As part of improving Forza Motorsport 7, developer Turn 10 Studios has rolled out November update. The update not only brings new collision model but, it also removed the loot boxes aka Prize Crates from Forza Motorsport 7.
According to the devs, they have replaced the loot boxes with Race Shop feature in Forza Motorsport 7. The race shop will provide players with “Driver Gear, Mod cards, and more”.
Everything in the Race Shop is purchasable with in-game credits. Obviously, the price of the item will depend upon the rarity and type.
First up, prize crates have been officially removed from Forza Motorsport 7; in their place, we’ve added a new Race Shop feature, where players can grab items like Driver Gear, Mod cards, and more.
The removal of Forza Motorsport 7 Loot Boxes comes following Turn 10 confirming that there won’t be a Forza Motorsport 8 in 2019. According to the studio, it will be using the time to improve Forza Motorsport 7 and it is quite evident with the November update.
The November update brings a completely revamped collision model. We won’t go into details but, here are some highlights from the new Forza Motorsport 7 collision model.
This new system brings “improved energy dissipation between bodies” along with the calculation of tire friction during collisions.
Aside from improvements, the November update also brought Hot Wheels Cars. The update brings 7 new Hot Wheels models as part of the Hot Wheels’ 50th-anniversary celebration.
These Hot Wheels cars include 970 Hot Wheels Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1, 969 Hot Wheels Chevrolet Camaro Super Sport Coupe and 1963 Hot Wheels Volkswagen Beetle.
Aside from the Forza Motorsport, there is Forza spin-off series called “Horizon” which blends the arcade and simulation perfectly. Forza Horizon 4 is the latest entry in the franchise and also the fastest selling one.
We’re thrilled that Forza Horizon 4 has been so well received by gamers across the UK. Set in beautiful, historic Britain and made by British studio Playground Games, Forza Horizon 4 is the fastest-ever selling game of the Forza Horizon series in the UK according to the latest GfK data.
Not only that, Horizon 4 might the best-optimized game for PC. According to benchmarks, Forza Horizon 4 runs at 1440p/60 FPS on GTX 1060 and the RX 580.
The game running at 60 FPS on a 1440p resolution is surprising since GTX 1060 is a 1080p gaming GPU. Not only that, both GTX 1060 and Radeon RX 580 managed to get 40 FPS at 4K resolution.
Also, Playground Games has introduced Route Creator to Forza Horizon 4. The route creator allows players to create their custom route.
Players can custom routes which can be 40 miles long and the terrain will be the player’s choice. All players have to do is draw the custom route and place checkpoints.
Forza Motorsport 7 is a racing simulator developed by Turn 10 studios. The game is available for PC and Xbox One.
