The next installment of Turn 10's racing franchise slated for release in Fall 2011. It is set to feature 16 player online races, dynamic race conditions, cars from over 80 manufacturers, and compatibility with Kinect, both on and off the racetrack.
The new singleplayer mode is called World Tour. World Tour mode takes you to different locations. At each location a choice must be made for which event you want to participate in, much like the Season Play mode in Forza 3. These events will feature different racing modes, car classes and number of cars.
When you reach a new level you can now choose from multiple cars instead of only a single car. This brings more variation to the campaign as it depends on your garage to choose your next event just like in the previous game. Turn 10 has further expanded this feature by integrating their DLC to appear as options in the gift menu when you download it.
The game uses Kinect for both in game and for menu navigation.
Hyperlinks - Forza is known for a rather deep menu structure which is where Kinect hyperlinks come in: the user can, from anywhere in the menu such as quick race, jump to a specific screen by voice commands such as "Xbox, Auction House".
Steering - Basically, it's driving with an air wheel. This can be done with two players simultaneously, and is largely intended for a more casual experience. Throttle and brakes are both managed by the game.
Head tracking - With head tracking a player can look around in the cockpit mode just by moving his head. This makes it possible to look into a corner or glance into a rear view mirror. The sensitivity of this feature can be adjusted by the player.
Autovista allows the player to walk around cars and view them in more detail using both the regular Xbox 360 controller and Kinect. The doors and lids of the car can be opened and the player can get into car to take a closer look at the interior or to start the car and listen to the engine. More information about specific features of the car are available in textual and audio format. For example, by selecting a part of the car such as the hood, the hood will open to reveal the engine and facts about it. Not all cars featured in the game will be available in this mode.
