A massive patch is rolling out to Forza Motorsport 7 owners tomorrow. Not only does it include a host of bug fixes, it also adds some much-requested content. Track limits have been upgraded and "Time Attack" mode is finally available to everyone. Community manager Brian Ekberg issued the following statement on the game's website, discussing the changes.

One of the biggest updates in Forza Motorsport history arrives this week! The August update for Forza Motorsport 7 will launch on... August 8 and it brings some highly anticipated features from the Forza community, loads of fixes and improvements... we've completely redrawn track limits for all track ribbons in the game, and we've given those updated track limits more clarity than ever with a new track limit illumination feature. August also brings the launch of Time Attack in Forza Motorsport 7. Any car, any class, any track – everything has a leaderboard now... Drift Mode has received some major upgrades. We've got a new drift scoring model and dedicated drift leaderboards. We're also making new drift suspension upgrades available to players and the Open Airfield is now accessible in Free Play.

The track limit changes were a much-needed addition and it's great to see that they're finally part of the game. Hopefully the simulator will keep on getting better and better as the months go by even though Forza Horizon 4 is right around the corner.

Keep an eye on for all the latest in Xbox and Windows 10 gaming, accessories, news, and reviews!
