Turn 10 Studios’ Forza Motorsport 7 isn’t getting any younger, but that is not stopping the development team from continuing to provide a regular stream of new updates. The latest is the April 2019 update which drops on April 2. This update includes a healthy list of new content, changes, and fixes. One of the highlights is the addition of the 2018 McLaren Senna—the poster car from Forza Horizon 4. Here are more key features of the incoming update:
- Public beta of Forza Race Regulations:
Following the introduction of the Forza Race Regulation feature for invited players and Forza staff, a larger pool of players will be able to try it out this month during a public beta session. Details as to when it will be available will be announced later on in the month.
- Improvements to various car engine sounds:
The new update will bring improvements to various different car engines in the game, most notably that of the V12 engine audio. The engine audio of cars from a variety of manufacturers will be more defined, including Aston Martin, Ferrari, and Lamborghini. These updates will also fix bugs and “introduce new source material for several models”, including the likes of the “Mazda-2-rotor engines, and various Porsche and Nissan models.”
- ‘Exclusive’ cars will now be unlocked for purchaseThe massive roster of Motorsport 7 is now going to be a little more accessible for all the avid collectors out there. A whopping 35 previously ‘exclusive’ cars will now be unlocked for purchase in the in-game shop. The list includes entries like the 1998 TVR Cerbera Speed 12, 1993 Ford SVT Cobra R Forza Edition and 2013 Mercedes Benz A 45 AMG Forza Edition, just to name a few. With these cars now being unlocked, the only vehicles that will remain locked (at least for the time being) are the pre-order cars and “any cars that are part of the Forza Driver’s Cup career reward structure”.
