Wheel users should be able to have a “more intuitive” driving experience in Forza Motorsport 7, courtesy of the game’s overhauled force feedback system.
Added in this month’s content update, the new setup is claimed to be a a “full physically based system” that allows players to have a “solid feeling of connection to the road”.
Developer Turn 10 Studios says the revised force feedback system uses data from the game’s suspension and tyre simulation models , which now allows aspects such as tyre load be transmitted to the player.
As the force feedback completely replaces the old system, wheel users will have tuning value settings reset to their default settings upon installing the update. Once the game is updated, players can adjust the values to their preference.
The new force feedback system is one part of a comprehensive content update for Forza Motorsport 7. Menu and HUD icons have been given a cosmetic overhaul, and transition times for “certain menu items” have also been improved.
Following on from earlier months, the December content update also adds a ‘Spotlight’ car to Forza Motorsport 7, in the form of the BMW GTE endurance racing car (pictured).
A ‘Forza Edition’ version of the 1991 BMW M3 has also been added to the game as a prize for a themed Rivals event. The TVR Cerbera Speed 12 has been introduced to Forza Motorsport 7 too, though it’s unknown at time of writing how or when players will be able to acquire it.
