Upcoming Forza 5 Update to Reduce Car Prices

Forza Motorsport 5 developer Turn 10 is preparing a new free update for the game that will reduce the cost of in-game vehicles.

The update, which is due to release next week, will cut the price of cars by as much as 45 percent and also add Drag Racing and Tag multiplayer modes, according to IGN. The rate at which players earn in-game credits has also been doubled.

Turn 10 estimates that following the update players will be able to earn an exotic car in one-fifth of the time it took them in Forza Motorsport 4. “We based our economy largely on Forza Motorsport 4 data,” creative director Dan Greenawalt told IGN. “The earn rate [in Forza 5] should have been the same.”

Drag Racing will support up to 16 players in a single lobby, partaking in either one-on-one duels, or eight cars on the same strip at a time. Three Tag modes will also be added with the update. “Keep the It” sees one player start the match as “it,” with the aim being to keep “it” status for as long as possible. If another car comes into contact with you, they will take the status. The player who holds it the longest wins.

“Tag Virus” starts with one player as “it,” this player must then come into contact with other racers to pass the “it” status on. The winner is the last racer without “it” status. The final mode is “Pass the It,” which is similar to “Keep the It,” except now it’s the player with the least amount of time with the “it” that wins.
