Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox 360 will be “inspired by the same ideas” as the Xbox One version but will not be the same game.
“It’s based in the same world, it’s based on the same themes,” explained Playground Games creative director, Ralph Fulton, in an interview with Digital Spy. “Rather than thinking of them as the same game on different platforms, they are different games inspired by the same ideas.”
“There are things we are doing in Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox One that honestly couldn’t be done on any other console,” he added, referring in part to the weather system and Drivatars.
It has also been revealed that, unlike Driveclub, the game will ship without any micro transactions.
“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,” said Fulton. “That’s incredibly important to us. For that reason, we will launch in September without tokens.”
Note that although the game will launch without micro transactions, Microsoft may choose to implement them at a later date.
