Forza Motorsport 7 pre-load now available on Xbox One and Windows 10

If you've preordered Forza Motorsport 7, you can now get ready for the races ahead of launch. The game is now available to pre-load on Xbox One and Windows 10, allowing you to get the boring part out of the way and prepare to jump in the second the game has launched.

If you're hooked up to a particularly slow internet connection, pre-loading can be a godsend. And you'll likely need it: Turn 10 recently revealed that Forza 7 will weigh in at nearly 100GB on a standard Xbox One. It's likely even larger on Windows 10, but we'll have to wait and see.

Forza 7 will launch for everyone in full on October 3, but Ultimate Edition owners will be able to hit the track early on September 29. The game features a roster of more than 700 cars and a number of famous tracks from around the world. If you've preordered, you should be able to start loading the game on your console or PC now. If you haven't preorders are available starting at $59.99. A free demo is also available, which offers a small taste of what you can expect with the game's launch.
