Forza 5 - Microsoft Changes the Economy
Microsoft and Turn 10 have released info on the latest Forza 5 update and within detail about Wheel Improvements and Tag Mode is the big one, the changes to 'the economy'.

According to Microsoft, "This content update includes the first wave of adjustments to the Forza 5 economy, which we initially announced in early December. These adjustments are based on player behavior (sic) within the game, as well as feedback received from the Forza Motorsport 5 community. F

The relevant info begins, "First of all, we are dramatically increasing the rate at which credits are being earned in the game. For example, driver level payouts have more than doubled (from just over 15,000 credits to 35,000 credits)." It continues:

"Players using average difficulty settings will also see approximately a 60 percent increase in credits earned per hour of play -- a number that can dramatically increase by upping the Drivatar difficulty and assist settings used during races. Wherever your skill level lies, however, youíll be earning more credits per hour in Forza Motorsport 5 to spend on the cars that matter most to you.

"In addition to increasing the payout, we have also reduced the price of the best cars in the game. In fact, the cumulative price of all on-disc cars in the game has decreased by 45 percent. To use a specific example, the Ferrari 250 GTO, one of the most expensive cars in Forza Motorsport 5, will cost 2 million credits after the content update, down from 6 million credits when the game launched. By comparison, that same car cost 10 million credits in Forza Motorsport 4.

"By increasing the amount of credits available to players and lowering the prices of cars, itís never been easier to earn the best cars in the game; in fact, thanks to these economy updates, Forza 5 will be able to earn their dream cars in approximately one-fifth the amount of time it took to earn those same cars in Forza 4. Naturally the most exclusive cars in the game will still take some strategy (and some saving) to acquire, but these changes mean that even the fastest cars in the game are now within every Forza 5 playerís reach."

Does this please you?
