Forza 7 Patch Adds New Packs and Big PC Fixes



/ 4 months ago

Forza 7 Update

For racing fans, Forza has been one of the standout series in recent years. Yes, I can already see you Project Cars fans frothing at the mouth, maybe even fans of Gran Turismo and while your games are pretty good, they don’t release anywhere near as regular as you would probably like.

I’m certainly no advocate of Forza, particularly their recent microtransaction riddled, titles. That does, however, outright stop them being great games.

For fans of Forza 7, and particularly those on PC, there is some good news for you. A new patch has been released which adds new game packs and in addition, fixes a lot of bugs which semi-plagued the PC release.

Spectate & Seed the Grid

Part of the new packs includes Spectate and Seed the Grid. The former, spectate, is pretty self-explanatory. Players now have the option to join lobbies or races simply to watch rather than participate. This might sound a little boring, but it does give you the option to perhaps follow a racer and pick up some tricks.

The latter is again, something which Forza 7 was missing. The option for the grid to be populated and set by the host. Therefore, either the better racers (or at least ones you trust) can be put where you think best and maybe all those random rammers can be kept to the rear.

The Patch also comes with some big PC specific fixes including;

  • Fixed an issue where information on the next race was missing in Forza Driver’s Cup campaign.
  • Fixed an issue with Text to Speech chat affecting multiplayer gameplay.
  • Text to Speech chat now has a 100-character limit for PC players (same as console character limit).
  • Fixed an issue where setting Dynamic Render Quality to a specific level changes the Performance Target from “Unlocked,” but the menu still shows the setting as “Locked.” Now, when any advanced option is changed using the mouse, Dynamic Optimization changes from “Dynamic” to “Custom.”

What do we think?

The fix, as comes to us in a report via DSOGaming, is certainly good news and represents perhaps the biggest list of changes and more importantly fixes since the launch.

We are certainly not suggesting that Forza 7 is perfect and frankly, in my opinion, it won’t be until microtransactions are scrapped. The general play and online experience, however, should be a lot more enjoyable for gamers.

What do you think? Do you play Forza? Planning on going back now after the patch? – Let us know in the comments!

    Have they fixed the random crashes to desktop, the game not loading whenever Windows 10 updates a Microsoft App, the need to regularly uninstall and reinstall the Teredo adapter, the game starting to stutter every few seconds during a long gaming session?

  2. Ðave says:

    Having now played the game after the update, none of the major PC bugs have been fixed and new bugs have been introduced such as black screens in multiplayer lobbies and everyone’s car on screen at the same time in a multiplayer lobby, obscuring all of the menus.
