E3: Forza 7 gameplay

E3: Forza 7 gameplay

The great Miguel got into the Microsoft showcase yesterday and managed to capture some 4K 60 fps footage of Forza Motorsport 7. Unfortunately the file we captured was in HDR and we (like many others) were absolutely not ready to handle such a format. We spend many hours experimenting with various software and settings and finally found a solution that we think is close to the actual game in terms of colors and black/white levels. Keep in mind though that the game might look a bit different from this video, but this should be quite close hopefully. There will be 3 videos, but since each takes hours to encode you'll have to be patient. Also the files were not encoded with our usual tool chain, so hopefully they will work as well as usual.
Update 2: Added the third video.

Thanks for all of you guys' hardwork.

Aside from the 4K videos you guys will make once the show floor opens, are there any more videos or trailers we can expect in 4K?

This is how a 2017 racing game should looks and sounds like, awesome

No more off screen vids, so cool that you can record the vids directly now if they let you do it

If you want to see how it looked like before we did the color correction, check this IGN video:

Wow, that is very funny - and bad. But I have a question, how did so many of you guys from the press commit the same mistake?

Was it because the direct feed was in HDR by default and that activated HDR in most people's capture equipment?

PS. The video's comments' section is really funny. Almost no one commented on the visual quality of the video, and those that did said that the game looks very good. Did they not notice the borked colors? Or perhaps they think the game looks like that? Either way it's strange and very funny.

HDR could not be deactivated, Miguel tried and even asked someone from MS who could not do it either. So yeah, all video captured are borked.

I need to see this on my Oled 4k tv!!!

Dam this is looking great but sadly i dont see it beating PCars 2 regarding gameplay and this means no reason to buy a Xbox X...sadly.

Thanks for the info. I hope Microsoft and other companies be mindful of this issue in the future.

As for the comments, I just thought it weird and funny that no one commented on it in 40 or so comments I read. And it's something immediately apparent too. But maybe they thought it was due to how the game was captured, like off-screen or something and just didn't mind.

Anyway, the game looks beautiful. You can clearly see all the extra details in Gamersyde's videos. Specially at 4K. Watching the Metro: Exodus excellent trailer first at 4K and then immediately at 1080p - or vice-versa, you just see how much more "smoothed" and washed out the visuals are in 1080p. One of those things we just "never noticed before".

I know it might strain Gamersyde's servers and bandwidth consumption, but I hope you guys just keep adding more and more 4K videos. I already have 43 GB of videos from Gamersyde and want more. Just keep them coming - maybe we can aim for a 200 GB goal. XD

PS. Any 4K or 1080p videos with 5.1 Surround audio will be greatly appreciated as well.

Am I the only one who thinks that this looks dull and synthetic? The high resolution makes it even more noticable that ambient occlusion is missing. This kills the immersion for me, especially when weather is cloudy and cars seem to float. The 6TF are simply not enough for 4k and AO. I would like to see the option to play all 4k titles in Full HD with AO enabled.

Wow that looks AND sounds fucking incredible! And that new track looks like a keeper! Thanks for the footage!

@BlimBlim

Are the load times really that short? Or are you guys editing them out?
Commented on 2017-06-13 20:26:20
Gorgeous

It's edited. Load times are shorter than FM6 but it's an early build, FM6 E3 build were slower to load than final game.

Also, it was running on an XDK.

It looks nothing like the conference trailer. I'm sure that whole trailer was fake.

This is just how racing games work and have done since, well forever. They look good playing them, but they can look real in replays and trailers.

Heres a GTsport example

The visuals and sound are bar non the best I've witnessed in any racer. The lighting on the desert track is beyond good. This is going to be a tuff one to beat this fall.

No, no, no! They were advertising the 'amazing' graphics possible on X1X with Forza 7. It wasn't just announcing the game. It was a showcase for the new console.

Is it possible to upload the HDR file? I'm sure those of us with 4K HDR sets would love to see some HDR gameplay videos. I've actually wondered what's been taking so long for these guys to start producing HDR footage.

The original captured video weighs 150 GB, and the HDR mode is not one a TV would understand. I honestly would love to use these videos to generate actual HDR10 files, but currently it seems very unlikely we will manage to do this.

while 6tf may be considered not enough for pc users its certainly more than enough for consoles, trying to draw direct comparisons with hardware is never a good idea, FM7 looks like it's going to deliver its promise of 4k60 and lets not forget this is still work in progress.

Hmn, those overcast conditions are not making this game's looks any favors. Frankly it looks bad in those conditions, T10 got it wrong. I don't care how overcast it is, the cars will create some shadows unto themselves and surroundings. Right now it looks flat.
