Give them credit where it's due. They're u-turning (hairpin turning? laugh ) back to the standards of Forza 6, which is what people expected before they changed the microsoft store description of the VIP edition.

Props.

Great to see this!
You have to give turn10 some credit(s) facepalm for this

Fan power wins, common sense prevails and I'm sure many VIP pack sales will follow (I'll be one of them)

Doesn't hide the other disappointments in the game, but it's a start

There is none as of yet, there are loads of news outlets saying the game has micro transactions just to get hits to fuel the fire....

Currently ... at the time of writing this ... you do not need to buy any of the Prize Crates and you don't need to have VIP pass to play or to complete the game. There are -- as far as we know -- no cars exclusive to prize crates. You can buy all of the cars and crates if you wish using the in-game earned credits. But, not using mods will mean that you have to race more to earn more credits i.e. lack of mods means that progress is slower.

However, we do know that Tokens will eventually be purchasable using real-world cash if you want to, but you don't have to buy anything more if you don't want to.

I'm glad to see this has changed! I heard a lot of complaints and particularly poor reviews because of this. I saw this coming, and I'm glad Turn 10 really listened and fixed this!

Clearly a troll. Look at his stats, I wouldn't listen to anything he says.

Glad U-Turn 10 did this. I was annoyed by the lack of reward from the VIP, and they certainly know how to placate the crowd. With Project Cars driving around, they need to keep their players happy.

Now if they could throw in a free steering wheel ... that would make me happy.

As for Toyotas showing up at a later date, I doubt it. I hoped the Volkswagons would turn up in Horizon 3 - especially the 60's love bus - but they didn't. It seems Toyota wants to keep their street cars away from the race tracks.
