One of the fun parts of the Forza Horizon series is the spin-to-win wheel that pops up each time you 'level-up', where you get in-game cash or a free car - sometimes a coveted Forza Edition. With the inclusion of loot boxes in Forza Motorsport 7, or 'prize crates', many were unhappy with this direction for rewarding players. Well, Turn 10 is removing them from the game - alongside confirming that they won't appear in Forza Horizon 4.

This comes via a statement posted on as part of a Forza Summer Update, which notes,
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.

Due to the complexity of removing prize crates from the game – while keeping access to Driver Gear, Mods and Badges – we expect that this process will be completed in the winter timeframe. Starting this month we’ve already taken steps towards that goal, first by unlocking more than 100 previously locked “exclusive” cars and, second, by completely removing cars from the prize crates in the game. The current lineup of prize crates offer no competitive advantage and only offer Driver Gear suits, Mods and badges, and these crates will remain in place until crates are removed entirely.

This news is certainly welcome and comes alongside an industry-wide backlash towards the concept of random loot box rewards where prizes can be anything from trash to game altering items. Plus, great news for Forza Horizon 4 because it would have been disappointing to say the least to lose the prize wheel.
