With the rise of so-called “exclusive reward cars” for Forza Motorsport, what worries me is that they’re not available as rental cars in Free Play, and that their respective tours and even the showcase event will eventually expire, which could potentially lead to fears of the “come and go” mechanic seen in the Festival Playlist of the Horizon games, where if you miss out on a particular season, it will take a while before that car can be obtained again.
And since Forza Motorsport has no Auction House, that would mean there would be absolutely no way to get them if you ever miss out on them (it’s also pointless in Horizon as people take advantage of the Auction House for otherwise predatory means of scalping cars).
Another is that if you sell or remove these cars from your garage, you won’t be able to get them again.
Given this is a live service game, with free cars coming monthly, I started worrying about this when I didn’t see such cars available to purchase and to use as rental cars in Free Play, and a Youtuber once told me that even if you get them as a reward for completing their respective tours/events, they still won’t be available as a rental car.
List of exclusive cars
2020 Acura #6 ARX-05 DPi
2020 Audi R8 V10 performance
2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
2015 Ferrari 488 GTB
2017 Ford GT
2011 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento
2010 Lexus LFA
1995 Porsche 911 GT2
Here are three solutions to ensure all players don’t miss out on these cars:
Have the cars available in the car dealer and as a rental car in Free Play in advance as soon as players unlock them.
Going back from suggestion number 1, once their featured tours and showcase event expires, make the cars available to everyone in both the car dealer and Free Play, and add the tour to the base Builders Cup experience.
Make them available right away from the get-go on the car dealer and Free Play, only having them as an easy and free reward once the events have been completed.
That way, for completing these tours, at least you get a free car, but for those who can’t, and willingly won’t, the car(s) will be available for you to buy and/or rent.
Situations may happen to players, with common examples being work-life balance, and occasionally being away from home, where there is no access to the game, and with that, the likelihood of missing out on these cars are very high.
