Forza Week in Review 8-10-18
Brian Ekberg
Friday, August 10, 2018
www.forzamotorsport.net/news/wir_8_10_18

Be sure to read the article on the site or in the Forza Hub app for full details. Highlights below.

Quote:
This past Wednesday will live in my memory for a long time. Soon after we launched the August update for Forza Motorsport 7, myself and others around Turn 10 watched the Forza community light up with tweets, videos, streams and more, all reacting to the new features that arrived in the game. Today’s Week in Review comes on the heels of one of the biggest updates in Forza history, so let’s break it down!

DRIFT SUSPENSION & SCORING
  • "Now, players can upgrade any car in the game with a new drift suspension, allowing some extreme steering angle, which is completely tunable by the player."

TRACK LIMITS & TIME ATTACK
  • Updated track limits are a first step in implementing the Forza Race Regulations system, which is still under development. We introduced Track Limits first for a reason; to give players time to learn the new definition of “clean” laps across all tracks, with no threat of penalty (beyond the track being labeled “dirty). Expect to hear more about Forza Race Regulations in the coming months as we get closer to its release."

FORMULA DRIFT CAR PACK
Quote:
As a reminder, the Formula Drift Car Pack is available to players who digitally pre-order Forza Horizon 4, and the cars will be delivered in both Horizon 4 (at launch) and Forza Motorsport 7 (this fall).

Here’s all the cars coming to the Formula Drift pack:
1989 Formula Drift BMW 325i
1995 Formula Drift #118 Nissan 240SX
1996 Formula Drift #232 Nissan 240SX
1997 Formula Drift #777 Nissan 240SX
2006 Formula Drift Dodge Viper SRT10
2015 Formula Drift #13 Ford Mustang
2016 Formula Drift #530 HSV Maloo Gen-F

If you can’t get enough of the Formula D Car Pack, make sure you tune into this weekend’s Formula Drift event from St. Louis at formulad.com/live. We’ll be debuting the trailer for the Formula Drift Car Pack during Saturday’s halftime show broadcast, which will start approximately at 2:30 p.m. Pacific.

"If you missed Monday’s episode of “Forza Monthly” check out the full replay here:" https://youtu.be/-vh8Qg7S5FQ

MULTIPLAYER LOBBIES
  • "Alongside the August update, we’ve introduced a number of new multiplayer hoppers to Forza Motorsport 7, designed to give new players a gentle introduction into the world of online multiplayer in the game. Here’s a look at these new hoppers"
  • "And if you were paying close attention to our August Update Release Notes, you noticed that we fixed an annoying issue in the ABCS multiplayer hopper where players would stay in the same class race after race."

#FORZATHON
  • "In addition to events with cars on the line, we’ve got a couple of new events with some large amounts of credits available as rewards. With cars being unlocked in July, the goal is to give players more credits to work with in the game so they can drive the cars they want."

LEAGUES
  • "A new League Season starts this weekend! The “Hard Charging” season begins in Series 1 with a fun set of events featuring cars from the Sport Compact and Open-Wheel Legends divisions, and more."

#FORZAFRIDAY
  • "We’ll be kicking off the show a bit later than usual, at around 4 p.m. Pacific. With that in mind, we’ll extend a bit beyond our normal stopping time of 5 p.m. and I hope you can join me for our weekly wrap-up show on the official Forza Mixer channel. See you then!"
  • VOD: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/295683808
  • Random Ring Race: Mazda MX-5 Cup | D382 | 11.12.878

October Content Update and Forza Monthly Livestream

Quote:
The October update for Forza Motorsport 7 arrives on Tuesday, October 2! With this month’s update we’ve focused on numerous behind-the-scenes improvements to the game, as well as setting the stage for some important updates to come in the near future. In addition, we’ve got a brand-new Spotlight Car arriving at no additional charge for all Forza Motorsport 7 players, as well as the launch of the Formula Drift Car Pack.

