Some early footage of the upcoming Forza Motorsport reboot is starting to creep out of the Gamescom 2023 show floor, and we're rather impressed with what we're seeing here. Up above we have a short gameplay clip from a fan racing around the returning Mugello circuit, and it's all seen a massive upgrade on Xbox Series X.

The game's new ray traced global illumination is putting in work here, and we think this looks like a decent upgrade over any footage we've seen in recent months. Of course, the video quality isn't the best, but the Gamescom version of FM certainly looks like a more recent build than we've been seeing as of late.

That makes sense given that we're only about six weeks out from launch at this point. Forza Motorsport early access begins October 5th (before the Game Pass launch on Oct. 10), and if this footage is anything to go by, racing fanatics have plenty to look forward to on Xbox this fall.

Speaking of things to look forward to, we may be treated to some direct-from-source Forza footage this week as well. Xbox is planning on showcasing Forza Motorsport in some fashion during tomorrow's Gamescom livestream, so be on the look out for that! Details on the full livestream schedule are available down below.
