Forza Motorsport 7 patch adds permanent credits boost for VIPs

Well, Forza Motorsport 7 changed that. It only gave you a few limited-use VIP cards which offered double credits. Many gamers, especially those who purchased the Ultimate Edition, were furious at the decision as many thought that it was unfair and made VIP status useless.

A few weeks ago, Turn 10 Studios promised to address this and on October 27, 2017, they introduced a patch which allots a double credits bonus after every race for Forza Motorsport 7 VIPs. In addition to fixing the VIP perks, the update addresses an issue where VIP cars and Driver Gear wasn't available online.

It's great to see that Turn 10 Studios listened to the community and fixed the VIP Pass. Having to spend additional hard-earned cash on a bunch of cards which run out just as fast as you get them is arguably unfair. Hopefully this won't happen in the future.

Forza Motorsport 7 is the ultimate automotive experience and is the best-selling racing franchise on any platform this generation. The game runs at 1080p 60 FPS on Xbox One and native 4K 60 FPS on Xbox One X. The focus of the title is to collect and race more than 700 cars. There are countless tracks and other challenges to master as well. Be sure to check out the game if you love simulators.

  • I will now give the game 5 stars as promised.
  • Microsoft can keep this microtransaction riddled piece of crap.  
  • I am 100% sure you have not played this game.. No where in forza can you exchange money for credits currently, and the rate at which you earn money in the game is high making this a non issue just game journalist noneses. 
  • No intention in purchasing games that try pushing this Mico transaction rubbish, unfortunately most new games are heading this way so I have been gaming a lot less lately. Wife is happy though. 😄
  • I'm not 100% sure but I haven't found a way to buy the loot boxes with real money, only the in game credits.
  • Ditto... There are no micro transactions, you don't need to buy crates with credits, and when you do, you generally get more back than what you paid...
  • Yay!
