Forza Motorsport Update 6 Makes Changes to Car Progression - News

Publisher Xbox Game Studios and developer Turn 10 Studios announced changes will be made to Car Progression in Forza Motorsport based on player feedback in update 6, which is expected to release in March.

There are two changes that will be made to Car Progression. The first is that all car parts for every car will be unlocked at Car Level 1 and the second is that Car Points will be acquirable using in-game Crefits.

"Firstly, we will remove the locked part mechanic so all car parts can be accessed at Car Level 1 for every car in the game," said Turn 10 Studios. "Once a car is added to your car collection, you can install upgrades to it in any order that you wish. Whether it's engine swaps, race tires, aspiration changes, body kits or any other part available for your vehicle, you will have the freedom to build cars your way.

"Secondly, in addition to earning Car Points through levelling up the car, you will be able to use in-game Credits to acquire Car Points. This means you can begin to immediately install upgrades to your car if you have sufficient Credits or if you would rather save your Credits, you can still earn car parts through car leveling as before.

"We’re testing a ratio of 4,500 Credits for 500 Car Points and based on the feedback we’ve collected, we expect this to provide a healthy balance. That means if you’re upgrading the 2021 Volkswagen Golf R with all available parts at Level 1, for example, it will cost 89,775 Credits. In the case of the 2021 BMW M4 Competition Coupé, for all parts it amounts to 125,325 Credits, or for the 1969 Nissan Fairlady Z 432, it totals to 133,875 Credits.

"Brand discounts will remain as they currently are. When a car reaches the maximum Car Level 50, a Showroom discount of 5% is applied to future cars you purchase from that same manufacturer. If you get 5 cars from the same manufacturer to Car Level 50, the loyalty discount stacks to 25%. The time needed on-track to reach Car Level 50 will remain between 2 and 3 hours."

Forza Motorsport is available now for the Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Xbox Game Pass.

Fair changes. It was a fair idea, same with the position selector for races.

It's good to see them still updating and making changes, the content updates are ok not exciting but I haven't played the game I'm just not interest in this entry. That and the online requirement annoys me too.

It's just not WRC 2023 car builder or Ride 4 having Forza Motorsport 1 & 2's region system improved upon, take notes Turn 10 a dev improved your old mechanic idea. Mechanics sell me on a game and Forza Motorsport just hasn't even besides the selective marketing didn't help.

To me those are just more exciting ideas that draw me to those types of racing games. The car builder idea was in Sega GT, for the Dreamcast in 1999. So many other racing games of the 2000s had more interesting ideas.

With the games being flexible to play in progression or 'classes' of cars to use sure (5+ they did that) it's probably fine to play just not exciting to me. 6 made me the most bored moving the showcases out and seeking them more as I found the main races really boring and a slog to get through.

5 & 7 had better balanced the other event types really well in the championship mix of event types format or the select from any in that tour you want format not showcases and main races.

It's good to see them still updating and making changes, the content updates are ok not exciting but I haven't played the game I'm just not interest in this entry. That and the online requirement annoys me too.

I give Turn 10 credit for trying something new, but majority of players prefer the tried and true freedom of leveling up. Hopefully this game picks up steam again and sees a population boost because it's been consistently getting new content and updates.

Absurdly slow reaction to the awful progression system. And long after the vast majority of players have lost interest.
What did Xbox do to help, or make sure that so many problems were quickly resolved ? Nothing again ? Actually this game should have been released a minimum of 6 months later than it should have, but Xbox either forced it out, or didn’t care that this game is obviously unfinished.
It’s a shambles over at Xbox
