Very cool, though I'm pretty annoyed to have to pay for something that should have already come with the original game.

Depending on what it cost for the licensing agreement and that the pack is not just the cars but also events, I disagree. Regardless, this is cool!

Another $20 I'll probably end up forking over. Too bad the Season Pass doesn't cover this.

Awesome! I came here to post this, but see you're already on top of it. I'll happily pay the $20. Imagine the 944-Spec wreckfests... err, I mean "races"... on our Forza nights! :D

Wow, some good info there - thanks for the links. Yeah, it would be fun to run some 944 races...we did that with the 944 Turbo in Forza 3 and it's really what led to the spec-series races that we've been doing ever since.

I'll be curious to see what the final car and event list looks like - sounds like it might be similar to the Porsche Unleashed experience from way back.

Also as of today Rick won't be stuck at level 150 any more. :D

Ohhh, I really like this:

Also announced was title update 3, which raises the level cap from 150 to 999, and will go live on March 6

That should have been in the game from the beginning, but it's nice to see they are adjusting to meet demand. ;)

There's some interesting background on the initial level cap and why it was what it was in one of the links that Weston posted. If nothing else, nobody can accuse the Forza developers of not watching the community and reacting accordingly!

And for those that don't want to dig for it.....

DG: With Forza 4, we changed the leveling structure so you could hit level 150 instead of level 50. We had done the math based on Forza 3 user data, which said it would take Forza 4 players nine months to hit level 150. It turns out they're playing Forza 4 twice as much or twice as often because they ended up hitting level 150 in less than four months.

That led to title update, which released today. It raises the cap to 999. I bring that up due to the success of the title. I don't know why people are playing twice as much, but I'm really excited they are. This is by far the most successful game we've made so far.

AB: So how long is it supposed to take us to hit level 999, then?

DG: We basically put a buffer on a buffer. We redid the math based on Forza 4 data, which is obviously a larger data set. That put us at roughly level 700 in about 12 months. But again, people are just playing so much. I'd be happy to be wrong again. Being wrong for that reason means people are enjoying the game and having a great time.

Ok, Rick - there's your challenge: get to level 700 in less than 12 months! :D

LOL - no, because I don't think it'll be much of a challenge. :)

I'm still stuck at level 150!!!! :mad: Because.....

Hi folks,

A quick notice on the next title update for Forza Motorsport 4. We experienced a last second technical hang-up ahead of the release of the title update and, as a result, it has been delayed. I'm still awaiting details on when it will be released so expect more soon.

As we have in the past, we'll be releasing details on the title update upon its release. Stay tuned for more information when I have it.

Thanks,

So the clock hasn't started yet! ;)

Although I respect Porsche I've never been a big enough fan with the exception of the Cayman. So I'll only download the free car so that I won't see the default DLC car during races and maybe purchase the Cayman separately.

One of the the concepts for the future for Forza 5 is that they are going to do separate development with Forza: Forza Horizon and going with the current titling Forza Motorsport 5. Horizon will focus on the arcade style gaming of Forza that seems to overwhelm the ones that are looking for the realism in a simulation game. Which is where Forza 5 will be the main concept towards the ppl that want the aspect of real life racing/track days.

The 2013 Viper is now available on Forza 4 through a download I'm told. Anyone try the new Viper yet?
