Forza Horizon 2 creative director Ralph Fulton told Digital Spy that it would eschew the series' microtransaction currency, tokens. "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," Fulton said. "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."
Thanks to the fruit machine style Horizon Wheel Spin you can win things like cash or cars as well. "Every time you level up we've got this game of chance, and for the lucky guys, they could be a getting a Bugatti Veyron after playing the game for 30 minutes." Reminds me of Melee's slot machine, which I miss.
More of this kind of thing. Forza Playground Games!
