Forza 5 races into US Xbox One bundle, but only for a limited time

When Xbox One was released in Europe, masses rejoiced that Microsoft’s latest console would include a free copy of FIFA 2014 or Forza 5. Meanwhile in the colonies, Xbox One users had no free game included and thus had to drop the value of an Xbox One along with another $60 just to get started.

Now, Microsoft is announcing that Xbox One consoles in the United States will include a digital copy of Forza Motorsport 5 for a limited time.

Turn 10 Studio’s Forza Motorsport 5 was one of Microsoft’s premier launch games for the Xbox One and took advantage of the console’s new trigger force feedback. The game was well received by video game critics and is an excellent game to get started on your new console.

Tracks in the game include the Bernese Alps, Prague Circuit, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, TopGear Test Track, Test Track Airfield, Road Atlanta Raceway, and many more.

Have you not purchased your Xbox One yet – does Forza 5 sweeten the deal?

Even bigger Yoop if it comes with the titanfall edition too! :D

Is that a screenshot from the game?

Micah Dawson says:

I don't think so. If so I need my own Xbox one.

StuBeck says:

Doubtful, its a picture of a car with Forza Horizon decals on it. 

Not just on the car, but in the background too. Definitely not a screenshot. =)

Unless it's a nostalgia thing and FM5 has a secret Horizon car

And I see the old WPC logo too...

Zeroplanetz says:

I honestly was like hmmm rethinking now lol

doeboiO says:

Looks like an f430 or enzo

Niavlys77 says:

Man, that is a gorgeous car.

Hoping this Forza 5 + Xbox One bundle comes to Canada at some point..

Robborboy says:

That us a photo. Not the game.

Niavlys77 says:

Yeah.. duh. What's your point?

Does it sweeten the deal? Absolutely. But until they actually put icing on the cake instead of sprinkling sugar over it, I'm not gonna bite. :P

coip says:

What more do you want? It is already the most feature-rich console in the history of the world and now you am an get either Forza 5 or Titanfall free with it. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me.

Rug says:

It can do less than the 360 at this point. It has potential, but right now its the most featureless console. Especially if you consider the necessary subscription to make mostly buggy features work.

Forza is good, however, there are some tweaks needed. Mainly in the menu and options. Also, it could do with some more tracks. That said, I love it, I can't stop painting cars, spent hours on them. And the racing is very good. Made my Xbox One purchase much more compelling.

Xsled says:

That is my frustration with Forza. So many missing tracks from previous versions. Still love the game, but darn it I want my tracks back!

peachy001 says:

I never was much into it before, but got it as mine came with FIFA, and I am not a fan. Painting is great though, although my designs are very basic. Got a few downloads though.

sinime says:

Hmmm, so if you get the Titan Fall console, does it include Forza also?

Tommy Parker says:

Had the same question.

morpheusxp says:

I too am dying to know the answer to this question.

StuBeck says:

No. This is to move hardware, and give those who want a X1 but not Titanfall a game with the system.

Daylife says:

Forza is a DLC cash cow, dont waste your time! 

You're telling this to smartphone users where 99% of games are IAP cash cows of far worse levels. =P

el-ojo says:

So, ummm...I wonder when M$ is gonna give early adopters some goodies. Sucks to be me :-(

StefEBear says:

Keep calling them M$ and you'll get nothing by $hit from them. Then it would suck to be you! 

lemonsteveo says:

You'll get a hug from Ballmer himself. Satya if you like.

el-ojo says:

I'll take a hug :-) But seriously if this happened a year later it would be ok. This early in the cycle, I think we should get something...a cheap arcade game, movie, anything will do.

dkp23 says:

sucks that i didnt wait to get one, all i got was an xbone that was unfinished :(

coip says:

And 3 months playing amazing games like Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, Forza 5, Ryse, Peggle 2, Plants vs. Zombies: GW, Max: Curse of Brotherhood, etc.

Big Supes says:

Forza 5 should have been called Forza 3.5 as it has less tracks and cars than 4. What a disappointment...

StefEBear says:

yeah I got FIFA14 down here in Australia. and I'd have MUCH prefered to have gotten Forza, (it's great fun)

I've had to buy Forza and the Fifa is still unused (and never will) I need to sell it 

Lucky for you that the option to sell it is there. This deal only gives you a download code...

StefEBear says:

That's what I got for FIFA as well. a nice printed card with the DL Code hidden inside.
