Japanese Forza 6 website goes live early revealing night racing, wet weather, 450 cars and more

Hot on the heels of last year's Forza Horizon 2, Forza 6 is ready to take pole position this holiday season. The game was revealed earlier this year, and patient Forza fans have waited for fresh details ever since. If you're one of those people, today's your lucky day.

The Forza 6 Xbox Japan website (now offline) revealed a ton of tantalising details, many of which were probably slated for Microsoft's June 15th E3 conference.

...Breathtaking graphics at 1080px resolution and 50 frames per second. Wet weather, 3D puddles, and night racing test your driving skills. Cutting-edge ForzaTech™ engine powers the unrelenting action and stat-of-the-art-physics at simulation speed...

...Ultimate car fantasy - The most cars of any racing game this generation. More than 450 cars all immaculately recreated and customizable, and complete with working cockpits and full damage. Tour 26 world-famous locales including Daytone, Rio, and more...

...Never race alone - Home of the greatest racing, tuning and painting community in gaming. 2-player split-screen racing, 24-player races, and realistic Drivatar opponents deliver packed tracks and unrivaled action...

The website contained a few typos, including one that describes the frame rate as "50 FPS". Microsoft have confirmed to ICXM that Forza 6 will run at 60 FPS, certainly indicating that someone hit the green light on this website prematurely.

The site included some screenshots watermarked with "FPO", which sometimes means "for position only" in design. These might not be indicative of the final product, but they're impressive renders nonetheless.

Forza 6 will be playable at E3 as well according to the leaked site, so we'll hopefully have some hands on footage for you in the next couple of weeks. For now though, refresh your hype with the teaser trailer Microsoft launched back in January.