One important change that Forza 7 players will notice in October is in-game messaging asking players to use any Forza 7 prize crates before the end of the month. As we said in our Forza Summer Update, prize crates are being removed from Forza Motorsport 7, and this will officially happen in November. Players will still have access to Driver Gear, badges, and Mod Cards but those items will not be available via prize crates starting next month. Look for more information on prize crate removal – and how players will still be able to access to Driver Gear, badges, and Mod Cards – next month.

October also sees the launch of the Formula D Car Pack in Forza Motorsport 7. This pack is available for players who pre-ordered the digital version of Forza Horizon 4 and the cars are available in both Horizon 4 and in Forza Motorsport 7.

To celebrate the launch of the Formula Drift cars in Forza 7, we’re kicking off October with a new Bounty Hunter event beginning on Wednesday, October 3. For the first time ever, we’re holding an open-tuning Drift Bounty Hunter. Players will be able to use any rear-wheel drive car in the game that they own and will be able to use any tune they wish. And your targets for the event? How about five Formula D drivers – Andy Hately (GT: Hateleydrift), Matt Field (GT: TheMattField777), Alec Hohnadell (GT: Hohnade118), Corey Hosford (GT: hossworth), Ryan Literal (GT: SD9K) and two Turn 10 developers known for their drifting skills in Devin Carraway (GT: SpaceLionDC) and Aaron Brooks (GT: Euro Nation). Get those Gamertags added to your Friends List now so you’ll know who you’re chasing as the event goes on. Also, be on the lookout for a new Rivals event celebrating the one-year anniversary of the release of Forza Motorsport 7; run a lap in the “Happy Birthday Forza Motorsport 7” event and you’ll earn yourself a cool 100,000 credits.


Now, here’s a closer look at our October Spotlight Car: 1986 Merkur #11 MAC Tools XR4Ti

Also in October, we’ll have a special Merkur Rivals event starring the XR4Ti race car. Everyone who sets a time in the game will receive a special exclusive car, the 1999 Lamborghini Diablo GTR!

You can hear more about October update in more depth by tuning into our October edition of ‘Forza Monthly’, which will air on Wednesday, October 3 at 1 p.m. Pacific on the official Forza Twitch and Mixer channels. In addition to kicking off our October Drift Bounty Hunter event live on the show, we’ll be diving deep into Forza Motorsport 7’s October’s changes with the folks at Turn 10 and looking ahead at what’s to come for the rest of 2018. If that’s not enough, we’ll be celebrating the release of Forza Horizon 4, recapping the ForzaRC Series 2 Playoffs in Mexico City, and looking ahead to the ForzaRC World Championships in London. Don’t miss the show!

Forza Week in Review 10-5-18

From the amazing Xbox launch of Forza Horizon 4 at the world-famous Goodwood House in Chichester, England, to the Series 2 Playoffs of the Forza Racing Championship in Mexico City, to the October edition of Forza Monthly coming to you from Seattle, this has been one of the most thrilling and exciting weeks in Forza history. Oh, and we’re also celebrating the one-year anniversary for the launch of Forza Motorsport 7 this week! There’s so much to cover in this mega-sized edition of the Week in Review, so let’s dive in and get going!

ForzaRC @ Mexico City
One long flight out of London and I found myself in Mexico City and the Forza Racing Championship Series 2 playoffs. Home to more than 20 million people, Mexico City is one of the world’s largest cities and the Auditorio Blackberry was the perfect place to bring more than 30 of the world’s best Forza drivers to determine who would be the Series 2 champ. Of course, only 12 of those drivers would compete in the Series 2 finals on Sunday, which meant that Friday and Saturday saw some harsh cuts as the field was whittled down to the final dozen drivers.

Standouts for Saturday included Sauber Zoom, who looked dominant in the qualifying rounds and was ready to live up to his stellar debut on the ForzaRC stage from the Series 1 Playoffs in Seattle. Noble b0x and G2 Laige also turned in strong performances, along with Veloce Racerz, who was looking like a dark horse winner coming into Saturday. Once the semi-finals rolled around, the competition took a serious step up.

