Today we released the most recent update for Forza Motorsport 7. This update addresses numerous issues on both the Xbox One and PC versions of the game, including:

• Fixed an issue where tracks would disappear after a player uses repeated rewinds in a race.
• Fixed an issue where some players’ Forza Rewards gifts were not saving properly after they were initially revealed in game.
• We’ve addressed a game exploit whereby players could use Forza Edition cars to gain unrealistic leveling and rewards. In the interest of maintaining game balance, we have instituted rewards changes for all Forza Edition cars, replacing flat XP secondary rewards with a percentage-based credit (CR) reward. With this update, all Forza Edition cars will offer a primary percentage CR reward and a secondary conditional percentage CR reward. All VIP Forza Edition cars will now offer a primary +50% CR reward and a secondary conditional +50% CR reward. For example, the 2000 Nissan Silvia Spec-R Forza Edition previously offered a primary CR reward of +25% and a secondary flat +5,000 XP award after 3 good drifts in a race. With this update, the Silvia now offers a primary reward of +25% CR and a secondary reward of +25% CR after 3 good drifts in a race. As a further example, the 2014 BMW M4 Coupe Forza Edition (a VIP FE car) previously offered a primary +40% CR reward and a secondary flat +10,000 XP reward at the Nürburgring. With the update, the BMW now offers a primary +50% CR reward and a secondary +50% CR reward at the Nürburgring.
• Addressed an issue where the game would crash during Driver Level Rewards screen, causing extra level-up rewards to be available.
• PC and Multiplayer stability fixes.

Over the past few weeks we have been investigating an issue where a small number of players’ game saves were deleted and unrecoverable if their save was corrupted or if they ran into a connected storage error. As part of our investigation, we have been closely working with the Xbox team to address the issue. In addition to recently introduced platform changes, today’s FM7 update includes a pop-up error notice that will prevent players from mistakenly deleting their game save should they enter this state.

While we believe the Xbox update will prevent players from entering this state going forward, players who receive this pop-up error in the game will be prevented from continuing in the game and will be asked to contact Forza support for further assistance. This will prevent the player from unwittingly deleting their save (though players will have the option to manually delete the save if they wish).

We regret the trouble this issue has caused for players.

In addition to the above, today’s update for Forza 7 includes the following improvements:

• Fixed an issue where players were running into black loading screens in some multiplayer and League sessions and being removed from the race.
• Fixed an issue where, when entering a multiplayer lobby with Text to Speech or Speech to Text active, navigation would not be possible. In addition, players can now close the text window with use of a keyboard.
• Fixed an issue with the Bugatti Type 35, which prevented it from racing in Forza Driver’s Cup races.
