Like clockwork, Forza Motorsport 7 has gone gold, which is game dev jargon meaning it’s finished and ready for burning onto assorted discs and whizzed to stores across the globe. Turn 10, in a world of delays, you never disappoint us. The news is joined by a brand spanking new trailer some new unveiled cars, as well as confirmation of a demo winging its way to both Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs shortly.

“Forza fans, the green flag is about to drop on Forza Motorsport 7! The game goes live worldwide on Oct. 3, with Ultimate Edition owners hitting the track on Sept. 29,” writes Turn 10’s Brian Ekberg. “As we near the finish line, the team has been working non-stop to deliver fans the biggest and best Forza game yet and, today, we’re very happy to announce that Forza Motorsport 7 has officially gone gold.”

If you’re wondering about that earlier September 29th date, that’s Microsoft’s slightly infuriating initiative to allow those who pre-order the most expensive Ultimate Editions of games to play them earlier. The FM7 Ultimate Edition is $99.99, while the Standard Edition is $59.99.

As for that demo, the PC and Xbox One Forza Motorsport 7 demos are out on September 19th. Kudos to Microsoft and Turn 10 because this is a great way for PC fans to give it a test run and ensure Forza 7 has great PC performance before they splash the cash. The demo includes three cars and three tracks - (Porsche 911GT2 RS, Mercedes-Benz Tankpool, Nissan NISMO GT-R LM; Dubai Jebel Hafeet Pass, Italian Mugello Circuit and Germany’s Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit). The Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit features dynamic weather so it should be the perfect testbed for Forza Motorsport 7’s PC performance.

The full Forza Motorsport 7 system requirements are already out so be sure to head to its game page here on GD to ensure your rig’s up to the task, as well as received estimated performance benchmarks. The racer has looked absolutely gorgeous in previews so expect Forza 7 to be a demanding game to max out.

Can't wait to see benchmarks of this game, I want to see the minimum most needed card for 4k at 60fps. Keep hearing Xbox X people talking about muh "6 teraflops" and "forza 7 is 4k 60fps" when the game is not cpu sided just gpu really so lets see how much power of a gpu you need for just 4k 60fps

Curious price for a digital copy. Does it come with a complementary pat on the back and a trip to Disneyland?

I was just being sarcastic, I consider the price to be greatly inflated.

Agreed, $100 for early access!! Seems like a real money grabbing move. But still, I really really like the Forza series.

Microsoft's got you covered. ALL the content for a penny under 100 bucks. They are spoiling us.
