Forza Motorsport 7 has officially gone gold, Turn 10 Studios and Microsoft have announced.
If you’re not hip to the lingo, when a game “goes gold,” that means development is complete on the version that will be pressed onto discs and shipped around the world. All that’s left to do is sit patiently while physical copies are manufactured and digital ones are uploaded to servers in anticipation of next month’s launch.
Don’t want to wait that long to hit the track? You don’t have to. On September 19th, Turn 10 will be putting out a free demo of the game on both Xbox One and PC. Three different races will be on offer, and each one will apparently be locked to a particular vehicle. You’ll be able to take the Porsche 911 GT2 RS around the Dubai circuit, the Mercedes-Benz Tankpool racing truck around the Mugello circuit in Italy, and the Nissan Nismo GT-R LM around the Nürburgring Grand Prix. The demo will also support the new dynamic weather system, complete with thunderstorms, though it sounds like that may be limited to the just Nürburgring for this trial. It’ll include graphics settings for the PC version and adjustable driving assists on both platforms, too.
Alongside those two announcements, Microsoft and Turn 10 also released a new live-action commercial for the game featuring some very expensive cars, comedian Adam Carolla, professional driver Ken Block, and seven random actors who are probably just happy for the work. It’s got a cute enough concept that we won’t spoil it for you here, in case you’d like to give it a watch yourself.
The full version of Forza Motorsport 7 arrives October 3rd for Xbox One and PC, though those who pre-order the Ultimate Edition can start playing September 29th.
