Yesterday, Microsoft hosted its monthly Inside Xbox show which discussed everything from No Man's Sky to Forza Motorsport 7. While the majority of gamers probably focused on the new "AAA" games coming to Xbox One soon like the former, Turn 10 Studios talked about some major upgrades to Forza Motorsport 7 as well.
Beforehand, it wasn't clear if you were about to go out of the track and get penalized while driving. Luckily, the developer will add clear track limits so that players know what they shouldn't cross. Having a raised edge is a great visual cue so you can try your best not to hit the "bumper" on the side.
Apart from that, leaderboards for each track with each car are coming back. Let's say you want to be the fastest with a Ferrari LaFerrari in Dubai. It's now possible to show that off.
While drag racing is already a part of Forza Motorsport 7, it's rather cumbersome because, instead of simply tweaking your ride and jumping back into the race, you have to reload the entire track again and wait for a really long time. In the coming months, the team will add experimental drag racing to the game which basically allows you to do lap after lap, modify your vehicle, and then try again. It loads instantaneously until you decide you're done and want to quit. This is what drag racing should've been like from the beginning. This mode won't support multiplayer initially because it's just a test at the moment.
In celebration of these announcements, Microsoft is giving gamers the chance to purchase Forza Motorsport 7 at a forty percent discount for the next day. If you love racing games, be sure to check this one out. The title runs at 4K 60 FPS on Xbox One X and supports Xbox Play Anywhere.
