Yesterday Americans found out that they will be able to buy Forza 3 on the 27th October whilst our Antipodean cousins can pick it up a few days earlier on the 23rd. Now Microsoft have announced that here in Europe we will be able to tear up the racetracks much earlier on the 3rd October.
Update: Apologies, seems that I propagated an error. Checking more sources the European release date is 23rd October the same as for Australia and New Zealand. Thanks to PzR Tak for pointing out my mistake.
Alongside the announcement of the release date a whole paddock full of new screenshots have been released featuring a class of cars that Turn 10 like to call “Euro Sport Compacts” racing around Spain’s Circuit de Catalunya.
The Euro Sport Compacts group is an odd collection of cars that you would not normally expect to find grouped together; Alfa Romeo Brera TI, Alfa Romeo MiTo, Fiat 500 Abarth SS, Ford Fiesta Zetec S, Ford Focus RS, Lotus Evora, Mini Cooper JCW, Renault Twingo Renault Sport Cup, Saab 9-3 Turbo X, Seat Ibiza Cupra, Vauxhall Corsa VXR, Volvo C30 R-Design.
