Update: In the
Motorsport Week in Review, Turn 10’s Community Manager Brian Ekberg
revealed that the next episode of Forza Monthly will see the team “dipping back
into the world of Forza Horizon 4 and showing off some cool new stuff that
hasn’t been seen before.” Additionally, the livestream will include a detailed
breakdown of the August Content Update for Forza Motorsport 7. Ekberg also teased
that the broadcast will feature “special guests and an in-studio car that
you’re going to love.”

Turn 10 Studios has announced that its next episode of the ‘Forza
Monthly’ broadcast show from its purpose-built studio in Seattle, WA will debut
on Monday, August 6th. The show, dedicated to all-things Forza, will likely
focus on the August Content Update for Forza Motorsport 7, which is expected to
come accompanied by another Car Pack. It will air at 1pm Pacific (4pm Eastern, 9pm BST) on the official Forza Motorsport Mixer and Twitch channels.
Based on this screenshot tease, shared in a tweet from the official
Forza Motorsport handle, the livestream will also feature the Formula Drift
Car Pack – which will be made available for both Forza Motorsport 7 and Forza Horizon 4.
The car featured in the image is Josh Robinson’s Holden Maloo ‘Drift’ Ute,
which is undeniably a fitting choice of automobile for the Australian drifter –
and one that is sure to be enjoyed by the Forza drifting community. It comes
adorned in Hoonigan branding and features a slick livery that is sure to catch
the attention of almost everyone when it’s put sideways.
On last month’s Forza Monthly broadcast, Turn 10 revealed two
of the vehicles that would be featured in the Formula Drift Car Pack. Joining
the Holden Maloo ‘Drift’ Ute is Justin Pawlak’s competition-spec Ford Mustang
drift car with its adorning Roush Performance liver. The other cars featured in
this special pack have yet to be revealed, but you can expect to learn more details
about it in next week’s Forza Monthly livestream.
Turn 10 has yet to announce details on the August Content
Update for Forza Motorsport 7 or share a release date the Formula Drift Car
Pack. Recently, the developer announced that it would be removing
Prize Crates from the game later this year – with the Forza Tokens currency
system to not be introduced into Forza Motorsport 7 or Forza Horizon 4. There’s
also one additional Car Pack to be made available for Car Pass holders at no
additional cost, but it has yet to be confirmed whether this will be the
Formula Drift Car Pack. It will, however be included in digital
pre-orders of Forza Horizon 4 at no additional cost, and that will also grant
access to the pack on Forza Motorsport 7 as well.
In addition, there’s also a slate of upcoming features
promised for Forza Motorsport 7, which we’re likely to learn more about on next
week’s show. These include the new Forza Race Regulations adjudication system, the redrawn
track limits, the return of Time Attack Rivals leaderboards, and the new ‘Experimental’
Drift and Drag features. Turn 10 will also introduce new
features for drifting and drag racing in Forza Horizon 4 – and these will be
added to Forza Motorsport 7 in the future as well.
Last month’s episode of the Forza Monthly broadcast show focused
on the July
Content Update and Top Gear
Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 7, featuring the 2018 McLaren
720S and the 2017 Ferrari 812 Superfast. The update, which released on July
10th, made a change to the Car Collection system and unlocked 118 cars for
purchase that were previously
locked behind career progression. Vehicles were also removed from Prize
Crates, whilst the Car Selection screen received a much-needed speed
improvement to reduce noticeable slowdown and stutter. For more, be sure to
check out our
recap of last month’s show and stay tuned for our coverage of this month’s
episode next week.
