Forza Motorsport 7's March update brings new spectator features and more

Turn 10 Studios has taken the wraps off of what Forza Motorsport 7 players can expect with the game's latest monthly update, including a few new features and a batch of new cars. For March, Turn 10 has added a couple of enhancements to the recently introduced Spectate mode, along with updates to the Livery Editor. Seven new cars are also on offer with the new March Car Pack.

For Spectate mode, players watching online races can now keep an eye on crucial information about the race and its participating drivers with the Spectate Ticker and Telemetry features. With the Spectate Ticker, a persistent loop of information like time intervals, distance gap, lap times, and race order changes, will be available to spectators. The race host can choose which data types are on the loop at any given time, or simply allow all data types to cycle.

Spectate Telemetry us similar, in that is allows spectators to get more information about each driver. Turn 10 says the screen has been redesigned for Forza Motorsport 7 and is off by default. With it turned on, however, spectators can scroll through data for drivers, including car specs, dashboard, telemetry, damage, tire heat, and much more.

Lastly, the Livery Editor has been updated with some quality-of-life improvements. Players looking to jazz up their cars will find a number of enhancements in the Livery Editor, including mirror and flip options on the layer select scree, along with the ability to save favorite colors and more.

Lastly, March brings another car pack, adding the following seven cars to the game's growing lineup:

  • 1932 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Spider
  • 1983 Jaguar #44 Group 44 XJR-5
  • 1988 Nissan #33 Bob Sharp Racing 300ZX
  • 1977 Brabham #8 Motor Racing Developments BT45B
  • 2017 Lincoln Continental
  • 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2
  • 2017 Volvo XC90 R-Design

The Forza Motorsport 7 March update, along with the March Car Pass, will be available starting on March 7.
