Turn 10 Studios has announced that its April Car Pack and
Content Update will drop for Forza Motorsport 7 on Tuesday, April 10th. As
revealed in the latest Forza Motorsport Week
in Review, this next update will include new features, bug fixes, and the
next batch of cars coming to the game. Additional details regarding the update
will be shared closer to its release date.
To coincide with the April Car Pack, fans will have the
opportunity to check out the April Car Pack Rivals Challenge to hot-lap the 1985
Nissan #83 Electramotive Engineering GTP ZX-Turbo – one of the new cars
featured in the upcoming Car Pack. This classic race car was mentioned in the
Week in Review before being sneakily removed.
The other six vehicles featured in the April Car Pack have
yet to be announced, but we do know its accompanying content update will
introduce an all-new Telemetry map in Spectate mode. This enhanced map will
offer viewers “a detailed look at the action on the track.”
“This Telemetry map is just one of the improvements coming
to Forza 7 in the near future, and is another example for our commitment to
making Forza Motorsport 7 the best place to both watch and play online racing,”
said Turn 10’s Community Manager Brian Ekberg.
In February, Turn 10 introduced two critical
esports features to Forza Motorsport 7 with its entirely-rebuilt ‘Spectate’
experience and ‘Seed the Grid’ manual reordering feature. In March, the team
enhanced the Spectate mode with new Ticker
and Telemetry functionality, and now in April, we’re receiving an all-new Telemetry
map. Since February, fans have received a monthly cadence of esports features
on top of the usual Car Pack with its accompanying fixes.
These esports features are preparing Forza Motorsport 7 in anticipation
of the return of the Forza
Racing Championship. The 2018 season
begins on April 2nd, but last weekend saw 18
invited drivers battle it out in Seattle, WA – the home of Turn 10 Studios
– to become Pre-Season Invitational Champion. The event saw F4H Motorsport
dominate in the team races – which were a first for ForzaRC, whilst G2 Laige, AMS
RoadRuner, and TX3 Lightning finished on the podium in the individual race events.
