Something that many folks may have skipped by is the in-game music. In Forza Motorsport it takes a much less prominent role than it does in the Horizon series, but it's still important and it still has a very central part to play in Forza 7.
And you'll no doubt be delighted to hear that your own music can feature in Forza 7 via OneDrive.
This isn't the first time we've seen this, last year's Forza Horizon 3 had Groove Music support built in to stream both your own and your Groove-selected tracks. In our session at E3 with the developers, specifically OneDrive was discussed as a source of music, but it'd be fairly easy to assume this would extend to full Groove Music support as in Forza Horizon 3.
So, how does it actually feature in Forza 7? In the Forzavista garage, you've got speakers as part of the decor, for want of a better term, and these will play music while you're in this area of the game. So if you've hooked up your own cloud-based music, it'll blast through these.
It'll also be heard from the in-grandstand speakers on the circuits you're racing on, which is a really neat idea and kicks up the immersive experience a little. Rather than just hearing it as background music as you do in Forza Horizon 3, it sounds like you'll catch a little piece of it as you storm past the grandstands.
It's not always about the visuals!
Forza Motorsport 7 will launch on October 3 on Xbox One and Windows 10, with an early access period beginning on September 29 for Ultimate Edition buyers.
