Starting today, players can dive into our first season of online multiplayer Leagues events, test their skills against players all over the world, and win awesome in-game prizes just for taking part.

Forza Motorsport 7 Leagues are organized by seasons, each made up of week-long series which include numerous events. Players in Leagues are grouped by skill bands and each band features five ranks. League players earn points after each race, and players can move up or down in ranks and bands as a League Season progresses.

With Samsung QLED being Turn 10's favorite way to play in 4K on Xbox One X, today they've unveiled the latest car pack for FM7 -- the Samsung QLED Car Pack, arriving on Tuesday, November 7th. In true Forza fashion, this pack features an incredible variety of vehicles – from the latest Alfa Romeo to Nissan’s famous Bluebird Super Silhouette race car, as well a couple of rough-and-ready off-roaders that are built for intimidation on the race track, and a whale-tailed Porsche racer that’s best known by its nickname “Moby Dick.”



The Samsung QLED TV Car Pack is included as part of the Forza Motorsport 7 Car Pass, which is available for separate purchase or as part of the Forza Motorsport 7 Ultimate Edition. For all others the pack costs $7.99.

Here’s a closer look at the vehicles in the pack:

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio
AlfaRomeoGiulia.jpg
It’s been 21 years since Alfa Romeo sold cars in the United States, and one drive of the new Giulia might infer they spent the entire time making sure their next entry was perfect. The Giulia Quadrifoglio is all Alfa Romeo, with exotic lines, delicate styling touches, and the performance you expect from an Italian sport sedan. In Quadrifoglio dress the biggest treat is the 505 horsepower Ferrari-derived 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6. Not only is it four-letter fast, but the sonorous rumble it emits is stunning from idle to redline. The front bumper on Quadrifoglio models is aggressive looking and, in the rear, you will find the gigantic rear diffuser and a gorgeously protruding exhaust. It’s been a long time to wait for the new Giulia, but by any measure it was worth it.

1984 Nissan #20 Coca-Cola Bluebird Super Silhouette
NissanBluebirdSuperSilouette.jpg
If the Nissan Bluebird’s iconic angular aero kit and amazing wide body don’t immediately impress you, then the raw gut-wrenching power of its 562 horsepower LZ20B engine will. This was of course the 1980s and the silhouette-bodied...

“The Xbox One X is the world’s most powerful console,” said Henry Ford III, Ford Performance Marketing Manager. “It’s the benchmark in the console gaming world, while F-150 Raptor is its equivalent in the world of pickup trucks.”

“We have long enjoyed and valued our partnership with Ford Performance and feel privileged to work with them on the incredible F-150 Raptor, an iconic American legend,” said Mike Humphreys, Senior Director, Business and Partnerships for Forza Franchise, Turn 10 Studios. “The Ford Raptor is built on top of another iconic legend, the Ford F-150 pickup, resulting in technical excellence and off-road innovations that make it a Forza fan favorite.”

The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Xbox One X Edition boasts unique graphics, paint, and upholstery inspired by the console’s internal code name, “Project Scorpio,” as well as the Raptor’s desert racing heritage. Custom wheels, bumpers, chase rack and LED lighting in Xbox’s signature green complete the look. Performance-enhancing modifications include a Fabtech six-inch lift kit, upgraded Alcon brakes, Addictive Desert Designs intercooler and Ford Performance Borla exhaust.

The partnership between Ford Performance and Xbox showcases storied brands with deep roots in performance.

“With the recent launch of the Formula 1 Esport Series and the growing popularity of this new discipline in the Paddock, the opportunity to increase our footprint in gaming and partner with Xbox on a custom console was an exciting challenge for us, especially knowing it would be released before the highly-anticipated Formula 1 United States Grand Prix,” said Cyril Abiteboul, Managing Director of Renault Formula One Team. “We have included design technologies that push the boundaries of manufacturing and we are proud of the result we have achieved.

