Forza Motorsport 6 is one of the most anticipated exclusive games for Microsoft's Xbox One console. However, the racing sim is just the latest in a long history of racing games, which Microsoft celebrates with the release of the new TV commercial for Forza Motorsport 6.
The ad centers on the 2017 Ford GT, the supercar that will be featured exclusively in the game. The commercial shows the car driving through a number of video games from different eras, starting with 1974's Gran Trak 10. Other games shown in the ad include Pole Position, RC Pro Am, Chase HQ and Ridge Racer.
"To place the photorealistic car inside the pixelated game worlds, Xbox photographed a real-life, multimillion dollar prototype of the Ford GT that was suspended within a motion-controlled hydraulic rig. Tracking markers were used in-camera so that shots of the real car fit perfectly into the simulated environment of the earlier generation games. The spot concludes with actual Xbox One footage featuring the in-game Ford GT within Forza Motorsport 6."
The game itself is scheduled for release on September 15, but a free demo is already available for Xbox One owners to download.
