If there's one thing we know about Forza fans, it's that they really like cars. Luckily, Forza Motorsport 7 will apparently have (begins counting) ALL of the cars when it launches exclusively for the Xbox One and PC on Oct. 3.
The folks over at Gamespot recently got their hands on the first batch of vehicles to be listed for the Forza 7 roster, totaling 167 vehicles. And, yes, I said the "first batch." While a list of nearly 200 cars would be plenty for most racing games, the latest offering in the Forza series will have 700 vehicles crammed under the hood. If you spent just a single minute in each of those vehicles, you would have played the game for more than 11 and a half hours. Yeah, that's impressive.
Anyway, you can check out the full rundown of those first 167 cars, including brands such as Porsche, Lamborghini, Ferrari and Maserati. There's also a bunch of cars from Aston Martin in the lineup, as well as a couple from Bugatti, McLaren and even Lotus. If there's a dream car you've ever wanted to get behind the wheel of, chances are pretty good you'll be able to do exactly that in Forza 7. It's a good thing they put so much effort into making those cars so accurate to the real thing, as the virtual space is the closest many of us will ever get to laying a finger on these million-dollar machines.
It should come as no surprise that Forza 7 is one of the games being touted as "Better on Xbox One X." Just like with Halo, Gears of War and Bethesda titles like Wolfenstein II and The Evil Within 2, this latest entry in the Forza series is going to look extremely sharp in 4K on Microsoft's latest console.
As the original post points out, some of these vehicles will be making their first major Forza appearance in this seventh iteration. Porsche, for instance, was previously under an exclusivity agreement with EA that expired in 2016. And while Porsche's stable of vehicles will also appear in the upcoming Gran Turismo Sport, we're not sure that PlayStation exclusive series will boast a full roster anywhere near 700 strong.
It seems kind of silly to speculate with another 530-odd cars to be announced for Forza 7, but is there anything you're especially hoping to see make the cut by the time the final lineup gets announced? And, real talk, about how many of those cars do you think you'll actually bother driving around once they've been unlocked?
Whether or not 700 vehicles seems like overkill, it certainly seems like the developers at Turn 10 are, above all else, aiming to maintain Forza's status as the ultimate video game driving experience.
