Since the launch of Forza Motorsport 7 on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, we’ve been energized by our fans’ feedback and engagement. We’re excited to share that with the release of Forza Motorsport 7, starting with early access in September, and the continued success of Forza Horizon 3, the Forza franchise has had its biggest months to date. In September alone, more than 7.9 million unique players raced in the Forza community. Our fans’ support and feedback continue to drive the team. Last week, we released a major update to Forza Motorsport 7, including new features and fixes for all players as well as the Xbox One X version of the game – unleashing the true power of X. This update is available for free for all Forza Motorsport 7 owners on Windows 10 PCs, Xbox One, Xbox One S, and the new Xbox One X.
Unleash the Power of X
The most beautiful, authentic and comprehensive racing game we’ve ever made is now available on the Xbox One X in native 4K and HDR at a solid 60 frames per second. Forza Motorsport 7 was built from the ground up for Xbox One X, allowing the game to take advantage of all six teraflops of power to create the most immersive and visually-stunning racing experience available on console. With razor sharp detail, new effects and ultra-high-resolution assets as well as refinements in overall lighting, shadows, and reflections, Forza Motorsport 7 is beyond enhanced on the Xbox One X.
Auction House, Forzathon & More!
The new update brings with it a suite of fan favorite features. Our online multiplayer playground is expanding with Drag, Tag, Virus, Keep the It and Pass the It, offering new ways to challenge and compete with friends and rivals alike. Auction House is also returning, allowing players to wheel-and-deal with the community in hopes of scoring a sleek new ride or a windfall of credits. And most exciting of all, we are pleased to announce the return of Forzathon, where players can race around the track in some of the most challenging events to win prizes, including exclusive cars. Keep an eye out for the #Forzathon events to get started next week.
