• Fixed an issue where players entering Test Drive in a lobby just as the first car finishes the race will cause the player to disconnect from the session when the next race begins.

• Fixed an issue where the #Forzathon tile would occasionally display “Coming Soon” even when #Forzathon events were live.

Forza Monthly – July 2!
Earlier this month we introduced the first episode of our new monthly broadcast “Forza Monthly.” On the show, we showed off the new features coming in the June CU, including our Ford spotlight cars, new features, and more. We had so much fun that we’re doing it all again in July. The next episode of “Forza Monthly” will be broadcast on Monday, July 2, starting at 3 p.m. Pacific. In addition to talking about the recently wrapped Forza Racing Championship Series 1 Playoffs, we’ll be playing Forza Horizon 4 and answering viewer questions about Playground’s latest masterpiece, as well as showing off the July update for Forza Motorsport 7. We’ve got some truly special cars coming in July; you already know about the McLaren 720 S, which we announced on our June show. But if you were paying close attention to our Forza Twitter channel, you might have seen another. Here’s a refresher:


Yeah, it’s going to be a good show. Make sure you tune in on Mixer and Twitch on Monday and check out our DLC Clue Thread on the Forza Forums to get your best guesses in about our July lineup of cars!

Presumably the Mclaren 720s fanboys. And then presumably because the car they were wailing and gnashing their teeth over is going to be in the game. But perhaps those obvious answers somehow miss the mark.

So the July pack will be included in the Car Pass? I hate to look a gift horse in the mouth but, when did the Car Pass go from being the normal 6 months of car packs to all car packs?
AMD 2700X, Nvidia GTX 1080, 32gb DDR4 3400, Asus ROG Crosshair VII Hero, Samsung 950 Pro, Samsung 850 Evo.

May 17th/18th:
www.forzamotorsport.net/news/wir_5_18_18

But it's not "all" car packs. The Car Pass now includes June (Hoonigan) plus July plus another-presumably-August regular monthly packs. If there's some other special car pack for purchase in or after that time span, it's not (as announced) included.

It’s not so much hideous as it is just flat out boring to look at. It’s like they spent 90% of the project trying to make cool headlights and they forgot to design the rest of the car.

As boring and ugly as this car is ( which I fully agree compared to the 650/675), this thing is fast! Bone stock there's a guy on YouTube having this thing running consistent 9.9s at 142mph on stock tires... Smokes all of it's competition and then some.

If this is happening or is true then I won’t play Project Cars 2 anymore since the controls of driving or racing in that game is too hard to play. I can’t even beat one race in that game in which I always cane in last place since I tried to turn the corners and kept hitting the wall on every corner. Forza is better and easier and it has more cars then Project Cars 2 in which I’m happy that they are doing this. I love the 720S and can’t wait to customize or test drive it soon in FM7 soon.

Same here. Races are too hard and not enough cars to choose from in this game. Stick with Forza better. Controls are easier, more cars, and more customizable options.

It is happening in July.
Rules of troubleshooting:
1) Have you tried turning it off and on again?
2) Is your Internet working?
3) https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-live-status < Check here for service issues.
4) If all else fails open a service ticket and/or forum post.

Not that unpopular, actually. Many of the reviews I've read have been verrry ho-hum on the styling.

I think this and the Senna are signs of things to come from McLaren. Those lights will carry over in a few models and such. I'll probably grow to appreciate it, but I've never been excited about McLaren.

But on topic, thank you for adding it, it will be fun to drive. But since the speed is so great, they will have to give it mediocre handling to fit with the class.

Styling is very devise. It's like Marmite, you either love it or hate it. I personally think it's one of the best looking supercars I've ever seen. Now for the Senna erm...

Exciting announcement but it has nothing -- NOTHING -- on what PCARS2 has just done. Ho-ly COW, FM has its work cut out with these next two packs IMO.

Of all the things SMS can and can't do......they sure know how to make a trailer.


On to the 720S, it's not my personal favorite from McLaren, not even amongst their modern offerings, but I know this will be desired by a lot of players, and I look forward to taking it for a spin myself.
