Another big announcement from Microsoft's E3 2009 conference - this time that Turn Ten Studios will be releasing Forza 3
for the Xbox 360 by the end of the year.
According to the announcement Forza 3
should be hitting shelves in October this year and will again be an Xbox 360 exclusive.
New features for the game include the usual set of new cars and tracks, the figures for which have apparently swelled into the hundreds, as well as a new video editor and sharing utility. Players will now be able to cut and remix footage from their races and distribute this among friends whenever they wish.
Technically, Forza 3
should have a brand new engine too - one which will render everything in the game at a constantly smooth 60 frames per second.
There's few other details available about the game right now and Microsoft and Turn Ten haven't yet revealed any specific new tracks or cars, only a tentative promise that they'll be "hundreds of new vehicles
". More details will inevitably surface as E3 2009 continues, so we'll keep you posted about the announcements as we hear them.
