The November update for Forza Motorsport 7 launched today. The November update includes some important changes in Forza Motorsport 7, including the removal of prize crates, the introduction of Race Shop, physics changes that affect collisions between cars in game, and more. For the full rundown on those changes, see our announcement story.
Due to the removal of prize crates, we have made an important change to our Forza Rewards programs. Instead of receiving prize crates per Tier, new Forza Motorsport 7 players will receive Mod cards per Tier. For the full rundown of what cards are available per Rewards Tier, check out November 2nd edition of the Forza Week in Review.
