Here is a list of supported wheels. Looks like all of the big name bases and wheels are supported. And being that FM is using an open API apprach, if your wheel is not on that “official” list, it likely will work anyways (and eventually supported some time after launch).
I loved the Forza series early on, I felt the amount of customization and tuning was one of the biggest draws. I was really disappointed with the last Forza due to the lack of all that in any meaningful way. I hope this one does that better.
When Forza was released for the OG Xbox, it had to compete against GT4 on PS2… and originally it wasn’t a very merciful comparison- if we only consider both games content wise.
On the realism side, they were quite evenly matched.
With console tech catching up to desktop tech in recent years, the line between console gaming and PC gaming is blurring with “sim” titles such as Assetto Corsa, Assetto Corsa Competizione, and Flight Simulator. We are seeing more cross-platform titles in all genres.
In addition to Forza Motorsport being cross platform (minus the playstation), EA’s upcoming WRC will be on all platforms. Also, what is great for the sim communities (racing and flight), the same peripherals that were PC only, are now becoming the norm on consoles.
FM and GT may continue to have the console stigma, but as each year passes, and cross-platform continues to be the norm, “sim”-ing will not matter which platform you are on… now we just need Eagle Dynamics to put DCS on a console.
I’ve watched a few reviews. They all seem to jive with each other on most aspects of the game. As it should be expected, FM will be a sim lite title. Content/value wise it continues to look great.
Here’s another take focusing more on the driving with a wheel. And a few laughs. Jimmy and his edits always entertain.
Just did the intro and first race. Not bad with my wheel. Lots more to come. My GF got me a PS5 for my birthday so I was playing GT 7 last night. Forza beats it so far just based on voice narration vs text narration
Looking forward to more seat time with this one and with GT 7.
