    If Mugello was included in the trailer than likely Dubai, Pacific and Mugello are the 3 new tracks.

    Yes we finally can change our race gear! That was a feature I wanted to see in Forza ever since GT started doing it. Hopefully the gear selection is not extremely limited though.

    Maple Valley confirmed.

    700 cars that they "retouched up" including the instrument panels.

    "Dark skies open up and change as the sun emerges from the clouds"

    Surely that means Dynamic Time of Day to some extent

    Still no Pacific Raceway than? Unless they removed another track... maybe the test track?

    On the youtube livestream Turn 10 creative director Bill Giese said "over 30 tracks"

    So I dont know what to believe now.

    I wouldn't mind if they got rid of Bernese Alps and Prague. Oh, and Rio too.

    Camino needs to return. I've never understood how a track, especially one created in-house could ever get the axe. Isn't that just wasting resources?

    Real-world tracks I understand because of licensing fees and what have you, but fictional tracks? I don't get it.

    Never was a big fan of Camino, tbh. In fact, aside from Maple Valley, all the fictional tracks from the Forza series have been mostly terrible, to me it's really the weak point of the series.

    I guess they go by popularity to eliminate them... which is why stuff like Positano and Sedona got axed fairly early on.

    The only T10 fantasy tracks I've ever really enjoyed are the ones in FM1 and since apart from Maple Valley they were just imitations of real tracks currently in the game I can see why they have been left behind.

    I quite liked Sunset Peninsula, but I guess at the time, it was merely a placeholder until they could get something like Indy & Daytona to substitute it.

    So hypothetically, if I buy FM7 digitally for my xb1, and a month or so later I decide to get an Xbox one X, will I have to buy a digital Xbox one X version of the game too? Or will I be able to just re download and use the one I purchased for the Xb1?

    Pretty sure it's the latter?

    It's the same "game" across all 3 platforms. IIRC you can buy FH3 on PC and play it on both XB1 and PC.

    No, buy any game on Xbox One, it'll be yours on Xbox One X

    Doesn't look like dynamic time change in the trailer or gameplay footage. Dan's quote only indicates weather change, from stormy to sunny. Lighting and shadows can still be baked whilst having dynamic weather change, similar to PGR4.

    I'm surprised they don't want the release of FM7 to coincide with the launch of Xbox One X. The Xbox One version must be pretty good if they are confident enough to make it the platform on which console reviews and first impressions will be formed.

    Could be - and unless the 50 laps race lenght limit is going, it'd make sense to.

    The question then is: how much can the TOD be adjusted? Can we haz night racing with rain? (Probably not but heh, I'm not exactly thrilled at the idea of racing at night in heavy rain anyways)

    XONE-to-XOX you'd be good to go even with a physical copy - on the XOX the game will run at 4K with HDR and all eventual graphics pizzas automatically if it's a game that comes with an "Xbox One X Enhanced" sticker. Xbox-to-PC (and viceversa) requires you to use the "Play Anywhere" functionality, which only comes with digital versions.

    FM7 in digital delivery form will allow you to play from the get-go on all Xbox One consoles, and on Win10 - provided you have a computer that's powerful enough, that is.

    So...with the sizzle trailer and the constant stream of info from PCARS 2 and this drop in the bucket from FM7, it's time to see what GT Sport can do this E3, and over the next few months.

    Out of curiosity didn't anyone else notice the driver swap in the trailer?

    I did! I also noticed the mechanics running all around the car, but... I'm trying to get not too excited.

    What could it mean? Hotseat mode? Endurance racing with driver swaps? Perhaps it could be something confined to the single player modes, where you share your seat with your friends Drivatars and only drive some stints as part of a longer race? Just graphical pizzas for the trailer? It seems clear that FM7 may be a more polished and esport-oriented product compared to FM6, but it remains to be seen how much.

    I know of many groups which would greatly benefit if they somehow found a way to have 72 guys swapping 24 seats during online races - i.e. virtually any sim racing league that runs races over 2 hours of lenght.

    I wonder if that entails starting over though if all your info is saved on the Xbox One? And, if you'll be able to re-download any VIP/DLC content you already had before hand as well.
