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.

Yes, we have been saving the best for last. Here, in the final week of the Forza Motorsport 7 Garage, we bring you cars that span more than 50 years of racing history, all of which you’ll be able to explore, customize and drive in Forza Motorsport 7. From the early days of racing history to modern high-tech marvels, this lineup is drawn from nearly every major racing series in the world.

The world of racing has a history all its own. There are stories of success and triumph and endless innovation. Consider the evolution of aerodynamics in the first cars to experiment with downforce, or the search for power as turbo-charged vehicles entered the field. Forza Motorsport 7 will feature classic racers like the 1966 Ford #2 GT40 Mk II Le Mans and the 1991 Mazda #18 Mazdaspeed 787B, among many others legendary race cars. As the 2017 racing season is still underway, you will be able to experience the latest technology and designs from Formula One, IndyCar, NASCAR, Aussie V8 Supercars and Formula E. These are the cars that are racing right now in their respective series, and you’ll get to race them firsthand in Forza Motorsport 7.

This week, we’re also thrilled to share an exciting infographic that encapsulates the diversity and breadth of Forza Motorsport 7’s massive 700+ car lineup.

Now let’s take a look at the cars of the final week of the Forza Motorsport 7 Garage.

2017 Holden #22 Walkinshaw Performance VF Commodore
Holden_22_VF_Commodore_WM_FM7_CarReveal_Week07_4K1.jpg
The V8 Supercars Championship in Australia is the premier road racing series Down Under. At this event, no matter where the success has swayed, Holden holds a faithful following of race fans. The #22 is driven by veteran James Courtney and primarily sponsored by Mobil 1. The 2017 season has been a tough one for the Walkinshaw team, but no one is more loyal to his calling than Courtney, who has driven with optimism and an...

Here we are at the penultimate week six of car announcements coming to Forza Motorsport 7 and we’re shining the spotlight on a truly unique batch of cars. The Forza world fell in love with the custom built special models that debuted in Forza Horizon 3 and we’re pleased to say that Forza Edition cars, as they’re now known, will be a part of the fun in Forza Motorsport 7! These cars feature unique styles designed to catch the eye, but also custom tuning and special bonuses that will make them must-own additions to every Forza player’s garage.

In Forza Motorsport 7, Forza Edition cars will be immediately recognizable on the track. Whether they’re sporting custom widebody kits and wheels or gorgeous liveries, Forza Edition cars will always stand out from the crowd. Beyond the aesthetics you can only find in a Forza Edition car, you will get a ride that has been fine-tuned by the experts here at Turn 10, who have considered every factor from power-to-weight ratio, to the specific suspension settings that will make a Forza Edition car a top choice for all types of four-wheeled-fun, including special built-to-drift models.

Not only do these cars look great and drive well, but Forza Edition vehicles also offer advantages to progress your career and increase your credit balance. Each Forza Edition vehicle has built-in multipliers that will enhance your credit reward for racing and winning with it, as well as increase the XP gained while you are behind the wheel. These are tools of your racing trade that will deliver a big payoff, race after race.

So how do you get your hands on these amazing Forza Edition cars? In addition to being available as rewards in game, via the Forza Drivers Cup single player campaign or in #Forzathon events, you’ll also be able to find them on the Auction House, which is returning for Forza Motorsport 7.

For those who want to get a great head start on their Forza Edition collection right away, check out our VIP membership, which is...

Today, during Xbox @ gamescom Live, we talked to fans about our commitment to bring all PC players a world-class racing experience with Forza Motorsport 7 for Windows 10 PCs. We unveiled the game’s PC specifications with an approachable wide range of hardware configurations and a massive list of more than 30 supported peripherals. We also announced that for the first time ever, fans will be able to play the Forza Motorsport 7 demo on Windows 10 PCs prior to the game’s release.

At Turn 10 Studios, PC gamers are a top priority, and as such, we have invested significant time to ensure Forza Motorsport 7 offers the best possible experience on Windows 10 PCs and is accessible to millions of more players. Together with our state-of-the art ForzaTech engine, both Forza Motorsport 6: Apex and Forza Horizon 3 helped us quickly learn what’s needed to create a successful PC racing game – such as support for a wide range of PC setups and racing wheels. Since Forza Horizon 3 launched in September 2016, we’ve continued to make improvements to the PC version of the game, with updates to the Windows 10 PC demo, that we’re also applying to Forza Motorsport 7.

Forza7_Gamescom_PressKit_DriverCloseUp_4K1.jpg Forza7_Gamescom_PressKit_ReadyToRace_4K1.jpg

As a result, we’ve built Forza Motorsport 7 from the ground up to be the ultimate PC racing game, with native 4K resolution and unlocked framerate on high-end Windows 10 PCs, Xbox Play Anywhere and cross-play functionality, as well as support for multiple monitors, 21:9 displays and numerous peripherals. Plus, with more than 700 cars and 30 tracks, dynamic skies and weather, and an all-new campaign inspired by real-world racing, we’re excited to see PC gamers live their motorsport fantasies this holiday and join our community of more than five million monthly active players.

Earlier this week, the folks at ComputerBild published a feature on tracks in Forza Motorsport 7. Featuring a discussion with Turn 10 Studios creative director Dan Greenawalt, the article pointed out the many cutting-edge systems that Turn 10 uses to bring the tracks to life with new weather scenarios and alternate times of day that literally cast the tracks of Forza Motorsport 7 in a brand-new light. If you haven’t already done so, check out the article now.

Suzuka Circuit, Completely Rebuilt
FM7_TrackReveal_SuzukaCircuit_4K1.jpg
It’s one thing to read about the changes coming to tracks in Forza Motorsport 7 but it’s a very different thing to see them for yourself. Suzuka is a prime example; like all of the real-world tracks in Forza Motorsport 7, Suzuka is officially licensed and completely rebuilt with High Res assets designed to look fantastic at native 4K and on the entire family of Xbox consoles. Not only is the track completely rebuilt and updated, Suzuka also features wet weather conditions for the first time in Forza history. Imagine tackling the “S Curves” at full speed, or barreling around the harrowing 130R, only this time battling the dynamic puddles that line the edges of the circuit, and the blinding spray of the cars in front of you. The same challenge that real-world drivers face at Suzuka lap-after-lap, will now be your challenge as well.

Returning Fan-Favorite, Maple Valley
FM7_TrackReveal_MapleValleySpeedway_4K1.jpg
I might be wrong, but I could swear I heard an audible gasp of excitement on the Interwebz back at E3 when we confirmed that Maple Valley would be returning with Forza Motorsport 7. Is there a more lauded, more beloved track in the Forza universe? Whether you’re looking to test your sideways skills on one of Forza’s best drifting tracks, or you want to push the edges of speed on its sweeping corners, Maple Valley is a masterpiece in every respect. Like Suzuka,...
