Get a Load of the Ford GT in the First Forza Motorsport 6 Trailer
Update: Ford confirms that the Shelby GT350 Mustang and Ford F-150 Raptor will also appear in Forza 6.
Forza Motorsport 6 is coming, folks. It’s coming, and it’s bringing all the fury of the Ford GT with it, and it will be here on September 15th.
Microsoft announced today at E3 that its exclusive racing series will return for the Xbox One this fall, complete with fully dynamic weather, 1080p at 60 fps, 450 different ForzaVista cars, 26 real-world environments, 24-car multiplayer, and holy friggin’ crap the Ford GT.

And, yes, all of the footage featured in the trailer is in-game. The only way you could possibly get a realer experience behind the wheel of a Ford GT would be to actually get behind the wheel of a Ford GT. This is the next best thing for folks who can’t just readily pony up $400,000 earned by not pitching in the majors like Justin Verlander. (Welcome back, Justin. Nice start against the Indians, big guy.)
Forza Motorsport 6 was originally announced earlier this year when it was revealed that the Ford GT supercar would be its cover vehicle. The announcement of an official release date is yet another huge notch on Microsoft’s belt on a day where it has already revealed Gears of War 4, Fallout 4 with mod support, and backwards compatibility. Your move, Sony.
