Forza Motorsport 7 New Update & Patch Notes Dropped

Forza Motorsport 7 launched yesterday, on October 3rd, for the Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. So far, the new installment in the franchise, developed by Turn 10 Studios and published by Microsoft has been getting pretty good reviews, as you can see on Metacritic. That being said, the user score is very, very different. This is, of course, because of the truly horrifying microtransaction economy. Turns out, gamers aren’t too happy when you take out things they like out of their games and put them behind paywalls. Who would’ve thought, huh? Especially because the game forces you to spend its monopoly money on mods that actually influence the race, thereby helping you earn more virtual currency, so you can buy more mods, so that you can… You get the picture. For Pete’s sake, Microsoft.

Anyway, there’s a new patch out for Forza Motorsport already, fixing several different issues that the game has been experiencing. You can check out the full patch notes below, as they appear on the official forum.

  • Fixed numerous livery-related issues, including some liveries applying as paint colors only, liveries not appearing in multiplayer, and game lock-ups when cancelling liveries.
  • Fixed an issue where vinyls would not appear in the vinyl editor for players who were creating vinyl groups with HDR enabled.
  • Arabic text is no longer reversed in game menus
  • Default profile slider settings for wheel users are no longer maxed out
  • Benchmark mode on PC now displays the correct minimum FPS
  • Framerate now improved in loading with G-Sync enabled.
