Loot boxes of any kind have been taboo for gamers ever since lots of games wanted to add them in 2017. Well it looks like loot boxes are slowly dying out because Forza Motorsport 7 and Forza Horizon 4 are getting rid of them for good.
Forza Motorsport 7 is a great game, but its release last year was kind of ruined by the number of loot boxes that you had to unlock in the game. Developer Turn 10 have announced on its blog that loot boxes will soon be removed altogether in the game.
They posted the following: “One major area of discussion for the team has been prize crates. While we’ve never charged money for prize crates in Forza Motorsport 7, their presence in the game has continued to be a source of controversy. The overwhelming feedback has been that this system feels out of place in the game. After careful consideration, we have decided to completely remove prize crates from Forza Motorsport 7. Similarly, paid tokens – which were a part of previous Forza games – will not be coming to Forza Motorsport 7 or Forza Horizon 4.”
This is the third AAA video game that has removed lootboxes following in the footsteps of Middle-earth: Shadow of War and Star Wars Battlefront 2. Forza Horizon 4 will not have them so that game should be awesome at launch.
