I may suck like a world class hooker at racing games, but at least I…Crap, I got nothing. That being said, I still enjoy racing games, even if I happen to be terrible at them. Forza returns this year, just in time for the Xbox One launch. Here’s what the special edition for that game will include
The Forza Motorsport 5 limited edition comes with your usual fancy cover, but the rest of the extra content available is primarily digital. According to Xbox Wire, you’ll get the following vehicles with which to angrily chase after motorcyclists when those bastards dare to overtake you:
- 2011 Audi RS 3 Sportback
- 2012 Aston Martin Vanquish
- 2013 Ford M Shelby Mustang GT500
- 2013 McLaren P1™
- 2013 SRT Viper GTS
Players also get access to some VIP Membership which includes the following:
- 2x player reward acceleration
- Access to exclusive multiplayer events
- Exclusive in-game player card badge
- In-game gifts from the Forza community team
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! More cars to be exact. The VIP Car Pack includes:
- 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 S/C
- 1987 RUF CTR Yellowbird
- 1991 Mazda #55 787B
- 2011 Ford F150 SVT Raptor
- 2011 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
And that’s the Limited Edition of the game wrapped up. Oh wait dammit, there’s another duper edition on the way. The Day One version of the game has “Day One commemorative packaging with artwork that matches the Xbox One Day One console design” and the following cars:
Day One commemorative packaging with artwork that matches the Xbox One Day One console design
- 2010 Audi TT RS Coupe
- 2013 Ford Focus ST
- 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera
I like the Limited Edition so far. Most days, Extra digital content is a bunch of fluff that has no real impact on the game. Which is what you’re getting here in a smaller amount for Forza 5, along with a crapload of other more relevant downloadable goodies. Top that Gran Turismo.

i don’t like these special editions.
it feels more like they’re removing content from the game, and charging extra to have it all.
that said, with FM4, i did enjoy getting those gift cars from Turn 10.
