Forza Horizon 2 will launch without "tokens" according to a new report from Digital Spy, the virtual microtransaction currency the Forza franchise uses to acquire cars.

Playground Games' Ralph Fulton said the game won't feature tokens — which can be bought in Forza Motorsport 5 for real money — at launch because developers have designed the game "to be fair, to be fun, to be rewarding."

"That's incredibly important to us," he added. "For that reason, we will launch in September without tokens."

Forza Horizon 2's unlock system, Fulton said, is designed to get drivers trying out new cars very quickly, and premium vehicles are prizes in a wheel-of-fortune type minigame featured in the multiplayer of the original Forza Horizon. Each time a driver levels up he earns a spin on the wheel.

Forza Horizon 2 will be launching on September 30th for Xbox One and Xbox 360. Check out the E3 2014 gameplay trailer below.

Wow, they are listening to us folk who didn't buy the XBone at launch because of this s*** in Forza 5! Seriously, I was going to get one just for Forza 5 but as soon as I heard about this I was turned off completely.

Now to wait for Forza 6...

Yea I play Xbox One and still won't play Forza on it because of this. It's nice that we have a Bathurst track and all and Forza is a great game but the micro transactions need to be toned down.
