The developer of Forza Motorsport 5 game - Turn 10 Studio - has announced that next week it is going to release the game’s update that will reduce the prices of many cars, as well as add some modes.
If you play (or played) Forza 5, then you know that this instalment in the genre of racing simulator, as the previous one, has a microtransaction system, which allows you to buy the cars or tune them for the real money. But you also probably know that many game’s fans are indignant at microtransactions and they even accuse the project’s publisher - Microsoft - to be the one who has implemented them. And since such a negative situation affects on the number of sold game’s copies and the fans of the simulator, the developers have decided to look for a solution of the problem.
Thus, Turn 10 creative director - Dan Greenwalt - has told that the idea of introducing the micropayment system in Forza 5 completely belongs to the developers, and therefore we shouldn’t blame Microsoft for any evil intentions. He has also announced the release of new Forza Motorsport 5 update, which will significantly reduce the price of cars (45% on average), will balance the racer’s economy, and will also introduce new multiplayer modes - Drag Racing and Tag. Drag Racing will allow up to 16 racers to participate in one race, and the second mode will require you to perform certain goals - to avoid touching other cars or to maintain a certain status in the race.
