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:
– Fixed an issue where players would get inconsistent frame rate performance using a 50 Hz monitor.
– Fixed an issue where screen would temporarily letterbox when rewinding.
– Fixed an issue where Drivatar cars occasionally park on the side of the road during wet races.
– Fixed an issue where players could unlock Tunes after reclaiming their car from the Auction House.
– 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.”
– 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’.
