Forza Motorsport 7 removing prize crates

The loot box system will be gone by end of the year, paid tokens no longer planned

Posted on

Developer Turn10 has announced that they will be removing the prize crate system from Forza Motorsport 7.

In a blog post, the team 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. 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."

The developers have 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.

The developers also announced that paid tokens will not be coming to Forza Motorsport 7 or Forza Horizon 4. These allowed fans to buy them with real currency and exchange for cars.

Forza 7 released last year, and the prize crates were definately one of the downsides of the racing game, as mentioned in our Forza Motorsport 7 Review.
