Today during the September Forza Monthly livestream we revealed the initial racing experience players will have when starting Forza Motorsport for the first time:
The first time you start up Forza Motorsport, you will have the chance to adjust several game settings like your preferred driving assists, accessibility options and PC graphics settings.
The opening races of the game include an Open Practice lap at Maple Valley behind the wheel of the all-new 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray and the last 2 laps of an endurance race at Hakone, where you will experience the stunning 2023 No. 01 Cadillac Racing V-Series.R.
Players can start their Forza Motorsport journey anywhere in the game. After the opening races, you can immediately jump into the modes you want to play, whether it’s the Builders Cup Career Mode, Featured Multiplayer, Free Play or Rivals.
We’ve curated the Builders Cup Intro Series to ease you into the game and get you ready to compete. This can be seen in the starter car and track combos, as well as the pace we introduce new mechanics like Open Practice. Starter cars include the 2019 Subaru STI S209, the 2018 Honda Civic Type R, and the 2018 Ford Mustang GT. Pick carefully, because you will level, build and race your chosen car across the Grand Oak Club Circuit, Mugello Club Circuit and Kyalami GP Circuit.
The Builders Cup Intro Series introduces you to our new car levelling and building systems. In-between each race, upgrade your car with new unlocked performance parts and tuning. You will see a new spider graph that helps you understand the balance in your car build. Before returning to the track, you can adjust the race options, including Drivatar difficulty and race rules which influence damage settings, rewind availability and the penalties enforced.
Before the Kyalami GP Featured Race, you will select your starting placement for the race. This is Challenge the Grid, our new risk-reward system. Your payout adjusts based on the grid position and you’ll earn a bonus if you achieve a podium finish. You will also see our fully dynamic 24-hour time-of-day in action, as the sunset in Open Practice transitions to a dark starry sky for the Featured Race.
Completing the Builders Cup Intro Series will unlock Practical Performance, the first stage of the Modern Tour. Each series you finish in the Builders Cup will earn you a trophy with bonus credits rewarded based on your series placement.
The Builders Cup Career Mode is comprised of Tours of Motorsport. Modern Tour introduces you to cars Built for Sport and Super Sedans; in the Enthusiast Tour experience Track Specials and JDM Legends; in the Power Tour drive Iconic Muscle cars and take on the C8 Challenge; and in the Legacy Tour rewind to a bygone era with Retro Tuners and Exotic Speed machines. This is only a snapshot of the themes that await in the Builders Cup.
Across all of these series you will take a single car and level, build and dominate your way to victory. Each Tour you fully complete will also unlock a special reward car at the end. For players who want full creative freedom in their build, check out the Open Class Tour featuring C to S Class Series.
The Career Mode also includes a Featured Tour. This is where we will spotlight new cars and tracks added to Forza Motorsport, and it’s a great way to continue your single-player racing journey.
