#TuesdayDrive and January Bounty Hunter Rivals

Join in for the #TuesdayDrive at 1 p.m. Pacific on Mixer and Twitch. I will be putting in some laps in the January Bounty Hunter event to see if I am still better with a controller, doing some multi-player drift rounds, and racing with whoever wants to get in on the fun.

Last week we took a look at the cars of the January Totino’s Car Pack, but we will take another look at this amazing car pack and talk about the cars in detail as we see where they are all best suited to race. See you there!

It’s been a week now that our January Bounty Hunter event has been running. You are up against me – GT: Johniwanna – at Mugello, in the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST with traffic cars getting in your way. The event ends at midnight Pacific time on January 31. I will set my last time by end of day January 30.

NEW COMMUNITY LIAISON MEMBER
"We’re welcoming a new member to the Community Support team this week. Chris Day has been with Microsoft for a few years now but joined Turn 10 this week to help as a Community Liaison, working alongside Nitro Glitter and SOY to help solve problems for Forza players. Here’s more from Chris in his own words: Hi all! My name is Chris (GT: Zak TwoPunch)! I'm super excited to be here at Turn 10 and have the opportunity to work with such a passionate community. I've been working on various Microsoft products and teams over the 3 years that I've been here. Gaming has been an important part of my life since age 4, when my Mom bought me a SNES and Donkey Kong Country. These days I'm primarily a PC gamer, though I do dabble with all the other systems. I am also attending Full Sail University online, pursuing a degree in Game Design. When not working, gaming, or doing schoolwork, I love to spend time with my adorable Havamalt puppy that I would love to share pictures of to anyone willing to look."

After this issue is corrected, we’ll be extending current and adding new #Forzathon events to the game. Until that time, we will be leaving the current #Forzathon events in place.

ESPORTS FEATURES COMING TO FORZA7
Quote:
We’re always looking for new ways to deliver a phenomenal experience to both players and fans alike and we’ve got a number of new, esports-centric features lined up for Forza Motorsport 7. Today, we’re excited to share the first two features: Spectate and Seed the Grid. These exciting features are a cornerstone of the Forza Motorsport 7 esports experience and, since they last appeared in Forza Motorsport 6, have been rethought and redeveloped from the ground up for Forza Motorsport 7 to deliver a dramatically improved on-track experience for both drivers and viewers:

Spectate
Watch live multiplayer races with our brand new Spectate feature. Improved camera transitions and performance means you’ll never miss the action. Positioning data for on-track cars is 100% precise as well, which means that what players see in Spectate is exactly what’s happening in the race.

Seed the Grid
Players will be able to set up multiplayer races just as they like with the new Seed the Grid feature. Lobby hosts can now manually set the grid order during race setup, and a completely overhauled interface offers hosts and viewers alike new details, like real-time player grid position changes.

Both Spectate and Seed the Grid will be added as part of our February content update for Forza Motorsport 7 and represent just the start of our esports feature set.

LEAGUES
  • New "Marching Motors" Season events begin Feb. 24
