Pull Up to the Starting Line for Forza Motorsport Update 6

Forza Motorsport Update 6 invites you to explore different engines, the beating heart inside your favorite cars.

Look forward to a new Featured Tour – the Combustion Tour – with additional Spotlight cars and Car Pass deliveries each week, as well as a fresh schedule of Multiplayer and Rivals events.

Update 6 also introduces the changes to Car Progression we told you about previously and adjusts the Daytona pit-lane exit following your feedback.

Forza Motorsport Update 6 rolls out for download from 10:00 AM PT / 6:00 PM UTC on Xbox Series X|S and PC via the Microsoft Store and Steam. Spotlight cars and new Career, Featured Multiplayer and Rivals events start Wednesday, March 13 from 4:00 PM PT (12:00 AM UTC on Thursday, March 14).

Car Progression

With the changes coming to Car Progression in Forza Motorsport Update 6, you will have the freedom to equip the parts you want to install on your car regardless of Car Level.

The first change is to remove the level restriction on performance parts, making them all available at Car Level 1. This allows players to install parts in any order they wish, regardless of Car Level. Whether it’s engine swaps, race tires, or body kits, you will have the freedom to build cars your way.

Secondly, players can use in-game Credits to acquire Car Points when exiting the upgrade screen at a ratio of 4,500 Credits for 500 Car Points. This change gives you a choice to immediately upgrade your car using Credits, or if you’re saving your Credits, you can earn Car Points for upgrades through car leveling as before.

Game Improvements and Release Notes

We continue to optimize and improve the overall stability of Forza Motorsport. Update 6 introduces new fixes and experience improvements, including additional lighting options for the Livery Editor to help players see how their designs look in different conditions.

Following the addition of Daytona to our track list in Update 4, we’ve heard your feedback and have changed the pit lane exit to address track-rejoin collisions and more closely reflect the track as it is used in real life events.

This update also introduces 8 new music tracks to the game, composed by Kaveh Cohen and Michael Nielsen, and Peter Holmstrom, and these will be played while you’re in the Homespace.

Below you will find a snapshot of the other fixes and improvements in Update 6. Head on over to Forza Support to find the full release notes.

New Career Tour – Combustion Tour

Engines come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and configurations. The Combustion Tour is where you will experience first-hand how the number of cylinders found in an engine is foundational to delivering its power.

Discover small-sized engines with remarkable power output in 4 Cylinder Furies. Explore iconic 6-cylinder cars that epitomize enthusiast motoring in Super Sixes. Go back in time and immerse yourself in the golden era of Detroit muscle with V8 Heritage. Finally, master an elite class of engines that defy convention in V10 Titans.

Spotlight cars featured in the Combustion Tour allow you to experience the true potential of these engines. Get ready to race in the 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C, 2002 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II, 1969 Dodge Charger R/T, and 2014 Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4.

Series within the Combustion Tour do not have to be completed in a particular week – you have until April 24, 2024, to finish this latest Featured Tour. Spotlight cars are available at a discount for the week during which they are featured.

Complete the Combustion Tour to earn the 2009 Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster – an ultra-exclusive hypercar with exceptional performance from its 7.3-liter V12 delivering 678 horsepower.

Open Class Tour – Engine Cylinders

With each update to Forza Motorsport, the Open Class Tour gets refreshed with new events and a new reward car.

Open Class Tour is where you can continue the journey of your favorite cars. Cars that you’ve already built in a different Builders Cup series can be further levelled up and upgraded in the Open Class Tour.

In Update 6, cylinder count is king in this unique twist on the Open Class Tour with Drivatars racing cars ranging from modest to high-performance engines.

All 4 refreshed Open Class Tour series (C, B, A, S) will be available on March 13. Your reward for completing all four of these series before April 10, 2024, will be the 2010 Ferrari 599XX with its screaming V12 engine!

In Featured Multiplayer, new variations in the Open Series combine class restrictions with engine cylinder counts. Engine swaps change the number of cylinders your car has under the hood, so experiment with different builds and tuning setups to find the perfect balance on the track.

Week 1 challenges you to build A class cars with 4-cylinder engines, followed by S class cars with 6-cylinder engines in Week 2. Then in Week 3 tune your favorite A class cars with 8 cylinders before maximizing power and performance with S class cars and 12-cylinder engines in Week 4!
