Is Forza Motorsport Always Online? – Answered

Do you need an internet connection to enjoy this racing game?

Games adopting the idea of an always-online infrastructure is normally a very bad idea. No matter if it’s to deter cheaters or just to keep certain parts of the game functioning as expected, we’ve seen multiple cases in recent months where it just faceplants and doesn’t work as it should. With Forza Motorsport, the ability to jump into a plethora of exotic cars and take the race to the tarmac should be a brilliant and beautiful experience, but do we need to make sure our internet is working as expected if we’re hoping to enjoy this game to its fullest?

Do You Need Internet To Play Forza Motorsport?

Forza Motorsport is truly the head of its class when it comes to the racing action that unfolds before you, especially since you do not need to be connected to the internet if you’ve purchased a copy of the game. There is no always online requirement here to get every ounce of enjoyment out of the game, so you won’t need to fret if your internet goes down while you’re participating in a single-player race.

For those playing on Game Pass, you will need to stay online, however. There are a few ways you can play Game Pass games offline, but the hassle normally isn’t worth the time required to make this work. Since you’re paying for a subscription service, you must stay connected in this sense. However, if you have purchased the game, you can play whenever and however you want. Forza Motorsport is also an Xbox Play Anywhere title, so you can jump into the action on your PC if it’s powerful enough to handle it.

No matter if you’re an amateur roadster or someone looking to push their sim setup to the next level, Forza Motorsport has something for everyone. Before you jump into the myriad of vehicles available, check out our Forza Motorsport section below to get your hands on some helpful tips and tricks to get yourself ready for the next race.
