Update 6.0 Races In For Forza Motorsport

Forza

Turn 10 Studios has released update 6.0 for their racing title, Forza Motorsport.

This update rolls out a huge change for the game as it revamps the car progression system. One of the big changes here is the removal of the level restriction on car parts, allowing all parts to be available to install from car level 1.

Racers will also be able to use their in-game credits to purchase car points to upgrade their vehicle.

The new update also brings a lot of fixes and improvements to the game as well as a host of new career and multiplayer events.

You can see the full Forza Motorsport update 6.0 patch notes below:

New Content, Features and Events [All Platforms]

Car Progression Changes

  • We have removed the level restriction on performance parts, making them all available at Car Level 1. This allows players to install parts in any order they wish.
  • Players can use in-game Credits to acquire Car Points when exiting the upgrade screen at a ratio of 4,500 Credits for 500 Car Points. This change gives you a choice to immediately upgrade your car using Credits, or if you’re saving your Credits, you can earn Car Points for upgrades through car leveling as before.
