Paid boosters have no place in Forza Horizon 2

Forza Horizon 2 will launch on 30 September on Xbox One and 360 without paid microtransaction boosters.


It comes after Forza Motorsport 5’s paid boosters got a lot of gamers upset. I posted a heated blog on the matter last year. I wasn’t happy either.

Speaking with DigitalSpy, Playground Games’ Ralph Fulton revealed that the new racer won’t replicate Turn10’s payment options.

“The approach we’ve taken is that we’ve designed our game at Playground Games from the ground up to be fair, to be fun, to be rewarding,” he explained. “That’s incredibly important to us. For that reason, we will launch in September without tokens.

“We’ve got an amazing list of 200 plus cars, and we want you to explore it. We want to enable you, at very regular intervals, to be able to change your car, pick a new one from the list. If that doesn’t work out, you’re able to buy a new one really quickly.”

So, does this make you happy? Let us know below.
