While Gamescom has kicked off, Turn 10 has continued its weekly tradition of car reveals for Forza Motorsport 7. It’s safe to say this week’s is a little different, however.
This being the sixth week, the company pulled the sheet back on… six cars. Yes, that’s quite the change of pace after last week boasted 145 road-going cars. Even stranger, discerning players will recognize this half-dozen as the Horizon Edition models that populate Forza Horizon 3. Renamed “Forza Edition” here, these cars offered special in-game perks in the open-world title. The full lineup is below:
- 2017 Ford GT Forza Edition
- 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Super Sport Forza Edition
- 2013 Ram Runner Forza Edition
- 2012 Nissan GTR Forza Edition
- 1992 Ford Escort RS Forza Edition
- 2014 BMW M4 Forza Edition
Controversially, Turn 10 has confirmed all but the Ford GT as the cars included in the VIP pack. Typically, Forza VIP packs include unique models, while pre-order car packs include T10-modified existing cars. It isn’t completely clear in the announcement, but it sounds as if all Forza players will be able to win these cars over the course of the game.
With a redesigned Career Mode set to be a main feature in FM7, the built-in perks of these vehicles should prove useful. Nonetheless, this is another week with no real new metal on display. To date, the only genuinely new-to-franchise vehicles are the unexpected 1950 Alfa Romeo 158, 2017-spec Porsche 919, and cover star 911 GT2 RS.
There’s one more car reveal week left. With most of the racing cars still missing from our Always Up-To-Date FM7 car list, we expect the final installment to cover the track stars. Hopefully, there are some genuine surprises in store for us next Tuesday — which will be precisely one month before early access for FM7 kicks off on September 29.
