A few other details, including the fact that Forza 7 will feature over 700 cars, can be seen in his list below.
- The best-looking, most realistic game we’ve ever created – Forza Motorsport 7 was built from the ground up for Project Scorpio to be an immersive true 4K and 60fps experience. Plus, with HDR and race conditions that change each time you return to the track, Forza Motorsport 7 was crafted as a visual masterpiece.
- The ultimate automotive playset – Forza Motorsport 7 features more than 700 ForzaVista cars to collect, race and customize and 30 racing environments with more than 200 ribbons.

As an added extra, the folks at The Verge managed to get hands-on with Forza 7, with the entire video being directly off an Xbox One X. In the video, the driver takes a Nissan GT-R for a spin around the Nürburgring, offering a glimpse of the new HUD, and the enhanced 4K graphics. Also shown was the dynamic weather system, as the race started dry and cloudy, and then quickly shifted to wet and stormy.
