UPDATED: What will be included in the Day One Editions of Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome and Dead Rising 3

Today, Turn 10, Crytek and Capcom provided details of the exclusive content and unlocks that will be included in the Day One Editions of Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome and Dead Rising 3.

To commemorate the launch of Xbox One, Day One Editions are special game SKUS that include exclusive content and are available only through retail pre-order while supplies last, or via download on Xbox Live the first two weeks after launch.

Forza Motorsport 5 Day One Car Pack: This three-car pack features amazing cars from Lamborghini, Audi, and Ford; each with a Day One-themed livery and custom tuning package created by the experts at Turn 10:

  • 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 247-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.

Dead Rising 3 Day One Edition: Dead Rising Tribute Pack featuring exclusive game content and bonus attribute perks.

  • Classic Frank West outfit with Frank’s Zombie Slugger weapon, extra gory attacks and a custom skill move. Also includes attribute perks for increased melee damage and tougher survivors.
  • Official Chuck Greene outfit with Paddle Saw combo weapon that cuts through zombie hordes with increased damage and durability. Also includes attribute perks for vehicle and weapon durability.

 

 

Ryse: Son of Rome Day One Edition Exclusive Gladiator Mode Unlockables:
The Day One Edition of Ryse: Son of Rome will give players access to an exclusive Gladiator Mode Co-Op Multiplayer Map and an exclusive Sword add-on. Owners of the Day One Edition will be able to invite friends who own the Standard Edition to join them on the exclusive map.

  • Legionnaire’s Trust Exclusive Sword: From the Brotherhood of Metalworkers high in the Swiss Alps comes this well-crafted, finely hammered blade that includes bonus in-game attributes.
  • Ruins: Placing gladiators among the columns of an abandoned temple, Ruins will pit players against hordes of Barbarians, attacking from around every corner. The arena changes dynamically during gameplay, adding new obstacles and objectives for the player to encounter and overcome.

    Dear Microsoft,
    Please stop this exclusive DLC practice and give the rest of the industry the same advice.

      Why is it wrong to give back to those that buy first at full retail, which in turn helps the developers?

        It isn’t as long as other people can enjoy that content later on for a small fee. You’d still be paying to the developer for the additional content and get your complete game that way.

        Hence the “Day ONE” title, if you want it, buy it early to get the stuff. However, most “exclusive” DLC is made available down the road at some point.

      The point of DLC is to get people to buy the games first hand not a used game. Cliff Blezinsky was right, now that there is no DRM all the games will now come with microtransactions and day one DLC bonuses. Expect to see plenty of F2P games this generation.

      • Generik420

        I think that is just a placeholder date as MS has said the console will come out in November. That’s pretty much the last possible day the console could release and still be in November with the Thanksgiving holiday. I’d imagine it’s going to be early November to compete with Sony.

        Oh of course, I’m waiting as well but with everything going on MS knows they need to release first and with sony taking the middle of the month, the 5th to the 8th seems legit.

        Historically, MS has always launched the systems and big games at the start of Nov so I don’t see them releasing at the end of the month. However, yes, we simply do not know. But there are two things that can happen.

        1. The real date is the 8th, was leaked and MS will announce it earlier than planned or..

        2. We just have to wait for PAX this weekend. either way we will know by the end of the week as they can’t afford to wait any longer imho.

And what about Collector Editions? I want the Forza 4 CE but I don’t want to buy a disc. I don’t like the thought of having to choose between buying the digital copy and getting all the features of owning a digital library, OR buy the disc to get the cool stuff. I WANT BOTH!!

        Thanks…. though of course, if I go all digital, I will want to stay all digital. Now with no manual and forced install of the disc, not sure what I gain from physical since I don’t sell back games. The only benefit will be costs down the line. The physical copies of games will get discounted heavily in months. The digital copies might take YEARS to get the same discount level! In the long run, physical might be cheaper. But I’m running out of room to store games in my house! Hmmm… tough one.

        I don’t buy very many used games, but I do trade the ones I’m totally done with in. If it helps cut the cost abit I’ll do it🙂
