The latest update for Forza Motorsport 7 is here with a couple of highly requested features and a new car pack. For February, developer Turn 10 Studios has brought back Spectate and Seed the Grid features in preparation for the upcoming Forza Racing Championship. Players can also get their hands on seven new cars as part of the Dell Gaming Car Pack.
Spectate and Seed the Grid are both features returning from Forza Motorsport 7, but with some added improvements. Spectate, as you'd expect, will allow you to hop into lobbies and view races as they happen, but Turn 10 says is has "dramatically improved car movement when spectating races." Spectators shouldn't notice any stuttering or jittery cars, and Turn 10 says live spectating should now be the same quality as watching saved replays.
Seed the Grid allows lobby hosts to manage the race grid order before a race starts by choosing "Grid Order" from the menu. The feature has been improved with new UI elements to "highlight additional information on player positioning," Turn 10 says.
While Spectate and Seed the Grid are the major highlights of this update, a large number of bug fixes and performance improvements are tagging along as well. You can find the full list of fixes in the official release notes.
Lastly, the Dell Gaming Car Pack is now available as part of the Forza Motorsport 7 Car Pass, adding a batch of seven new cars to Forza 7's more than 700 vehicles. Here's a look at what's included:
- 2018 Bugatti Chiron
- 2018 Kia Stinger
- 2016 Audi #17 Rotek Racing TT RS
- 2017 Aston Martin Racing V12 Vantage GT3 #7
- 2017 Ram 2500 Power Wagon
- 1968 Holden HK Monaro GTS 327
- 2018 Dodge Durango SRT
Forza 7 Car Pass owners should be able to get their hands on the Dell Gaming Car Pack now. The pack, like others, presumably will be available as a separate purchase for $6.99.