The International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) today announced a strategic alliance with the award-winning, world-renowned Forza franchise developed by Turn 10 Studios and published by Microsoft Studios.

This alliance includes a multi-faceted platform of activation highlighting IMSA cars, tracks and partners already aligned with the franchise which is home to the largest online racing community in gaming.

“We’re proud to celebrate the launch of Forza Motorsport 7 by announcing the alliance with IMSA, a long-standing partner of our franchise,” Turn10 Senior Business Director Mike Humphreys said. “At Turn 10 Studios we are driven by car passion, technical innovation and the thrill of competition; all pursuits that we share with IMSA.

Forza fans, prepare for an action-packed start to the launch of Forza Motorsport 7 with the upcoming launch of the The Fate of the Furious™ Car Pack, created in collaboration with Universal Brand Development. Available for players who have purchased the Deluxe or Ultimate Editions of Forza Motorsport 7, The Fate of the Furious Car Pack features ten hero cars from the nitro-fueled blockbuster action franchise.



The Fate of the Furious Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 7 is only available for players who own the Deluxe and Ultimate Editions digital bundles of Forza Motorsport 7, and will be available for standalone purchase at $9.99.

Now let’s take a closer look at the cars included:

1966 Chevrolet Corvette The Fate of the Furious Edition
ChevroletCorvette_FM7_FateofFuriousCarPack1.jpg
This C2 Stingray was built to emulate the autocross and chase down cones with the best from the modern era. Underneath the period-correct fender flares you will find a lot of rubber and an independent rear suspension that delivers tons of grip. Given its lightened and strengthened chassis, the 400 horsepower transferred through a Muncie four-speed should provide the perfect package for straightening out any set of curves you may encounter.

1968 Dodge Charger The Fate of the Furious Edition
DodgeCharger_FM7_FateofFuriousCarPack1.jpg
This fully modified ice racing version of Dominic Toretto’s favorite car has little left of your typical Charger. In fact, only the roof and pillars are stock. This chunk of American muscle has been widened to accommodate its 18-inch tires that fight for traction with the help of a custom all-wheel-drive system and ridiculous steering angle that would make even a drifter drop their jaw. Under the hood is a Chevrolet LS motor with more than enough juice to keep it sideways. Naturally the entire car has been reinforced and fortified for battle. Even though you might not need to dodge bullets in Forza, this Charger’s look will surely...

With the launch of the demo and previews of FM7 from the worlwide gaming media starting this coming Tuesday it's about time you get a scope on what to expect from now till launch and a lookout into the future. Below you will also find the full FM7 Achievements List.

So without further ado here is Turn 10's Community Manager Brian Ekberg giving us a Pre-Launch Update:

It’s T-minus two weeks until the early access launch of Forza Motorsport 7. There’s a palpable sense of excitement around the halls of Turn 10 as we prepare to bring our biggest and best Forza game yet to the world. From the very start, the team has worked towards a vision of re-imagining the racing experience and, starting with early access on September 29, the community will be lighting out again on another fantastic Forza adventure.

Ever since we announced Forza 7, we’ve called this our biggest game, and the numbers bear it out: more than 700 cars at launch, 32 of the world’s greatest tracks (our largest lineup ever), a massive career in the Forza Driver’s Cup, and of course a huge list of ever-changing multiplayer and competitive modes that will keep players busy no matter their skill level or driving preferences. This is the largest game we’ve ever released in terms of sheer footprint size as well. The Xbox One game will be approximately 95 GB at launch. Just about 45 GB of that contained on the Blu-ray disc. The remainder will be available to download for free on September 29.

Naturally, the game can be played from the disc alone. However, if you want to experience the true depth and breadth of content in Forza Motorsport 7, you’ll want to take the additional update. A great example is the Forza Driver’s Cup single-player campaign. While all players can complete the first play-through of the Forza Driver’s Cup on disc, beating the series unlocks a wealth of new Forza Driver’s Cup content, including new competitive and Showcase events, as well as new trophies and Driver Gear rewards.
