Forza Motorsport 2 Dated January 26, 2007Posted by dpcough in Xbox/ Xbox 360 General.
Forza Motorsport 2 has been dated for May 2007. No official date has been given but it is coming in May. After a delay from the holiday season it has been pushed back and finally dated to May. It will have functions with the Xbox 360 Racing Wheel and most likely the best experience. They also announced ten tracks:

- Test Track
And announced some multiplayer options:
- Advanced Rules: In this options tab, you set damage type, tire wear and fuel consumption, collisions, spectators’ voices, grid order, and the end race timer. It’s worth noting that we’ve upped the ante when it comes to damage and how it affects your car this time around. The “cosmetic” or “limited” damage settings give you a taste of a fender bender, while the “simulation” setting allows you to knock off everything from fenders, bumpers, sideview mirrors, windshields, and in worst case scenarios, entire engine blocks are demolished with one impact. And finally, the end race timer allows you to set a countdown after the first-place winner crosses the finish line.
- Overrides Options: The whole purpose of overrides is to let the host restrict how people race on their server. Options here include the ability to force all players to use manual transmission, force the suggested line to be turned off, force STM, TCS, and ABS to be inactive, as well as force a certain camera view, whether it be hood or behind-the-car. The game also gives you the option to force stock upgrades and tuning for all cars on the track, essentially leveling the playing field for cars of the same make.
- Car Restrictions: The last tab in the multiplayer options menu is all about letting the host get specific about the kind of race he wants to run. The restriction categories here include Car Class (D-R4, “no race cars”, or “any”), Performance Index (restrict the room for cars under a specific PI number), Power (restrict the room for cars in a specific horsepower range), Region (North America, Europe, Asia), Make (choose from all 50 of our manufacturers), Model, Year, Curb Weight, Drive Type, and Engine Position. Additionally, as you narrow the scope of your room, a number at the bottom of the screen tells you in real-time how many cars you have in your Arcade and Career garages that qualify for this specific room.
