Forza Motorsport Update 10: Proximity Radar, Forza GT Splits, Nemesis Tour, and More

Turn 10’s latest “Nemesis” update for Forza Motorsport has officially been revealed and is set to roll out for Xbox and PC players this evening.

What was originally planned to be a two-phase update, for reasons unknown, has been pushed through as a single update as Turn 10 was able to correct the issues that would have otherwise affected it.

As yet we’ve not seen the file size on Xbox consoles, but the Steam version weighs in at a solid 8.2GB. There’s plenty to get through then, so let’s take a look at it all!

Forza Motorsport Update 10: General Game Updates

Following the pattern of previous even-numbered updates, Update 10 does not feature a new or returning circuit but brings forward more features and changes.

One of the most requested features to be added is the Car Proximity Radar. This new HUD element will allow players to see if cars come into their blind spots to help keep racing clean in multiplayer. Players will also have the option to pick where they want the radar to be shown on their screen.

Replays get an overhaul with the addition of an updated user interface, a new vertical driver list, a new track map, and new HUD visibility options. There are further upgrades planned which include new camera types.

One criticism made of Forza Motorsport to date has been a lack of aero customization options. T10 has begun to address this by adding the aero wing from Big Country Labs to a selection of 18 cars. These new wings can be added immediately as they are unlocked at Car Level 1.

A major change to multiplayer series is that Forza GT sees the class split into GT2 and GT3 series. T10 has also confirmed a separate GT4 class will be implemented in Update 11. This change only affects groupings in multiplayer and all Forza GT cars will continue to be under the same class in single player.

Forza Motorsport Update 10: New Cars

In keeping with the update theme of rivalries, several pairs and one triple serving of Spotlight cars will be made available over the next few weeks and can be purchased for a 30% discount with in-game credits. They will also be a core part of the new featured tour that we will be covering later. Players with VIP can also receive a 15% discount on a select number of cars throughout the latest update.

The only significant Spotlight Car addition in Update 10 comes in the form of the 1995 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution III finally making its debut in the Forza series.

As its name suggests, the third-generation Evo builds on the success of the previous generations while enhancing its rallying pedigree. Using a tweaked version of the CE9A platform from the Evo II, the Evo III comes with more aggressive styling to improve cooling and reduce lift. The hallmark 2.0-liter turbocharged engine gains a boost in power to make 270hp.

Forza Motorsport Update 10: New Events

The Nemesis Tour for this month takes you through some of the most famous (or infamous) rivalries that shaped the racing and automotive landscape, with the Spotlight cars as the main contenders.

Nemesis Tour

  • Rally Rivals – Mitsubishi Lancer Evo III, Subaru Impreza WRX STI 2005
  • Grand Prix Grudge – Ferrari 312 T2, McLaren M23
  • Hybrid Holy Trinity – McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari LaFerrari
  • Endurance Legends – Ford GT40 Mk II, Ferrari 330 P4

For each four race series, you’ll need to pick a side for each of these head to head matches, ranging from rally homologations to Le Mans legends.

Finish all the races in this tour and your reward will be the 1998 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR AMG for use in the final reward showcase.

The Nemesis Tour is set to start on July 10 with Rally Rivals, with the following series set to be unlocked after seven days each. You’ll have until August 28 to complete the tour so there won’t be a need to rush.

Open Class Tour

The Open Tour undergoes another major change, with the number of races in each series being cut from four down to three. There are also a wider range of classes to run in from D Class up to R Class.

Complete this tour and you’ll receive a 2008 Lamborghini Reventon as your prize to drive in the final showcase. This tour runs until August 14, so you’ll need to keep a closer eye on your schedule for this one.

Forza Motorsport Update 10: Multiplayer Events

Featured Multiplayer gets even busier with rival-based Spec Series alongside weekly rotations of the new Forza GT2 and GT3 classes. The Spotlight cars will also get their own multiplayer events in the Spotlight series , which will each be available for seven day periods.

Gillette is also running a special event as part of its P1 program. You’ll be driving a 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS in order to set your fastest time around Grand Oak Raceway.

Mobil 1’s Pro Driver event puts you into a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302 around Maple Valley, with the task of attempting to beat former NASCAR champion Tony Stewart. The target to aim for is a 1:57.453.

Forza Motorsport Update 10: Other Changes

Along with updates to car class groupings and replays, there are more changes and improvements in several areas.

Catalunya and Hockenheim receive fixes in regards to object pop-ins, collisions, and graphical issues.

More changes to PC optimisation come in the form of increased accuracy in the VRAM estimator. Players with GPUs with low VRAM are set to benefit from these changes to improve performance. You can also now disable TAA in the graphics settings if you prefer to use your own levels of anti-aliasing.

Some major updates includes fixing gear shift times that would vary based on PC framerate, and fixing a bug allowing players with poor PC performance to gain advantages over other players.

Drivatar AI gets tweaked further to improve pit lane merging on entry and exit, as well as reducing times cars would go off track when alongside players.

Various causes for game crashes have also been addressed in Multiplayer and in the Livery Editor.

Update 10 will run over the next five weeks, with T10 confirming that the next new track will appear in Update 11 sometime in mid-August.
