[XB1, PC] Forza Motorsport 7 Standard $12.48, Deluxe $22.49, Ultimate $29.98 (75% off) @ Microsoft (Delisted on September 15)

1300

It's just been announced that Forza Motorsport 7 is getting delisted from the Microsoft Store on September 15. This also means that it'll no longer be available on Game Pass (Game Pass players who purchased DLC will receive a token for the game).

On September 15, 2021, Forza Motorsport 7 will reach End of Life status. This means that the game and its DLC will no longer be available to purchase in the Microsoft Store or available with Xbox Game Pass.

However, after September 15, players who already own Forza Motorsport 7 will still be able to download and play the game and its associated content as normal. In addition, features like multiplayer and online services will still be accessible for those who own the game.

For any Xbox Game Pass players who previously purchased DLC for the game, but not the game itself, we have good news! You will receive a token for the game through the Xbox Message Center so that you can continue playing Forza Motorsport 7. Token distribution will be through August 2. However, if after that date you have not received your token, please contact Xbox Support here. (Unused tokens will expire on September 15, 2023.)

If you know someone who has yet to play Forza Motorsport 7, we are offering a discount on the game in the Microsoft Store through September 15.

    No I don't feel as burnt buying it and then it going on gamepass.
    Still trying to dial in logitech wheel on pc - lots of customisation and my usb handbrake works.
    Just get some massive under steer in certain cars tracks.

    Been waiting for this!

    I'm curious as to why MS would do this? Cost of hosting / servicing the game exceeding the revenue generated by it, I guess? I can't recall any examples of games being declared EOL (apart from the Forza Motorsport series) and not available to purchase online (except for platform exclusivity reasons).

      licensing

    • +19 votes

      Licensing for the various cars, logos, likenesses, etc in-game. It happens with games that use licensed music too; they're not allowed to continue selling new copies but anyone who already has the game continues to own it.

      Since there's typically a new horizon every 2 years and a new motorsport every 2-3 years they just let each expire with about 1 year overlap (e.g., Horizon 4 will probably be removed next year). There's just been a bigger gap with Motorsport this time due to the new generation.

      • +2 votes

        And it's happened to other racing car games too. Dirt 3, Grid, F1 2013 all got removed from Steam a few years ago likely because of license issues.

    Bought the Forza Horizon 3 last time before delisted still didn't play yet.

      I like it just for the sight seeing lol.

      I'm not a fan of racing games, but spent 10+ hours on both Horizon 3 and 4.

    •  

      Same but I stuffed up and missed the hot wheels DLC…

      • +4 votes

        Ouch, the Hot Wheels DLC was really great.

        Microsoft should really be selling complete edition retail versions with all of the DLC in their games for preservation purposes.

        •  

          I only put a few hours into FH3 (I was still playing FH4 at the time). I never made it to the Hotwheels content. Is it worth going back and checking it out? Maybe I'll play that while I wait for a FH5 discount?

          •  

            @Stitchikins: Do you want to race on hotwheels tracks? Yes, keep grinding. No, don't bother.

      I own both Motorsports 7 and Horizon 4 and just enjoy the Gauntlet on HZ4, played it over 100 times now.

      Tried Motorsport 7 and I feel it takes too long to unlock what I want to do (ie drive Monaco circuit) so I just drive the Gauntlet over and over again with different cars :D

      • +1 vote

        I can't remember Monaco Circuit in FM7… or is it a special secret race track I'm missing?

          Haha I have no idea, I was hoping it was there, oh well :P

      Start knocking over the Australia Post Boxes, Telstra payphones and sulo bins, and you'll get hooked pretty quickly :)

  •  

    Physical?

  •  

    I looked and i already own Forza Motorsport 7 Ultimate which i didn't even know about. I guess i forgot that i bought it back in February this year. Another game which i haven't even played yet.

  • +2 votes

    Wouldn't it be cheaper to buy a small piece of DLC just to get the full game? (Presuming you're a game pass member)

    • +3 votes

      You could only do this prior to this mornings announcement. That method is no longer valid.
      I need to check whether i purchase any DLC over the course of the last few years while playing via GamePass. If not, ill probably pick up the base game digitally or a secondhand physical copy.

      •  

        Makes sense, oh well.

        For reference, the cheapest pieces of DLC are available for $9.40 each - not much of a saving to be honest.

    Wonder if free dlc counts as purchased dlc to get the game for free?

    Damn I've sorta been out of the gaming world a while but was meaning to play Forza Horizon 3 for the Aussie maps, anyway to still get it on PC for a reasonable price?

      it's still on cdkeys and what not, no idea on the reasonable price bit tho

      Probably need to buy a code from a grey market, like G2A I believe.

      I tried looking when I just missed out. I'm afraid you might need to sail the high seas.

    When is Forza 8 coming out ?

    Feeling a bit burnt by them removing this from gamepass without a replacement.

    One of the few games I play on gamepass at the moment.

