One important change that Forza 7 players will notice in October is in-game messaging asking players to use any Forza 7 prize crates before the end of the month. As we said in our Forza Summer Update, prize crates are being removed from Forza Motorsport 7, and this will officially happen in November.
Players will still have access to Driver Gear, badges, and Mod Cards but those items will not be available via prize crates starting next month. Look for more information on prize crate removal – and how players will still be able to access to Driver Gear, badges, and Mod Cards – next month.
October also sees the launch of the Formula D Car Pack in Forza Motorsport 7. This pack is available for players who pre-ordered the digital version of Forza Horizon 4 and the cars are available in both Horizon 4 and in Forza Motorsport 7.
