Forza Motorsport 7 May Update Brings Free 2018 Civic Type R

A new game update for Forza Motorsport 7 is now available to players worldwide. Announced on the official site, Turn 10 is making May all about Honda, by first treating players to a new free car.

The car in question is the new 2018 Civic Type R. This super hatch is equal parts ludicrous and fast, making it a serious contender in the Modern Hot Hatch category. We’ve gone into further detail on the Type R below.

The Civic is available now for free to all players. Those who own the FM7 Car Pass will have the car automatically downloaded to the in-game garage. Players who don’t own the car pass will have to purchase the car in-game manually, but will be available for no extra charge.

With this much power and pace, the new Civic Type R should prove a serious challenge to the rest of the hot hatch establishment.
