So this was mainly inevitable. FM6 was 588 cars after all DLC, although that included calling 3 Nascar vehicles 24 due to different paint jobs. Over 700 cars at launch is thus around 150 more. Hopefully they bring back more brands rather than just adding more obscure Ferraris and Porsches. Previous Forza games have had Saab, Joss, Rossion, RUF, Austin-Healey, Bertone, and plenty more that we haven't seen in a good while! Presumably VW will be back after they were on a break for Horizon 3.

 

 

This has some good news for some of you I know, they're bringing back Maple Valley at least from earlier games :). Also of course the Dubai one they showed off in a big way, but it is not clear if that is a circuit or maybe a return to point to point racing. The claim of "over 30 locations" is a bit disappointing, given that FM6 has 28 after the DLCs. Hopefully they don't skimp as the new tracks are clearly the big pull for a lot of people, rather than the 150 new cars.

 

There was also a mention that puddles will change over time rather than being identical lap after lap, and that's some nice realism. I find it interesting that they are not tying this to the release of Scorpio ... yeah still a much better name ... and seemingly not doing a special edition console. Sad. Especially with the whole 4k thing and hopefully some extra special stuff for those of us with that technology. I also look forward to less time in loading screens lol.

AR12, for all of how annoying he is, is useful for news. Says the Italian track Mugello will be returning to the series as well.

 

Also they are assembling car and track lists at https://ar12gaming.c...orza-7-car-list

Amazing how the thrill of witnessing a world exclusive supercar reveal can be deflated by it being just another 911.

Yeah, I feel like the same would be true of so many cars these days. It's all iteration without much imagination.

 

Forzathon has also been confirmed to be coming to FM7. With less focus on skills and such, it will be interesting to see what they do with that. Maybe just as simple as specific races, but maybe there will be time trials and such as well. They -have- to do something to make it interesting after the first few months when one has finished the rest of the game. They really failed on that with Horizon 3.

Nice.

 

New tracks is what I care about for this game, I really don't gaf about the cars  :blush:

Hopefully they stick to the usual gameplay and don't take a leaf out of Horizon 3's book and focus on tricks

 

 

Now I have just under 4 months to finish the races I have left in 6!

They release Forza games faster than I can play them, but that may say more about how much I play racing games and less about them.

I think you might be right lol. Based on the sub-40 levels of some of these guys we've had nights with recently, only two or three of us really play the games :)

I'm only level 500-something.  520ish?  I can't remember now.

Hopefully I'll hit 600 before I finish :D

I'm a few hundred in both games i think? Finished, or got most of the way through all Forza's since Forza 1.

 

And will be getting F7, have a strong feeling that the car sounds/backfires etc will be better than Gran Turismo once again, and the sounds were one of the main things that got me playing Forza way back in the day.

 

 

 

Dan Greenawalt confirmed at the Xbox Media Showcase that Volkswagen will be making its return to Forza after the brand was left out of Forza Horizon 3.

I'm pretty slack when it comes to SP Forza. Haven't really progressed that far in any of the games. Guess i'll need to fiend some more.

Well you do have the worst achievement in 6 already, so it's just a matter of the grind to catch 'em all

Not much news of tracks from Forza, but Project CARS 2 (no not Project CATS, phone, that's different!) is now up to 60 unique locations in their offerings, with 8 motorsport disciplines represented. The competition can only be good, but I feel like Turn 10 is putting a lot of eggs in the 4k60 basket at this point!

Fair question to which I am very much tending on the negative, but I don't know for sure and can't find an answer out there :(

they don't allow it currently? Wow that's crazy

I haven't played split screen for a really long time but thought having AI was a given in racing games
