I dont really understand them adding SUV's and trucks to the game. I certainly like variety, but for every time i play cat and mouse or do a fun goon race with trucks, there are 100 times some idiot in the public hoppers uses a jeep cherokee SRT-8 to ram me.

Actually I thought so too but then I remembered I got rewards at the beginning of july, then I went up a tier and collected rewards again and it just made up the difference. August's rewards aren't available for 6 more days, probably what you experienced as well.

Nah I've been level 7 for several months, and have always been able to claim on the first of the month and never been able to claim the difference in months where I leveled up. It sounds like you're experiencing some sort of bug if you have to wait 6 more days for your rewards.

Edit: Scratch that, looks like there's another claim in 6 days? Weird? Also I'm only 600 points away from the next tier, but I don't think I get the Tier 8 Audi unless I'm that tier before I start the game up but idk I'm just guessing.

I was weak and bought the Ultimate edition.

I have to say though I'm a lot more optimistic for this game than I was for 5. Looks like we might actually get Porsches next year too?

You can't have it all. I think they done good.

And holy poo poo I just realized Sonoma is Infineon!!! So happy. Hockenheim is cool too. I didn't like it so much in 4, but I think it will play well in 6, especially with the faster cars we have now that didn't exist in 4.

Ok my last post was a bit but really excited for this game, very happy that Sonoma is back and I still have my XBox 360 if I want to race on Maple Valley, Sonoma, Tsukuba, or Fujimi.

So there are 25 tracks announced, not 26, unless I've forgotten one. It was confirmed that goodwood is not a track and that the tweet by Ford was just worded badly. So that leaves one mystery track left.

New To the Forza Series
Returned to the Forza Series after not being in FM5

1. Bernese Alps
2. Brands Hatch
3. Circuit de Catalunya
4. Circuit de Prague
5. Circuit de Spa Francorchamps
6. Circuit des 24 Heures Du Mans (Le Mans)
7. Circuit of the Americas
8. Daytona International Speedway

9. Hockenheim
10. Indianapolis Motor Speedway
11. Lime Rock Park
12. Long Beach
13. Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca
14. Monza
15. Mount Panorama Motor Racing Circuit (Bathurst)
16. Nürburgring
17. Rio de Janeiro
18. Road America
19. Road Atlanta
20. Sebring International Raceway
21. Silverstone
22. Sonoma Raceway
23. Test Track Airfield
24. Top Gear
25. Watkins Glen
26. Yas Marina Circuit


So that's 7 tracks that are all new and 2 that are returning from older Forza games.

Divided up into regions:
North America: 12 (Including 1 fictional track)
Europe: 11 (Including 2 fictional tracks)
Australia: 1
South America: 1 (Including 1 fictional track)
Asia: 1

Edit: Lime Rock Park is the one I forgot. That's all folks.

This is awesome and good. I'm excited to have my home track in the game (COTA), and I always actually liked Hockenheim. Sonoma was really fun in 4, and I've never played Monza in a racing game so I'm excited to try that out.

It is kind of a bummer that Maple Valley isn't in, and Suzuka would have been really cool and good too.

However, if we ARE only at 25/26 then maybe one of those will be the last one. Lime Rock

I'm really hoping for classic layout variations like we get with Le Mans. If not, Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends (PC game based on the shift 2 engine, it's actually pretty good) has them.

This is a good post and the info should be in the OP now that it is confirmed.

I am sad Suzuka, Tsubka and Maple Valley didn't make the cut, but these new tracks look rad as hell. If some of them are half as fun as I've heard they are, 7 for 3 is a drat good trade.

They should do more of the Australian circuits. I mean Xbox sponsors a v8 supercars team, some are F1 circuits (the Melbourne GP, Eastern Creek [which is also the World Time Attack Venue]) and theres a few gnarly street races in the v8 supercar series that would be pretty fun (similar to Long Beach I suppose)

plus we have lots of cool smaller tracks like Wakefield Park which is a popular amateur track (that is also a v8 supercar circuit).

I guess due to the positioning of some that they arent really nice spectacles, but they are fun tracks to drive on.

It's got a lot of different types of corners. Ultra challenging to master.

And elevation changes. While not drastic, they are there and make for a very dynamic lap. Every corner is unique and engaging in its own way.

It's this combined with it being a 'classic'-stye track. Most older tracks like Brands Hatch are much faster and are more about flow and momentum, while most newer tracks are a lot slower and more about technicality and do not flow well.

Brands Hatch is a blast and will probably trip less-experienced players up a lot. It and The Glen are the best track additions to this game, though it's nice to see Monza and Lime Rock, and Sonoma coming back also rocks.
