If you’ve been anxious to get your hands on Forza Motorsport 6 after watching our gameplay impression from E3 then I am happy to say that your wait is finally over!  As of right now the official Forza Motorsport 6 demo is available in the Xbox Live Game hub.  Just boot up the ol’ Xbox One and download it!  The Forza Motorport 6 demo will give players a taste of everything that’s offered in the full version: a “sampling” of the 460 cars and 26 tracks that will be in Forza Motorsport 6, and experiences featuring the new environment effects like rain and night racing.

As an added bonus anyone who downloads and plays the demo will have the Ford GT added to their “Forza Garage” for free.  So, if someone decides to buy the game after playing the demo they’ll have Ford’s new supercar already waiting for them.

Forza Motorsport 6 Launch Trailer:

In addition to the demo being dropped today Turn 10 also announced a new “Forza Fuel Challenge” contest.  The aim of the contest is to ultimately match a really fast Forza 6 player against a real life driver.  To enter, just download the demo and complete the demo experience.  This will unlock the “Forza Fuel Rivals Challenge”.  From there, the fastest players from 5 different countries will be selected for an all expenses paid trip to the Circuit Of The Americas in Austin, Texas where they will virtually race in Forza against a professional driver (coughcoughProbablyTannerFoustcough) who will be racing on the actual track.  Even better is that there will be “wild card” positions as well, so you wouldn’t theoretically need to be the fastest to be chosen for the trip.  That’s great news for a guy like me because I suck at Forza! Yay!

Oh, and one more thing.  Turn 1o Studios also announced the “Fast & Furious Car Pack” for Forza Motorsport 6.  The DLC car pack will include the following:

·         1970 Dodge Charger R/T Fast & Furious Edition (EDIT: This car is NOT in the Fast & Furious car pack but will be available at a later date)
·         1968 Dodge Charger Fast & Furious Edition

That’s a ton of Forza news is it not?!  This is definitely a good day for Forza fans.  I should also let you know that we will be reviewing Forza Motorsport 6 ourselves and we are taking suggestions as to what you want to see covered in our review.  Simply tell us any points you want us to cover for example: “I want to see a graphical comparison between Forza 5 & Forza 6”.  You can give your suggestion to us in two ways.  You can leave it in the comments below, or you can visit this thread on the official Forza Motorsport forums and post it there.
