Forza Motorsport was released earlier last month, and although the reviews were generally positive, many players wanted more. The game was also plagued with several bugs and technical issues, but Turn 10 Studios announced plans to fix these issues with the update and also bring new tracks to the game as part of a DLC. The latest 2.0 update has now landed in the game, and the popular Yas Marina track in Abu Dhabi is now available for free with different layouts.
Forza Motorsport Gets Free Track With the Latest Update
The latest update 2.0 brings the popular Yas Marina track in Abu Dhabi, which is considered one of the most technologically advanced tracks in the world for its architecture and beautiful sights. The Yas Marina track has been made popular by Formula 1 and is the current site of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The Yas Marina track is the first free track in Forza Motorsport and was featured in previous games in the franchise, including Forza Motorsport 5, 6, and 7. The track has been rebuilt for the game with its current race season layout, with more flowing hairpins for exciting races and opportunities for players to overtake their opponents.
The track now arrives in the game with four different circuits. These are the 3.28-mile Full Circuit, North Circuit, South Circuit, and North Corkscrew. The popular track is available in the new Prestige Tour, the Forza GT, and the Forza Touring Car Spec Series in Featured Multiplayer and Featured Rivals events as well.
Players can also enjoy the track in open class, but it is not available in the Builders Cup Series as of now due to a bug that the developers are currently working on. The developers will also be releasing a new renowned track, Nürburgring Nordschleife, in Forza Motorsport in the spring of 2024. Other than the new Yas Marina track, there are 20 different tracks currently available in Forza Motorsport, including some new tracks and some from previous titles in the franchise.
Some of the popular tracks are Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Grand Oak Raceway, Homestead-Miami Speedway, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit, Le Mans-Circuit International de la Sarthe, Lime Rock Park, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Nürburgring GP, Silverstone Circuit, and WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.
