The new instalment in the Forza franchise looks to welcome new players to the popular racing series. With a new 12-event "Showcase Tour", players will be introduced to sweet cars and unique automotive match-ups via entertaining videos. Show hosts James May and Richard Hammond, best known for their years on BBC's Top Gear, will be a couple of the automotive celebrities who are narrating the Tour. The Spotlight Series features new "Showcase-style" events that will be updated every day. Challenges range from racing around Brands Hatch in the rain in an all-wheel drive car, to trying your best to catch The Stig from Top Gear.

A new objective and scoring system will feature in the upcoming game too. Players will be challenged to increase their skill and compare scores with others. Each event will be different from others and developer Turn 10 promises that these events will offer unending replay value.

Drivatar opponents will make a return in the upcoming Forza, along with Forzavista. A hand-picked selection of "63 fully functioning Forzavista-enable cars, each with working cockpoits and full damage" will be featured in the title. Turn 10 details the large variety of cars that will be ready to drive from the fine range from Audi, Ford and more:

With bleeding edge race cars like the 2014 Audi #2 Audi Team Joest R18 e-tron quattro, modern masterpieces like the 2017 Ford GT, and classic American Muscle like the 1973 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am SD-455, the cars in Forza Motorsport 6: Apex represent the far-reaching diversity that is part of Forza’s DNA.
Six locations will be ready to have their roads burned with rubber -- Brands Hatch, Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Rio de Janeiro, Sebring International Raceway, Top Gear and Yas Marina. Each location will include night and wet-weather variations and there will be 20 track configurations across the six different locations.
