    I'm more on the Sim side of the market too, and the main problem I have with Forza Motorsport is that races don't feel like Motorsport events. I would like proper championships with qualifying and pit stops. It could easily be introduced as an option for those that want it, or a separate career mode in the game. I don't know why they don't have different career modes generally as it would be fairly trivial to implement. The assets are already there, and I think Forza's driving model is about perfect for pad control.

    As it is, Forza just feels so lifeless and sterile. I'm pretty bored of 2-3 lap races and having to bash my way to first place from 8th place every race. I've been doing that since Grant Turismo 2.

    I joined the Xbox thing for a quid so have been playing this quite a lot over the weekend. For some reason I thought the map was much bigger than it is - I kept expecting other bits of the uk to be opened up! Iím loving the cars in it though, especially the Abarth 124, the giulia and the lovely range of old 911s. Itís been ages since Iíve played Forza and I forgot how fun it is to tinker with upgrades.

    the updates are a pain in the ass, constantly needing 5GB updates to play or else you need to faff around with going offline.

    Fired this up for the first time in about 8 months, completely forgetting I'd bought the ultimate edition so it was a nice surprise to see all the DLC waiting for me. Was playing on a 970 previously and it really does look lovely after upgrading to a 2080 in 4K. Such a good looking game.

    The newest update includes a Battle Royale mode called Eliminator (and some achievements with it).

    I have to say I'm rather impressed by how they continue supporting the game and constantly add new features. I'm glad they skipped a new edition of "proper" Forza this autumn. Forza 7 was (and remains) a disappointment.

    Played a game yesterday came 4th out of 58. I had no clue what I was doing until the Showdown race. Before that I kept "challenging" by tooting my horn but nothing seemed to happen !

    You can only challenge someone if you're close by, I believe. You'll see a prompt on your screen, similar to the head-to-head races.

    When within about 10 foot of someone who isnt already racing, they have a cross through the icon on the mini map if they challenged already.

    If you stop moving you go off the mini map.

    Hmm, does that mean it'll be a launch title on the Series X?

    Fired this up for the first time since getting an HDR monitor. The HDR in this is pretty gobsmacking, isn't it?

    @Rogueywon It's been said a million times before but HDR > 4K.

    The Boneshaker car is a bit overpowered and a rare chance to actually have the car as its not been avaible apart from 1 promotion at release.

    Same. I got the add on pack to take it up to ultimate because there's a metric shit tonne of content in the Lego and Fortune Island add-ons.

    My favourite arcade Racer now outside of a Ridge Racer. RIP

    The Ferrari 599XX E freebie has upset a few people. It was regularly going for 16-20 mil on the auction house. Fuck em!

    Now everyone has the fastest car in the game.

    I don't know this for sure but I'm going to assume that they'll be leaving the final days cars up for a while, so if you get a chance to clear the start of then game and make it to the open world you should be good.

    I'll check later and see if they are still up.

    I didn't think it extended beyond the 25th. Oh well. Next year! When no one will give a fuck about the game.

    Nothing really but you end up with loads of cash eventually anyway.

    They act as 'festival' sites essentially. You can choose which one to spawn at, customize cars/avatars, etc. And some unlock different perks (ie skill songs/fast travel) aswell as giving super wheelspins which can earn you lots of cash or rare items.

    Seems Iím the only one on here playing The Eliminator mode then?

    Whilst sceptical at first, itís actually excellent and works really well - it also appears to be growing in popularity as finding a game a few weeks ago would take 5+ minutes and now itís pretty much instant.

    I would advise trying this, even if youíre not all keen on Battle Royale games......this has definitely got something about it

    @Ultrasoundwave I've had a few wee shots of it. It can be a lot of fun or it can be absolute murder depending on where the circle is and how quickly you can find opponents.
