Day One Editions of first- and third-party software to include bonus items and skins; will be available for two weeks following Xbox One's launch.

by

Following Microsoft's E3 announcement that it will be bringing a Day One Edition of its Xbox One console to market, complete with limited edition controller and bonus achievement, the company has today unveiled plans for a similar approach to its first- and third-party launch software.

Day One Editions of Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome, and Dead Rising 3 will be separate versions of the games, and will be available both as digital downloads and physical versions during the first two weeks of the Xbox One's launch.

Forza Motorsport 5's Day One Car Pack includes three bonus vehicles: The 2010 Audi TT RS Coupe, Ford's current model Focus ST, and the 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera. Each will come complete with launch-day livery and a custom tuning package.

Crytek-developed action game Ryse: Son of Rome will bundle a bonus cooperative Gladiator Mode multiplayer map and a bonus sword weapon. Players who own the Day One Edition will be able to invite those without the content to play together.

Customers who pick up Dead Rising 3 will be given access to classic Frank West and Chuck Greene outfits, and Zombie Slugger and Paddle Saw combo weapons. Also included are improved melee and vehicle damage perks, improved weapon durability, and tougher survivors.

The Xbox One launches in November, potentially on November 8, for $499/€499/£429/A$599.

Don't listen to what people have to say between Forza or GT. Play demos of each and get the feel of what you like. One will say Forza is better than GT and another will say GT is better than Forza.

in video, the reflections and lighting on the car's hood are ultra realistic!

The shadow effect in the video was pretty cool.

I was more so saying it doesn't 100% exist due to the defamation act. But either way, poor communication on my part. :)

I don't like the idea of a day one achievement. I love the system they have now with achievements where every single one is attainable by everyone. If they start doing bonus achievements or packing these one day attainable achievements then I for one will lose interest.

Mark, incorrect, Fredom of Speech 100% exists...it always has. What idiots don't realize is their are social ramifications for what they say. Social conciousness (spelling?) I can say all I want that I'm for the global terrorism, but by saying so I HAVE to be willing to accept how others will judge me.

Well, Freedom of Speech doesn't 100% exist and never will. The law in itself only believes in Freedom of Speech to an extent. I think Spike's mention of Syria was over the top though, considering the situation that is currently ongoing.

I'm confused. DAY ONE editions available for TWO WEEKS after release?

Sense. This does not make it.

Forza and GT will be why I will buy both systems. Anyone know if the G25 wheel will work with the new systems?

Smh. Spike's first comment was right. And Nathan, you obviously got butthurt by it. Guess you're against freedom of speech?

"PC Master Race"?! Come on man. All it means is you've got a shitload of money to spend on a PC. Unless you're a heavy gamer, a £1000 pc is obviously an inferior choice to a £120 console. I'm a PC gamer myself, but at least I'm not so caught up my own ass as to forget that your choice of gaming system is entirely relative to your situation.

Day One Editions of games sounds like a pretty good idea to me, rewarding those who adopt the system early on. Sony isn't really doing anything like this for Killzone Shadowfall, Knack or DriveClub.

I can't wait for my LE Forza 5. Why wife bought me a 360 as a gift and the first game I bought was Forza 2.  And after being let down badly by GT4 my friend let me borrow Forza for GT4 and he had to fight me to get it back.

A super-gaming-PC or an Xbox One... Being as I'm a Forza freak, this situation just plain sucks. I'll probably just endup pre-ordering the game and get the actual console in a year or two when it's improved.

Nor do I want a console because I am a part of the PC Master Race. You console losers are inferior.

@Brendon, So let me get this straight. Say your girlfriend goes out and spend 600-700 dollars on you, thinking you will love the gift she brought for you ... you're just going to piss on it? People like you don't deserve consoles. People like you are what is wrong with the gaming industry today.

Forza 5 is a gorgeous game, Turn 10 does it again x) This game all on it's own is what's making me struggle of buying the console. But I'm not going to until Microsoft gets rid of one more annoyance about their console.

@Umar Nexus I've considered forza to be the better racer for years now. Before forza, GT was the be all end all when it came to racing, but IMO Forza holds that crown now. Its just a more complete package.

@Xhulio Mema I have and it is trash...along with the ps3.5...enjoy all those indie titles and p2p hosting in 2013...on that lagstation network

I'll enjoy my dedicated servers on the best online service for consoles (xbox live) along with the higher quality exclusives (quantum break, dead rising 3, halo 5, sunset overdrive, forza 5, titanfall, etc.)

@ALLoY1717 don't be mad because you were on the fence and couldn't pull the trigger. Hey, if you wasted time thinking about siding with the sneaky ones, that's your bad. Shouldn't have thought about buying a fail ass PS4.

@barleybosh @ALLoY1717 Troll much!  Alloy said nothing in his post about a PS4.  Sounds like he's got a good head on his shoulders, waiting to see which console he would like best and to let all the kinks and bugs get ironed out.  Unlike you, who preorders based entirely on blind fanboyism.  Idiot....
