During a short Q&A with some of the development team at this year's E3 after a behind closed doors presentation of the stunning-looking Forza 7, we asked the only really important question: "would we see Mt Panorama in the game, and have they gathered all-new assets for it to make the transition to 4K?".
The answer was yes, but came with a fact-checked caveat after all the enthusiasm had subsided, with the official line being "[we've] re-authored textures for 4K". What this means is they've likely gone back to their original source assets and re-authored those for 4K, rather than flying down to Australia and re-doing asset grabs for the new game. Either way it's good news, and the team actually confirmed all assets from previous Forza games weren't being used in Forza 7, with the whole game essentially being built again from scratch for the purpose of true native 4K, HDR and running at a silky smooth 60 frames per-second.
We'll have more on Forza 7 in the coming week as we offload all our E3 2017 info we've gathered, along with a lot more from, well, everyone. So stay tuned.
