Forza Motorsport 7 goes gold, demo coming on September 19

The Forza team has announced that the latest entry in the series, Forza Motorsport 7 has officially gone gold, meaning the code for the release version is now finalized and sent out for mass production and packaging. However, the more exciting news for Forza fans is that a demo version of Forza 7 is just around the corner.

Both Xbox One and Windows 10 gamers will be able to get their hands on a Forza Motorsport 7 demo starting on September 19. If you've never played a Forza game, or are just itching to try the latest out, then the demo will be a good opportunity to do so ahead of release. In all, the demo is meant to showcase three different experiences, ranging from driving the Porsche 911 GT2 RS cover car on the game's new Dubai circuit, to piloting the Mercedes-Benz Tankpool racing truck around the Mugello circuit in Italy. Lastly, the demo will let you take the Nissan NISMO GT-R LM for a spin around the Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit with Forza 7's full range of dynamic track conditions on display.

Lastly, a new Forza commercial premiered today, showing off a bit of "musical cars" with comedian Adam Corolla and professional rally driver Ken Block. Check it out below:

Forza Motorsport 7 is set to launch in full on October 3, but Ultimate Edition owners can dive in early on September 29. The game will feature a roster of more than 700 cars, and a number of famous tracks from around the world. And if you plan on picking up an Xbox One X, Forza 7 will take full advantage of the console's extra horsepower with boosted visuals. If you're down to hop into the driver's seat, you can preorder Forza 7 starting at $59.99 now.
