Ahead of Forza Motorsport 6‘s September 15th launch, and days after the demo was released for the Xbox One, the Forza Motorsport 6 TV ad has been released and showcases 40 years of racing in video games.
Of cours, the ad prominently features the 2017 Ford GT supercar, and cover vehicle of the upcoming racing game. It’s pretty cool to see the latest generation console graphics compared to the racing games of yesteryear as the Ford GT races through various racing games of the past. Games included in the add are Gran Trak 10 (Atari, 1974), Pole Position (Bandai Namco,1982), RC Pro Am (Rare, 1987), Chase HQ (Taito, 1988), Ridge Racer (Bandai Namco, 1993), and finally Forza Motorsport 6.
Creation of the ad was no small feat according to Xbox.
To place the photorealistic car inside the pixelated game worlds, Xbox photographed a real-life, multimillion dollar prototype of the Ford GT that was suspended within a motion-controlled hydraulic rig. Tracking markers were used in-camera so that shots of the real car fit perfectly into the simulated environment of the earlier generation games. The spot concludes with actual Xbox One footage featuring the in-game Ford GT withinForza Motorsport 6.
The full ad will air during this weekend’s telecast of the Formula One Italian Grand Prix. Check it out below!
Developed by twofifteenmccann and directed by Michael Spiccia, the ad features the song “Danger! High Voltage” which is performed by the band Electric Six from Detroit, Michigan. And as a bonus for you music lovers out there, here’s the original “Danger! High Voltage” video – it’s a bit… interesting.
