Forza Horizon 2 will launch with no micro-transactions

Playground Games has confirmed that Forza Horizon 2 will not launch with pesky micro-transactions.

Speaking with DigitalSpy, the studio’s Ralph Fulton confirmed that Horizon 2 will not feature the same token system used in Forza Motorsport 5.

“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 said.

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

“We’ve got an amazing list of 200 plus cars, and we want you to explore it. We want to enable you, at very regular intervals, to be able to change your car, pick a new one from the list. If that doesn’t work out, you’re able to buy a new one really quickly.”

The original Horizon also launched without micro-transactions.
