    A few little bits of new informations from different interviews with Bill, Dan etc.
    • Career mode, called "Forza Driver's Cup", has been built around six major championships, where you will be able to drive the cars you prefer: from NASCAR to racing trucks, from hypercars to pre-war GP racers and everything in between. Players will have access to race length tools that will allow them to increase the # of laps, just in case they don't like sprint races.
    • New "Adjudication System" for online racing, set to penalize players who cut corners, crash into other racers, or do something else that's not considered sportsmanship.
    • More focus on eSports, with Mixer integration, more spectator's mode options & views and more power to lobbies' marshals. Basically, the CU we've seen in Forza 6 were the basis upon which Forza 7 has been built and refined.
    • Forza 7 will feature the auction house from FH3 and more motorsport-focused bodykits and wheels, besides the Rocket Bunny and Liberty Walk stuff, as previously mentioned and shown.
    • Volkswagen is back.
    Last but not least, Digital Foundry shared a couple of interesting tweets, in regards to the game's looks:
    • "Lots of washed out Forza 7 Xbox One X footage online now: this is HDR video capture treated as an SDR source, not what the game looks like."
    • Ran the HDR Forza 7 capture through John Hable's Uncharted 2 tone-mapping filter. Gives a decent approximation of how the game really looks:[​IMG]
    Something to keep in mind while watching gameplay footage on YouTube.

    I have every forza game since fm2, from fm5 I've Owned a wheel. Forza game wise always ticks all the boxes, except one, wheel handling/braking. After what the fanatec ceo said, I'm hoping it's a lot better than the last 2 instalments.
  10. It seems that forza learned a few things from project cars. The game looks awsome!
