Introducing the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Xbox One X Edition for Forza Motorsport 7

Forza Motorsport 7 fans, get ready to experience a new level of power and performance with the launch of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Xbox One X Edition which is a free gift for all players. The specially designed F-150 joins the lineup of more than 700 cars in the game which showcases 60 frames per second racing on all Xbox One platforms and native 4K support on Xbox One X. With a custom livery based on Xbox One X’s codename “Project Scorpio” and numerous performance-minded upgrades, this Raptor is ready to intimidate all opponents in Forza Motorsport 7.

While the truck is significantly taller than stock – over 93 inches tall (2.3 meters) on 38 inch BF Goodrich Krawler T/A tires – the team behind the Xbox One X Raptor still wanted it to retain the race truck’s Baja-tested performance characteristics. The Raptor’s livery was designed by illustrator Hydro74 and features a stylized “Project Scorpio” scorpion motif. Look closely and you can see that the scorpion’s body includes many details from Xbox One X, including the thumb sticks, d-pad, and ABXY buttons.

Starting today, Forza Motorsport 7 owners can download the free Xbox One X Raptor from their Forza Motorsport 7 Message Center, as well as download a Ford F-150 Raptor Xbox One X Edition Windows 10 Theme set in the Microsoft Store. In addition, we’ve got a new Rivals event available today in the Featured Event channel, starring the Raptor. Look for the “Delivering the Sting” event and set your best time on the leaderboard. Can you tame the power of the Xbox One X Raptor? Read more over at Xbox Wire!
