There’s few words better than “free”. Microsoft apparently agrees, and has made its headlining sim racer free to play this weekend for XBox Live Gold members.
The good news comes from Turn 10’s Chris Esaki. Esaki has been a regular on the team’s Forza Monthly live streams, talking about update contents and future plans for the Motorsport side of the franchise. From now through Sunday evening, folks on the fence will get to try out the game’s 700+ cars and 32 tracks themselves.
If you find yourself wanting to play more afterwards, then there’s more good news: the seventh entry in the franchise is available on the Microsoft Store for up to 40% off. The discount applies to all versions of the game as well. So whether you’re looking to pick up the base game, or splurge on the Deluxe or Ultimate edition, you’re walking away with a deal.
The Standard Edition of FM7 is on sale for $29.99, 40% off the current $49.99 price tag. For that price gamers get the base edition as well as the Hoonigan Car Pack.
Moving up, there’s the Deluxe Edition for 30% off ($48.99, originally $69.99). Adding onto the base game, this version also includes the Fate of the Furious Car Pack, and VIP membership. Finally, there’s the Ultimate Edition at 25% off ($67.49, originally $89.99), and it rounds out the package with the Car Pass.
When we reviewed the game last October, we thought highly of it. As the largest entry in the franchise yet, it’s an even better game now then when it released. There’s no shortage of races to win, or cars to collect. Moreover, it will continue to evolve over the coming months as Turn 10 focuses to improve the game further.
Esaki has already gone on record to confirm the team hasn’t even begun developing the eighth game yet. With more features and at least one more car pack on the horizon, there’s no better time to strap in and go for broke.
