When news first broke that Turn 10’s massively popular Forza Motorsport series would be coming to the Windows 10 platform, many sim racers – myself included – were under the impression that the sim racing landscape would receive a much-needed kick in the ass. As someone who admittedly hasn’t played a Forza title since 2012’s Horizon, I assumed that a high-quality Turn 10 release would fill the void left by several eternal science projects; titles which ask their loyal audience to act as beta testers instead of sim racers. However, YouTube personality JSR Devon has uploaded a quick video today indicating that Forza Motorsport 6 suffers from its own unique set of problems.
Forza Motorsport 6 currently allows for a liberal interpretation of track limits, an issue which is comically demonstrated by vintage Can-Am entries plowing through massive tire barriers with virtually no detrimental effects to the car’s speed. JSR Devon claims the team at Turn 10 have basically ignored the community’s repeated complaints about the matter, stating that the exploits currently ruin a lot of leaderboard competitions and online races. With Turn 10 taking such an apathetic stance towards an integral part of the racing experience, it casts doubt on whether the developer will be able to appeal to the hardcore sim racers when the title eventually makes its way onto Windows 10 systems.
