I know this is probably a waste of time to ask but what happened to the second of the two additional car packs that were to be released ?

This is a super appropriate question. Hopefully they will map out and tell us something with this next stream on Wednesday otherwise this will be the third month in a row with not only any dlc news but no dlc at all which will yield disappointment. Now I don’t mind the spotlight cars as we have had some nice IMSA additions which this merkur definitely adds more life to the late 80s imsa cars ( which is probably T10 flexing their old IMSA partnership announcement) , but seriously when are we getting this last elusive car pack???

what will we get this month, hopefully a GoodWood expansion?

I’m really hoping the last car pack will be the Indy cars we read about months ago. If I remember correctly, the article I read had quoted a representative from indycar saying the new universal aerokit will be in FM7. I thought they would release it after Sonoma or maybe to coincide with the “Born Racer” documentary, which comes out tomorrow. . All I know for sure is, I’m itching to try it out in Forza.

Diablo… New Unicorn ? Or available every time ?

They mention the word exclusive so it’s likely that is an unicorn.

Hopefully an expansion of some kind… I really liked the Porsche & NASCAR expansions for FMS6 :smiley:

Would be sensible to since we have another 1+ years before another FMS, but I’m really wondering if there may be one coming based from the notes unless they’re talking about more modes (like the recent addition of drag)…

from www.forzamotorsport.net/news/fm7_october_update :: The October update for Forza Motorsport 7 arrives on Tuesday, October 2! With this month’s update we’ve focused on numerous behind-the-scenes improvements to the game, as well as setting the stage for some important updates to come in the near future (more details, etc etc etc, then near the closing) In addition to kicking off our October Drift Bounty Hunter event live on the show, we’ll be diving deep into Forza Motorsport 7’s October’s changes with the folks at Turn 10 and looking ahead at what’s to come for the rest of 2018.

Plus, don’t forget everyone who sets a time in the special Merkur Rivals event with the XR4Ti will get the special exclusive 1999 Lamborghini Diablo GTR :wink:

imo, doesn’t mean there’s not plans for 2019 either. Even though Horizon 4 is out, 7 is still our most current Motor Sport until at least this time next year & I’m sure they’ll wanna keep us FMS’ers busy til then (besides little modes and Spotlight cars)…

I wouldn’t pay for an expansion until they fix the unresponsive car selection in both offline and online and add the race regulation system.

Another two bugs that STILL ruin the experience online are the lights off at night, and the tcs not turning on/off as requested before a race.

What time does the update release

One of the things I enjoy about FM7 is how it’s been expanding my horizons a bit. While the IMSA partnership hasn’t granted us up-to-date grids yet, it’s also true that we’ve been getting several interesting pieces of machinery which used to be completely alien to me and many others who have never been invested in the history of American sportscar racing in the 70s and 80s.

The Diablo GTR is a very nice bonus. I don’t like how it’s a unicorn, but it’s easy to get like the Z4M and the MGA so it’s not as big an issue.

The FD cars are very fun in FH4 and I suspect they’ll be even better in a closed circuit environment.

So I pre-ordered the digital Horizon 4, however its asking me to pay for the car pack in the buy cars menu.

Did you check your Ready to Install section? The drift pack is a dlc install, once installed, just go to auto show and claim them for free

There’s new FE cars in the game:
-Dodge Charger Daytona FE
-Chevy Bel Air FE
-BMW 850CSi FE
-Ford F-100 FE
-Ford Woody Wagon FE
-Cadillac Escalade FE

The Diablo can’t be bought but can be used as rental.

How do I get the Diablo? I don’t see a forzathon event for it

It will be given as a participation prize in the upcoming Merkur rivals event.
Just a set a time and the devs will gift you the car when the event is over.

People asking for expansions while the base game is still broken. That’s why companies get away with releasing unfinished products.

I don’t know if it was this update that fixed it, but I had around 100 messages pop up as soon as I loaded the game. It’s been a while since I’ve seen one.
