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.
