Forza Motorsport 7 is nearly ready for release. Developer Turn 10 announced today the game has gone gold, meaning physical copies are ready to begin being manufactured. Alongside this news, Turn 10 released a new commercial and details regarding a demo.
The demo will be available on both PC and Xbox One on September 19, and will showcase three different racing experiences within the game. You’ll get to drive the Forza 7 cover car, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, on Dubai’s Jebel Hafeet Pass, a winding mountain highway that’s one of the world’s most famous driving roads. You can also head to the high-speed Mugello circuit in Italy and drive the Mercedes Benz Tankpool racing truck.
Forza Motorsport 7 officially launches on October 3, but anyone who’s preordered the Ultimate Edition will get early access on September 29. PC players can get a look at Forza 7’s minimum and recommended system requirements here, and if you plan on playing on a console you should check out this look at gameplay on an Xbox One X.
The demo will launch on both Xbox One and PC, meaning players from each platform can try FM7 before release. If you’re still on the fence about picking up the game, be sure to give the demo a download and check out the game for yourself. You’ll have a few weeks: FM7 launches in full on October 3 (or September 29 for the Ultimate Edition).
Take on Three Unique Challenges in The Forza Motorsport 7 Demo
The trial version of the game appears similar to the E3 build that expo-goers got to experience in June (including us). A selection of three different car/track combos will be available, showing off the breadth of content in FM7. The events are listed below and each gives a chance to experience a different side to the game:
- The Porsche 911 GT2 RS at Dubai. Drive the title’s cover star on one of the new tracks shown off at E3.
- The Mercedes-Benz Tankpool Racing Truck at Mugello Circuit. Take on the classic Italian racing track in the heaviest vehicles in the game.
- The Nissan NISMO GT-R LM at Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit. Two fan favorites and dynamic weather combine for what Turn 10 call the “ultimate test” available in the demo.
Players can also tweak driving aids as required, so even if you’re new to the Motorsport franchise you can find a setup that’s right for you. Those on PC will also be able to make use of “Benchmark Mode”. This will help those on the platform to find the exact settings that their hardware is capable of.
