzavista probably.
