Forza Motorsport 7 Changes VIP Membership Rewards After Backlash

For Forza Motorsport 7, Turn 10 removed the credits bonus altogether, replacing it with 5 consumable loot crate mod cards that offered a 50% credit boost over 5 races.

Introducing new systems that cleverly work microtransactions into games without affecting the core gameplay is something myself and many others have and continue to tolerate, but this is not what Forza 7 is doing. Despite all the minor fixes, Turn 10 will also fix the benchmark option and now should output the correct minimum FPS. That did not go over well, particularly given the language used in the original Forza Motorsport 7 listing on the Microsoft Store, which noted (via Windows Central) "additional benefits including 100% CR bonus Mods, VIP Driver Gear, and more".

When you're zipping around the tracks in Forza Motorsport 7, it can be hard to truly take in the breathtaking details in the visuals, especially if you're using the cockpit view. "As soon as we heard from our community that there was confusion about the VIP description in the Windows Store, we immediately updated it", the studio said in a statement.

Besides addressing the VIP controversy, Turn 10's studio head Alan Hartman also talked briefly about PC performance. As head of the studio, I apologize for any confusion or frustration our players may have experienced. Be respectful, but you can't expect to see changes unless you voice your concerns.

Now, Turn 10 says it will return to a system that will work just as it did in Forza Motorsport 6, "offering a 2X base credit bonus after every race". The homologation system virtually eliminates player choice in auto selection over the course of the career mode and the Collection Tier system ensures that players must buy many unwanted cars in order to unlock the chance to buy the cars they actually want. We've enjoyed seeing feedback from fans who are praising how the game plays on their personal PCs.

A new update for "Forza Motorsport 7" has been released to address the issues that the game has with both the Xbox One and PC versions. And that, "the team is working around the clock to report, investigate, and resolve these issues as quickly as possible". They are making the quality of PC performance a 'top priority'.
