GC06: Forza 2 trailer

GC06: Forza 2 trailer

Microsoft shown this new Forza 2 trailer during their press conference, once again using the assets of the game but rendered as CGs. Still it looks awesome. Sorry about the view angle, we weren't invited at the conference so we had to improvise.
Update : The video has been removed at Microsoft's request.

The trailer looks great. I hope that the final game turns out this way as well. Time will tell, I guess.

Watch out, here comes another wave of blithering idiots who will argue that this is all in-game footage.

I'm still surprised that they still haven't released an ingame shots or video yet, especially if they're going to release the game this year (though the GC hinted that the game may be early next year).

I even asked Che (turn 10 community manager) why we still haven't seen any ingame shots and his reply:

We've been making tons of screens for all the major magazines the past couple weeks. These publications should hit newstand in the next couple weeks.

Forza might pass Gran Turismo at some point soon, but I am sick of racing games on rails. TDU is on the top of my list. New demo tomorrow.

They took screens for an unnamed magazine two weeks ago, and then some more for a second magazine the friday just gone. The magazines will have paid quite a bit for exclusive rights to show the games first screens, so they're not going to break the agreement.

And as far as I know, they're still trying to get it ready for Fall. According to the Weekly PitPass Report, they're in the finalising stages.

wtf kinda shit is this? Theres so much hype and talk over this game, and its been annouced for like 2 years now, but theres not one piece of real footage from the game. Not even a screenshot. Just a whole bunch of CGI videos. So....is this gonna actually be a game or just a movie?

oh a Fall release? yeah...maybe Fall 2007. If they're not even at a stage where they can show the game yet, how can they release it in a months time?

Looks sweet, can,t wait to play it this winter.
Commented on 2006-08-23 17:53:06
CockKnocker: kinda like mgs4 eh LOL

And yes its releasing fall 06... side by side with the MS wheel that was developed for it

and consider they said its 60fps hard locked... and over 200-300fps of physics refresh... this shi*s gonna be unreal... and especially with the wheel having rumble + full force feeback HELL YAZZZZZ

I heard there was a demo coming to Live pretty soon, like next week or something.

forza needs to get rid of its annoying rock music for the sequel. just like they borrowed the UI style and other elements, they need to borrow the musical style from gran turismo!

Try less than 15 months. The original was done in May 2005 and Forza 2 was not announced until Spring 2006.

maybe just maybe they want to create a lot of hype about this game.
this realy is the only rival to gran turisimo. why would they show yet ...just to give the competitors some ideas..NO.

i have faith. that when we see "real time " footage we wont be able to close our jaws

Nope. The truth is that come TGS, Forza is going to own GT in its iwn country with the real time graphics.

They changed the soundtrack totally, it's now known artists (but we don't know who yet).

How many *good* games get a full blown, next gen sequal in 15 months? I still see Forza 1 playing on demo Xbox's everywhere I shop.

That was a sarcastic comment I made there, incase you missed that...

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The world isn't interactive enough. It's easy to compare it to Far Cry... and it's probably not as good as Far Cry. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I only played for about an hour so far but my initial impressions are that the squad and stealth stuff is okay but the vehicle handling is indeed super bad. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: that is pretty crazy considering WD2 pretty much ruined the shooting mechanics from WD1 (probably the only good thing about that game) (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I won't call you crazy.. I haven't played either. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts People are gonna call me crazy, but I got far more enjoyment out of Watch Dogs 2's shooting mechanics than Ghost Recon: Wildlands'. Need to test other weapons, but only unlocked 2 of them. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm going to play it in about an hour after I finish up a few more rounds of Rainbow Six. It's a Tom Clancy night I guess. (9 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That's weird.. aphex said the gun mechanics were pretty good. (9 Hours ago)
