The tenth game in the Forza series is here! Forza Motorsport 7 include over 700 cars with some great improvements and some new features that are added.
The Forza series is one of the iconic exclusive game series in Microsoft’s Xbox consoles. There are two main games in the series, Horizon and Motorsport. Horizon is an open world racing game which is more relaxed and has players roaming over large landscapes. Motorsport is where things get a bit more serious. Track racing!
The Forza series is developed by Turn 10 studios which was established by Microsoft originally to work on Forza games. Microsoft has a good history of creating these great exclusive studios but will Turn 10 also break out to start developing for other platforms like Bungee did? Time will tell, but until then we are happy to play these wonderful Forza games that Turn 10 brings out.
As I mentioned above Forza Motorsport 7 is all about track racing but it doesn’t mean that it is limited, quite the opposite. From Kart racing to Artic Trucks, there is something for everyone and with all these types of cars to collect and race your will spend hours trying different things and modes. The only sad part is that no Toyota road cars feature in the game because of licensing which is really weird, but at least some racing versions are available. FM 7 also made some history at E3 together with Porsche by launching the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS at the expo. This is a first for E3 and a first where a car was launched with a video game.
The Career mode is again crazy fun and now you have some customisable driver options. You can start your career in a few different areas where you feel comfortable and build yourself up to be the next great driver. When you start your journey, the game will take you through a little “show” of what you can expect with three different drivers and what made them famous.
Dynamic weather is also new in FM7 but it was present in Forza Horizon 3, so it is great to see it in the Motorsport series as well. Over 32 tracks return together with some new ones, the Dubai street track is one of these new tracks and it is a beautiful track to play.
So, as you can see there is a lot to sink your teeth into in Forza Motorsport 7 and with DLCs and online modes you will be racing for months. It is not second guess that FM7 needs to be in your Xbox arsenal.
