The Forza Racing Championship started its second season last month in the open-world arcade racer that is Horizon 3. This week, the competition returns to Turn 10’s sim-oriented Motorsport title, offering players the first challenge that could lead to one lucky person finishing the year off $10,000 USD richer.
After a successful inaugural season, Turn 10 have revealed that the Forza Racing Championship eSports competition is returning for a second season, set to kick off on November 7. With the event being sponsored by Michelin, Logitech G and Playseat, players will ultimately go at it for cash and prizes worth more than $150,000.
If you didn’t tune into the ForzaRC Grand Finals yesterday, you missed out on some incredibly quick (and close) racing. A dozen of the fastest Forza drivers all faced off for the chance to call a 2017 Ford Focus RS their own, and it ended in a nail-biting 1-on-1 showdown.
The first season of Forza’s biggest eSports event is about to come to a close. After three weeks of close competition, a dozen of the world’s fastest Forza drivers will face off to win the grand prize: a 2017 Ford Focus RS. The talented twelve are listed below:
Players looking to get a taste of Forza Motorsport 6 will be able to do just that this weekend. Starting late last night, the 2015 title was made a part of Xbox Live’s Free Play Days initiative, allowing gamers to test drive any of the 460+ cars the game launched with back in September of last year.
The third week of the Forza Racing Championship kicked off earlier this week. Elite competitors are placed behind the wheel of the 2016 Ford #66 Ford Racing GT Le Mans, and are expected to navigate the many twists and turns of Watkins Glen. Those participating in the Open Series will have to endure a variety of tracks in the Leagues events, piloting the same racing version of Ford’s latest supercar.
The first week of the Forza Racing Championship wrapped up last Sunday. Players that participated in either the Elite or Open divisions were gifted prize cars, regardless of placement: the 1973 Ford Escort RS1600 and 1971 Ford Falcon XY GTHO Phase III, respectively.
Heading into the weekend, it was Laige’s race to lose in terms of the Forza Racing Championship according to many in the community. The French driver has 7 national championships to his name in the Forza world already, after all. Saturday’s 128-driver knockout events saw Laige progress to the final race of Week 1 on Sunday, alongside the other 15 drivers that qualified:
For those steeped in the world of competitive multiplayer racing there’s no escaping ill-mannered racers, souring an otherwise fruitful experience with practices of bad sportsmanship. In response to this Turn 10 have kicked off a new program, Forza Race Marshals. The intention of the program will be helping to keep multiplayer events in Forza Motorsport 6 “as clean as possible.”
The Forza Racing Championship kicked off earlier this week with the 2015 Mustang GT as the first featured car. In the Elite Series, players were challenged to take their pony car around the turns of Monza in a dedicated Rivals event.
After announcing the details of Season 1 last week, Turn 10 launches the Forza Racing Championship today. This week focuses on the 2015 Mustang GT, with Elite Series players heading to Monza in search of the fastest single lap time, while Open Series drivers will take to a variety of tracks in the Leagues event.
After weeks of teasing, Turn 10 has unveiled its bid for the burgeoning eSports segment. Dubbed the Forza Racing Championship, the ESL-hosted event will be open to all Forza Motorsport 6 players, with numerous prizes up for grabs. At the top of the pile is a brand new 2017 Focus RS, provided by the first season’s title sponsor.
We’re keeping with the Porsche theme of today’s news, but switching over to a different title. The Porsche expansion in FM6 brought a handful of new models to the Forza franchise, one of which was the 718 RS 60 Spyder.
There’s been a curious trend of vehicles showing up in Forza Motorsport 6 without notice. First was the 1966 Nissan Silvia last December, which players were able to purchase through an unusual method. Access to the car was removed in the next update, but that hasn’t stopped other cars from being discovered. The most recent car pack – titled “Turn 10 Select” – has brought with it another new ride: the Ford XY Falcon GTHO Phase III.
Turn 10 has just revealed the latest car pack for its 2015 sim racing title, and it’s easily one of the strangest the game has seen. As you can see in the video above, the full gamut is on display, with a new “entry-level” supercar taking pride of place in front of a collection of racing vehicles and two older road-going models. One of these – the BMW Isetta – is one of the smallest cars found in the game, while the youngest racer in the pack introduces European Racing Trucks to Forza. The full break down:
With Forza Horizon 3 in the spotlight after E3, you’d be forgiven for thinking Turn 10 has wrapped up support for their most recent title. Enjoying a new car pack each month since October – as well as two expansion packs focusing on Porsche and NASCAR – June saw a break from the typical release schedule, with only the new Ford GT LM showing up (for free). We’ve now had confirmation from the team that more cars will be added to the game’s 600-and-counting lineup, a week from tomorrow.
