One of the more divisive aspects of Forza Motorsport 7 has been its play for microtransactions via race-altering mods and the effect it has had on the VIP membership benefits – it’s something we were concerned about in our review. Instead of a blanket boost to the in-game currency that you would earn, VIP would only come with five mods that could be used to boost five races each, which was not made clear in the run up to launch.
Thankfully, Microsoft and Turn 10 have found that this wasn’t going down well with the community and reacted fairly quickly, as detailed in a blog post. They’re working to restore the VIP rewards so that they work exactly as they did in Forza Motorsport 6 with a 2x credit bonus after every race.
In the meantime, all VIP members are getting 1 million credits to spend as they see fit, and four additional Forza Edition cars:
- 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 Forza Edition
- 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Forza Edition
- 2017 Acura NSX Forza Edition
- 2010 Maserati Gran Turismo S Forza Edition
Finally, the letter addresses PC stability and performance, and while there’s a lot of positive things coming from benchmarks with mid-high end PCs getting excellent performance and 4K60 racing well within reach, there have been people reporting stability and performance issues. Turn 10 have already released their first update to the game on PC and will continue to find and fix issues.
