Game: Forza Motorsport 6

Platform: PC, XBox One

Publisher: Microsoft Studios

Release Date: 15/09/2015

Forza Motorsport 6 is now the latest Forza game to feature the franchise's long-running 'Tokens' microtransaction system.

Upon installing the update that activates the system, players will be able to spend real money on Tokens, which can be used in turn to acquire cars, upgrade parts and Mod cards in Forza Motorsport 6.

However, players do have the option to toggle the Tokens prompts off via the HUD options menu, though Tokens prices for cars, upgrades and Mod card packs will still be shown alongside their cost in Credits.

At time of writing, one Token is the equivalent of 500 in-game Credits – meaning the most expensive car in the game (the Ferrari 250 GTO, at 2,000,000 Credits) will cost you 4,000 Tokens in Forza Motorsport 6.

The activation of Tokens in Forza Motorsport 6 isn't entirely unexpected. While developer Turn 10 Studios confirmed earlier this year that microtransactions wouldn't be in the game "at launch", it wasn't said that Tokens would be permanently removed.

Forza Motorsport 6 also isn't the first Forza game to have Tokens added after launch – Tokens were brought to Forza Horizon 2 earlier this year, at the same time the title's Storm Island expansion was released.

Prices for Forza Motorsport 6's Tokens start at £2.29 for a pack of 325, going all the way up to £64,99 for a pack of 20,000 Tokens
