Forza Motorsport 7: Umfangreiches Februar Update mit Spectator-Modus, Seed the Grid, besseren Ladezeiten und mehr

Turn 10 Studios hat ein umfangreiches Februar Update ausgerollt und stellt neue Features wie den Spectator-Modus vor.

Spectate und Seed the Grid: Zwei neue Forza Motorsport7 Features, die sich als eines der gefragtesten Features der Forza-Fans erwiesen haben, wurden umgesetzt. Beide Features wurden in Forza Motorsport 7 neu konzipiert, umgebaut und für die eSports-Ausstrahlung optimiert.

Zuschauermodus: Mit Spectate können Spieler in öffentliche und private Lobbys einsteigen und die Rennen sehen, wie sie gerade passieren. Bei Forza Motorsport 7 haben die Entwickler großen Wert auf die Leistung mit Spectate gelegt. Die Zuschauer werden eine dramatisch verbesserte Bewegung des Autos bemerken, wenn sie sich Rennen ansehen – keine stotternden oder zitternden Autos. Das Live-Spektakel bietet jetzt die gleiche Bewegungsqualität wie beim Abspielen gespeicherter Replays. Turn 10 hat auch die Positionierung des Autos dramatisch verbessert und das alte prädikative Positionssystem, das fehleranfällig war, abgeschafft. Jetzt ist die Fahrzeugposition im Spectate-Modus vollständig korrekt. Diese erhöhte Wiedergabetreue verhindert Auto-Jittering und Phantom-Kollisionen, was zu einem dramatisch verbesserten Seherlebnis führt.

Mit der neuen Seed-the-Grid-Funktion von Forza Motorsport 7 haben Lobby-Gastgeber nun die Möglichkeit, das Rennraster nach eigenem Ermessen festzulegen. Vor dem Rennen können die Gastgeber „Gitterreihenfolge“ aus dem Menü auswählen, um das Rennraster manuell neu zu ordnen. Hosts können jeden beliebigen Spieler überall im Grid bewegen und neue UI-Elemente heben zusätzliche Informationen zur Spielerpositionierung hervor. Zuschauende Spieler werden automatisch in den hinteren Bereich des Rasters verschoben, unabhängig davon, wo sie im Raster platziert sind.

Zusätzlich zu den Features „Spectate“ und „Seed the Grid“ hat Turn 10 Studios hart daran gearbeitet, die Ladezeiten im Multiplayer und die Leistung in Forza Motorsport 7 zu verbessern. Neue Verbesserungen hinter den Kulissen bedeuten, dass das Spiel Autos lädt, sobald der Spieler auf die Strecke kommt. Das Ergebnis ist ein schnelleres Laden in die Strecke und auf das Rennen.
