Sound is crucial to an immersive experience, and so even Chase Combs, the game’s audio director, has spent the last two years trying to find ways to make Forza 7 grab the attention of your ears as much as your eyes. That starts with abandoning the sweeping cinematic score of Forza 6 in favor of a soundtrack you might mistake for what’s found in modern-day beer commercials.

“We ended up kind of going with something that felt a little more rooted in what you might hear in a garage, you know? That automotive spirit,” Combs says.

But Combs and his team went further than just shifting genres. The music in the game (which you can customize with your own songs if you’re not big fan of power chords) follows you as you hop around the different environments. It also dynamically adapts to those environments.

Go from the main menus to the garage to start tuning one of your cars, and suddenly the music sounds like it’s coming from a radio on the other side of the room. Hop into Forzavista mode, get in the car, and it will muffle. Jump over to the car selection menu, where your character is standing on a stage, and the music sounds like it’s coming through stadium speakers.

This follows through to the races, too. As you drive around each course, the game’s soundtrack will flash by you as you pass the track’s speakers.

“A goal of mine,” Combs says, was to “make [the music] a character in the game, not just something that we lay on top of the game and people kind of turn off. I wanted to make it feel like it was actually seated in the environment.”

So I got all nostalgic last night and put on a YouTube playlist of the the Forza 2 soundtrack. It got me thinking how lame the in-game soundtrack has been from FM3 onwards, unremarkable waiting room / elevator music.

Can we please in FM7 have something a bit more akin to FM2's soundtrack. I know the royalty costs are probably more than employing one guy to compose generic electro-chill out music, but even still.

I LOVED the soundtrack to Forza 6. The music in 3 and 4 was okay, and 5 was way over the top and didn't fit the game at all. But Forza 6 they got it perfect. I'm kind of sad they didn't stick with that style for Forza 7, but c'est la vie.

In more direct answer to the OP, Forza 7 has a more rock influenced soundtrack, though I don't think it will have any tracks from popular artists. As far as I know, Kaveh Cohen and Michael Nielsen (who did the music for Forza 6) have composed/produced the Forza 7 soundtrack as well.

See this video, you can hear the music in the background: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjafC6JH2UU

I think its pretty awesome that the game also chooses to turn off the in-race music by default. The only music I need is the symphony of roaring engines :D

Yeah Forza 5 OST was atrocious. Forza 6 had a pretty solid OST, I think we should save the mainstream music for the Horizon games.

Well I did not buy for the music as with all my games music will be turned off or volume for it set to zero so it matters not at all to me what it is. But if you like it then enjoy the music.

The background music has a nice psychological effect on the racing brain and needs to be retained in FM7, in whatever fashion, hopefully as cool as the music in FM6!

I knew my fears would be confirmed. What happened to the awesome music in Forza 1 and 2? Why can't they use a more hard rock driven soundtrack here? Forza 5's soundtrack was bad and odd in comparison, and Forza 6's soundtrack was a step above Forza 5's but still not an improvement.

Seems cool for me, especially like the effect that at the track the music sounds like it's coming from the speakers at the race-track. It's similar to Dirt4.

Anyway I also liked Forza 6 menu music. Background music should be something like that - it shouldn't be too dominant, it's BACKGROUND. My favourite music style is technical brutal death metal but I wouldn't like to hear that in a racing game, such loud and agressive tunes would distract me from the game. Those soft rock pieces heard in the video linked above seems to be a great choice. Also a good idea to keep it instrumental - songs with vocals and lyrics become repetitive in a much shorter time.

Is there any additional information on Groove Music in Forza 7? I just want to know how Groove will work in the game and if ALL MP3 files in your OneDrive will definitely work, thanks.

I watched a video on it, where it was claimed that there were speakers set around the various tracks. The music was louder when you got closer to them, and quieter as you get further away from them. Those speakers would work from the Groove Music thingy. I'm not sure how accurate that is, I can't recall a source ever being mentioned.

If it turns out to be true, that's a nice touch.

Video here.

If music is pumping round the speakers on track, that'd be an awesome touch!

It does.

The thing is that I want the option to disable music altogether, including the speakers, think of streamers and the risk of getting their videos taken down for copyright infringiment...

The trackside/garageside speaker stuff sounds super gimmicky. But I loved the sound direction in Forza 6 - loathed it in Forza 5 - and loved it in 4 and 3, both of which have a welcome place in my chillout playlist. So naturally I'm keen to see what sounds we see this time around.

I'd imagine there'd be the option to do that, it sounds like it's optional anyway as it'd be going through Groove Music. More than likely be some sliders in the settings to change the volumes of various things, like sound effects, music etc.

I'd say it lies on the good side of gimmicky though, not like those wipers that look like they're in an earthquake!

If that's the type of music that was in the Forza 7 demo then it will be permanently muted.
Forza 3/4/5 epic sound tracks.
Bring back Lance Hayes.

Just go and listen to Paris Rouen then you will see what I mean.