With 24 drivers down to 12 for the Sunday Finals, the list of drivers looked like a Who’s Who of ForzaRC accomplishment, with all three Veloce drivers (Racerz, Virus, and ForceOne) getting into the Sunday races, albeit in three very different ways. We were set up for a fantastic Sunday of racing: https://youtu.be/uGvfRfCNhBE

Four races later and we had a new Series champion in G2 Laige, albeit in controversial fashion. The fourth and final race of the day featured some controversial no-penalty calls, despite no lack of carnage on the track. In the end, Laige was triumphant, with b0x coming in second place, and Williams Mitch once again securing his second podium finish in ForzaRC Series finals.

As we look ahead to the Forza Racing Championship World Finals, happening in London at the GFinity Areana on October 20 and 21, the storylines are beginning to take shape. Noble b0x and G2 Laige are two of the quickest drivers in the world and each have a Series Championship. Who will prevail? It will all be settled on the track in just over two weeks. Before that, be sure and tune in to our October 10 World Finals preview show over at watch.forzarc.com where we will be setting viewers up for all the storylines going into London. In addition, we’ll be sitting down with the GFinity marshalls to discuss the stewarding decisions made during the Series 2 finals. Look for insight into what goes into marshaling ForzaRC races, as well as a detailed breakdown of the action in the Series 2 Finals.

Forza Motorsport 7 October Update
On Tuesday, we launched the October Update for Forza Motorsport 7. This month’s update features some behind-the-scenes work that sets up some important changes that are coming to the game soon. Notably, prize crates will be removed from Forza 7 in November, replaced by a new Race Shop feature that will allow players to still get items like Mod Cards, Driver Gear, and badges. Players have until this month to use any prize crates they have before the new system arrives. Look for more details on the Forza Motorsport 7 Race Shop in the future. For car fans, October is a big month in Forza Motorsport 7. In addition to the release of the Formula D cars (which are also available in Forza Horizon 4), we also have our featured Spotlight Car – the 1986 Merkur #11 MAC Tools XR4Ti. As Forza 7 turns one year old this week, the team is looking ahead to what the next year will bring for the game. Which brings us to…

Forza Monthly | October
The October edition of Forza Monthly aired earlier this week, featuring a recap of all the Forza Horizon 4 launch at Goodwood, ForzaRC in Mexico City, and all the latest Forza Motorsport 7 news. We welcomed rally driver and Forza streaming host Verena Mei to the show to talk Forza Horizon 4, as well as her Friday show “#HeyWatchThis.” In addition we also spoke with Mellish about the past week’s ForzaRC action in Mexico City, and welcomed Chris Esaki and Aaron Brooks from Turn 10 back to the Forza Monthly couch to talk about the October update for the game.

During the Forza 7 conversation, Esaki and Brooks took a deep dive into the work that the team is doing around “Forza Fundamentals”, aka the building blocks that make Forza… well, Forza. Of particular note was work that Turn 10 is currently undertaking around collisions, driving physics, and force feedback wheel support for the game. The conversation was long, freewheeling, and deep and, if you have any interest in where Forza Motorsport is heading, this was must-see stuff.

Also on Wednesday’s show, we kicked off the October Bounty Hunter in Forza 7. For the first time, we’re holding an open drift Bounty Hunter event, where players can use any RWD car and players can tune to their hearts’ content. That tuning will be a crucial component to the action and I can’t wait to see the scores pile up on the leaderboard. In addition to taking on Turn 10 developers Aaron Brooks (GT: Euro Nation) and Devin Carraway (GT: SpaceLionDC), as well as Raceboy 77, you’ll also be going up against five Formula Drift drivers in this event. As always we’ve got fantastic prizes that players can win for taking part and for beating our star opponents. Here’s the details:
