Turn 10 have listened to the complaints of fans and will now allow you to have DLC cars instantly in Forza Motorsport 5.
Before if you redeemed DLC for Forza Motorsport 5, the cars would appear in the game store only. You still had to earn them by getting in-game currency by racing or paying your own money. Either way, it was s stupid system.
As of today, players who have purchased DLC cars in Forza Motorsport 5 can add those cars to their Forza 5 garage immediately, at no additional in-game cost. And, moving forward, when you buy a Season Pass, a DLC car pack, or a single DLC car, you will be granted the one-time free addition of each car to your Forza 5 garage, without needing to purchase them with in-game credits or tokens. This goes for all current Forza Motorsport 5 DLC (including cars in previous DLC car packs) and it will be the case for all future Forza 5 DLC car packs. In addition, as requested by our fans, this most recent content update makes all of the initial 200 cars that launched with Forza 5 available as rental cars.
This is a good thing and hopefully this mean more cars will be added to Forza Motorsport 6 without locking cars behind a pay wall…
