Forza Horizon 4 Won't Include Paid Tokens, Loot Boxes Being Removed from Forza Motorsport 7

Turn 10 has good news for racing fans who aren't keen on loot boxes and microtransactions.

Turn 10 has announced some changes to past and future Forza titles. Loot boxes are being removed from Forza Motorsport 7, while the microtransaction currency of 'Tokens' are not coming to October's Forza Horizon 4 (developed by Playground Games).

In a recent blog post, Turn 10 detailed all the changes in the pipeline. It's good news for those of you who didn't like prize crates.

"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," states Turn 10. "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. Similarly, paid tokens – which were a part of previous Forza games – will not be coming to Forza Motorsport 7 or Forza Horizon 4."

Removing prize crates doesn't sound easy, so it's going to take the dev team some time to do, with the whole process set to be completed in the winter. Work is already being done, however, and changes can already be seen in the game.

"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," reads the blog post. "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."

Forza Horizon 4 is all set to launch in October later this year, and features a unique system where players can earn in-game rewards by streaming through Mixer. For everything you need to know about Turn 10's next racing game, head over to our Forza Horizon 4 everything we know guide.
