Xbox and Windows 10/11 preloads
Players who have preordered the Premium Edition or the Premium Add-ons Bundle will want to preload now to prepare for the early access period beginning on October 5.
Forza Motorsport is a disc hog, so you may need to clear off some space on your storage drive or pick up a new expansion card for your Xbox Series console before you preload. Here are the file sizes you can expect to need for Forza Motorsport per platform:
|Xbox Series X||133GB|
|Xbox Series S||100GB|
|Windows 10/11 PC via Microsoft Store||119GB|
|Steam||108GB Download size/118GB Installed size|
If you're playing Forza Motorsport on Steam, you must hold out a little longer before you can preload. Steam users can expect more preload information to be released closer to the October 5 early access period. The download size for Forza Motorsport on Steam will be approximately 108GB, while the fully installed file size will bump up to 118 GB.
Steam players get an opportunity to unlock and collect 15 trading cards in the game, which can be used to craft a special Steam badge. The Steam badge can then be leveled up to rank 5. Forza Motorsport-themed emotes, profile backgrounds, and avatars will also be available in the Steam Points Shop.
The next generation of Forza Motorsport is officially arriving on Oct. 10, 2023, and it's looking to be an incredible simulation racing game for Xbox and Windows PC. Preorder the Premium Edition to gain access as early as Oct. 5.
