The latest update for Forza Motorsport 7 potentially ushers in a big shake-up for the game’s online multiplayer modes, thanks to the initial roll-out of the ‘Forza Race Regulations’ system.
Limited initially to an invite-only beta test hopper lobby, the ‘Forza Race Regulations’ are a new penalty system that, once complete, are intended to make online racing in Forza Motorsport 7 a more structured and professional-feeling experience. In the initial beta test, the new regulations consist of corner cutting and extension penalties, which are intended to negate the need for deliberately-placed barriers.
Though the regulations roll-out is limited to select players in March 2019, other changes brought to Forza Motorsport 7 this month will be available to all players. Tweaks made to the game include new collision physics, and a new optional ‘Drift Cockpit Camera’ POV that automatically ‘looks’ in the direction the car is travelling in while the player is drifting.
Wheel users are set to benefit from the latest Forza Motorsport 7 update, too. As well as introducing a new wheel telemetry display and revised force feedback dampening, the content update now lets players set the force feedback level and steering lock for every car in their garage.
Rounding off the update are three new Ford Mustang variants. One is a tuned RTR version of the current Ford Mustang GT coupe, with the remaining two being the Formula Drift cars that are driven by Vaughn Gittin Jnr and Chelsea DeNofa.
