Forza 4 fueling preorders
Prepurchase incentives for Microsoft, Turn 10's Kinect-enabled racer includes cars; Collector's Edition, Ship Bonus, Forza 3 perks confirmed.
Microsoft has said little of Turn 10's Forza Motorsport 4 beyond its initial announcement and presentation at the 2010 Electronic Entertainment Expo, indicating only that it will incorporate Kinect functionality when it arrives for the Xbox 360 this fall. Taking promotion from 0 to 60, Microsoft today announced a Collector's Edition, as well as a range of preorder incentives, to draw gamers to Forza 4's track on race day.
Beyond confirming that a Forza 4 Collector's Edition exists, Microsoft offered no details on how much it will cost or what gamers can expect to find within it. Microsoft expects to offer more details on the limited-run package soon. Expect more information on Forza 4 at next month's E3, where Microsoft will hold its annual press conference on June 6.
The publisher did have information to share on the game's preorder incentives, which will take the form of retailer-specific car download vouchers. Those who pick up the game through Amazon.com will get the Subaru Impreza WRX STI, while Best Buy preorderers gain access to the BMW 1 Series M Coupe. GameStop has the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde, Wal-Mart is offering the MINI John Cooper Works Clubman, and Target buyers will get the Honda CR-Z EX.
Microsoft will also be motivating gamers to show up at retailers early to get their copy of Forza 4 with the limited-quantity "Ship Bonus" car pack. This offer, which is limited to first-run Forza 4 game discs, includes the Ford Mustang GT Coupe 1965, Koenigsegg Agera 2011, Lexus SC300 1997, RUF RGT-8 2011, and Tesla Roadster Sport 2011.
Lastly, Microsoft offered good news for those who lost themselves to Forza 3. The publisher said that gift cars will be doled out based on player level and garaged cars in Forza 3, and players will also be able to import liveries from that game into Forza 4.
