Forza Motorsport 7's June content update now available to download

James Allen On June 8, 2018

The latest content update for Forza Motorsport 7 has been released, bringing several features and refinements to the title.

Summarised before the update's release in a 'Forza Monthly' preview video, the June content update for Forza Motorsport 7 is mostly focused on refining the game's multiplayer mode. New race setup options and password protection are now open to players when setting up private lobbies, and it's now possible to adjust tune setups on the fly when test driving cars in multiplayer lobbies.

A multi-class multiplayer racing mode has also been introduced to Forza Motorsport 7 in this new update, boasting improvements over the system that made its Forza debut in Forza Motorsport 6. For example, players will now be scored based on their performance in the class they're running in, with revised end-of-race timers now meaning in theory more players in slower classes will be classified as finishing the race.

Extra features have been brought to Forza Motorsport 7 content update too, ranging from a new panning option when taking pictures in the game's photomode and more frequently-updated in-game Forzathon challenges, to using a UDP data stream to send telemetry information to equipment such as dataloggers and motion rigs.

Much like prior content updates, Forza Motorsport 7's June update introduces an array of further refinements and bug fixes to the title. A full changelog as provided by developer Turn 10 Studios has been added below:

PC
- Fixed an issue where, when player sets Global Quality to “Recommended” and then changes the Car Model setting to “Ultra”, they would not see the Ultra graphics car models.
- Fixed an issue where players would get inconsistent frame rate performance using a 50 Hz monitor.
- Fixed an issue where some Ultra Spec devices were defaulting to 1920 X 1080/Recommended on first launch of the game.
- Fixed an issue where screen would temporarily letterbox when rewinding.

GENERAL
- Fixed an issue where, after changing Drivatar settings in the pits, cars would re-spawn and drive through the player.
- Fixed an issue where Drivatar cars occasionally park on the side of the road during wet races.
- We’ve made a visual adjustment to the Car Collection screen, designed to inform players that there are additional cars in the their collection to scroll through.
- Fixed an issue where players could unlock Tunes after reclaiming their car from the Auction House.

MULTIPLAYER
- Fixed an issue where players in Multiplayer Test Drive can retain control of car in pits.
- Fixed an issue where players with tuned cars were able to get into multiplayer lobbies that have Force Stock Upgrades and Tuning Set to “Yes.”
- Private multiplayer lobbies can now be password protected to prevent unwanted friends/followers from joining without an explicit invite.
- Removed the ‘Force Stock Tuning and Upgrades’ override settings, and introduced three new options to the per-bucket options for greater control: ‘Allow Upgrades’, ‘Allow Tuning’, and “Ownership’.

SPECTATE
- Fixed an issue where, when viewing Race Telemetry while Spectating a race, Best Lap and Top Speed will stay highlighted blue when changing the viewed car to one that doesn’t hold the record. Also fixed a bug where the Best Lap and Top Speed would stay white when changing from a non-record holder back to the record holder car.
- Fixed an issue where players would experience unexpected car behavior when entering the pits while test driving a car in a multiplayer lobby after spectating in that same lobby.
- Fixed an issue where Map Zoom would not zoom in Race Telemetry screens when spectating events on Rio Mini and Rio Mini Reverse.
- Fixed an issue where Map Zoom would not zoom correctly in Race Telemetry screens on Long Beach West.

CARS
- Fixed an issue with the 2017 Maserati Levante S where a hole would appear between the windshield and the hood when driving in wheel-less cockpit camera view.
- Fixed an issue with the 2008 Subaru WRS STi, where all hood options are marked as “stock” and cost 0 credits. With this fix, all aftermarket hoods for this car are labeled and cost 100 credits each.
- Fixed an issue with the 1969 Dodge Charger R/T where, when viewing the engine in Forzavista, you could not back out of the engine view.
- Fixed an issue where the 2016 Bentley Bentayga would unrealistically bounce during the 3, 2, 1 countdown of a race.
- Fixed an issue with the 1980 Porsche Carrera GTS, where after installing a body kit on the car, a tire width change was not visible.
- Fixed an issue where some Driver Stats were not updating when using a rental car.

TRACKS
- Fixed an issue with Lime Rock, where right-side fencing would pop during the 3, 2, 1 countdown of a race.
- Added split time points for Dubai Mountain Circuit.
- Fixed an issue where players could collide with brick on Charles Bridge, causing vehicle to crash.
- Updates to Nürburgring GP and Rio Full Circuit Reverse/National Circuit Reverse/Coast Loop Reverse to fix OOE (out of environment) issues.
