The highest profile Xbox One launch title is Forza Motorsport 5, and today we have learned the specific details surrounding the previously announced Day One edition and the newly announced limited edition.
The Forza Motorsport 5 Xbox One Day One edition is marked by a Day One banner running across its package and is priced at $59.99, the same price as the standard non-Day One edition version of the game. Microsoft is calling this package “commemorative” in celebration of the Xbox One launch, and it matches the Xbox One Day One edition console that has similar Day One branding on its controller.
Everyone who purchases the Forza Motorsport 5 Xbox One Day One Edition will gain access to the Day One Car Pack. This car pack features three rides, each with Day One-themed livery and a custom tuning package that Turn 10 created. Included in this pack are these cars:
2010 Audi TT RS Coupe – Stuffed stem to stern with modern tech, the TT RS is the first TT model to carry Audi’s famed RS badge – a distinction that’s earned on the track from the moment you step on the gas. 2013 Ford Focus ST – Debuting with the same 250-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine from the much larger Ford Explorer SUV, the new Ford Focus ST packs a serious punch. 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera – Like great sculpture, the Superleggera’s chiseled form is carefully considered for maximum impact. That’s where the similarities end, however, because this work of art is best appreciated when it’s moving at top speed.
Pre-order the Forza Motorsport 5 Xbox One Day One Edition at Amazon.com.
The Forza Motorsport 5 Limited Edition sells for $79.99 and has a lot more under the hood. In addition to including the Day One edition car pack, it will come housed in a steelbook case, include a decal sheet, and include $9.99 worth of car tokens to be used in the game.
Additional cars will be available exclusievly to Limited Edition owners. The first is the Limited Editon car pack and includes these cars:
2011 Audi RS 3 Sportback – More than a mere grocery-getter, the RS 3 Sportback is a marriage of performance and practicality. The result is a 340-horsepower grin-generator that will paste your head to the back of the seat and not crack a single egg in the process. 2012 Aston Martin Vanquish – As comfortable on the track as it is on cozy country lanes, the Aston Martin Vanquish is equal parts refined style and snarling, road-taming grit. 2013 Ford M Shelby Mustang GT500 – While the GT500’s aggressive lines suggest raw power and straight-line speed to spare, the sound of that big 5.8-liter V8 simply screams, “Get out of the way!” 2013 McLaren P1 – The successor to McLaren’s legendary F1, the McLaren P1 is an automotive highlight reel: technological innovation, gorgeous contours, and pure, unapologetic performance. Epic, legendary, astounding – words tend to fail when describing this car’s limitless potential. 2013 SRT Viper GTS – The return of the Viper has been celebrated by automotive fans worldwide. With an 8.4-liter V10 that’s capable of pushing the GTS to a top speed north of 200 mph, the 2013 Viper GTS has once again firmly entrenched its spot near the top of the American Muscle hierarchy.
Owners of the Limited Edition game also are granted VIP Membership, which entitles them to 2x player reward acceleration, access to exclusive multiplayer events, an exclusive in-game player card badge, and unannounced in-game gifts from the “Forza” community team. Also included is the VIP car pack with these rides:
1965 Shelby Cobra 427 S/C – Marketed as “the fastest streetcar in the world,” the 427 S/C is the most desirable of all the Shelby Cobra variants. Out of the 100 that were planned only 53 were built. They are nothing less than a purpose-built race car converted at the last minute for street use. 1987 RUF CTR Yellowbird – Dubbed the “Yellowbird” by journalists during a test drive event, the 1987 RUF CTR Yellowbird earns its name thanks to the canary-like chirping of its twin turbo blow-off valve. Just 29 of these cherished classics were built. 1991 Mazda #55 787B – One of the most beloved race cars of all time, the 787B holds the distinction as being Japan’s only winner of a 24 Hours of Le Mans race. Featuring a brash green and orange livery and an unmistakable screaming Wankel rotary engine, the 787B continues to inspire more than 20 years after its debut. 2011 Ford F150 SVT Raptor – Say hello to your rear view mirror’s worst nightmare. The Raptor is essentially a factory-built pre-runner race truck with suspension to match its under-the-hood muscle. Slide it, jump it, whatever you like – it just begs for more. 2011 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport – Even among hypercars, the Veyron Super Sport stands alone. After all, this is the car that currently holds the Guinness record for “World’s Fastest Car” at speeds approaching 270 mph.
