Forza Horizon 2 Will Not Feature Microtransactions at Launch

By   /   Jun 16, 2014

Playground Games has announced that it won’t feature micro-transactions in the latest installment of its upcoming racer franchise, Forza Horizon 2.

In an interview with Digital Spy, the game’s Creative Director Ralph Fulton stated that real-time currency used to buy new cars will not make it to Forza Horizon 2. All of this is done in an effort to make the game more rewarding, fun, and balanced for everyone.

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. That’s incredibly important to us. For that reason, we will launch in September without tokens.

Featuring a wide array of over 200 automobiles, the game will encourage you to explore and try out different cars at your disposal. To make these cars more accessible, lottery style lucky dip will be making a comeback in the upcoming iteration.

As seen in the original Forza Horizon’s multiplayer mode, this lucky dip will reward players every time they will level up. These rewards may include cash or vehicles.

Fulton has confirmed that players might be able to get a Bugatti Veyron in the first 30 minutes of the gameplay, if they are fortunate enough.

Every time you level up we’ve got this game of chance, and for the lucky guys, they could be a getting a Bugatti Veyron after playing the game for 30 minutes.

Featuring Day/Night cycles and Forza Motorsport 5’s popular Drivatar aspect, Forza Horizon 2 is slated to launch across Xbox One and Xbox 360 on Sept. 30, 2014.
