Microsoft Confirms Special Day One Game Packages for Xbox One
Posted by Ken Barnes
Forza, Dead Rising and Ryse get bonus content.
Preordering one of the games will nab you the Day One Edition, and the Day One version will also be downloadable via Xbox Live for the first two weeks after the game launches. That means you could be downloading it on Day Fourteen, but there you go.
Forza Motorsport 5 will also be available in the previously-announced Limited Edition, which features even more content, and a special pack.
The Day One Edition of Forza 5 will include a special three-car pack, including the 2010 Audi TT RS Coupe, the 2013 Ford Focus ST, and the 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera.
Dead Rising 3 will come with the "Tribute Pack", which includes bonus content and attribute perks, as well as the classic Frank West outfit and Frank's "Zombie Slugger" weapon. Also, Chuck Greene's outfit and "Paddle Saw" weapon are included.
Ryse: Son of Rome gets an exclusive "Gladiator Mode" co-op multiplayer map, and an exclusive sword. If you own the Day One edition, you can invite non-Day One edition owners to join you on the map, which is kind of a nice touch.
The Day One Edition versions also get slightly different cover art, which you can check out below.
