Forza Motorsport is the 2023 reboot for the franchise that spanned seven entries, with the last one being Forza Motorsport 7. The game differs from the Forza Horizon series by bringing the focus back to motorsport racing on organized tracks. Players need to concentrate on each vehicle’s performance, tweaking stats by tuning their cars between races for an optimal performance that sees them win every race. This guide covers everything there is to know about Forza Motorsport, from its release date and the available editions to the cars in the game and all released trailers.

When is the Release Date for Forza Motorsport?

Forza Motorsport will be released on October 10, 2023. The game skips an incredibly busy September with titles like Starfield hitting consoles and PC, and is just far enough behind The Crew Motorfest to make its mark without being overlooked due to a much more popular release.

What Platforms is Forza Motorsport Coming to?

Forza Motorsport will only be released for PC via Steam and Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Series X/S. The developer, Turn 10 Studios, is a first-party Xbox Games Studio, so it’s incredibly unlikely that the title will ever release for any platform other than the ones we’ve already outlined.

Will Forza Motorsport be on Game Pass Day One?

Yes, Forza Motorsport will be available on Game Pass for PC and Xbox Series X/S on day one of release. The game is a first-party studio release, and they almost always launch on Game Pass to all subscribers. There will be a period where fans can pre-load the game before it launches, meaning they should be able to launch it from 00:01 AM in their local timezone on release day.

All Editions of Forza Motorsport Available to Pre-Order

There are three editions of Forza Motorsport available to pre-order, the Standard Edition, Deluxe Edition, and Premium Edition. The Standard Edition of the game includes the base game itself and costs $69.99.

The Deluxe Edition costs $89.99 and adds the Forza Motorsport Car Pass. That pass entitles players to one new car per week for thirty weeks. All of these cars are new to Forza, so players won’t have seen them before, no matter how many games in this series they’ve played.

The Premium Edition of Forza Motorsport has everything from the Deluxe Edition and adds the Race Day Car Pack, VIP Membership, and a Welcome Pack for $99.99. The Race Day Car Pack contains eight new cars that are available from day one. The VIP Membership gives players access to double credits and a host of other online benefits, such as new cars. Finally, the Welcome Pack grants all players five new cars and a big credit bonus to get them started in the game.

All Confirmed Cars for Forza Motorsport

Turn 10 Studios has confirmed that there will be over 500 cars in Forza Motorsport at launch. This roster will be added to over time with DLC and seasonal content. There’s an official list on the Forza website that’s being added to with each new trailer, but we’ve listed the cars below alongside their makes to help fans visualize the vehicles they’ll be driving.

Can Players Import Cars From Other Forza Games to Forza Motorsport?

Screenshot via Turn 10 Studios’ YouTube channel

No, there’s no way for fans to import their cars from other Forza games like Forza Horizon 5 or Forza Motorsport 7 to Forza Motorsport. This was confirmed early on by Turn 10 Studios. The reason car collections can’t be imported is likely due to a combination of the coding of the cars and licensing issues with the brands. If Turn 10 Studios has an agreement to create a car for one game, it can’t then use that car in another game without signing another deal. These deals cost a lot of money, so it’s understandable that not every car in Forza history will be included in this title.
