Turn 10 Studios, the team behind Forza Motorsport has announced that the upcoming racer from Xbox Game Studios has gone gold. Originally posted on the Forza blog, the announcement shares that the studio has officially submitted Forza Motorsport for retail disc pressing.

Xbox and Windows 10/11 preloads

To celebrate Forza Motorsport going gold, Turn 10 Studios also initiated the ability to preload the game for users on Xbox Series X|S consoles and Windows 10/Windows 11 PCs.

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:
