    Josef Newgarden Bounty Hunter
    Think you’re faster than the 2017 IndyCar champion, Josef Newgarden? Now you can prove it with our inaugural Forza Motorsport 7 Bounty Hunter event, live now in the game. As we announced last weekend during our livestream debut, Josef will be setting times in this event and taking on the Forza community in the process. We’ve got a couple of important updates to the event that I wanted to make you aware of. First, please take note of Josef’s correct Gamertag; it’s JNRACERTPX2 (yes, it was announced incorrectly during the live show). Be sure to add Josef to your Xbox Live friends’ list so you can take on his time. Secondly, as of today Josef has posted his first lap time in the event, a sterling 1:47.530 as of this publishing. (For those keeping score, that’s two-tenths faster than me! Grr…)

    Finally, let’s talk prizes. For this Bounty Hunter, we’ve got two very special reward cars on tap. For everyone who sets a time in the event, we’ll be sending the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Super Sport. All players who beat Josef’s final time will receive the 1977 Holden Torana A9X Forza Edition. That’s two cars that aren’t currently available anywhere else in Forza Motorsport 7. So what are you waiting for? Get to hot-lapping!

    Today's update introduces a 2X base credit bonus after every race for Forza Motorsport 7 VIPs. In addition, this update addresses the following issues in the game:

    • Fixed an issue where VIP cars and Driver Gear were unavailable offline.
    • Fixed a memory leak issue where the game would become unresponsive or close unexpectedly for some PC players after upgrading cars or using the Livery Editor.
    • Fixed an issue for PC players who were experiencing multiple repeated black-screen crashes at launch.

    Update...

    Over the past few weeks we have been investigating an issue where a small number of players’ game saves were deleted and unrecoverable if their save was corrupted or if they ran into a connected storage error. As part of our investigation, we have been closely working with the Xbox team to address the issue. In addition to recently introduced platform changes, today’s FM7 update includes a pop-up error notice that will prevent players from mistakenly deleting their game save should they enter this state.

    While we believe the Xbox update will prevent players from entering this state going forward, players who receive this pop-up error in the game will be prevented from continuing in the game and will be asked to contact Forza support for further assistance. This will prevent the player from unwittingly deleting their save (though players will have the option to manually delete the save if they wish).

    We regret the trouble this issue has caused for players.

    In addition to the above, today’s update for Forza 7 includes the following improvements:

    • Fixed an issue where players were running into black loading screens in some multiplayer and League sessions and being removed from the race.
    • Fixed an issue where, when entering a multiplayer lobby with Text to Speech or Speech to Text active, navigation would not be possible. In addition, players can now close the text window with use of a keyboard.
    • Fixed an issue with the Bugatti Type 35, which prevented it from racing in Forza Driver’s Cup races.

    "Esports Features Coming to Forza 7
    We’re always looking for new ways to deliver a phenomenal experience to both players and fans alike and we’ve got a number of new, esports-centric features lined up for Forza Motorsport 7. Today, we’re excited to share the first two features: Spectate and Seed the Grid. These exciting features are a cornerstone of the Forza Motorsport 7 esports experience and, since they last appeared in Forza Motorsport 6, have been rethought and redeveloped from the ground up for Forza Motorsport 7 to deliver a dramatically improved on-track experience for both drivers and viewers:

    Spectate
    Watch live multiplayer races with our brand new Spectate feature. Improved camera transitions and performance means you’ll never miss the action. Positioning data for on-track cars is 100% precise as well, which means that what players see in Spectate is exactly what’s happening in the race.

    Seed the Grid
    Players will be able to set up multiplayer races just as they like with the new Seed the Grid feature. Lobby hosts can now manually set the grid order during race setup, and a completely overhauled interface offers hosts and viewers alike new details, like real-time player grid position changes.

    Both Spectate and Seed the Grid will be added as part of our February content update for Forza Motorsport 7 and represent just the start of our esports feature set."

    Have been playing a bit Forza 7 on my sons Xbox one with my old G27, actually having a good time going though the carrer.
    A lot of nice cars and some really nice tracks. The AI though, is mostly in the way.. . ;)
