Microsoft accidentally released some major details about Forza Motorsport 6. The company's Japanese website shared information on several features of the game including the technical specs and multiplayer before being pulled down.
The Microsoft Japan site for Forza 6, cached here, says that the game will run at 1080p resolution and 50 frames per second. It will also have weather effects and night racing, two features that were notably missing from Forza 5. When there's rain during a race, Microsoft says, players will see 3D puddles on the track.
Another criticism of Forza 5 was that it had far fewer tracks (14) and cars (200) than F4. However, Forza 6 will allegedly include over 26 locations such as Daytona and Rio. Players will be able to drive over 450 cars "all immaculately recreated and customizable, and complete with working cockpits and full damage." Microsoft states that F6 will have more cars than any other racing game thus far in this generation.
Forza 6 players will have both local and multiplayer options for the game. The game supports 2-player split-screen as well as online races for up to 24. Forza 5's and Horizon 2's Drivatar system, which created A.I. racers based on you and your friends' performance, will be returning as well to give players "realistic" competition while playing solo.
The details and images on the site were apparently released a week earlier than Microsoft intended. When they first announced Forza 6, they promised a full reveal during their E3 2015 press conference. That won't be happening until June 15th.
I don't think this leak completely spoils their unveiling, though. I imagine they're going to actually show off gameplay during the press conference as well. At the very least, we'll get a short trailer. It's a lot more impactful to actually show the world your game rather than list tech specs.
Forza Motorsport 6 is expected to launch this holiday season exclusively on Xbox One.
