Forza Horizon 2, Microsoft's upcoming 1080p open-world racing game for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, will not have microtransactions, at least not at launch. Creative director Ralph Fulton said in a new interview that "tokens," the in-game currency used in past games to unlock cars by spending real-world money, will not be available in the game out of the gate.
"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," Fulton told Digital Spy. "That's incredibly important to us. For that reason, we will launch in September without tokens."
Fulton went on to say that Forza Horizon 2's unlock system has been intentionally designed so that players can unlock the game's 200+ collection of cars quickly. Though you won't be able to pay for premium cars with real-world money (at least not right away), Forza Horizon 2 will offer up a wheel-of-fortune-style minigame that will let you score a new car if you're lucky.
