Facing an influx of criticism over changes to the VIP pass bonuses in Forza Motorsport 7, developer Turn 10 Studios has made a decision to walk things back.

Held at the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles over the weekend, the event drew the likes of Blue The Great, Jermaine Junior Jones, Adam Waheed, Derek Luh and Jordana Brewster.

The credit bonus change will come at a later date and the rest will be released to players today.

Check out a photo recap above.

Forza 7 VIPs will be able to download all these cars from the in-game message center and add them to their vehicle collection. It's a win-win, and it was loved by Forza fans. Naturally, you need to spend credits to get these mods, and it's not a guarantee either, since they're only found in blind loot boxes. Unfortunately, players who turn off assists no longer see their credit payouts boosted, but drivatar difficulty can be turned up to sharply increase credit rewards.

Because everything in Forza games is bought with credits, you always had a clear progression path towards getting your favourite cars. The mod system also returns from Forza Motorsport 6, though it has been changed quite dramatically. Right: Forza 7 where none of that is there. The homologation system virtually eliminates player choice in auto selection over the course of the career mode and the Collection Tier system ensures that players must buy many unwanted cars in order to unlock the chance to buy the cars they actually want. Do you think this is enough to correct the VIP Pass Saga?

If your profile level is only up to the second tier, you won't be able to buy a tier 4 auto even if you can afford it!

One of the more divisive aspects of Forza Motorsport 7 has been its play for microtransactions via race-altering mods and the effect it has had on the VIP membership benefits - it's something we were concerned about in our review.

It makes me worry a lot about the future of the series, and Microsoft games in general. There are some changes that may alienate legacy Forza Motorsport players, but prize crates aside they've all been made with good intentions and mostly pay off.

Forza Motorsport 7 is available on Xbox One anc PC starting October 3, 2017 as Standard Edition ($59.99, £49.99, €69.99), Deluxe Edition ($79.99, £69.99, €89.99, digital only), or start three days early when you get the Ultimate Edition ($99.99, £89.99, €109.99).