    • +2 votes

      Maybe November next year.

    •  

      Same, it's pretty underwhelming. I tried getting back into Destiny, but nope, so it's Just F7 currently…

    • +2 votes

      Next year most likely, they're doing a huge rework to the engine so it should be a big improvement compared to FM7 if that makes the wait more worthwhile.

  •  

    Damn I bought the standard version in early June for $40+. Digital products appear not refundable per MS website, but is there still a way to get a refund / replacement?

    •  

      Go on the chat and just ask them maybe? they might be ok with doing that because the whole situation.

      •  

        thanks, found a way to request a refund on the Xbox website. have submitted a request explaining the situation and will see how it goes.

        Edit: refund rejected

        •  

          Try again, arguing in particular that the player pool will be reduced or MP turned off entirely (idk what they're doing, idc tbh) and you only bought it a month ago as it is, never hurts to try. I've had nothing but great experiences when it comes to MS and refunds, and I've done my fair share.

          Hell, I've bought a fair few full priced games just bc they had the 6000 MS Reward points, then returned the games, and pocketed the points.

        •  

          Try again and push a bit, they will always say something like we can't do refunds for X but if you push a bit and act sad (lol) they tend to help and go a bit further, be super nice too.

    I might as well buy it, i'm glad i bought Forza Horizon 3 when i got the chance as now i can play it on PC with better graphics.

  •  

    A bit disappointing they have to de-list it considering there isn't a new game out yet. It's been what, 4 years since Forza 7 came out now.

  •  

    does it work on Windows 7?

    •  

      Looks like it doesn't:

      Minimum
      Your device must meet all minimum requirements to open this product
      OS Windows 10 version 15063.0 or higher

    •  

      It's only available on the Microsoft Store, which is only on Windows 10.

  •  

    I like gamepass for the variety but I personally prefer to own my games. I don’t want corporations telling me when i can and can’t resist them.

    That’s the beauty of gaming. As an older gamer I loved switching on the N64 or whatever for a quick blast. Given all the money we pour into gaming now it’s just funny to me to now we get less freedom not more.

      Thing is Xbox 1st party will always stay in game pass and that's why most people sign up to it. Motorsport and Horizon are the only games that will leave because it's been delisted which is a legal issue not MS just removing games just because they can. I do think that the upcoming Forza Horizon and Forza Motorsport will have a better clauses in the contracts to keep it at least in game pass forever. Also you can still buy the physical copies of these 2 games so theres that.

        Yeh damn they need better contracts. Same story with so many but particularly outrun arcade… damn what a game. Also bring back scud race!

    Nice, I wish they did this more when they delist games.

    Pretty sure it's coming to gamepass end of year

  •  

    Is Forza 7 worth it if you have, and didn’t get that far into, Forza 6? Are there any exclusive modes in 7?

    I was a big fan of Forza 4. Forza 5 was scant. Forza 6 was okay. Played Horizon 1 and 2 to death. Halfway through 3… and 4 is on the backlog.

    Whaddya think?

  •  

    What's the difference between the 3 versions vs just Standard one?

  •  

    What's your favourite car racing + modification game on PC?
    Please comment below, I want to invest in one.

  •  

    Thanks. Been waiting for a decent deal on forza horizon 4. But this will do for now.

  •  

    Can't promise anything but they often give it away on game with gold just before delisting

    •  

      Wish the same could be said for Forza Horizon 3.

  •  

    I'm hoping this is like FH3 where there are even further discounts as time goes on until it gets fully delisted. I'll bite at <$10

  •  

    No one has actually said how good the game is? Pls rate. I have a few of the previous versions and all were fun….

    •  

      As fun as previous ones, not heaps more fun but better graphics.

    •  

      Nobody is commenting on that because it's an old game with about a billion reviews.

  •  

    Is the ultimate version worth it over the other two? It appears to just be extra cars

  •  

    Only 1 day left!!

  •  

    Sale price ends in 7 days. I'm curious to see if it will go on sale again, drop further or be given away with Gold.

    •  

      Well, no, it's EOL, thus the sale.

      •  

        It's not being delisted till the middle of next month. What are you thinking will occur after this sale ends in 7 days?

    •  

      It's just been extended again until the delisting.

  •  

    Thanks picked it up today.

  •  

    This reminder came up today. What's the go, is it as good/better than Forza 3 Australia (only one i've played/picked up cheap)?
    Wonder if it will continue to drop? Sounds reasonable though.

    •  

      That was Forza Horizon, and they COMPLETELY different

      •  

        If you like Horizon, don’t bother. 4 is amazing, and will be available on Game Pass for a while longer yet. 5 coming out in November.

        And then the next Motorsport probably coming out some time late next year

        •  

          Oh right so this is a driving Sim not a Game?

  •  

    got caught up with something and totally forgot about this. Anyone had experience buying a key from G2A that is for US region and activating it ? VPN?
