The reveal of Forza Motorsport 8's gameplay last week was undoubtedly one of the high points of the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase 2022, and it was revealed at the time that the game would feature "on-track raytracing".

It seems some people might have been a bit sceptical of this, as Creative Director Chris Esaki used the latest episode of the Forza Monthly show on YouTube to confirm that ray tracing is very much a gameplay feature in the new Forza Motorsport, and it's not just limited to things like replays and Photo Mode:

"Ray tracing's here. It's on-track, and most importantly, it's real-time gameplay. I really want to make that clear. When we say on-track, we don't mean it's only in replays or Photo Mode on-track and [we're] being funny with words - we're not trying to mislead you here.

When you are racing, when you are playing the game, ray tracing is on."

Great news, then! There were also lots of other behind-the-scenes details revealed about Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon 5's upcoming Hot Wheels DLC at the Forza Monthly show, which you can check out in the video above.
