Turn10 and Playground Games have announced that they will completely remove price crates from Forza Motorsport 7. This decision was made due to the overwhelming feedback regarding them, and the teams claimed that it will be completed in the winter timeframe.
As Alan Hartman said:
“One major area of discussion for the team has been prize crates. While we’ve never charged money for prize crates in Forza Motorsport 7, their presence in the game has continued to be a source of controversy. The overwhelming feedback has been that this system feels out of place in the game. After careful consideration, we have decided to completely remove prize crates from Forza Motorsport 7.”
What’s also cool here is that paid tokens – which were a part of previous Forza games – will not be coming to Forza Motorsport 7 or in the upcoming Forza Horizon 4.
“Due to the complexity of removing prize crates from the game – while keeping access to Driver Gear, Mods and Badges – we expect that this process will be completed in the winter timeframe. Starting this month we’ve already taken steps towards that goal, first by unlocking more than 100 previously locked “exclusive” cars and, second, by completely removing cars from the prize crates in the game. The current lineup of prize crates offer no competitive advantage and only offer Driver Gear suits, Mods and badges, and these crates will remain in place until crates are removed entirely.”
