3. This Entry Introduces Dynamic Weather and Customizable Drivers

One of the newest features being added to Forza 7 is a mechanic that’s been a part of the spinoff Horizon titles – dynamic weather. Several of the game’s tracks can be raced upon in day/night conditions and even while it’s raining. While conducting a race within any of the game’s many locales, numerous weather dynamics will activate and impact your overall performance. For example, rain might spring up and make the road a lot slipper than usual while you’re competing on the Suzuka Circuit. Besides that latest addition, Forza 7 will finally give players the chance to customize their driver avatars.

4. The New Campaign Mode Has Been Dubbed the “Forza Driver’s Cup”

Forza 7’s focused career mode has been christened the “Forza Driver’s Cup.” This main campaign will allow players to race in all types of car classes and compete for the top spot in six major championships. The game’s official website delivered a summary of what you can expect to encounter in this new in-game racing challenge:

The Forza Driver’s Cup will also feature a motorsport-inspired scoring system which will let you rack up points per race and allow you to unlock new car and brand-new Driver Gear (more on that in a bit). We’re also bringing back Showcase Events, where some of the most exclusive reward cars will live. In fact, we’ve re-thought how we reward players. Car collecting is a key element to the Forza Motorsport series and, with Forza 7, we’re blowing that out in a big way. In essence, the more cars you collect, the greater your post-race rewards will be. You’ll have an in-game tier level in game that will progress as your collection grows and the higher your tier, the better the rewards you’ll earn.
