Forza 7 August Update Adds Updated Track Limits and New Time Attack Options

Turn 10 Details what it describes as one of the biggest updates in Forza Motorsport history.

Turn 10 is delivering on its promise to provide continued support to Forza Motorsport 7, with yet another big update arriving this week. The Forza 7 August Update brings with it numerous tweaks, changes and additions, including new track limits and more Time Attack options.

The Forza 7 August Update is set to release on Wednesday, August 8, with its headline feature being updated track limits. This might not sound like a big deal for casual observers, but these new track outlines (which determine if you are deemed to be driving dirty by going off-track) are set to radically change the way players can drive the many courses in the game. To get the hang of these new limits, players will be able illuminate the new outlines.

Time Attack options for players are also being overhauled, with leaderboards being added for all car, class, and track options. Turn 10 says this is one of the most requested features from the Forza community.

Drift racing has also been changed, with a new drift scoring model, dedicated leaderboards, and new drift suspension upgrades. The Open Airfield is also being unlocked for use in Free Play, and a new Spotlight car is being added in the form of the 1989 Aston Martin #18 Aston Martin AMR1.

While Turn 10 continues to improve Forza 4, sister studio Playground Games is hard at work on Forza Horizon 4. The game, which introduces the four seasons to the game world, releases on October 2, 2018. For more info, head over to our Forza Horizon 4 guide page.
